Thank you for your inquiry.
Due to the real name policy, each passenger can only buy one ticket on each train. Therefore, we are sorry that we cannot buy 4 tickets for you. If you can hold a forth passports, we can buy 4 tickets for you. However, there is still a possibility that the train staff will sale the bed again to other passengers who want to make an upgrade if they find out the bed is empty. This option cannot be 100% guaranteed. Hope for your advanced notice. Thank you.
