About Trip Assurance
Trip Assurance is designed to help passengers discover and book last-minute alternate travel and financing options in case the train ticket remains unconfirmed before chart preparation. “If the prediction meter indicates 90% or above, then the Trip Assurance fee would be ₹1 and if below 90% then there is a nominal fee charged depending on the class of the ticket," the company said in a statement.
