How To Cancel Trains Online

A quick summary of the process

Let’s get a clearer understanding with screenshots.


Signin to your Cleartrip Account

Signin to your Cleartrip Account using the email address you used while booking with us. We don’t have the concept of “guest bookings”". If you’ve booked with us, you have a Cleartrip Account. Don’t remember your password? Retrieve it with the forgot password feature.

Train Cancellation Step 1 -- Signin to your Cleartrip Account

Select the trip you want to cancel

In the “Upcoming Trips” section, select the trip you want to cancel by clicking its Trip ID.

Train Cancellation Step 2 -- Select the trip you want to cancel

Hit the “Cancellations” link

On the trip details page, click the “Cancellations” link that appears in red.

Train Cancellation Step 3 -- Hit the “Cancellations” link

Select the passengers to cancel the booking for

Now, select the passengers you wish to cancel the booking for, and hit the “Review Cancellation” button at the bottom.

Train Cancellation Step 4 -- Select the passengers to cancel the booking for

Review your selection and refund amount

On the next screen, run through the passengers selected to cancel the booking for and the refund amount.

Although the refund amount reflected here is accurate in most cases, don’t panic if it isn’t. This is just an automatic computation based on the fare rules and restrictions provided by IRCTC and the Indian Railways, and the computation can go wrong sometimes. We’ll make sure you’re refunded the exact amount you’re entitled to. There are no additional cancellation charges levied by Cleartrip for cancelling train bookings.

Once you’re sure everything is in order, hit “Yes, cancel now” to immediately cancel the booking(s) for the selected passenger(s).

Flight Cancellation Step 5 -- Review your traveller selection and refund amount

That’s it – you’re done!

Your refund status will be shown on the next screen. Refunds are processed from our end within 24 hours of cancellation. However, depending upon your mode of payment and your bank, it may take anywhere from 3 to 14 working days to show up on your account statement.
