Can anyone advise me? I want to go from Goa (Margao) to Cochin - it's 15/16 hours on the train- unless anyone knows a quicker train? I can't seem to find one! I am only going for a few days and need to get back to Goa so over 30 hours travelling is a bit much for me - so i looked into flying and can only find Air India that fly from Dabolim to Cochin-but it won't let me book as i am not an indian citizen. Also looked into getting train to Mumbai then flying from there but it's over 8 hours on the train from Goa so it's swings and roundabouts! Has anyone done this journey can you advise me? Many thanks!!

Hi Carla

I had the same problem. Thankfully some nice people on this forum gave me some good advice and I am more than happy to pass it on to you. These are airlines operating in India


Hope they are of use to you.

We dont have a faster train or a direct flight to any major city in Kerala from Goa.

If u r looking at saving time,one option is to take Goa-Bangalore-Cochin or Goa-Chennai-Cochin by plane,but compared to train fare this is gonna cost u a bomb,almost 10 times more...

pls contact me for any more help that u may require on this...
