The time for waiting in long queues for rail booking is long gone. You don’t need to waste your precious time in getting through hordes of people to get rail booking. You also don’t need to book your rail tickets through travel agents. Travel agents charge commission and as such tickets get expensive than usual. Indian railways have very well integrated online system where you can book rail tickets in a matter of few minutes. All you need is credit/ debit cards or net banking to make the payment and you can get tickets delivered to your shipping address. Alternatively, you can take print out of ticket or carry ticket in electronic format as well. Rail booking process is briefly described below:

After choosing the train, you can get fare by selecting a train and clicking on check fare. Select the train and provide passenger details like name, age, and berth preference of each passenger. Senior citizens can avail discount on fare which is around 30%-40% but need to show age proof when boarding train. You will now be asked to make payment. There are multiple payment options available including credit cards, credit card EMI option, cash cards etc. If you have chose i-ticket, tickets will be delivered to the shipping address.
