Buying tickets on Peru Rail

We plan to visit MP sometime mid-September. I was looking to buy tickets from Ollanta to AC on perurail website. I just saw news that full rail service will be restored starting July 1. Would there be any problem if we buy tickets now itself? What happens if there is a schedule change? Thanks!

You should be fine.

The trains are going back to normal schedules.

No problem to buy them now. If you need to change the dates or times (say eg your flight is late into Cusco or you don't feel well) you can for a small fee, I believe you need to do minimum 24 hours ahead of time.

www.saexplorers.org/clubhouses/cusco for current info/updates

no problem with early www.perurail.com booking

www.culturalimmersion.org will have other rail options

also good...

www.insuremytrip.com always wise

lots of delays weather issues and strikes to contend with sometimes

better safe than sorry always pay with CC never wire money.

Have fun,
