You can buy train tickets through Uzbek Railways, see our Uzbekistan train page for details. This means it is not necessary to use our services, it is cheaper to use Uzbek Railways. Only if you have technical issues with the Uzbek Railways website we recommend you to use our ticket buying service.
If you want to buy an Uzbek train ticket in advance, we can help you. You might want to do this to avoid long queues at the train station, or to make sure your train is not booked out in advance. You cannot print the tickets at home yet, but they can be delivered at your hotel in one of the major cities in Uzbekistan.
Understand that this is a VERY expensive service: you will pay triple or quadruple the price for a train ticket because of the many hoops the operator in Uzbekistan needs to jump through to get the tickets. If you can buy it yourself somehow (online or in-person), this is much to be preferred: cheaper and quicker!
Make sure that you already have your Uzbek visa in your passport, because you will be asked to send a scanned copy of your visa and passport.
