The rooms are pretty much same as the double bed rooms with one additional pull out bed.
Are there different types of rooms (Suites,
standard rooms etc.)?
All the rooms on the Palace on Wheels are the same size and have attached bathrooms / toilets. Passengers in the room do not share the bathrooms with anyone else. The interior
decor changes in the coaches but as far as the rooms are concerned, all
Single, Double and Triple occupancy rooms, they are the same size.
What are acceptable modes of payment?
We welcome Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover cards or
Personal Checks drawn on a US bank. We can provide wire transfer details
if you would like to send the payment by bank transfer.
Do you charge anything extra for credit card
How soon should I book?
Our recommendation is to book as soon as you have an idea of
when you would be traveling. Lately, the rooms for peak season get sold
out 8-10 months before departure. It will be in your best interest to
book early in order to avoid disappointment later.
Do you work with travel agents?
Sure. Our travel trade colleagues that promote Palace on Wheels are our
biggest strength and we welcome travel agent inquiries.
What is the capacity of the train?
There are 52 rooms on the train and they are allocated to Single, Double

passengers on any fully-booked tour.
Is there a waiting list for sold out dates?
Yes, we maintain a waiting list for the sold out departure dates
for the Palace on Wheels. If you find a tour date that you really want
and it is sold out, please contact us for adding your name to the
