General information 

Tickets for regional trains and express trains in Poland are not expensive. Remember to check if you qualify for one of many discounts for for Children, students, the elderly, pensioners, the disabled, large families and others.

The price of a ticket will depend on the type of train, distance and the class. Tickets are available at the ticket windows at railway stations, or on the intercity.pl website. Tickets can also be bought on the train from the conductor, however there is a small charge for this service, and you are advised to inform the conductor that you have no ticket when you board the train. The lack of a valid ticket can lead to the paying of a fine.
