Train travel comes with its usual list of hassles, which leaves the traveller short of breath but not anymore. Travelkhana.com recently announced launch of many new services, which ensure comfortable train travel for the commuters. This was done in a press event where all leading media institutions of the city had participated with their journalists and PR professionals for representation. The entire management team of Travelkhana.com was present at the venue to receive and furnish the journalists with their answers to the various questions asked.
In his speech, the CEO of the company welcomed the gathering with a brief rundown of the company successful run so far with exclusive and convenient train food delivery system they have put in place for the customer’s benefit. He narrated how their relentless efforts had borne fruit with receiving the prestigious IAMAI Award for Best Travel Website for the year 2014. The company, thus, decided to implement the pipeline projects they have been developing over the years for making the train journey easy for the customers. These projects include online train status checking, ticket booking facilities and train timetable facility. All the details have been updated on the website’s home page.
The website as a core duty provides train commuters with a choice of food including vegetarian and non-vegetarian varieties of Punjabi, Mughlai, Continental and Chinese food. The service also takes people with food reservations in mind and provides an option for Jain food too. There is a wide variety of snacks and beverages too, and the service operates over 500 platforms across the country, serving people in 5000 trains. The delivery and packaging are charge-free and the food arrives on the seat – so you don’t have to take any stress. The website plans to increase their services and the newly launched ones will be systemized very soon.
The Operations Manager was of the opinion, “Our service with the food delivery has been widely appreciated – we have already served more than 4 lac customers till now and the number is increasing every second. We also provide customized service for large groups, which make it easy for pilgrimage groups or students. We are proud to announce more services for the travellers as train travel in India is not that easy. From ticket booking to food arrangement and checking the status of the train to find the destination reach time, the hassles of the travel almost never end. People have started preferring other modes of transport due to these difficulties – we plan to make it easier for them. These services we have added on the portal will ensure convenience and smooth transaction and make travellers like train journeys again.
The services have started but are yet to be popularized to reach full potential. They will soon be followed by more new services as the company plans to expand their website’s versatility.
