Please go through the following China train ticket booking terms and conditions carefully before you book any China train ticket through us. Making a train ticket reservation means you and your partners have read and accepted the terms and conditions listed below.
Mostly, we can book tickets at least 2 hours (train tickets booking system is closed between 23:00 and 07:00) before the train departure and you can collect them at a train station with a pick-up code and your passport.
Some train ticket enquiries requested delivery service will only be accepted at least 4 days prior to the departure date of the train. You have to go to the train station ticket window to buy a ticket by yourself if the departure date is in less than 4 days.
An alternate booking to the train number, seat class or even train via a third destination may be necessary (example, all the train tickets from Beijing to Shanghai are sold out, you can take a train from Beijing to Zhengzhou and Zhengzhou to Shanghai). We then have more chances to book you the tickets for the time you wish to make your journey even when the preferred train tickets are sold out.
China-Train-Ticket can usually book a train ticket for you as short as 2 hours or as long as 60 days before your train departure date but this is not 100% guaranteed especially if the booking time falls in some big holidays.
China-Train-Ticket charges a reasonable necessary service fee from USD8 to 10% (excluding ticket booking service fee CNY5 per ticket) to any ticket purchaser including personal consultation and 24 hours phone support service in English. If you choose to pay via PayPal, an extra transfer fee of 4% is charged by PayPal. If you choose to have the tickets to be delivered to your hotel in China, we charge CNY30/USD5 per delivery.
You will have to pay CNY5 per ticket on the spot by cash to a ticket window agent (not at a train station ticket window at the train station) when you collect your ticket if you choose to collect the ticket by yourself.
Our exchange rate between US Dollar and CN Yuan is USD1.00 = CNY 6.00 and is only valid for 3 working days when you made your ticket order.
The price of a sleeper train ticket is quoted based on a lower berth. Some travelers may receive a middle or upper berth ticket because tickets are issued stochastically by the Chinese ticket office system. As there is little price difference, China-Train-Ticket will not refund the difference no matter which berth will be finally issued.
Your sleepers will not be 100% guaranteed in the same berth or lower berth because tickets are issued stochastically by the Chinese ticket office system (Usually your family will be booked in the same compartment when tickets are enough). You can talk to the other travelers and change to the same berth when you are there on the train.
