Validating tickets

Rated 4.51/5 based on 913 customer reviews

Oporto urban train tickets and passes have to be validated before you can board your train.If you get on without validating your ticket or pass you can be fined between €120 and €350 - Law 28/2006 of 4 July. If you have been issued a print-at-home E-ticket then you do not have to validate it.Instead you just need to present it on board upon inspection.The drawbacks come in the form of ticket lines, local currencies, languages and potentially higher prices.Purchasing individual train tickets is an ideal option for those wanting limited travel and who already know their exact destination prior to departure.Always remember to validate your ticket before boarding the train.“Tickets cannot be sold on board the trains unless there is nowhere to buy one within 200 metres of where you got on” (General Transport Conditions, chapter III.5.1.).
