IRCTC Rules

  • Kindly note that trekfit makes its tickets from irctc certified agents

  • We use intelligent AI-based tools like Confirmticket to predict the confirmation probability of your ticket

  • Tickets are made based on the maximum confirmation probability and solely depend on the remaining days for your departure

  • However, it is essential to note that the tool does not guarantee a 100% confirmation guarantee for waitlisted and RAC tickets every time and we do not hold any control to confirm tickets every time.

  • There might always be a chance that you get a RAC(half seat) or ticket may be waitlisted ticket instead of a confirmed seat and trekfit is not responsible for not providing confirmed tickets since IRCTC is a govt body and we do not hold any control over that.

  • It is always the best thing to book your trip in advance at least 20 days prior to improve your possibility of  getting a full seat on the train

  • The seat availability of trains depends from the season to season and since few routes have specific one or two trains running on the route it might get difficult to get a confirmed seat during peak festive and tourist seasons

  • Also kindly note that our agents will get in touch with you to provide alternate options for trains where you can hold a chance of a confirmed ticket which may have some monetary difference in the ticket amount which if you confirm to upgrade shall be liable to pay.

  • Premium trains like Rajdhani and Duranto have a fare of 50% on the higher side than regular trains however they provide the highest confirmation probability and you can always opt for the same.

  • In case you want to cancel your train tickets in the middle of a trip to opt for flight options you need to update us 36 hours prior to providing hassle-free cancellation last minute cancellations are not practically possible every time as our agents work in fixed time slots and there are various other factors associated to it.
