HCMC – Saigon Railway Transport JSC (SRT) has rolled out a huge rail travel stimulus package with up to 4,600 train tickets discounted by 50%, after its operations had been suspended for months to contain the spread of Covid-19.

An SRT representative said that the promotional tickets will be up for sale from 8 a.m. on June 19 to July 5 on the websites www.dsvn.vn, vetau.com.vn and giare.vetau.vn; at stations and at authorized outlets.

The special deals will apply to passengers who book soft seats or air-conditioned six-bed compartments and buy tickets three days ahead of departure with specific coach and seat numbers.

The pairs of trains under the promotional program include SE3/SE4, SE7/SE8 with a travel distance of 500 kilometers or above; SE21/SE22 with a travel distance of at least 420 kilometers; SQN1/SQN2, SNT1/SNT2 with a minimum distance of 250 kilometers and SPT1/SPT2 with a distance of 150 kilometers or longer.

Passengers who want to return the purchased tickets will have to pay a fee equivalent to 50% of the price of the tickets.

According to the Transport Ministry, the country’s railway sector has suffered total losses worth VND90 billion as of the end of March due to the suspension of 152 passenger and freight trains to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Now that the social-distancing order has been lifted, the railway and tourism authorities have introduced many measures to promote the growth of the sectors.
