Online PR News – 26-September-2012 – New Delhi / Delhi – New Delhi (September 25, 2012): Maharajas’ Express, the pride of royal trains in India, has created a buzz of sorts with a landmark festive offer for Indian Nationals including PIO’s & NRI’s. The offer is for the festive Dussehra and Diwali 2012 season. According to IRCTC representative, when two adults book on any of their royal train tours, instead of paying full fare each, they will be entitled to a discount of 50% on the second ticket. This applies also in the case of one adult and one child traveling together and sharing a cabin. A family of two adults and two children sharing two cabins gets a super bargain. Two adults with a child sharing a single room are entitled to a 50% discount on fare for the second adult ticket and a 50% rebate on the child fare. The usual fare is in US Dollars. However, Indian nationals can avail of this fantastic offer by paying the fare in equivalent Indian Rupees according to RBI rate on the day they make payment.
Making the announcement the representative said that this is an unprecedented offer for Indians to help them get a taste of royalty that Maharajas’ Express offers. This offer is open only to Indian nationals and is valid for the Indian Panorama starting 20th October, the Indian Splendour royal train tour starting 27th October, the Treasures of India luxury train tour starting 11th November and the incomparable Gems of India royal tour starting 14th November.
Indian nationals need to present a copy of their Income Tax returns/ any other documents proving their NRI/PIO status while booking their tickets. This offer is limited and is available only on a first come-first served basis. Given the prestige and special aura of Maharajas’ Express, said the IRCTC representative, we anticipate a rush from Indians looking to give themselves an extraordinary experience during this festive season. It is more than likely that there will be a huge demand. Full details of fares for the various cabins, destinations, facilities and terms are posted on the Maharajas’ Express website.
The Maharajas’ Express is the ultimate when it comes to luxury train tours in India. The Indian Panorama royal train tour covers Delhi, Jaipur, Ranthambore, Agra, Gwalior, Khajuraho, Varanasi and Lucknow in eight days and seven nights. The tour takes in the princely cities of Bikaner, Jaipur, Ranthambore, Agra, Jaipur and Balasinore in the same duration. The Treasures of India royal tour is a shorter three nights four days tour of Delhi, Agra, Ranthambore and Jaipur. The Gems of India regal ride takes visitors to the Taj Mahal at Agra, Ranthambore, Jaipur and back to Delhi in a four days three nights extravaganza. Maharajas’ Express is a veritable palace on wheels and each guest receives princely treatment from start to finish.
IRCTC spokesman said that despite the hugely reduced Indian nationals taking advantage of this festive season discount offer will be entitled to all the premium facilities and services aboard the Maharajas’ Express and off it during the tour.
