How Skyscanner Helped in Organizing An Important Interview

I had just two days to finalize my tour plan and confirm to the prospective employer that was one of the top MNCs in India and I was being called for an interview for quite a senior post. I had to travel to their various locations so as to cover three rounds of interviews. They had credited my account with a lac rupees which was the upper capping for the whole tour. First of all I had to travel to Bangalore and stay there for two days. I was quite panicky as the telephonic assistance of my current official travel desk had denied any tickets availability at such a short notice. I had no other choice than to explore the newest of the travel site launched recently that claimed to the one of the best and unique in its own kind. I was hopelessly desperate to get some help from somewhere to finalize my tour.

The site was so helpful in assisting in all kind of travel requirements one can think of. Whether it is air travel, hotel stay, bus travel or local cab booking, it is innovative enough to help you in all this. First of all I had to book a return air ticket for Bangalore for which the relevant information was available in a few clicks. A ticket for Bangalore for next day and return after 3 days from Bangalore itself. Return ticket costed me Rs. 20,558 and now the balance with me was Rs. 79,442.

A night stay was required to be booked in a hotel in Bangalore as on the same day of landing and the site was quick enough to suggest me a hotel and the price for a night's stay. With Rs. 9,553 further shelved off from my kitty of 1 lac the balance left with me was Rs. 69,889.

Next day after a short discussion with their HR, I again had to travel to their plan for a discussion with their operations head. This time I had to travel with 3 members. This time we decided to take a luxury car for the daylong tour to avoid lethargy and long travel syndrome. The luxury car cost us Rs. 25,268 and now the balance with me was around Rs. 36.5k.
