You can buy high speed train and main line train tickets via TCDD Tasimacilik’s online ticket system:
- TCDD Tasimacilik directly sells tickets. Rail Turkey has no commercial connection, no interest nor responsibility.
- You can reserve, buy, change or refund your tickets via this system.
- You’ll need PNR number to list your reservations/tickets
- Tickets are on sale prior to 30 days from departure.
- When choosing train station, you need to use Turkish characters when needed. Note that “I” and “i” will display different results. Use “i” for Istanbul.
- You cannot buy international train tickets online.
- Gender decleration is important. Wrong declaration may cause trouble.
- SMS sent by system or print of online ticket will be enough. For HSTs, valid ID matching the info on ticket will even be enough.
