Need for speed? check our lighter version!

Monday, December 15th, 2008

No, we have not ventured into gaming and racing! Its just an update that 90di will now open with lightning fast speed even if you have slow Internet connection with  lighter version of 90di. So if the site is taking time to open or you are in hurry just switch to the basic html version. It is bandwidth friendly and should open much much faster.

It still has all the essential features like train and flight availability, fare and booking links. We have changed the result classification for better clarity. Now search results are categorized as direct trains, train combination(routes involving more than one train), direct flight, flight combination and train+flight combination.

Standard version with full features is still there and you can switch to it anytime you want. Check it out and give your suggestions.

Availability for direct Flights and Trains between given two places

Thursday, December 4th, 2008

We have earlier added the functionality to find all the direct flights and trains between two places. We have enhanced this by providing the check availability feature.

For example, when you search for mumbai to kolkata you will get a list of trains and flights.

flights & trains between Mumbai and Kolkata

Now you can click on “Get Availability” link. You need to specify the departing station, arriving station, date and travel class (for trains).

Getting availability for train

Then we will get the availability for that train/fight.

Availability details for train

You can book the trains either at ClearTrip or at IRCTC.

We take you the home page of IRCTC, as you need to log in before doing anything.

But, for ClearTrip, we take you the page where all the details are pre-populated.
