Increasing use of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Big Data is driving better user experience, MakeMyTrip claimed.

Low penetration of hotels booked online presents large opportunities of growth in India, according to the presentation.

While the current online hotel booking penetration rate is just 15 per cent in India, it is about 30 per cent in China, 41 per cent in European Union and 46 per cent in the US.
