Don't forget the missing node

  Every year, netizens complain about the phenomenon of "second light" when the train tickets are sold on November.

But in fact, after the ticket is sold, even if you don't get it in the first time, there are still many opportunities to pick up and miss.

  First of all, passengers who have not grabbed tickets can use the "Alternate Ticket Purchase Service" function on the China Railway 12306 website and App. The success rate of using this service to "leak out" is high.

  In addition, attempts to grab tickets at the following time points are also expected to succeed in "leakage":

  30 minutes after the opening of the sale, if any passenger fails to pay in time, the ticket will be returned to the system for sale;

  15 days before driving, it is the peak time for refunds;

  48 hours and 24 hours before driving, the system will release some remaining tickets;

  Generally, from 22:00 to 23:00 is the peak time for refunds;

  Each stop has a certain percentage of the allocated ticket amount. If there are unsold tickets, the remaining tickets will be sold again the day before the drive.

  In addition, the railway department also reminded Internet ticket-buying passengers to log on to the 12306 website of China Railway Customer Service Center to purchase tickets to prevent third-party websites from leaking personal information.

Traveling on holiday?

Learn about these scenic spots in advance!

  The October Golden Week is also the peak tourist season. For many people who have been at home for more than a month, taking the holiday to travel is the first choice.

  In order to boost tourism and stimulate consumption, various localities have also introduced preferential policies for scenic spot fares.

Hubei, Shandong, Shanxi, Yunnan and other provinces have all introduced different measures to attract tourists.

  For example, from August 8th, nearly 400 A-level tourist attractions in Hubei Province will be free of tickets for national tourists. Tourists from areas with low epidemic risk in the country will enter the scenic spot after making an appointment with real name, temperature measurement, and health code scanning.

  According to reports, this event in Hubei will continue until the end of this year, including the "Eleventh" Golden Week.

In addition, Hubei also welcomes tourists from outside the province to enter Hubei by setting up tourism charter flights, tourism special trains, and tourism package tours.

  In Shandong, from August 1 to the end of this year, 81 state-owned scenic spots in Shandong Province, including Mount Tai, Sankong, and the World's First Spring, will drastically reduce ticket prices, some as low as 20%.

  Yunnan, a major tourist province, has also issued a "Notice" before, clarifying that "For tourist attractions above Grade A with government-guided prices, the ticket prices will be discounted by 50% during the year."

Currently, 137 A-level tourist attractions in Yunnan province implement government-guided prices.

Epidemic prevention during holidays cannot be relaxed!

  The long holiday of November also brought large-scale population movements.

  Against the special background that the epidemic has not yet completely ended, during the November holiday this year, the railway and tourism departments did not dare to relax their epidemic prevention work.

  In fact, the railway department already has experience in dealing with the May Day holiday, the Dragon Boat Festival holiday, and summer transportation, and the prevention and control network is constantly improving.

  For example, as early as the May Day holiday, China Railway Shanghai Bureau Group Co., Ltd. took a number of measures to prevent and control the epidemic and provide passenger transportation services.

In Shanghai, Shanghai Hongqiao, Fuyang, Fuyang West and other stations, infrared thermometers are used to detect the body temperature of passengers entering and leaving the station, and temperature measurement channels for entering and leaving the station are added in time according to the passenger flow.

  In the area of ​​scenic spots, reservations and current restrictions have also become the norm.

  For example, in Hubei, all scenic spots should follow the opening requirements of "limited, appointment, and peak shifting", and make appointments every day according to 50% of the approved daily maximum carrying capacity.

  The Shanxi Provincial Department of Culture and Tourism also issued a reminder: According to the national requirements for normalization of epidemic prevention and control, the majority of tourists must "make an appointment first, then travel", and call the scenic spot in time to learn about relevant ticket policies, reservation reservation procedures, epidemic prevention and control requirements, and passenger flow , Surrounding traffic, etc.
