Privat sells advance train tickets for holiday travel

Privat will sell railway tickets during the Christmas holidays through its internet bank Privat24, as well as at self-service terminals and bank branches.

Privat began offering pre-sale tickets to the most popular destinations, including Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk, Uzhgorod and the southern area and abroad on Nov. 13. As per the rules of Ukrainian Railways, customers can purchase tickets 45 days before the date of departure.

Christana Karmazin, the head of e-tickets for Privat, said that buying advance tickets could save customers the worry of a New Year's trip.

In the Ukraine, one-third of electronic train tickets are sold through Privat, Karmazin said. Privat purchases the ticket and also counsels clients on such services as booking and car rental.

Privat has sold more than 1.2 million tickets for transportation since the beginning of 2013.
