Cost Saving Affair
As compared to airways, travelling by train will cost you very low especially if the distance is quite long. Also, you can get a 40 % rebate if you are a senior male or female citizen of age 60 and 58 respectively. This rebate is applicable to Sleeper Class, First Class, AC Chair and First Class Chair in all trains.
More Comfort and Relaxation
When you are travelling by airplane, you are bound to a seat for next 2-3 hours. However in the trains like Rajdhani & Shatabdi, one can sit or sleep in his own private berth. Also it is safe because you can keep your luggage with you and enjoy private moments with your companions.
Proximity to Market Areas and City Centers
In stark opposition to airports, railway stations are most often situated nearby lodges, cheap hotels and market areas. Despite of taking cabs or taxis to move out of the precincts of the airport, you can access your hotel within a few moments of stepping out of the train.
Carry More Luggage
When travelling in India by trains, you are allowed to carry luggage up to about 100 kilograms. This is beneficial for those whose luggage carries gifts for friends and relatives.
