Top 10 hotel booking and comparison websites in India

Know the top 10 online sites that help you in booking hotels for your trip in advance. Plan your travel with care by knowing about the location and services of the hotel and how they can help you in making your travel more fun or relaxing.

Planning for a trip for holidays, business or personal purpose needs a lot of information on hand, as we don't want to feel out of place when we are out of town.

Today we are mostly dependent on websites which keep us informed about whatever we want to know and reminding us whatever we need to know. But to get all the relevant information at one place and book a hotel room, we need to find out the correct websites that will place us in a hotel that makes our trip comfortable and hazard free. While looking for a website that prepares us best before a trip and save our time, money and effort, we need to look for certain features in a website without which we remain unprepared and rather end up wasting more time in front of the computer screen. These are the following elements we need to look out in the hotel booking websites:

Website Menu
A website can be relied upon while doing a hotel booking online only if it includes certain features in its website menu like star ratings, prices, amenities, guest ratings along with an easy navigating system.

Information of Hotels
A good hotel booking website needs to list down all the information of a hotel along with its correct internal and external images. It will be still better if it can include the correct feedback on the hotel along with a detailed description of the hotel including the route map, hotel room tariff, amenities, contact details, special facilities, rules and regulations, services and user reviews.

Booking Procedure
If you can book a hotel room through a website in one go and in simple steps, only then it can be rated as a reliable one. The payment option should include all the possible modes available. It should not be too complicated and repetitive. The payment procedure should work swiftly without making a user wait for indefinite period of time.

Customer Care Support
Customer Care Support should always be an active feature in any hotel booking website. After the primary information imparted in a website, there is always a requirement for human communication and help from the host of the website. Every user should be able to put up their own unique queries and requirements and a good hotel booking website is the one which responds warmly and instantly to such things.

The author has done a great job in listing some of the best sites to make hotel bookings in India for travellers. India is a big tourist destination for foreigners as well as for Indians. The big advantage India has is that there are places to visit for every season. So, there is no such thing as off-season for travellers in India.
