EaseMyTrip has launched a new feature that offers discounted air tickets to users with waitlisted train tickets.
To use the offer, the user can visit the EaseMyTrip website, click on the ‘Train Waitlisted’ option and enter the unique PNR number. Once it is confirmed that the train ticket is waitlisted, the user will receive flight options for their preferred routes with additional discounts of up to 50 per cent.
The feature is an effort undertaken by the company to encourage travel bookings by providing additional options and benefits. The feature enables passengers to discover last-minute alternate travel options in case of unconfirmed train tickets during these unprecedented times. This offer will not only protect users from the uncertainties associated with waitlisted train bookings but also offer them an upgraded travel option at a discounted price. The feature is also aimed to support the recovery of the travel and tourism industry which has faced severe disruptions since the onset of the pandemic.
Speaking on this unique offer, Rikant Pittie, Co-Founder, EaseMyTrip said, “There are still concerns regarding confirmed bookings among train journeys, which are acting as a barrier to travel recovery. This unique feature will provide additional flexibility, convenience, and eases the financial woes associated with an expensive last-minute flight. At EaseMyTrip, we are committed to enhancing the overall user experience, and we believe that the launch of this unique travel upgrade feature will strengthen the travel sentiment during such unprecedented times.”
The new feature is in line with a slew of offers EaseMyTrip has launched this year to revive the travel sector. The most recent initiative launched by the company is the full refund on domestic air ticket cancellation due to medical reasons.
