New China Train Ticket Change and Refund Policies to Be Carried Out
When refunding a ticket, no service fee will be charged if it is handled over 15 days prior to departure. Service fee for refunding during other periods keeps the same as before, which is 5% of the original ticket fare if the refund is made 48 hours to 15 days prior to departure, 10% if 24 - 48 hours prior, and 20% if less than 24 hours prior. Please note that the fee will be 20% if refunding a changed ticket whose departure date is within 2015 China Spring Festival Travel Rush (February 4, 2015 to March 15, 2015).
When changing a ticket over 48 hours ahead of departure, it can be changed to any valid one during the pre-sale period, either earlier or later than the original departure time. When made less than 48 hours ahead, it can be changed to one departing as late as 24:00 on the original departure date. When made after the train leaves, it can be changed to a valid one of the same departure date at the departure railway station.
The new policies will be adopted since the coming December 3rd.
