How does it work

After booking tickets on BookMyShow, users will either be able to ‘Book an Ola’ or ‘Schedule an Ola’, depending on the time remaining to the movie show or event. Once the desired option is selected, users will be automatically redirected to the Ola app to confirm the cab booking. Commuters will have access to Ola’s key features including driver details, ride estimate, ride tracking, in trip navigation, SOS button, offline booking, and can pay seamlessly using Ola Money.

The feature, which is currently available only on BookMyShow’s Android app, will soon be extended to its iOS app as well. BookMyShow users already have the option of booking their tickets by paying through Ola Money, the popular digital payment wallet from Ola.
