Trainman, a new app related to travel ticket booking, has introduced a new feature. This app guarantees confirmed tickets for train trips to passengers.

Know what is Trip Assurance feature

Trainman App has introduced a new feature called ‘Trip Assurance’. This new feature ensures a guaranteed way for restless train passengers in the dilemma of waiting list to complete their journey. Anyone booking a train ticket through Trainman will be able to check the status of their ticket from within the app itself. If the passenger does not get a confirmed ticket, the app will display a prediction meter showing the probabilities of the ticket being confirmed. In case the ticket is not confirmed before chart preparation, Trip Assurance will help passengers find and book last minute travel options.

How this app works

The biggest feature of this app is the prediction meter given in it. If a passenger has a ticket prediction meter of 90 percent or more, the app will charge a trip assurance fee of Re 1. If the percentage is less than 90 per cent, the company will charge a nominal fee depending on the class of ticket. Notably, the trip assurance fee will be refunded to the customers if the train ticket is confirmed at the time of chart preparation. However, if the ticket is not confirmed, the trainman will provide the passenger with a free flight ticket to complete the journey.
