The service fees paid to redBus are not refundable.

Cancellations of reservations can only be made via the website or app. Cancellations made offline are not accepted.

Reservations made on redBus are subject to the Indian Railways/IRCTC cancellation policy and fees. The price could change based on the booking quota (tatkal, general, ladies, etc.) and the cancellation deadline.

Following chart preparation, railways automatically cancel all fully waitlisted e-tickets. After deducting redBus’s fees, the reimbursement in these situations is automatically paid to the bank account you used to purchase the tickets.

Trains may give elderly, female, and child passengers extra breaks or concessions. RedBus does not determine the scope or magnitude of the concession. Customers are urged to review the most recent railway policies to see if any savings are available.
