It’s finally here, the SUMMER that we both hate and love. For, while the temperature is soaring, we also cannot resist the temptation of travelling to places where we can leave the hot and humid weather behind us. Also with long school and college breaks, summer becomes the ideal time to go on long holidays.
The best way to make the most of this season is by being well prepared, more so during long distance travel. And guess what? RailYatri also has some super cool products to help you beat the heat. Check out our Travel Store now.
So, get set for cool-cool journeys-
Hydrate it up!
Fluids in any form are the major saviour while travelling in the scorching heat. Keep bottled water with you or you can also fill up your empty bottles from water purifier booths at railway stations. Slurp natural drinks such as coconut water, glucose or nimbu paani at regular intervals.
Using half-frozen water bottles can be a good idea. You can also freeze mint flavoured water and sip it cold for a longer duration.
What’s in our Travel Store:
Gel Freezer Sipper: Buy these handy acrylic sippers and place them in your freezer for about 2-4 hours before your journey. Not only, does the liquid freezes but the freezer gel of the bottle freezes too, thus offering you a unique way to keep your beverages(water, juices, etc) icy cold even on long journeys.
Snack on plenty of cool treats
Instead of going for some solid and oily food, eating fruits such as watermelons, litchis, salads, and cucumber will surely keep you cool.
Let your skin breathe too, with STYLE
Opt for loose clothing (linen and cotton) and open-end foot wears. And guess what, they will go well with your summer fashion along with the scarf, hat, and sunglasses!
Go for flexible train choices
You can select trains with the shortest journey time to minimize your travelling hours in the summer heat, or maybe take the night train to avoid hot day-travel.
RailYatri Tip – You can now also book train tickets from RailYatri’s assisted train ticket booking service. And believe me, you will board the most suitable train.
Give window seat a miss
Well, this is probably the most common wish for all of us travelling by train. But getting a window seat in train during summers might become a suffering too as hot winds blow during the day. Best would be plonk yourself on the top berth and sleep it off or listen to soothing music on your phone.
Keep handy the hand fans
While some of our travellers might travel in AC coaches, many of us travel in general class. So keep handy those classic and stylish hand fans, at least some air of relief.

Getty-wetty at your pulse points
