Is there a way to book train tickets from abroad thru international credit/debit cards (mastercard/amex/visa)
I have tried, and both of which dont accept international credit/debit cards.
IRCTC website claims to accept amex cards but my transaction continuously failed to go through.
Have used this time but I am told this website too is going to stop accepting international cards since
Jan 2012.
Ppl any ideas if there is any alternative site to booking train tickets using international cards ?
Any help appreciated.

I am using Amex cards for my transactions for internet booking and there was no hiccups. When entering for amex cards, you have to enter details of first name, last name (middle also if there), four digit number and the 15 digit card no, and the pincode. If the details are correct, the payment goes through successfully.

With internet bookings I presume you mean IRCTC website with an amex card issued abroad. I did try three times but the transaction did not go through. I even checked with my bank to see if there was an authorization attempt, cuz sometimes overseas transactions are flagged off as suspect. Bank confirmed no transactions attempted. So I reckon, its something to do with the payment gateways or IRCTC not accepting overseas cards

Any news on the reply from Cleartrip?
IRCTC still does not accept any int. cards. This is simply paranoid behaviour on their side especially during the money making season from frogien tourists, NRI's visiting India in DEC-JAN...
