Railways offer discount to students sitting for entrance exams

The Vietnam Railways will be offering a 10 per cent discount on all trains across the country to students sitting for entrance exams in universities, colleges and vocational schools for the coming academic year.

This policy is effective from now until the year end. Any student can now buy two round-trip-tickets at a 10 per cent discount, regardless of route, also for accompanying relative to any examination venue.

Moreover, successful candidates can later buy two one-way tickets when going to fill in admission forms at the select educational institute.

For purchasing train tickets, all candidates must present an identification or student card along with the entrance examination call letter.

A red seal marked ‘Ticket Sold’ will be stamped at the back of the examination call letter upon buying the ticket, so that train conductors can check the validity of the tickets.

If tickets are discovered to be fraud, conductors will request the user to buy a supplementary ticket, as per railway rules.
