The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) and Amazon had previously collaborated to provide its customers the ability to buy reserved train seats on Amazon. Due to excessive usage of the IRCTC app, which causes the site to go down on occasion, it will be more convenient for Android and iOS customers to buy tickets through the Amazon App instead of the IRCTC website.
What exactly is the IRCTC?
IRCTC or commonly known as the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation is an auxiliary of the Indian Railway services that are concerned with passenger pleasure.
Booking IRCTC Tickets through the Amazon app
However, it is currently only about the catering and tourism sectors. IRCTC also provides various features such as online eTicket booking services, which receives approximately 7 lac ticket bookings per day, making it the second busiest site in the country for various operations such as ticket booking, ticket cancellation, merging, and registration for various services provided by the Indian Railways, among others.
DIscounts for Booking Tickets using the Amazon App
Furthermore, consumers who purchase tickets using the Amazon App will receive a 10 percent discount on their tickets, with a maximum payback of Rs 100 per transaction.
Prime members would be eligible for a 12 percent discount on railway tickets, with a maximum reward of Rs 120 per transaction. It is only applicable for a short time period that the cashback offer is available.
Additionally, Amazon has eliminated the service and payment gateway transaction fees for the duration of the promotional period. The ability to buy flights and bus tickets was already available on the Amazon website.
