What People are Saying
Their website and operation is pretty straightforward, and that’s good, but everything still comes down to how they fulfill everything they offer.
On Tripadvisor.com, negative and positive comments collide. Some people saying their policies doesn’t support their goal to provide cheap deals. One traveler was frustrated for having been a victim of Yatra’s misleading offers, the hotel she believed to be a 5-star room wasn’t part of the 5 star hotel.
Other complaints were targeted to their flight deals for being expensive and hard to manage. One patron booked a round trip for 4 tickets; after confirming the payments, his itinerary didn’t show confirmation for their return flight.
Looks like certain improvements are needed, don’t you agree?
