"admin charge too high" Kam Ying Olivia c.
We bought our ticket on line and got the tickets in the local office. And then we found out the admin fee was quite unacceptable. The tickets itself cost Eruo128 ( ie. around HKD1344) but I have to pay a total of HKD1636. Thus 21% admin charge. Again, I needed to go to their office to collect the tickets. I wonder why they could not issue e tickets or allowed me to collect tickets at the train station. Thirdly, the condition of tickets was not clearly shown when I purchased the tickets. I bought first class flexi ( the condition states exchange and refund is allowed). However, when I collected the tickets, the staff told me that I could only refund 3 days before I left HK, not 3 days before the ticket date. No exchange is allowed ( that means I cannot change to other time slot). Value for money Convenience

"Good journey but can be better" Shruti k.
This was a short distance and the train doesn't allow for reservations on this segment. So it was a bit challenging to get on the train with all our luggage. However, what made it even worse was the fact that the platform for the train was only announced 5 minutes before its arrival and given that the Nice platform doesn't have lift or escalator access it made the boarding a bit stressful.

"An OK Trip" Kevin h.
From Parma to Milano is a relatively short trip but travelling with luggage can be a problem as there are no lifts to help you out getting from platform to platform. - make sure you have done your back exercises before travelling! Otherwise the train was ok - clean and on time. Value for money Convenience

Thanks a lot for my trip with my daughters. It was very convenient not to stay in quees to buy tickets, just printed order was needed. Train was comfortable too-wc room was clean, there was cool inside our cabin, blankets was very warm. There is one thing I would like to Improve-the lowest couchette is absolutely uncomfortable to lay on whereas middle and the highest one is ok. Value for money Convenience
