Yatra.com is India's leading online travel company. We provide information, pricing, availability and booking facility for domestic and international air travel, railway reservation, hotel bookings and holiday packages. We offer a host of travel services designed to make business and leisure travel easier.
Launched in August 2006, Yatra is ranked today as the leading provider of consumer-direct travel services in India. Yatra.com was recently voted the 'Most Trusted Brand of India' in the online travel category by Brand Equity. It also received the coveted 'Most Preferred Online Travel Company' award at the CNBC/Awaaz Consumer Travel Awards. Within this short span of time, Yatra has shown impressive growth by posting an average revenue of INR 300 crore a month with a volume of over 10,000 tickets and 600 rooms a day. The company achieved a gross turnover of approximately INR 2,500 crore during FY 2011.
The Indian travel industry has grown by leaps and bounds over the last decade. But the industry as a whole is still largely unorganised.

Yatra Travel World (our franchise partnership initiative) will bring the world of travel to the customer's doorstep by setting up a network of branded franchise outlets all over the country and offering a wide variety of services. With a well-known travel franchise business, you will get expert training, a proven business model and support that will definitely help you succeed. At Yatra, we have created a technology platform to make the complexities of the travel business much simpler. We offer best price assurance and online tools for instant bookings. As our partner, you will be able to leverage our strengths, drive more customers to your outlets and earn profit.
The retail model lends itself particularly well to clients who seek interaction across the desk to discuss details about ticketing, holiday packages and hotel bookings in a congenial atmosphere. This scenario offers a wonderful business opportunity to both Yatra and prospective franchise partners.
This section will give you an insight into our businessesand our franchise partnership model.
We look forward to creating happy travellers together!
Indian tourism, with a contribution of 6.23 per cent to the national GDP, can be considered as the largest service industry. This industry is expected to generate US $375.5 billion by 2018 at a 9.4 per cent annual growth rate. This up-swing in the travel industry is due to the emergence of the middle class and augmentation in the number of foreign tourists visiting India. Due to their hectic lifestyles, many people plan holidays for a break from their daily schedules. Moreover, the discounts in airfares and other travel sources and easy access to the internet have also led to the development of the travel industry. This growth has led to the success of organised travel players. The concept of travelling has changed considerably in the last few years. The booking process today is just a phone call or a click away with the emergence of organised travel players and adoption of advanced technology. The entire travel process has become quite convenient, ultimately leading to a tremendous increase in the number of travellers in India.
India is witnessing tremendous growth as the franchise industry is expected to grow at an annual rate of 40 per cent. Such growth can be attributed to the emergence of many new concepts in franchising. According to a detailed study by Francorp, 2012 is predicted to be a year of boom for franchising in the Indian service sector with new and exclusive opportunities. The travel industry remains a strong business sector globally and is expected to keep growing with lots of options for new investors and entrepreneurs. Travel appeals to almost everyone and starting a travel franchise can be rewarding because more and more people prefer to go on a holiday once a year or need to travel for other reasons. Taking up the franchise of a well-established travel company guarantees a number of benefits:
