  • How to make a booking from outside India on
    Right now October 2019 is it not possible to make a booking on directly.

    You can create an account, get the OTP SMS, verify your email and phone number. But there is a bug that prevents you from paying the "International Users to pay registration /mobile updation fees for the mobile numbers with ISD code other than 91 and i.e. Rs.100 +GST"

    If you try to make a booking, you can search for the trains and see them. But when you click to "book", nothing happens. No error, nothing - but you cannot book.

    There is a solution!

    1) You need to create the account on (username and password)
    2) Then use to find and make your booking.
    3) During this process you get passed back to the site, and using a "back door" you can then make the payment for "international users".
    3) Pay Cleartrip and everything looks good.
    4) Maybe you can stop at this point.
    5) About 30mins later Cleartrip cancelled my booking and refunded the money - no explanation was given.
    6) Now your account will work, and you can search, book and pay on that site!
