What Should We Know First Before Ordering Train Tickets?

Ordering Instructions

There are many terms about buying tickets, and there is no English. Therefore, I focus on translating a few points that I think are more important.

  • In 3 months, there were 3 bookings that were overdue, you will be forbidden to order tickets in 6 months.
  • Open booking period:
  1. You can book train tickets in two weeks before the ride.
  2. Tickets for more than one hour before departure can be booked on the day of the ride.
  3. During the national holiday or continuous holiday, the Taiwan Railway Administration will announce the adjustment for the opening of the booking period.
  • The 684, 685, 781, 782 and 5448, 5446, 5455, 5455 trains are preferential trains. One-way tickets are exclusive to coupons. Tickets are not sold for round-trip. Please book by one-way ticket.
  • Ordering train tickets in super-mart for each identity card number is limited to 6 per person a day. After the ticket and payment slipis are successfully printed, the ticket is paid in cash within 10 minutes to the counter.

Returning Instructions

  • Refund fee:
  1. On the day of the ride: charge 20% of the fare per ticket, and not less than NTD20.
  2. Before 2 to 3 days from the day of the ride (the first day is the day of the ride): charge 10% of the fare per ticket, and not less than NTD20.
