We’re thrilled to announce that we have now partnered with India’s largest travel retail operator – Travel Food Services [TFS] to enable passengers to pay with Freecharge for their food orders in a swifter and secure way at select food outlets across Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Mangalore and Bangalore airports. In addition, the F&B centers called the ‘Rail Dhabas’ at Pune and Vishakhapatnam railway stations operated by TFS will also offer digital payment facilities through Freecharge.
Travellers can pay using their phone and registered mobile number with Freecharge and complete the transaction using the OnTheGo Pin in less than 10 seconds! With this partnership, we’ve crossed another milestone in our journey to make our consumers move from cash to cashless.
Additionally, we are also creating an end-to-end digital payments experience for passengers by enabling rides to airports and railway stations cashless. The good news is that over 15,000 taxis across Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore are already accepting payments via Freecharge wallet! 🙂
