Global travel technology company, OYO, is spread across 35+ countries with the largest hotel footprint in its headquarters – India. Given the platform’s vast presence across the country, it is easy to spot an OYO almost everywhere. Today, in a first, the company unveils its most booked OYOs across India. OYO reveals that Pune emerged as the most booked city in West India and the fourth most booked city across India. Other cities such as Delhi NCR, Bangalore, and Hyderabad top the list for most booked OYOs.
With nearly 20 hotels, a majority of OYOs in the top 50 list are located near important transit hubs and key corporate complexes, demonstrating high consumer demand for properties that are centrally located near commercial centers with easy access to transport. This is followed by a high demand for hotels surrounded by nature and lush green views among leisure travelers.
The high demand for OYOs around key transit hubs can be attributed to the platform’s effort to offer affordable, hygienic stays having important amenities such as air-conditioning, pleasant ambiance, fast net connectivity with easy accessibility, and flexibility in modification of bookings in case of any last-minute changes.
