Title: Train to Amritsar
Post by Paola on 11. Jan 2009 at 13:56
This is for any train lovers out there. I was impressed to find that you can book Indian RAILWAY tickets for many trains using this website :
So, I booked myself onto a train from MATHURA Junction to AMRITSAR Junction. I received confirmation immediately by email and an E-ticket. I was able to pay with a non-Indian credit card. Many of the payment options are flakey, and this is where the whole thing can easily fall apart, BUT if you happen to have a Citibank account, then the Citibank VISA option works perfectly every time. The failure rate at the payment stage is VERY high, but don't be discouraged. IF you find a payment method that works, the site is well worth the effort.
Incidentally, the Shub Yatra "Frequent Rail Passenger" club is a great idea but payment options are not the same as for the rail tickets and my last attempt (of about 30 !!) failed two days ago. I have written to irctc with my complaint. If anyone is interest I'll post the result here.
One of the fastest trains Delhi to Amritsar takes about 7 hours (Train No 4037 - DLI PTK EXP) DEP DLI 0800 > ARR AMRITSAR JN 15:20 (same day)
ANY RAIL ENTHUSIASTS OUT THERE, feel free to ask a question. Happy travel to Amritsar !
