When it is peak time for visiting places, i.e. when it is summer holidays in schools, parents usually take their children for vacationing to distant locations. Railway booking then takes place at a hypersonic pace. So, if you know beforehand about the approaching leaves from your office or holidays that your children or other members of the family will enjoy, get the Railway Booking done in advance. Otherwise there is no guarantee that you get confirmed seats. It is no surprise to find seats reserved two months ahead, especially during peak seasons. Of course, you will not want to spoil your trip only because of your carelessness. Do not rely on tatkal railways booking. You may get seats by chance but not always. A planned trip with advanced booking of transportation and accommodation always facilitates a wonderful vacationing ahead.
