(Valid from 15 May 2013.)
Express train supplement
As of 15 May 2013, express train supplement is obligatory on certain fast and semi-fast trains that are marked in the official timetable.
Price of express train supplement depends on the distance travelled on the train with obligatory supplement. The express train supplement is valid on any train with obligatory express train supplement, within its validity period and between the stations printed on the ticket.
Validity period of the express train supplement is the same as the validity period of a regular ticket for the same distance.
The express train supplement is not bound to a specific train and does not guarantee a reserved seat. Stopover is allowed in accordance with the General Terms & Conditions. Pets and bicycles can be carried without express train supplement.
If there is no ticket counter or vending machine at the departure station, the express train supplement can be bought on board of the train for the whole journey without penalty.
