This is how you can order food online for your parents on the train
On the often long train journey, food is a must companion!
However many times the options that are available to us are not the most appetizing. We are often stuck choosing between stale food packed hours ago during the pre-travel haze or unhygienic snacks from station vendors.
When it comes to our parents, it is understandable that we want to help them attain the most healthy and tasty food options they can have on the train.
Here’s how you can order the perfect meals online on the train for your parents, and leave all the subpar options behind at departure!
How to order food online on a train
Ordering food online while on a train is now a convenient option for travelers. Zoop India, which is affiliated with the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), lets you access a wide variety of food options.
You can visit zoopindia.com or download the Zoop mobile application from the play store. Once you are on the website or application, select the “Food” option.
You will then be prompted to give your train number, so please make sure you have that information available. The website also includes a search feature that allows you to search for food options by providing your PNR (Passenger Name Record) number or train name/number or station name. This makes it easy to find the food options available at your specific train station.
So, simply pre-order your meal and have it delivered to your train seat with Zoop! This saves you tons of time and hassle during your journey.
With a wide selection of options to choose from, Zoop lets you order your favorite dishes from the best restaurants in the area and have them delivered right to your train seat. Whether you’re in the mood for a traditional Indian dish like paneer butter masala or biryani, or something more international like a pizza or burger, Zoop has you covered. With fast and convenient delivery, you can enjoy a delicious meal while traveling in style.
Zoop also allows you to set your preferences and caters to your special dietary requirements. For instance, you can easily search for restaurants that comply with strict Jain dietary guidelines by clicking on the Jain food option on the app or website. You can also make bulk orders in case the whole family is taking a train trip! For making the bulk order, you can click on the Group Order option and fill in the requested details.
Zoop is like an all-around train travel buddy. Food ordering also lets you find relevant information conveniently, like your PNR status, train timetable, coach position, platform location, and more.
So what are you waiting for? Give your parents the gift of a country-wide food carnival instead of a plain old train ride by treating them to some delicious, pippin’ hot food from Zoop!
