Seriously,
WHAT do I do? I already am waiting till the last minute and tickets are being bought up by the second and I finally have my itinerary figured out and... nobody wants to take my money. I know the credit cards are good and the india rail site supposedly takes american express and cleartrip supposedly takes visa. I am getting this message on the cleartrip site:
Sorry, we do not accept the card you have provided, please try again with a different card. Click here to see a list of accepted payment options

and a "communication error" at the irctc site.

Any other alternatives or other websites that actually work?I have tried a couple others too and they are either for Indians or the makemytrip goes to a blank page!

Cleartrip does accept Visa, Master, Amex and IRCTC is reported to be accepting AMEX as recently as last week by a member here. Communication error does not mean refusal, just means communication error, so just retry.

Other sites: Makemytrip.com, yatra.com.

Thank you for the post. It was actually my AMEX that was refusing the site not the other way around. I will say that if you do want to buy a bunch of tickets with your amex it will be a hassle! I had to call them twice because they kept freezing my card. I still don't understand why cleartrip won't take my visa, but I'll try again tonight.

Winkar

Is it a debit card you're using on cleartrip?

If so, try telling cleartrip that it's a credit card (select 'pay by credit card'), I've heard this works.
