We are a family of 4. 2 adults and 2 kids of age 5 and 7...

I understand i got to buy 3 tickets. 2 adults and 1 kid above 6 yrs..

What about the kid below 6 years? He cant just enter the train without the ticket?

How do we reserve a seat for him on the NEX without a ticket?

Please and Thank you

Hi there,

Yes, he doesn't need a ticket so you'll have to carry them or have them on your lap during the duration of the journey. You cannot reserve seats for a child under 6 years old I'm afraid.

Kind regards,
