For the first time ever you can get full refund even on tatkal ticket cancellation. 


Customer need to pay a nominal fee per passenger and can cancel the ticket anytime 4 hours before scheduled departure/chart preparation whichever is earlier and can get full refund.

On cancelling a confirmed tatkal ticket on irctc you will receive zero refund where as on ConfirmTkt you will recieve full refund on opting free cancellation.

Now you dont need to worry about increased cancellation charges.

Always choose free cancellation option while booking a ticket and be assured that you will get full refund.

Confirmtkt Version 7.0 – More ways to get confirmed ticket, Voice enabled Train Search and more

Dear ConfirmTkt users,

We have released some exciting updates in latest version. Below is the round up

New Same train alternates will boost confirmation chances for your journey

Originally WL17 -> After alternates- Available

Same train alternates help increase confirmation chances of a route which already has waitlisted train(s) by showing you suggestions

which include booking trains for different combination of stations and then boarding/deboarding at stations of your choice. While there

were already 4 types of same train alternates which gave intelligent suggestions to boost confirmation chances, we have added 2 more

types to give even more options to the user

  1. Overlapping Alternates
    1. For example as shown in the image above,if you are going from Bangalore to Chennai and you are unable to find tickets,
      you can perhaps book from Bangalore to Mukundaraya-Purm and Katpadi to Chennai in the same train and swap seats at Katpadi
  2. Multiple classes alternates
    1. There can be cases where you may not be getting a ticket in the same class all through the journey but may get a confirm tkt if you ,
      for example, change class from CC to 2S mid way through the journey as shown in the image

Voice Search (Beta)

Confirmtkt has just launched Train search via Voice. You will now be able to search for trains by clicking on voice icon on the home screen

of the app and speaking your query. You can for example speak कल बंगलौर से चेन्नई तक की ट्रेनें This is available to some

users already and will be progressively made available to more users progressively as we improve the experience .

Update the app now to checkout the Voice feature

How to use Vikalp option on ConfirmTkt

What is Vikalp Scheme?

‘Vikalp’ literally means option so under Vikalp scheme, each passenger has an option of choosing upto 7 trains as an option or backup to currently selected train where a passenger may be waitlisted. Departure of these trains could be after 30 minutes to upto 72 hours of the original train.

For example you booked your ticket on IRCTC website and your ticket was wait listed when the chart was prepared. Under Vikalp scheme, your ticket can be allocated to the next available train, which is going towards the same direction in any class equivalent or higher then the class you booked in previously. So you could get upgraded to 3AC from SL.
