Why choose Cleartrip (CT), and not IRCTC:
With CT, it's easy and hassle free!
You can try IRCTC first, and if it doesn't go through try CT.
Example: A train ticket through IRCTC cost Rs 522 (includes service charge) from Jaipur to Bikaner (class 3A). The same ticket would cost Rs 552 via CT.
Practical information before you start booking:
Here we go! :-)
Type the 3-4 first letters of the city or use the station code. Don't type in the whole name -- you'll be given options when you type the first letters.
Choose the train you want to travel with.
Then click on the "Check availability and book".
If you want to see the schedule for this particular route, click on the train name. The schedule tells you which stations the train passes through, distance in km, departure and arrival time at each station and train details (which days it runs).
You can also get a map view. If you click on the map view, you'll be redirected to a Google map.
When you've clicked on "Check availability and book", the number of available seats or berths will turn up (if any).
The number is outlined in green.
Click on "Book".
Check that the information is right: date, route, time and berth.
This is where you log into CT (if you have an account).
You don't have to register with CT to book train tickets in India.
If you don't want to have an account, just type in your email address (this is the email address which Cleartrip will send the electronic ticket to), and skip the light grey area that says "I have a Cleartrip Account and password."
Fill in your information.
If you want: You can check off "Save this information in my profile and prefill it for me next time"
This is where you make the payment.
Click on type of payment you prefer: Pay with Net Banking, Pay with Credit Card, Pay with Debit Card, Pay with Cash Card.
If you're using your VISA or Mastercard, click on "Pay with Credit Card."
Fill in your card information.
Double check that the information on the right column is correct before you complete the payment.
VOILA! You have your tickets! Check your mail :-)
