Collect multi trip tickets together
I will go from HK to Guangzhou and then to Chengdu. If I book the tickets online can I collect them all together in HK? Or I need to do it one more time in Guangzhou?

It is possible to collect both tickets in West Kowloon Station. Counter No. 1 to 5 can be used for ticket collection for the second trip. However, there will be extra service fee charged. The HK-GZ ticket can be collected out by using other normal counters.
