I have been trying to book a train from Cochin to Goa.
I have encountered the following problems:

1. The IRTC website no longer accepts international credit cards, so I cannot book online.

2. I tried, where they say there is a Wait List of 5 on the trains, but when I try to book it, I always get an error message.

3. I tried booking via Mangalore, but none of the Mangalore-Goa trains coincide with the time of arrival of the Cochin-Mangalore trains.

If anyone can help, I have a few questions:

- Should I take the chance to not book in advance and just go to the train station once I am in Cochin?
- Is there any other way I can book this train online?
- Is flying the only other option, or is there some other way I can get from Cochin to Goa?

We were originally planning to take the overnight train on the evening of January 27, 2011.

In addition to what aarosh asked. It is possible that your card company is blocking the transaction as it is originating in another country. Check with them to confirm and assure that it is you trying to make a booking. Additionally cards should be VBV ot MSC compliant (Verified by Visa/MasterCard SecureCode).
