New Delhi: Online travel companies are making life easier for frequent travellers who don’t have credit cards by giving them the option of paying cash on ticket delivery.
At a time when your entire holiday can be planned online, not having a credit card can be a handicap when you want to book your train or plane tickets. But now websites like www.yatra.com have come up with the option of cash payment on their websites. What you have to do is first book your ticket online, and then pay later, in cash, to the collection agent who delivers the ticket. Yatra.com has already started the service in some cities and plans to cover around 100 cities by the end of the year.
“As airlines start reaching smaller cities, like Surat, Bhopal or Cochin, we will start extending services to people there,” says Mudit Khosla, founder, yatra.com
Sites like cleartrip.com and ezeego1.com are also set to offer a cash payment option. Cleartrip will start the service in Mumbai in a month's time, and Ezeego1 plans to offer the cash payment option on a trial basis
Neelu Singh, COO of Ezeego1.com, says the company will open 300 shops across India where customers can make transctions.
Ezeego plans to open shops across the country where customers can go make their payment at a later date.
