We are two girls coming to India for the first time and have a lot of worries and concerns. Can you give us some advices?

Here are our problems:
1. Although we've been trying to book the domestic flight online, it all seemed to fail coz they don't accept foreign credit cards. That's why we are thinking about turning to a travel agency in Mumbai for a help. do you have any better ideas if we can't book domestic flights online? Or, can you recommend a travel agency in colaba?

2. While we are using IRCTC to book e-tickets for trains, we are very confused about the train station's names. Some do look very simliar. For example, there are "karmali" and "Karmaliyapura". Which is the train station we should arrive at Old Goa? And, there are "Ernakulam" and "Ernakulam town". Which should we arrive for Ernakulam (Kochi)?

3. Are the bus between hampi and mysore, mysore and kochi air-conditioned? We are afraid that without air-condition, we couldn't endure the heat in bus for a long journey.

Any of your kindly replies are mostly welcomed. We do need you to share some of your experiences. Thank you again.

Karmali for Old Goa, though not all trains call at karmali, so also search for Madgaon.

Ernakulam Town and Ernakulam Junction are the 2 mainline stations for Cochin.

Please look at this thread, even if you are not in India.: Have you seen Jonathan Spollen?

He could be anywhere now: You might have met him, be able to help, or give information.

I dont knw abt the bus availability from hampi to mysore to kochi but you will get a/c buses from bangalore to this destinations. So you can plan like :
1. Hampi to bangalore to mysore
2. Mysore to bangalore to kochi
