Bicycle fares

The price of a bicycle ticket may vary depending on the direction of travel. The ticket price is calculated on the basis of the ticket price for the journey of an adult with a discount approved by the individual transport company.

The exceptions are Croatia and Hungary, for which a flat rate of EUR 5.00 applies. The prices apply to transporting the bike along the entire route, i.e. along the Slovenian and foreign part of the route.

Restrictions when combining bike and train

Construction work on tracks may occasionally involve changed regimes for train travel. In such cases, a replacement bus service is arranged for certain scheduled trains.

As transport of bicycles can also be disrupted, please check all possibilities for combining bike and train before travel.
