Train ticket advice needed!

Post by Bethandrew »

Hi,

We are planning a trip to Uzbekistan in February and intend to do a lot of travelling by train, however we do not yet have a fixed itinerary. I notice that Caravanistan are able to book train tickets for us in advance, but I was wondering:

1) How easy is it to purchase tickets in situ?
2) What is the risk of not being able to get our desired train? (I noticed something about places on trains booking up quickly - is this also true in February, out of main tourist/travel season?)
3) Is it any more expensive to buy tickets on the day of travel instead of in advance?

If it is easier to book in advance through Caravanistan, will we also need to print off tickets etc. before flying out?

I was also a little confused by the timetables on the booking page - is it the case that there are only one or two trains per day between most cities?

Many thanks!

1. It's pretty easy.

2. In February should be fine to get your tickets on the spot the day before, it is not the busy season.

3. No.

4. Our agent in Tashkent will bring you your tickets to your hotel.

5. For best and newest timetables, check the timetable websites on the Uzbek train page.
