How to book online Van - Tehran tain?

Postby jaro » Wed Oct 16, 2019 9:33 pm

Hey guys,
Anybody have ever booked ticket for train on this route online? According to some informations in web it should be possible there - https://www.iranrail.net but no schedule found. I can't find the possibility for Van - Tehran, neither the recently inaugurated route Ankara - Tehran. Any tips how to book it? Or where/how can i book it traditional way?
Thanks in advance,
Jaro

There's a travel agency that's offering tickets online: https://www.ambertravel.com/turkey-iran ... riz-ticket - prices are obviously somewhat inflated.

I used the site that "sevhoff" writes about. I used them in September, and it worked out great.

You cant book Turkey to Iran online (but you can book Iran to Turkey online)

Thank you guys.

Unfortunately they add pretty huge commision, so i will take a risk and try to buy it on the station in van. Or in case of no availability i will take a bus to Tabriz.

Cheers!

Do let us know what happened, I am interested. Btw, there must be some other companies offering the same service, no?
