Discounts of up to Rs. 3,000 would be given for tickets purchases by healthcare professionals till 31st December, 2021. Special fares and discounts can also be availed for serving Indian armed forces personnel while booking their tickets on EaseMyTrip.
Speaking on the initiative, Mr Rikant Pitti, Co-founder, EaseMyTrip said, “Healthcare workers have been on the front line, selflessly working through the ongoing pandemic. Since many of them are responding to the call of duty in other cities or have emergencies back home or short windows in which to meet their family, we are offering them discounted fares. In addition, as we celebrate our 13th anniversary in the industry, we are extending our special booking offers to the armed forces as a tribute to all the hard work in defence of the nation as well as their efforts in helping the country deal with the pandemic.”
Doctors can avail this special offer by applying the coupon code- EMTDOCTOR, whereas defence personnel can apply the code- EMTDEFENCE to avail the offer while booking tickets. Alternatively, one can simply choose the “Doctors & Nurses” or “Defence Forces” option while booking the ticket so that the discounts are applied automatically while checking out.
