Can I buy train tickets for summer students? How much is the discount for student ID card?

In a twinkling of an eye, summer vacation has begun again. For many students who are studying abroad, they can start to buy summer tickets! After the small and Long Dragon Boat Festival holiday, the railway system has fully entered the summer ticket buying season for students. Summer student tickets have been fully sold, and the time limit for students to buy tickets is from June 1 to September 30. Eligible students can enjoy a half price discount if they buy train tickets with their student cards.

Student ticket preferential policy

You can enjoy half price discount for ordinary hard seat train ticket and 70% discount for ordinary hard sleeper ticket and second-class EMU ticket. First class seats of soft seat (sleeper) and EMU do not enjoy student discounts.

How many student tickets can be purchased

With the student card, you can only buy the student ticket four times a year, and it must conform to the bus section on the student card. If you buy the train ticket in the non bus section on the Internet, you will not be able to go through the ticket collection procedures at the ticket window of the station or at the booking office, and you can only refund and buy again.

How do freshmen book tickets

New students can buy a student ticket with the admission notice and the school's written certificate. It is not allowed to purchase / collect tickets at the ticket machine or the booking office, because the freshmen do not have a student card, so they can't use magnetic stripe to get student tickets.
