When it comes to training journeys, nothing is more convenient and light on the pocket than them. But train journeys can be a bit longer at times depending on the destination and the route and hence choosing the right seat is important. So here are some tips on how you can choose the right seat. 

Understand Different Types Of Seats 

Indian railways have seats divided into AC and Non-AC. Under AC we have AC first class, AC two-tier class, AC executive chair class and AC three-tier. While under non-AC we have first-class, Sleeper class, unreserved class and second class. Different types have different prices.

Sleeper Class Or Higher Class

The sleeper class is the same as the AC 3-tier class without AC. If you are a traveller who is on a tight budget or someone who would enjoy talking with local folks, sleeper class is for you. It is better to choose sleeper class or higher class seats as 2S is not much comfortable and hence not recommended.
