Time is money. And that is why many of us cannot take out time for the simplest of things such as booking a train ticket.
With traffic the way it is and distances increasing day by day, it is a horror just to get to the train station.
And you really don’t want to make the trip two times – once to buy the ticket and once to actually travel. The good news is that you only have to make one trip!
How? By simply booking your ticket online.
Depending on where you are and the specific rules of the train service that you want to travel through, you might be asked to do an online booking and confirm by sending an email to them.
This is really easy. Emails of this type are quite informal and can be written in any manner that you choose to write them. All you want is that your ticket is booked and confirmed.
However, you might need to check the tone of your email to make sure that you do not sound overbearing. And that is all that you need to do to make sure that your ticket is booked and a confirmation email is sent to you.
But even though it is easy peasy, lemon squeezy, let us help you out by providing you with a sample email:
Sample Email to the Booking Officer to Book a Train Ticket
Subject: Ticket Booking
Dear Booking Officer:
I am interested in traveling from Denver to Glenwood Springs on June 10, 2015, and would like to book a return ticket for myself. Your online system is not working at the moment so I thought it would be pertinent to send an email and see if I can book it this way.
Ideally, I would like to travel on the train that leaves Union Station (Denver) to Amtrak Station (Glenwood Springs) at 11:15 am each day. When I looked through ticket availability, I saw that there are still 50 seats available on the day that I want to travel on. I would appreciate it if you would book one ticket in my name – Amanda Good – and inform me so that I can make the payment online.
I can be reached on (111) 111-1111 if you need any further information from me. You can also contact me by replying to this email. Thank you very much.
