Trains in Italy: Reading Your Train Ticket - Eurostar Tickets
Please notice that the images in this section are reproduced from a ticket that was originally printed in red. To make it more readable, I turned the writing to black.
Unlike Intercity tickets, Eurostar tickets are sold only with a reservation. This means that Eurostar ticket is sold as a single ticket. Travel and reservation information are on the same ticket. The look of the ticket is similar to the Intercity reservation ticket, with a few differences that I explain below.
Here is an example of a Eurostar ticket. Click the image to see a larger image.
Reading the Eurostar Ticket
We will look at each part of this ticket to fully understand what the ticket is for.
Departure and Arrival Stations
Top left, in the center square, you can read the number of reserved seats (Posti/Places 04), the train category (prezzo Eurostar), and the departure and arrival stations (Napoli Centrale / Roma Termini).
On the right side, you see the number of travelers that can use the ticket. In this example, 4 adults and no children (Ad. 004 Rag. ***).
Departure Time and Train Number
The center line shows the departure date and time in DD/MM/YYYY format (Partenza/Depart 20/12/2003) and 24 hour clock format (13.30, preceded by the watch icon) and the number of the train on which the seats have been reserved (9444, preceded by the train icon).
The lowest part of the square shows that the reserved seats are in a non smoking car (currently Eurostar trains are non smoking only), the class of the car (2 - second), the number of the car (007) and the numbers of the reserved seats (33, 34, 37, 38).
Finally, in the bottom right corner of the ticket you an find the ticket's price (E ****88,84 - 88.84 euro).
You do not have to validate a Eurostar Ticket
Notice that this kind of ticket does not need to be stamped, since it already has the exact date, hour and train number for which it can be used. This ticket can only be used on this train, on this date and time.
