Fast, Friendly & Fantastic

I tried buying my train tickets on another app, but the app made me wait until 3 days prior to my trip to make the purchase. Because of my travel schedule, I couldn’t wait that long. I decided to try this app, and I’m so glad. I was able to order them immediately. I could communicate directly with them on WeChat, and they had my tickets issued within 4 hours. Then they delivered them to me by courier 2500km away within 2 days!!! They followed up with me too. This service costs a little more, but is well worth it! I will definitely be using this app again!!! And I appreciate the excellent customer service that was provided!

3 years LOYAL to this APP! Many more to come.

When I first moved to China it was hard, buying food was hard, getting a taxi was hard and altogether transportation was difficult to comprehend. Just like other foreigners I had to rely on a chinese friend or a local to help me book a train ticket all the time and I sometimes felt like a burden. Luckily , I came across this APP on the apple store and it changed everything for me. Now everything is in English and it’s so easy to navigate. The customer service is beyond amazing! Great English speakers. I highly recommend this app to any foreigners or even mainlanders that prefer a more simpler way to book train tickets.

Buggy app, fraud service- paid for tickets that were not booked, no refund!

Bookings are made incorrectly, app is buggy (calendar displays incorrectly, seats available display doesn’t work well, other pieces of information display incorrectly or not at all). When needed, service can’t be reached. Due to all of these issues, I have had business trips derailed and now just buy tickets in advance at a ticket window as the bugs/mistakes/crap service with this app isn’t worth it. Had used in the past, will no longer use. *Update- new experience- I’ve just once again tried to use this app to book a trip after my prior negative experience. When I arrived at the station to pick up my ticket, there was no booking. And I have not yet been refunded the cost of the ticket and the service fee. TOTAL FRAUD!
