HOW DO I GET ABOUT ON INDIAN RAILWAYS?

The Flag is not a licensed Travel Agent (we don't need to be!) so we do not include any domestic or international travel in our tours (most prefer to get it themselves anyway!), however we're happy help guide you through the confusing Indian Railways booking process, once you've booked our 'Omelee Omelee' Hotel Tour, as this is part of our service we provide. The Flag has travelled the length & breadth of India on the Railways since 1996 and highly recommend this as an exciting way of traversing India.

If travelling independently or enjoying our Ticket, Shirt & Chicken Dinner 'Omelee Omelee' tour and wish to join us on the rails, feel free to book the following journeys to match. You need this information when making online reservations, after you first register with Indian Railways.

India Flag When registering you will be asked for an India Mobile number. Use any random string of 10 digits starting with 9. If this number has been used, keep trying different numbers until successful. You cannot proceed without this number being accepted.

India Flag The postcode field will only accept 6 numbers. Just use 110001 (New Delhi)

India Flag When activating your account you will be asked for the verification code sent to your dodgy India mobile number. Do not worry as the verification number will also be emailed to you.

India Flag You can still book waitlisted (W/L) trains as you will be assigned seats on the day if not before 'in lieu of cancellation'. Once booked log into your account to check your progress up the 'waitlist'.

India Flag You can now only book trains on Indian Railways using American Express so you need to register with MakeMyTrip (and Indian Railways) to use Visa or Mastercard. Good Luck!
