In order to avoid being assessed a fine on board, we strongly recommend that you make a reservation in advance.
Reservations can be made at a train station or through up to 60 days prior to travel if you are sure of your travel itinerary.
If you are not able to start using the pass within 6 months of its printed date, you will need to return this pass and we will reissue a new pass.
Only tickets reservations that have been printed by our fulfillment team and mailed to you or ones that require you to print prior to boarding a train will need to be validated prior to boarding the train.
If you have an E-ticket or Electronic ticket with a "ticketless" confirmation you can simply board the train, without printing or validating. While it is possible to secure reservations on trip, pass holder seats are limited, making it difficult to secure a seat on a specific train without making your reservations prior to departure.
