Collecting Paper Tickets (E-ticket Holder)
• When to collect: After
a successful booking, you can change your e-ticket to paper ticket any
time before boarding. As usual, you just leave 15- 30 minutes more and
collect it on your departure day, as ticket has been guaranteed under
your personal information, no other person can collect it without your
e-ticket number and passport. However, you are advised to collect
beforehand under following situation: You train departs very early in
the morning; You travel in public holidays including Spring Festival
(Jan 1st to 7th of lunar calendar); May Day Holiday (May 1st to 3rd);
National Day holiday (Oct 1st to 7th) or other local big event.
• Where to collect: It is not limited to your departure train station but all train stations within China.
• How to collect: Line
up at the ticket window, show your e-ticket number and passport to
staff. If you have purchased tickets to a number of destinations, you
can pick up all at one train station to avoid repeated queues. An extra
CNY 5 per ticket will be charged if it is not the departure city. Such
as a booking of Beijing –Shanghai-Beijing, you do not have to pay extra
for ticket from Beijing to Shanghai when you collect at Beijing station,
