When can I book my train tickets?

While Russian Railways and other ticket issuers will not allow the booking/issuing of tickets more than a few weeks before the date of departure, Real Russia can take your details at any time in preparation for booking when the ticket issuers allow.

 

As it stands, these are the rules that the following issuers use when issuing tickets:

 

  • Russian Railways issue tickets up to 60 days in advance for both domestic and international travel.
  • Mongolian Railways issue tickets around two weeks in advance for all travel; this can fluctuate depending on demand and public holidays.
  • Chinese Railways issue tickets around 10 - 12 (sometimes up to 30) days in advance of travel; this can fluctuate depending on demand and public holidays.

 

If you would like to start your journey within these dates we will book and, where possible (such as when E-Tickets/E-Registration are selected), issue your tickets immediately.

 

If you would like to start your journey on dates further in advance than these rules allow, Real Russia will save your booking enquiry in our system so that on the first day that booking is available your ticket will be booked and, where possible (such as when E-Tickets/E-Registration are selected), issued immediately. Payment will be required before booking takes place; one of our travel experts will be in touch to confirm these details in advance of taking the booking.

 

Please note: Because the ticket issuers are based in various time zones around the world, the time at which we are able to book/issue your tickets may vary.

 

By taking your details as early as we do, we are able to start the booking process as soon as the tickets go on sale. This gives us an advantage over other agencies who may wait until the tickets are on sale before taking your details. It is very important that we can book your tickets as soon as possible as there is huge demand for them; particularly for First Class tickets or any tickets bought during the summer months.
