As with all ETS Train services in Malaysia, you will need to make a reservation for your seats.
You can do this either at any KTM railway station, or much more easily, you can book your tickets online (either direct from the KTM website, or via an online ticketing agent).
Tickets cost the same booking online as they do from the station ticket counter.
Advance purchases for train tickets can be made up to a couple of months in advance, but booking times vary depending on when KTM release tickets for sale.
