Additional information on payment and ticket purchase

If the user runs out of cash during the payment process (after having already made a partial payment with banknotes and/or coins), he/she can select the payment card option by clicking ‘Back’ and continue with the purchase, whereby only the remaining amount of the required payment will be charged up to the valid fare of the selected ticket.

Each passenger will have their own ticket printed. The ticket(s) is/are accompanied by a receipt of payment. The ticket and the payment receipt are printed simultaneously and together.

If the user needs an original receipt as proof of payment, he/she may send a written request to the following e-mail address: [email protected].

Tickets purchased at ticket machines are non-refundable (except in the case of ticket machine malfunctions).
