As we all know, there are concessions for students to buy tickets in winter and summer vacation. Every summer vacation (June 1 to September 30) and winter vacation (December 1 to March 31) can enjoy half price of ordinary speed trains and 75% discount for EMUs.

However, during the epidemic period, the extended holiday time is likely to exceed the original discount date. Many students doubt whether they can enjoy the discount when they buy train tickets during the no longer discount period.

In this regard,China Railway 12306 announced that the relevant regulations on student tickets have changed recently. Students are no longer limited to purchase student tickets from June 1 to September 30 and December 1 to March 31 of the next year, but they can only buy them four times a year.

It is reported that student tickets can enjoy the discount of hard seat tickets, speedup tickets, air-conditioned tickets and second-class seats announced for ordinary speed passenger trains.

The ticket price of ordinary speed passenger train with student ticket shall be calculated as 50% of the corresponding ticket price and additional ticket price. Students with student tickets should charge extra full price hard sleeper tickets when they use the ordinary speed passenger train, and half price air-conditioned tickets when they have air conditioning.Second class seats of EMU trains are calculated at 75% of the announced fare.


1. Does the station filled in the student ticket discount zone include the same city station?

A: from April 8, 2021, the city where the station is located in the preferential zone of student tickets will be sold according to the city at prefecture level or above.

2. What should I do if I take a bus beyond the interval?

A: when there is no express or through train stop at the station recorded in the student discount card, student tickets can be sold at the nearest station (which can exceed the interval specified in the discount card); therefore, when you take a bus beyond the interval recorded in the discount card, you will be charged the fare difference for ordinary passengers who exceed the interval. If the train fails to meet the specified conditions and exceeds the interval recorded in the discount permit, the fare difference shall be charged at the full price of the whole journey.

3. Do you need to seal the discount range of student tickets?

A: No, it needs to be changed.

4. How do freshmen (graduates) get into the station after buying their tickets?

A: because freshmen (graduates) have no student discount card, they can't go through the student qualification examination, so freshmen can enter the station and take the bus through the manual ticket checking channel with the admission notice (graduates with the written certificate issued by the school) and the valid ID card used when buying tickets.

5. What if the train can't judge whether the student ticket has preferential qualification?

A: if the train can't judge whether the students have the preferential qualification (except for freshmen and graduates), it should go through the procedures of collecting the fare difference and issue the electronic passenger transport record (paper passenger transport record can be issued under special circumstances).

After arriving at the station, student passengers can go through the qualification verification and ticket refund procedures at the ticket refund window of any station in the country within 30 days by presenting the original valid ID card (if the train issues a paper passenger record, it should also carry a paper passenger record).

After verifying that the discount tickets purchased by the students meet the relevant regulations, the station shall handle qualification verification for them, and deduct the number of times of discount cards for student train tickets; when handling the refund of student train tickets, there shall be no refund fee, and there shall be no refund fee for train tickets.


1. Is the student ticket a paper ticket or a reimbursement voucher? Such as reimbursement voucher (students do not have salary income) how to understand?

E-tickets are taken out of the reimbursement voucher. It has nothing to do with whether a student has income or not. Just as a student can ask businesses to provide invoices after shopping without income, the relevant provisions of railway reimbursement vouchers and invoices are implemented in accordance with the relevant provisions of the state tax and invoice management measures.

2. Why is the student discount fare consistent with the full fare?

This phenomenon may occur when railway transportation enterprises implement discount on full price tickets. Like the full price ticket, the student ticket will be reduced on the basis of the published ticket price, rather than on the basis of the discount ticket price.
