How to Buy Train Tickets in Mongolia

Option 1: Buy Ticket through an Agency

The Mongolia domestic tickets can be released 30 days in advance before the train departure date, and Trans Siberia trains can be released 60 days in advance. Booking with an agency can guarantee the availability. Especially for the Trans-Siberia trains to China in eastbound and to Moscow in westbound, the demand has far outstripped supply during the travel high season between early May and November. Thus, an earlier booking is the most basic thing for a travel plan.

Option 2: Buy Tickets at Train Station

Passengers can buy tickets at the train station. This is suitable for those who have plenty of time and flexible trip arrangements. If there is no ticket left on the preferred travel date, then the ticket can be acceptable for ones either the day before or the day after. If passengers prefer a scheduled departure, then definitely choose the option 1 above.
Moreover, foreign credit card is not acceptable at the train station, but only local cash currency.
In Ulaanbaatar train station, the domestic tickets are sold at the first floor of station, and the international tickets are sold on the second floor of the building next to the station.

Option 3: Buy Tickets from the Official Website

The official website is in Mongolian, if passengers want to buy ticket on it, then it’s better to find someone who knows the local language for help. Moreover, the schedules are seldom updated, and the international train schedules are not listed, all international tickets to China or to Russian are pre-booked by agencies before open to public.
