So , we recently had Black Friday. Entire nation went crazy on that. At various points, Malls on black friday turned into Blocked Friday. But this wasnt the scene only on physical stores sales but also online stores get massive traffic on the online stores as well. It was so massively crowded that the websites crashed. But thats not all folks. I thought it would be the appliances and the fashion garments/accessories which got all the crowd, to my astonishment, it was the same for the crazy sale on the online booking of tickets and hotels too. I mean, who would have thought about this. There are few sites i was going through and out of no where i thought of checking out Sastaticket.pk . I was blown away with the response i saw on the website. I mean record-breaking online sales with growth of 700% on Black Friday. The real upswing was evident in the purchasing of tickets and hotel bookings.
During the four-day event, travellers enjoyed amazing deals and discounts across multiple categories including hotel reservations and online flight booking for international and domestic purposes.
Let me tell you more about the how this started. The booking frenzy started at midnight on November 25, 2016, with an influx of millions of travelers to witness what Black Friday had in store for them. With more than 250 tickets sold and over 150 bookings in just four days, Sastaticket.pk marked the highest record in the history of online booking portal. Woah, isnt thay amazingh. who would have thought for this for a ticketing website.
The event also witnessed a surge in domestic travelling as more and more people booked hotels in northern parts of Pakistan. A total of over 50 hotel reservations were made through online portal.
