Pakistan Railways offers an online booking service for passengers who wish to purchase train tickets in advance on their official website and application. The online booking system is a convenient and hassle-free way to book train tickets, allowing passengers to avoid long queues and wait times at railway stations with just a single click.
To book a train ticket online, passengers can visit the Pakistan Railways website (www.pakrail.gov.pk) and click on the “e-ticketing” link. They will be prompted to create an account by entering their personal information, including their name, address, and contact details.
Once the account is created, passengers can search for available train services, select their desired travel dates and times, and choose their preferred class of travel. They can then proceed to the payment page to make the payment for their tickets using a credit or debit card.
After the payment is processed, passengers will receive an electronic ticket (e-ticket) via email or SMS, which they can print out or save on their mobile device. Passengers must carry a valid form of identification, such as a national identity card or passport, along with their e-ticket when boarding the train.
It is important to note that online booking is available for a limited number of trains and classes, and some popular services may sell out quickly. Therefore, it is advisable to book tickets well in advance to ensure availability.
