Booking Train Tickets in India for foreign visitors
Generally speaking, it is not possible for foreign visitors to book train tickets using their credit cards. After a number of incidents of fraud using stolen credit cards, many transport companies stopped accepting international cards for online payment.
For this reason, we tend to buy tickets for our visitors from this end to get around this problem.
You can buy tickets at the time of trabel, however if you want either first class or second class seats, they generally need to be prebooked.
