All tickets must be validated prior to use in Europe. To validate a ticket, find the platform for your train. Every platform has a validation machine. Once at the machine, insert the ticket in the slot provided, and the ticket will be validated with a date stamp. Don’t forget to remove the ticket from the machine, or you will have to purchase a new ticket on the train! Should your ticket not be validated, you can be fined up to 200 Euros when traveling throughout Europe.
