Salient Features of IRCTC Tourism E-Bedroll Services

IRCTC Tourism E-Bedroll Services

Many trains of the Indian Railways travel more than thousand KM’s. The passenger traveling for that long distance has to spend more than a day on the train. In AC class, bedrolls are provided by the railways and the charges are included in the fare. But that’s not the case in Sleeper Class.

In Sleeper Class, bedroll isn’t provided to the passenger. But you can get one if you want. IRCTC Tourism offers E-Bedroll services using which you can get a bedroll for your journey in the train.

I love to travel and I prefer trains for the most part as it is an inexpensive way to travel along our huge country. There are lots of problems that I go through and I share my experience with others to keep them well informed.
