The passengers of 34 trains can now ask for financial compensation if there are some delays.
The state-run railway passenger carrier ZSSK is testing the novelty on InterCity trains on the route between Bratislava and Košice, as well as the regional fast trains running between Bratislava and Žilina, the SITA newswire reported.
If these selected trains are delayed by between 60 and 119 minutes, passengers will be able to receive a compensation equalling one half of the sum they paid for the ticket. If a train is delayed for 120 minutes and more, they will get back the entire price of the ticket. The only exception is when the delay is caused by a collision or a death on the track.
