Can I cancel my e-ticket?’’

The cancellation fee depends on the tariff of your ticket. For a standard ticket the cancellation fee is 30%, while to cancel a flexible ticket you'll have to pay a 15% fee.

Cancellation requests are accepted no later than 1 business day before train departure. Past this deadline, train tickets should be canceled directly at the appropriate train station by the traveler names on the ticket and presenting his/her passport.

Note: We recommend that you cancel your tickets with us directly to ensure efficient and timely processing of a refund. If you are not able to contact us directly and return your tickets at the station, we will have to wait for a refund from the rail carrier in order to be able to issue a refund to you. This process may take additional time, up to 4 weeks. Furthermore, you may incur additional cancelation fees from the carrier for canceling at the train station.
