Train Ticket Booking Via Call Center Made Easier
BANGKOK, 8 September 2012 (NNT)-The State Railway of Thailand (SRT) has made ticket booking via its call center 1690 easier by allowing callers to pay for the tickets at any of the more than 200 kiosks nationwide.
According to the SRT, ticket reservations via the call center provide a much faster alternative to the face-to-face purchasing method, saving time for those who are reluctant to embark on a long commute to pick up the tickets in Bangkok or its vicinity.
More than 200 advance ticket stations have been set up around the country to facilitate passengers to make payments at a spot convenient to them. However, the SRT said passengers must make reservations 5 days prior to their trip. The 1690 hotline is operated 24 hours a day.
Details on departure dates, types of ticket and destinations must be given upon the phone call. A code will then be provided to passengers and must be presented to the kiosks at the time of payment. Tickets will be available for pickup before 10 pm of the following day. However, the reservation will be automatically canceled if it has not been claimed before the time mentioned.
