Frequently Asked Questions
How long are train tickets valid for?
It depends if you have a ticket with a reservation or an open ticket.
Open tickets are valid for one month from the date of issue. The validity dates will be printed on the tickets. You can travel with an open ticket on any date within the validity period (however, remember: separate reservations may be necessary, depending on the route).
Tickets with reservations are only valid for the train for which the reservation was issued, on that specific travel date and time of travel.
Are train tickets exchangeable and refundable?
- Non Flexible fares, which offer the best value but are generally not exchangeable or refundable
- Semi Flexible Fares, which may be exchanged or refunded prior to departure but may involve a change fee and penalty
- Flexible Fares, which can be exchanged prior to departure and are generally fully refundable with no penalty.
