Been trying to book a train in India for about a month but without an Indian mobile number, it isn't possible. Ive even tried a UK Indian travel agent with no luck. Does anyone have any recommendations? Im desperate to get the train down to Goa rather than fly.

Cheers guys! :D

No it isnt possible through that site. You need an indian mobile and as i live in the UK this isnt possible. Wanted the Mandovi express from Mumbai to Goa

Hi again.

Sorry, just spoke to a local agent close to where I live and he is sorting it for us.

Many thanks for the help though Eric :)

You could always wait until you get to India - unless you're there during some festival, you're bound to be able to get a place on one train or another. At least check on the above-mentioned site to see what the fare should be so that your agent doesn't take some monstrous commission ...

Hey mate,

https://www.irctc.co.in/ is the official website for Indian Railway. The tickets for Mandovi express frm Mumbai to Goa is approx. INR 300 for sleeper and INR 800 for AC. If you still cannot sort it out with your travel agent then feel free to email me the details on -snip-.Welcome to India. :) Bon Voyage!
