Amazon India has launched its train ticket booking service in partnership with the IRCTC (Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation) that lets users book train tickets from the Amazon app and mobile website. With this addition, the e-commerce giant now offers bus, flights and train ticket bookings across India on its app.
As part of the introductory offer, Amazon is offering 10% cashback for non-Prime members and upto 12% cashback for Prime members on booking train tickets for the first time. Moreover, the company has done away with the service and payment gateway charges for the time being in order to attract more customers into using its train ticket booking facility. Users booking a journey ticket from Amazon can also make payments using Amazon Pay service. In case users need to cancel the ticket, making a transaction from Amazon Pay ensures you get an instant refund.
