Amazon India on Wednesday said it has partnered with the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) to provide its customers with the facility to book reserved train tickets on its platform.
“For the introductory period, Amazon.in has waived the service and payment gateway transaction fees. With this launch, Amazon Pay adds another travel category, offering its customers a one-stop-shop to book flight, bus and train tickets, ”Amazon said in a statement.
It states that customers will get cashback on their first train ticket booking. With this new offering, customers will be able to check seat and quota availability across all train classes on the Amazon app, and can use Amazon Pay Balance Wallet to pay for tickets.
Customers will be able to check PNR status for tickets booked through its platform. Customers paying with Amazon Pay balance will get immediate refund in case of cancellation or booking failure.
“Last year, we started booking flights and bus tickets on Amazon. With the facility to book reserved rail tickets on our platform, we are enabling travel in any mode preferred by customers, ”said Vikas Bansal, director of Amazon Pay.
