State-owned railway company PT Kereta Api Indonesia (KAI) is offering 10 percent discounts on train fares until Thursday.
Kompas.com reported, however, that the discounted tickets are only available at PT KAI’s booth at the 2018 International Public Service Forum, held at the Jakarta Convention Center (JCC) in South Jakarta.
The discount applies to medium and long-distance commercial train services in the travel period of November 2018 to January 2019. However, discounted fares are not available for the period of Dec. 14 to Jan. 6 and cannot be combined with other special offers.
“PT KAI never stops pampering train lovers with various ticket promotions. This time around, train users can get discounts of up to 10 percent for tickets at the International Public Service Forum,” said KAI operational region (DAOP) 1 executive vice president R. Dadan Rudiansyah.
Dadan expressed hope that the promotion would increase people's interest in traveling by train and show them that trains were a reliable mode of transportation.
“Make sure the booking details match the passenger’s identification card (ID). If they do not match, the booking is considered void,” added Dadan. (jes/mut)
