Planning to revolutionize the online travel booking sector, ConfirmTkt is all set to expand its online rail ticket bookings 5–fold by December. This will be done with the help of an advanced data and Machine Learning System that will predict confirmations for waitlisted tickets with the accuracy of 94% and suggest alternative travel options, if direct train tickets are not available. In addition to this it will also allow the users to track the train real-time, even without internet, with the help of mobile towers on the routes and the information generated by the customer. Further in near future it may also expand to a one-stop online platform to book cabs, air travel and tickets for other modes of transport. Founded in March 2015, this Bengaluru-based startup has already entered into a tie up with the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC).
