What people are saying
Now, let’s see what recent Makemytrip customers have to say about the agency’s service. Upon reading some online customer reviews, Makemytrip might be experiencing an all time low.
Frustrated customers had many complaints regarding the agency’s multiple mistakes in processing of flights. According to some reviews, Makemytrip has no value for money at all. Customers request for cheap flights are being diverted to deals with higher fares by the aggressive service representatives. For example, if a customer wanted to book a cheap flight, customer service representatives would prolong the conversation and go out of their way to promote higher fares.
There were positive reviews on TripAdvisor, unfortunately those reviews were dated back in 2012. The most recent reviews are very bad.
Their website is nothing new, but the interface is user-friendly. Mostly everything is accessible from the home page. There is a check in button for travelers looking for flights, cheap deals are presented for travelers on budget. It’s possible to alter your flight through customer service, however, most complaints online are directed towards customer service. Travel arrangements can be easily managed, they also offer bus and train transportation.
Their customer support is open 24/7 and a FAQs sections is accessible for commonly experienced issues. Makemytrip also offers email service for additional information. Here are the descriptions to Makemytrip’s customer service from customers, “unresponsive, dumb people, unprofessional and unethical.”
Their main slogan is “it’s all about travel…,” pretty good but the question is, were they able to fulfill their job as an online travel agency? Their head office is located in India Pvt. Ltd., Tower A, SP Infocity 243, Udyog Vihar, Phase 1 Gurgaon, Haryana – 122016, India.In 2012, Travel Distribution World Asia Awards named Makemytrip as the best travel innovator. Makemytrip was also the most visited travel website from 2005-2009 according to ComScore, it would be probably better if the award was most trusted travel website. In 2013, Makemytrip was a dominant market-leader with 47% market share.

We hope these MakeMyTrip.com reviews were helpful, they unfortunately are not doing so well, Makemytrip really needs to be critical and careful in operating their business. Remember that the customer is always right, not the customer service agent. Makemytrip is India’s number one travel site, do you think they deserve that title?
