Set your alarms for 4 p.m., folks. MakeMyTrip is offering serious discounts between 4 p.m. and midnight as part of their “Cashless Travel Carnival”. The sale on flights and hotels continues until Thur December 8.
Bigger offers include discounted fares on Turkish Airlines flights to the U.S.A. and Europe from New Delhi and Mumbai. For flights to the U.S.A., you get ₹8,000 off per head on a minimum booking of ₹15,000—flat ₹4,000 discount and ₹4,000 cashback to the MakeMyTrip wallet. (Bookings made with Citibank and Axis cards get even more discounts.)
Travellers to Europe get ₹6,000 off per passenger—flat ₹3,000 discount and ₹3,000 cashback to the MakeMyTrip wallet. There are also discounted flights to South East Asia on Malindo Air. These deals share a coupon code (CASHLESS), which is only valid on a single booking per card, per email address.
The hotels on the list aren’t too shabby either. Score discounted stays at The Lalit, Sterling Holiday Resorts and Neemrana Hotels, including the charming heritage properties in Pondicherry and the Dutch-colonial town of Tranquebar. The maximum discount is ₹5,000, but bookings made with Citibank and Axis cards will get an additional 30 per cent cash back.
The Cashless Travel Carnival also has packages, complete with flights, hotels, and activities, to Kerala, Thailand, Spain, and Italy. Travelling in the peak season—generally so much more expensive—just got a whole lot easier on the wallet.
