- Information on season ticket purchase and domestic travel conditions
Purchase of season tickets
Either a ticket or a season ticket is required to travel.
The half-month, monthly and 30-day tickets offer a great deal for regular trips. The cards are available for everyone and for every trip. Buy a season ticket once a month and avoid queuing every day. With the card, you can travel without restrictions in the given traffic route - including stopovers.
If you have a season ticket you have travel insurance in the operational area of GYSEV.
Validity of season tickets
Season tickets are valid from midnight on the 1st day of the given month to midnight on the 5th day of the following month.
A half-month ticket for the first half-month is available from midnight on the 4th day of the month in question to midnight on the 20th day of the month, and for the second half-month from midnight on the 19th day to midnight on the 5th day of the following month.
The 30-day card is valid until midnight on the day before the same day of the next month following the first day of validity.
The season ticket is valid for 1st or 2nd class. Passengers with a season ticket for 2nd class can occasionally travel in 1st class if they pay the price difference between 1st and 2nd class. This can be purchased either for the entire route of the season ticket or only for part of it.
The season ticket is only valid with an identity card. The number of the identity card (letter and number) must be written on the season ticket before its validation (or before starting the trip).
With a season ticket, getting on/off at intermediate stations is permitted.
The passenger must keep the season ticket until the end of the journey - until leaving the railway station - and present it to the person authorized to check it.
General refund policy
In the case of a reimbursement request, the unused monthly pass and the half-month pass valid for the first half of the month must be submitted for full reimbursement by the 5th day of the month of validity, the half-monthly pass valid for the second half of the month by the 20th day of the month. In this case, the railway company deducts the price of the half-month ticket from the total price of the season ticket and reimburses the remaining amount.
The 30-day card must be submitted for reimbursement by midnight before the first day of validity. If the passenger submits the 30-day season ticket by midnight on the 14th day after the first day of validity, the railway company will deduct the price of the half-month ticket from the total price of the season ticket and refund the remaining amount.
The date of submission of the reimbursement request is the date of the postmark in the case of mail, the date of receipt in the case of handover of the request in person and the date of sending the request in the case of electronic submission.
Further reimbursement conditions: see pp. 19-23 of the Tariffs
