MakeMyTrip has launched an accommodation platform called Rightstay which provides alternative stay options like villas, residential apartments, homestays and guest houses, similar to Airbnb.

Users and home owners can chat with each other before committing to booking the place, and rate each other once the transaction in complete. As of now, the company claims to have over 10,000 properties listed across 200 cities. Users can search Rightstay for the places based on the location and need to provide check-in and check-out dates to view the results. Users can also select the number of guests, the number of rooms they want to book, sort based on property types like cottages, bungalows or apartments, and other criteria like WiFi facilities, stay with host, lake view etc. As for the booking options, the company lets users pay after the stay on certain properties.
