Travellers booking packages for South India holidays will now be able to enjoy an elegant air-conditioned double-decker train ride between Bangalore and Chennai that has been started from 25 April, 2013.


Chennai-Bangalore AC Double-Decker Train Starts Operations

Leisure travellers booking holiday packages for South India have yet another cost-efficient and stylish way to explore the South Indian cities of Bangalore and Chennai. AC double-decker trains have been flagged off from April 25, 2013 to make the journey between the two prominent Indian holiday destinations of Chennai and Bangalore more comfortable and stylish.

Vacationers who are planning to book all-inclusive packages for holidays to the southern part of India to relax and rejuvenate and get a taste of country’s heritage and culture may opt for the rail journey between South India’s two international gateways.

All coaches are fully air conditioned with chair-car seating. The new train will leave Chennai at 7.25am and reach Bangalore at 1.30pm. From Bangalore, it will leave at 2.40pm and reach Chennai at 8.45pm.

With comfortable seating options and fine onboard amenities, the service is going to be a hit among budget tourists booking holiday packages and opting for train travel over expensive domestic flight tickets to cutback on the spiralling cost of their holiday packages in India. Both cities are among the most popular destinations in southern India and attract millions of tourists into booking packages for holidays to the country.

The new double-decker service also maintains high-level onboard safety measures, allowing foreign travellers booking holiday packages for India to relax and enjoy their train ride between the two destinations.
