365体育官网"Tatkal passengers can also avail full refund on cancellation while the Free Cancellation Protection is not applicable for Current booking tickets as of now," the company said in a statement.

365体育官网In case of partial cancellations, the full refund would be equal to the base fare of the cancelled passenger only.

In such cases, customers are usually required to pay hefty cancellation fees depending on how late they cancel the tickets. With the new Free Cancellation Protection, we would no longer charge any cancellation processing fee for train ticket bookings. Unlike other platforms, users can avail full refund Confirmtkt, thereby enjoying a certain level of flexibility," said Dinesh Kumar Kotha, co-founder and CEO, Confirmtkt.

365体育官网Confirmtkt uses graph-based technology and utilises multiple quotas available for travel by the Indian Railways to give its users a better chance of getting a ticket even for last-minute bookings.

The alternate travel options suggested by Confirmtkt would include options on the same train, options combining different trains, a combination of train and bus.

Currently, the platform serves about 5 million users monthly and books about 30,000 tickets per day. The platform is available in English and 7 other regional languages – Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Marathi, Malayalam and Bengali.
