Say goodbye to your train ticket confirmation troubles & hello to Railofy App!

Mumbai based start-up, Railofy, lets you travel by plane if your train tickets are not confirmed.

The Mumbai-based start-up, Railofy, is the first of its kind in India to launch a 'Waitlist and RAC Protection' service in the country. This service has been designed to solve the problems faced by train travellers who are unable to complete their journey on account of being waitlisted. The enterprise ensures that its customers embark upon their journey by providing them with flight tickets at the same price of the train's if they are left hanging by the railway waiting list.

Reservation and confirmation have never been easier!

Railofy has recognised the travel patterns and behaviours of the Indian masses to conclude that trains are a more preferred means of travel by most people in the country for their economic and affordable tickets. However, due to this appeal, a large population is eager to travel in trains, turning the task of getting a confirmed ticket in railways a herculean errand. Many people, on most occasions, have to cancel their plans due to being waitlisted, not making it to the confirmed journey chat. And this is what changes when one switches to the services of Railofy!

By employing the Railofy app, or by visiting its website, a passenger can enter the PNR number of their ticket. At this point, the traveller also needs to pay a fee, which is determined according to each trip. After this, Railofy keeps tracking the passenger's waiting list tickets. If the passenger's ticket is not confirmed until the last minute, the app provides a flight ticket to the passenger, at the same price as that of the train's.

Deepika Agarwal, a passenger and user of Railofy app said, "We had to travel from Mumbai to Delhi, and the tickets for six passengers were on the waiting list. After our tickets were not confirmed even at the last minute, we completed our journey through this app. The price of Tatkal ticket was Rs 4,000 and a flight ticket was around Rs 5,000. We took the waitlist protection from Railofy. We got a flight ticket for just 2,000 rupees after the chart was made."

"About 30 crore passengers in India face the problem of being put on the waiting list. We want the travellers to have no hassles during the journey. We started the app in January 2020 and in the first few months, only about 100 passengers availed our services and completed their journey," Rohan, a founding member of Railofy, informed sources. "Railofy service is currently available for all trains and across all its classes. The migrant labourers also took advantage of our facility amid the corona pandemic. Those who are returning to work again are also completing their journey through us," he further added. He also highlighted the fact that the app helps those passengers whose towns or villages are away from the airport.

Short Distance Commute is also covered!

The services of Railofy have also been extended to passengers undertaking short distance commute as well. The services have include bus facilities for shorter routes so that passengers have the least trouble.
