Assure Your Trip Starting from Rupee 1
Making sure of reaching the destination is the best possible thing we can help you with. And, taking the anxiety off your mind is what Trip Assurance will do for you.
This is the game changer feature in the travel industry that cares about the passengers. This is why for a few routes and trains, at certain moments, Trainman will charge just Rs.1 as TA Fee, while booking the train ticket in the waiting list status.
For example, search for trains from New Delhi to Mumbai for the date of your journey, and see train number 22222 – CSMT Rajdhani with the trip assurance tag. Now, if the train is providing the waiting list tickets with the confirmation chances are 90% or above, and you decide to opt-in for Trip Assurance, you will be asked to pay only Rs.1 only.
With that amount, your trip will be assured with Trainman. It means if your ticket remains waitlisted even after the chart preparation, we will be providing you with a confirmed flight ticket.
