Good experience

Our experience in jet airways has always been nice. We are loyal jet customers and always fly jet airways. The flight was comfortable and it took about 2 hrs to reach. Baggage isn't allowed on Srinagar flights though. But camera and laptop bags etc are allowed.

Bad experience

Mode of Transport: Flight

Spicejet offered low price air ticket for return journey but in Sringara airport they have given trouble by saying this ticket for only hand luggage and extra money was collected for extra luggage. Don't be fooled by Spicejet, before booking flight ticket read rules and conditions.

Mode of Transport: Car

Everything is good and amazing. The view was extraordinary. There is cold temperature so we stopped in Patnitop. Rest all are good and amazing. Recommend to travel by road or by taxi, its easy to reach but travelling is too long. Not recommended for senior citizens and infants.

A clean and timely flight

Sep 30, 2015
Mode of Transport: Flight

We choose to go by Go Airline as it offered us cheap tickets. Delhi airport has lot to offer. Can shop eat and roam around. Dont expect much from srinagar airport. Though flight was comfortable and clean. Staff was also courteous. Prices for online merchandise was overpriced. Food was decent. So overall a nice experience.

Good experience and must travel in A/c coach

Aug 3, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

It was good, comfortable night train journey. But yes should travel only in A/C coach, otherwise it is not so great. Train arrival and departure is on time so that good. A/c coach toilets were fine. Food was also okay types, not much variety. Otherwise overall its fine in aspect to money. It's fine as I have traveled till Jammu for 4-5 times in same train so this seems fine until you are not looking for Shatabdi or Rajdhani.
