Buying ETS Arau to KL Sentral Tickets

(Beli Tiket ETS Arau ke KL Sentral)

ETS tickets in Malaysia usually go on sale 30 - 60 days before the departure date, but times vary depending on when KTM release them for sale.

Advance booking for all ETS Trains from Arau is highly recommended as most people will be travelling from Langkawi island and if you just turn up at Arau Station without a ticket, the train may be full!

Advance tickets are easily booked, either from any KTMB Railway Station ticket counter or you can book online via the KTM official website, or use one of the online ticketing agents.

We recommend you book through an agent as this is the simplest way to book online and you will usually pay the same as the counter price (or sometimes cheaper).
