- Hi DavidThanks for writing.. Check out the Indian Railways website for availability and schedule of trains. You can reserve your seats online on this Railway website through credit card.Only thing, the railways don't courier your ticket overseas. Check with your hotel in Delhi to hold tickets for you.For the classes available, CC is chair car class, an air-con compartment. 2S is a non aircon sitting compartment.CheersNitin

- Hi friends
How is the credit card scene in India .... is it sort of safe to use
your credit card in new Delhi ... I guess this Railways website (that
Nitin recommended) must be okay ..... i usually try to make my
purchases in cash only .... you can call me chicken or scared but
don't call me anti-Indian ... lols
A friend of mine is travelling to India in November, she made some
reservations at a hotel last week and yesterday her credit card
showed some purchases in India that she has no idea about
man we guys are really smart in India .... ha ha ... she has not even
landed yet and her credit card shows some purchases that she never
made .... i guess it is easier for us to know what to trust since we
grow up here but it must be hard for the firangs

- Hi SarjuThanks for writing after such a long time... Man you are seriously missed on board..!!!Using credit card on Indian Railway site has never been a problem with me.. Have been using it since the service was launched for the past 1 year now. Have used it on Rediff / Bazee also and never had a problem. These sites have dedicated safe servers and if you notice the url on these sites is https://www.xyz.com than the usual http://www.xyz.comGiving out card numbers while making hotel, car rentals or even with the travel agents can be a big problem and is fraught of dangers of being used by some of the employees of these concerns. There was a scam earlier this year where the swiping machines were copying even pin numbers from the card.The other best option is to have a debit card. You can use it quite convienently and is a safer option than CC plus is widely accepted in India.For your friend, please inform the hotel about the fraud. The hotel must be having a reputation to protect..Nitin
