The Saigon Railway Station’s online booking system will enable passengers to obtain a seat from home, Nguyen Van Thanh, deputy head of the Station said.
With the system, passengers can book easily at anywhere through the station’s website at www.vetau.com.vn, he said.
Passengers are required to pay for their seats to the Vietnam Bank for Industry and Trade (Vietinbank) through the bank’s ATMs or transaction offices.
After passengers fill in a booking form available on the website and make payments, the website’s automatic ticket selling system will certify the form as “paid” and passengers simply print the certified form and use it as a ticket.
Online booking will entitle passengers to 5% deduction.
The online booking system is currently applicable to trips conducted by SNT1 and SNT2 trains from Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang City and vice versa, he added.
