Book Hotels Just for a Few Hours with Chaturmusafir #PR


I really like how technology is evolving these days. Everything is available at our fingertips and just a few clicks can fix any worry.

This good news is mostly for Roadies, Day trippers and basically for everyone who travels a lot and loves to go on vacations. With website now you can for anything from 3 to 12 hours, and pay accordingly. Guest has to verify their account in advance before getting this facility.

And no, these aren’t just rest houses and lodges; they range, in fact, from budget to boutique and starred hotels..

In a nutshell: WHAT ARE MICRO-STAYS? 

  •  Disrupting the traditional 24-hour check-in-check-out cycle, micro-stays allow travellers to book hotel rooms for fewer hours and pay less too. 
  • While Japan’s ‘capsule hotels’ that offer tiny sleeping spaces to businessmen and its ‘love hotels’ for space-starved couples have been around for a while, micro-stays first become popular in Europe during the economic downturn of 2008, and then spread to the US and south-east Asia. 
  • Here, hotels ranging from budget to boutique and five-stars such as Courtyard by Marriott in Gurgaon and Sahara Star in Mumbai have begun to offer the option over the past three years. 
  • Websites and apps such as 6 Hourly, Stay Uncle, Chatur Musafir and HotelsAroundYou have also joined the game, acting as aggregators and tying up with hotels to offer packages in cities across the country. 
  • Options range from 3 to 12 hours, although many aggregators refuse to entertain unmarried couples.

The catch: Chatur Musafir allows guests to book hotel rooms in packs of 3, 6 and 12 hours. In 19 months, the website has seen 14,000 micro-stay bookings at 2-, 3- and 4-star hotels across 20 cities,  including metros like Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore, smaller cities like Jaipur, Kochi and Amritsar and pilgrim towns like Shirdi & Katra.

The story behind Chaturmusafir:
Two years ago, ad executive Preeti Jain and her husband Manish, a businessman, were travelling from Coimbatore to Jodhpur by flight and then train, with a nine-hour gap in between.
“We needed a room for, say, six hours. Just to wash up and relax. But we still ended up paying the full day’s tariff,” says Preeti, 35 Co-Founder . “We decided to do something about that, and that’s how Chatur Musafir [Smart Traveller] came into being.” 

With services like these available, my love for travel is just growing! :) Kudos to Chaturmusafir!
