The carrier allows one error in the identity document number and one error in the passenger surname.

The availability of child fare tickets depends on the service class and the route of travel.
A compartment in a first-class car should be paid for entirely and, in this case, the child fare does not apply. Therefore, even if the adult travels with a child, he/she will have to order two adult tickets.
If two adults are traveling in the same compartment with a child up to 10 years old (depending on the route of travel), they can order a free ticket for the child in addition to their tickets.
If the passenger's gender, date of birth or place of birth is provided, this is not sufficient grounds to deny boarding.

If you need to purchase tickets for more than 4 passengers, split them into two orders.
