How to receive tickets

Most tickets are issued within 1 hour from booking. Some tickets are issued within 24 hours from booking. And tickets booked in advance are issued when the rail carrier allows assigning specific seats to your name. We display the date when your tickets will be issued on your order page and in the app.

When will I receive my tickets

If you are booking a few weeks before your trip (or few months before for select suppliers), your tickets will be issued instantly. If you are booking in advance, we recommend that you install the Rail Ninja app. As soon as we issue your tickets, they will be loaded in the Rail Ninja app and you will receive an automatic push notification about it (and an email)
