MakeMyTrip Ltd., an online travel company and budget hospitality provider OYO announced their partnership whereby the latter’s chain of hotels across India, Malaysia and Nepal will be listed and available for booking on MakeMyTrip across its popular OTA brands, MakeMyTrip and Goibibo. The partnership also aims to add momentum to India’s rapidly growing travel sector by bringing together OYO’s base of economy, mid-segment and vacation rentals assets and the online travel customer-base served by MakeMyTrip, Goibibo and RedBus.

“We are committed to bring the best of travel experience to our customers, it’s why we offer them a variety of options across price segments, particularly in the fragmented economy and mid-segment hotels, where there is a greater need to build assurance around stay experience.
