Last Minute Bookings Online

Since there is a very high demand for train travel it is recommended that you make your rail reservation well in advance. Last minute train ticket booking system is called the tatkal booking facility. You can get your tatkal tickets from anywhere on the go just by logging in to your irctc account and following a few simple steps.

Here are certain tips that might come in handy while making your last minute rail reservation online. The very first thing to keep in mind while booking tatkal tickets is that you must have a high speed internet connection. As the number of seats in tatkal is scarce the internet speed matters a lot for a successful booking.

Tatkal booking tips

It is recommended that if you are looking for last minute rail reservation you use your personal network rather than using your workplace network. Irctc allows only two tatkal tickets to be booked using a single network IP address. Hence using your personal network for using the tatkal rail reservation system is highly recommended.

The tatkal portal for AC booking activates at 10 am while that for sleeper class bookings is activated at 11 am. Hence whichever class of travel you prefer stay logged in to your irctc account at least 2 minutes before time. Another very important tip to successful last minute reservations is that use a fast browser such as Mozilla Firefox or Google chrome. Use of add blocker on your browser will also improve your loading speed considerably.
