Booking flights within China on Ctrip

Hi all,
I am looking to book flights from Guangzhou to Xian, then to Chongqing and then to Shenzhen. I am planning to use Ctrip for the flight bookings.

Appreciate anyone sharing their experience using Ctrip. And also how does Ctrip issue tickets? Thanks.

Easy, hassle free.

There'll be a foreign transaction fee if you use a foreign card.

Tickets issued as E-ticket unless indicated otherwise.

I used CTrip regularly. reliable agent. use singapore credit card. need to add 2 or 3% extra.

But they dont email you any e-ticket. just the flights schedules.

You have to call the individual Airlines (provided they have a SIN office) in Singapore to ask them to forward you the eticket.

I do believe Ctrip will provide you with at least the eticket number...

don't need a printed itinerary and it's hassle free. just buy your tickets and show up with your passport.

+1

I usually do this but to be on the safe side, I will have at least the itinerary on my phone.

Just in case, they (check-in people) can't find your booking in their system...

Many thanks to all for the assistance and the confidence that I got of it. Just completed my flight reservations with Ctrip. Fully agree that the process is straightforward. The email reservation confirmation that I received has a reference "order number" and will be useful if there is a need for any follow-up. Yes, credit card (outside China) payment will incur a 3% service charge

No eticket no. Only the ORDER NO.
the ORDER NO is their in-house booking references no. This is Not the AIRLINES PNR
