How early can I book?

Train tickets are generally available 60 to 180 days before the date of your travel. The earlier you book your train ticket the better. You will get the cheapest fares and avoid your class of service being sold out by booking in advance.

How to get the best fares?

To get the best fares and save money, you need to book your train tickets in advance. Don’t wait for the last minute, as cheaper seats sell faster. Train tickets are available between 60 to 180 days in advance.

But there is another trick. You can get cheaper train tickets by choosing to travel during off peak times. They are more affordable than morning and evening trains along with those running on holiday eves, Friday and Sunday afternoon.
