Free rail travel

by hidden europe


Slovakia follows Hungary's example in offering free travel on many rail services for senior citizens.

Many trains in Slovakia have been a little busier these past weeks with the introduction of a new scheme which gives free rail travel to senior citizens. Before hopping on a train, would-be travellers need to confirm their eligibility by showing the necessary documentation at a station ticket office. A passport or ID card will suffice.

This new Slovakian scheme is notable in that it extends the privilege of free travel to anyone aged 62 or older, without limitations on nationality or place of residence.
