Asked by Zenia from PERU | Oct. 24, 2019 00:14Reply
Hi, we are looking for a train trip from Hangzhou to Changsha during your New Year holiday
Can you please advise us if railway still allow people with no seats onboard? We know it is a very busy time and wondering if we should book first class or business class to avoid this situation. For a group of 8, it is a large difference in money. I hope you can advise us if it is necessary for business or first class seats? Thank you!

I know I can change to other later trains even after departure time, but is there a cost?
If yes, can I pay in US credit card? Thank you.

There is no cost if the ticket price is the same. If the new ticket price is higher, there are two possibilities. First, if you bought the ticket in cash, you can pay difference in cash directly. If you paid by debit card, WeChat or Alipay for the ticket, you can only pay by debit card, WeChat or Alipay. If you cannot pay in any of these ways, the station may cancel the old ticket and ask you to buy new tickets. So there could be a fee 20% occur. The railway station never accept credit card. Hope this information can help you.

If I reach the South Station at 10:42pm, can I still use metro service to reach my hotel? Thank you for your reply.

Answered by Matthew from ITALY | Dec. 28, 2018 19:47

The last metro at the South Station should be at 11:03pm to the city direction. If you can reach there before that, it is possible to use it. However, line 2 cannot reach your hotel directly. The closest stop Furong Square, exit 6D is about 2km away from the hotel. So you still need a taxi.
