Mumbai, March 26, 2008: Travelguru - India’s largest hotel network and premier travel solutions provider in association with Express IT Logistics Worldwide Ltd. has launched a new value-add feature to provide more value to its customers by way of Cash-on-Delivery (COD). Travelguru commenced this service in late 2007, for its customers in 20 cities. This recently extended to 50 cities, and by May end it will be available in 90 cities in India.

The significant aspect of Cash-on-Delivery is that the customers can do their hotel bookings online and make payments in cash which will be collected by Travelguru on delivery of the hotel booking vouchers at the address provided by the customer.
