Dual pricing for train tickets begins

As of Thursday, July 24, state-owned passenger transport services provider Železničná Spoločnosť Slovensko (ŽSSK) will have dual pricing (in Slovak crowns and euros) on train tickets sold through its electronic system, ZSSK communication department director Miloš Čikovský told the TASR. ŽSSK's prices are quoted in Slovak crowns but the ticket will now include the conversion rate and the price in euros. However, the fare will still have to be paid in Slovak crown. Exempted from the dual pricing display are tickets with a preprinted price and tickets from automatic machines. In both these situations, however, prices in both currencies will be listed on or near the sales-point. The price list for international fares is already set in euros, and won't be dually displayed. However, tickets will indicate the price in both the Slovak crowns and euros. Passengers will pay in Slovak crowns but at selected stations it will also be possible to pay in euros.
