Daraz, the leading online marketplace in the country, has launched DTravel, a channel through which the platform’s customers will have easy and immediate access to bus tickets for intercity travel.
The new feature, the product of a partnership with Bookme, allows Daraz customers to browse routes, timings and prices from 18 different bus services including Daewoo, Bilal Travel, Islamabad Express, Skyways and Rajput Travellers. DTravel, therefore, is a convenient and unique one-stop solution which eliminates the need for customers to visit different ticketing platforms to search for tickets that suit their preferences.
DTravel offers a seamless booking service, allowing customers to pay for their tickets with their credit and debit cards. A confirmation is sent to the buyer through email. Daraz has also taken measures to ensure that the process of returning tickets is easy and refunds are processed immediately.
“Today marks a great milestone for Bookme. Our partnership with Daraz has opened up a whole new world of possibilities for Daraz’ customers who can now purchase their tickets seamlessly. We are confident that this partnership will not only strengthen Bookme’s platform but also help further disrupt the e-ticketing ecosystem of Pakistan,” said Faizan Aslam, Chief Executive Officer Bookme.
“Daraz is a lifestyle app and our mission is to ensure that Pakistanis have easy and immediate access to everything that they need. Daraz Travel is another step towards that goal and we are confident that it will transform the travel landscape of Pakistan,” said Ehsan Saya, Managing Director Daraz Pakistan.
In 2019, Daraz focused on growing its product assortment and, at the close of the year, the platform’s catalogue came to boast 10 million products spread across more than 100 categories. This year, the Daraz is focusing on strengthening the digital goods category and has taken the first step with the launch of DTravel. Over time, the platform’s mission is to grow the new feature and offer customers access to flights, hotel bookings and rental cars to transform the travel landscape of Pakistan.
