Know before investing
In July 2021, ixigo was recognised as the best online travel agency on the Google Play store, based on engagement and usage.
The top management of this company is highly experienced and skilful, with industry-specific knowledge.
The technology-related expenses of ixigo lead to lesser operational costs. As a result, the operating margin is higher, and it will reduce with the economies of scale.
Some travel suppliers can eliminate or reduce the incentive or commission payable to the company for ticket sales. This can significantly impact the operations and cash flows of ixigo.
At present, the competitors of this firm have extensive market shares.
There can be a lack of proper coordination with travel entities.
