25% Discount on Luxury Train journeys

on selected routes

The luxury train travel concept originated in the British Raj when India’s status-obsessed Maharajas commissioned special carriages on the newly constructed railways. Opulently decorated with Belgian crystal chandeliers, French tapestries and Persian carpets, these rolling palaces became emblematic of the wealth and ostentation of the Princely States.

Modern-day visitors can enjoy the experience in comparably elegant luxury trains operating in India. Aside from the supreme level of comfort, the main advantage of travelling in such a style is that you get to see and experience much more of the destination in comparatively a short time, moving from place to place in the night while you sleep in the comfort of your luxurious, air-conditioned cabins with ensuite facilities, lavish amenities white-glove service, gourmet cuisine. Your sightseeing at each port of call is conducted in air-conditioned vehicles by experienced English-speaking guides.

Several trains are travelling along different routes and at different price points. You can make your selection here:

More Luxury Trains in India

The Palace on Wheels

Launched in the early 1980s, the pioneering Palace on Wheels luxury train of the first of its kind remains the most popular, covering a route that ticks off an amazing number of stops in just a week. While some of the furnishings are beginning to show slight signs of age, this doesn’t detract in any way from the overall experience, delivered by a highly trained, unfailingly courteous staff and a genuine experience of India. 

The Seven-night PoW route begins in Delhi every Wednesday and proceeds to Jaipur and the tiger reserve of Ranthambore. From there, you head south to the region’s largest fort, Chittaurgarh, then to Udaipur before crossing the Thar Desert to Jaisalmer. The Blue City, Jodhpur, is next, followed by the world-famous bird reserve at Keoladeo and Agra, where you visit the Taj Mahal.

The Deccan Odyssey

The newest of the crop differentiates itself by focusing principally on less accessible parts of central India but also offers a couple of routes incorporating the highlights of Rajasthan and the Golden Triangle. The one we most often recommend approaches the region from the south, via Mumbai and showcases the unique landscapes, wildlife and historic sites of the state in regal style including the great cave temples of Ellora and Ajanta and opportunities to spot tigers in the wild in the Pench National Park.

Departing every Saturday from Mumbai, the 7-night - the 8-day journey can also be taken in reverse, starting in Delhi and ending in Mumbai.

Check out details here> The Deccan Odyssey: Maharastra Splendour

Extensions for the Deccan Odyssey:

Because they end in either Delhi or Mumbai, any of the routes outlined above may easily be extended with a beach break in Goa. You could literally leave in the morning and be flopped on a sun lounger under a palm tree in the afternoon, lulled by the sound of the surf on the Arabian Sea! Whether you're looking for seclusion or a lively resort, your TransIndus consultant will have plenty of suggestions.
