New Delhi: You are planning to book online train ticket from irctc website then wait, you may get cashback if you book ticket from Amazon.
The Amazon India has decided to partner with Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) to offer train tickets booking service on its Android and iOS apps.
The company has also said that those passengers who are a member of the Amazon Prime will get up to 12 per cent off your first booking. However, it should be noted that the offer is valid only for a certain period.
“For the introductory period, Amazon.in has waived off service and payment gateway transaction charges. With this launch, Amazon Pay adds another travel category, thereby offering its customers a one-stop-shop for booking flights, bus and train tickets,” Amazon India said in a statement.
The Amazon has said that this feature will also allow the users check their seat and quota availability across all train classes, noting that service and payment gateway transaction charges have also been waived off for “introductory period”.

“With the facility to book reserved train tickets on our platform, we are enabling travel across any mode preferred by customers. Over the course of time, the Amazon app has become the one-stop destination for shopping and payment of several other use cases. Customers love the convenience we offer of shopping and paying – all in one single app,” he added.
