Hello,

We are traveling in a party o 4 and I would like to book for us whole "bay" in the 2AC couch.

Which of below options from e-ticket booking should I choose?


Berth preference does not guarantee allottment of prefered berth type. If you need assured Lower Berths or assured Compact Accomodation (in same coach) please select one of the options below:

1) Book my ticket only if atleast one lower berth is allotted.

2) Book my ticket only if atleast two lower berths are allotted.

3)Book my ticket only if all the above passengers are allotted berths in the same coach.

If no option/None is selected, the berths will be alloted based on the system logic, depending on availability at that point of time.


Thank you!

Mat

I tried booking a whole bay in 2AC about 10 days back and tried option

b) Book my ticket only if atleast two lower berths are allotted.

The system debited money from my bank a/c but did not book seats because it could fufil the above rule. The refund came a few days later. Tried the same option many times with the same result. So booked without any berth preference.

Later, when we made the journey we found 2 vacant lower births in the coach (dunno if these vacant berths were a result of some other cancellation after my booking.

Overall i don't think there is guaranteed way of choosing a bay in 2AC, i think it possible only in 1AC.

I would like to choose one these options. I'm wondering which one would be the best.

I will be booking 90 days in advance and I'm sure that most of berths will be avalible.

Option B best choice

Option b would be the best choice.

Hopefully booking 90 days in advance should help.
