    Mumbai : This monsoon, heavy downpour has caused waterlogging across many parts of Mumbai, leaving several commuters stranded and looking for alternative accommodation options in the wee hours of the day. Mumbai received 70% of average July rainfall in the first 6 days of the month, while weather forecasts predict heavy downpour in the coming weeks as well. To ease monsoon woes experienced by Mumbaikars, global technology hospitality company, OYO has rolled out upto 40% discount on accommodation in the city during heavy rainfall events.

    Annually, every monsoon, Mumbai witnesses’ extreme rainfall events, leading to many commuters getting stuck while attempting to travel back home during peak hours, or seek refuge at a friend or relative’s house near their workplace. OYO’s localised offering comes at a time when Mumbai has already experienced waterlogging for the past few days. Mumbaikars now have access to over 165+ OYO properties spread across the city, including major corporate and transit hubs such as Mumbai International Airport, Bandra, Khar, Santacruz, Churchgate-Colaba, BKC, Powai, Thane, Panvel, Airoli among others. The consumers can now avail this offer by clicking on OYO’s app or website and using the code MumbaiRain”.

    Commenting on this offer, OYO spokesperson, Shreerang Godbole, SVP – Product & Chief Service Officer said, ”Having lived in Mumbai for a decade, I have been through the stress of travelling back home during heavy downpour and waterlogging. Over the past week, we’ve seen heavy rains lash the city almost every day, leading to disrupted traffic movement and waterlogging across major parts of the city. We rolled out this offer to ease the challenges faced by Mumbaikars during the peak monsoon season in Mumbai. The lack of affordable accommodation options, combined with our presence across the city enables us to provide quality stays for stranded commuters. We hope that Mumbaikers benefit from this initiative, rather than risking travelling back home through waterlogged roads, or getting stuck in massive traffic jams for hours on end. Besides this offer, the ‘Nearby’, Pay at Hotel and  flexible booking modification & cancellation feature on the OYO app will be useful for commuters to make decisions on whether to head back home or just stay nearby during days of exceptionally high rains in Mumbai.”

    To avail this monsoon discount, download the OYO App, click on the red ‘Nearby’ icon to discover a valid participating hotel stay option in the neighbourhood, select the coupon code ‘MumbaiRain’ and hit the Book now & Pay at hotel button.
