Hello! We are trying to register to buy tickets online for trains next week. However, we are encountering the same activation email issue. I have tried 3 gmail accounts, an outlook account, and even a yahoo account with no success. Were there any special tricks or methods to obtain the email in your spam?

Thanks everyone!

Update. I received the activation email after creating a brand new gmail account. Weird. Maybe the system recognizes that I am in Kyrgyzstan when I created the account/

Does anyone know how far in advance tickets go on sale via the official website? I'm interested in purchasing 1 ticket for train 761 ( https://eticket.uzrailway.uz/timetable/ ... =761%D0%A4 ) to travel from Bukhara to Samarkand in July. However, the website won't show me dates beyond March 18, 2019 (roughly 6 weeks out).

If its only 6 weeks (or whatever duration that is less than ~5 months), that's fine, I just want to confirm that I'm not missing some obvious way to purchase today.

thanks!

The old usual Soviet timeframe in which you can buy tickets in advance is 45 days, which would be roughly 6 weeks. For some trains, it might be 60 or even 90 days nowadays (although I do not know whether this applies anywhere in Uzbekistan). You will certainly not be able to buy tickets for July yet.

Has anyone in New Zealand succesfully got tickets online? I'm really wary of leaving it until i get there since we plan a night train trip a day after arriving. But the idea of paying triple through an in-between doesn't sit well.

Our train trips are (i hope the times are correct)
3 May Night train Tashkent to Khiva
5/5 Khiva to Bukhara 1618 to 2233
7/5 Bukahara to Samarkand 1550 to 1720
9/5 Samarkand to Tashkent 1850 to 2058

You cannot buy tickets for May yet.
