Amazon India has now completed a partnership with the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), due to that now users from Amazon can book a train ticket directly from Amazon application on the smartphone or from their website.
The website irctc.co.in has been the sole site for the past few years to book a train ticket online. Users all over from India have been using it to book a reservation ticket for the last 2 decades and the website has always been successful in reserving online tickets since the year 2002. But booking an online ticket through the IRCTC website was not so convenient online as users found it confusing and difficult. They primarily depended on cyber cafes for booking online Train Tickets. But after this partnership with Amazon India, users will find it much easier to book a ticket online. Amazon India is one of the big players in the market, have again risen through their partnership with IRCTC and is looking forward to again grab the attention of their users through the cashback that they are providing now. Now users will be able to book the ticket through the same application that they used to do shopping.
Amazon is often known for its cashback offers that it provides. Amazon has a good record of providing additional cashback to attract users from all around the world. Amazon Pay also has a big hand in making people of India opt for an online mode of payment rather than using the traditional cash on delivery feature. Expectedly, Amazon has come up with its inaugural offer of providing additional cashback to its users. The cashback amount is different for Amazon Prime Members as well as normal users. For Prime users, Amazon is providing a total cashback of 12% up to ₹120 and for normal users, Amazon is providing a total cashback of 10% up to ₹100.
Amazon India has also confirmed that they are not to charge any sort of fee if users book their train tickets through Amazon. This can be considered as one of the best steps to attract new audiences to their website for booking tickets online as they will not be asked to pay any sort of charges. Amazon has also opened the facility to reserve a ticket just before thirty-minutes of departure of any train. With such exciting offers and cashback, Amazon India is looking forward to creating an impact on the Indian audience for booking of train tickets. Earlier Amazon India was successfully able to book tickets for air travel and buses and with the addition of train tickets booking, Amazon India will become closer to attract the Indian audience.
