Online Train Reservation has greatly helped in reducing the huge rush of passengers in the railway stations. To book tickets online you have to create an account on the website by providing various details like your name, age, gender, address, mobile number, email ID etc. You also have to accept all the terms and conditions stated on the form. Once it is submitted online, you will get the user ID and password sent to your email ID. Using this you can log on to the website and book tickets as well avail all other facilities on the website.
Online booking is possible on the website of Indian Railways and also on IRCTC. There are many other travel and tourism websites also where you can book tickets and get other information on trains. Payment is also made online through credit and debit cards. After the payment is made, you will get the e-ticket mailed to you and you have to take a printout of it to carry it with you when you board the train.
When you book online you have to be really fast, because a lot of people will be booking tickets on the same train from different parts of the country. Even a fraction of a second can matter when making online booking. Now there is the facility of ‘Autofill’, which hastens the booking process of tickets online.
