In a bid to offer a holistic experience to its customers, Bharti Airtel has started offering ride-hailing services through its My Airtel app.
Now, you can book Ola rides from the app itself and there's no need to keep a separate app for the same.
The company is also offering bonus cashback on every ride booked through its app.
Here are the details.
Notably, with the latest update of My Airtel app for Android, you will see a dedicated Ola section on the home page of the app. From there, you can easily link your Ola account and start booking cabs immediately.
Once you have linked your Ola account, you can choose a destination and book ranging from a bike to SUVs.
The booking process remains pretty much unchanged, but in this case, Airtel will be offering 25% cash back on every ride booked before January 31, 2019.
This could come really handy in saving more on long trips.
While the offer is interesting, it is important to note that there is no option to pay via cash on My Airtel Ola bookings.
Meaning, in order to get the cashback, you'll have to pay from Airtel Payments Bank.
Notably, a user can get up to Rs. 250 before the offer ends, but the maximum cashback per ride would be limited to Rs. 30.
As of now, Ola integration is live only on the Android app of My Airtel. We expect the feature to show up on the iOS version as well, but as of now, there's no word on the release date.
My Airtel's integration with Ola marks another handy feature for Airtel customers.
Just recently, the self-care app started showing account validity for prepaid customers, giving them an idea of their plan, its validity as well as the validity of incoming after the plan's expiration.
It even offers a combined suite of content, thanks to Airtel TV and Wynk Music integration.
You can access Airtel TV and Wynk on My Airtel by heading over to the 'Entertainment' tab on the home page. There, you'll find 'Trending', 'Airtel TV' and 'Wynk Music' sub-sections for streaming TV shows, movies, as well as music.
