  In accordance with the State Council's joint prevention and control mechanism and the relevant requirements of local governments for epidemic prevention and control, the railway department has adopted measures to restrict ticket purchases in certain sections. Passengers can learn about the permitted ticket purchase sections through the "Check Tickets" function on the 12306 official website.

Stations in Shijiazhuang and Xingtai have suspended the sale of tickets to stations across the country.

Note 3: Some popular routes are not as tight as in previous years

  According to the practice of previous years, it has entered the peak period of ticket grabbing during the Spring Festival. However, due to the impact of the epidemic, many places have proposed to celebrate the festival on the spot.

In addition, some regions have also made it clear that those returning from low-risk areas during the Spring Festival holiday must hold a negative nucleic acid test certificate.

In this context, the intensity of ticket purchases during the Spring Festival this year has significantly eased compared with previous years.

  On the 12th, the Sino-Singapore Jingwei client inquired about the train tickets on February 10 (the 29th of the twelfth lunar month) and found that there were sufficient tickets for many lines that day.

Among them, among the 9 train trips from Beijing to Chongqing, except for the Z49 ticket, the remaining 8 train trips have surplus tickets; of the 7 train trips from Beijing to Guangzhou, Z35, G67, and G69 also have surplus tickets; Beijing Among the 9 trains to Guiyang, 7 trains including K507, Z149, and G401 all have surplus tickets.

  On February 10, the remaining number of tickets for each train from Beijing to Chongqing.

  Of course, there are some routes that are tighter.

For example, of the 25 trains from Beijing to Changsha, only four trains K635, G503, G505, and Z1 have remaining tickets, and the rest are in the "standby" status; of the 97 trains from Beijing to Jinan, only K285, G331, and G21 , G333, G341, G337, K411 7 trains still have tickets left, and the remaining 91 trains are all sold out.

Note 4: Don’t panic if you don’t have a ticket, you can also "picking up"

  Passengers who have not bought train tickets can use the "Alternative Ticket Service" function on the 12306 website and App. A passenger can reserve 4 tickets on two adjacent dates for alternate ticket purchase.

  In addition, if you try to buy tickets at the following time nodes, you are also expected to succeed in "leakage detection": 30 minutes after the ticket is sold, if any passenger fails to pay in time, the ticket will be returned to the system for sale; 15 days before the drive is the peak refund period; before the drive For 48 hours and 24 hours, the system will release part of the remaining tickets; generally 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 driving .

  I would like to remind everyone that buying tickets on the official website of 12306 is the most secure option. Do not trust third-party ticket-grabbing software to avoid being deceived.

Note 5: The online starting time of different stations is inconsistent

  According to the trend of train ticket booking by Qunar, the first peak of the outbound journey during the Spring Festival travel season in 2021 will occur on February 1, and the number of travelers will be relatively small during the period from February 2 to 4.

Judging from the departure time of the passengers' reservations, Go Where found that 8 to 9 in the morning is the most concentrated time period for all-day trips, followed by 9 to 10 o'clock.

And 3 to 6 in the morning is the lowest period of the day trip volume.

  It is worth noting that this year the railway 12306 website ticket service time has been extended, from 6:00 to 23:30 daily, and advanced to 5:00 to 23:30 daily.

  In addition, the online starting time of train tickets for different railway stations is different.

Take Beijing as an example: sales start at 8 am at Beijing West Railway Station, at 10 am at Beijing Railway Station, at 12 noon at Beijing North Railway Station, at 12:30 at Beijing South Railway Station, and at 4 pm at Qinghe Station.

So everyone remember to book an alarm clock in advance according to the train station you are leaving to avoid missing the ticket purchase time.
