Hi all!

Some of you probably noticed that the validity of NRT tickest was lowered from 1 month to 15 days.

However there are some exceptions to this rule:

In Hungary some tickets based on SCIC-NRT tariff, but with special reductions between 2 countries continue to be valid for 1 month. These are reduced fare tickets to Slovakia, Croatia, probably Romania, Serbia, Ukraine as well, and all the City-Star tickets(to Germany, Austria, Bulgaria) continue to be valid for 1 month.

It would be nice to know if there are any other exceptions from the rule anywhere in Europe! I'm particularly interested in the City-Star to Russia!

Unfortunately this very dumb decision was indeed made by some officials...

Well, yes tickets like "Beograd Spezial" or "Zagreb Spezial" were not effected, probably since it's specific interstate agreements. Btw, Hungary to Ukraine it's East-West (SCIC-EWT), didn't check this one in real life, but I think it wasn't effected either.

It would be nice to know if there are any other exceptions from the rule anywhere in Europe!
Honestly, a bit busy at the time, so didn't have a chance to check all the countries yet. But logical guess would be that in cases where countries/rail companies had previous agreements (like mentioned spezial tickets to/from Hungary) everything should have stayed as before. Would try to do it in a next couple weeks and come back to this topic

I'm particularly interested in the City-Star to Russia
CityStar? From Hungary it was not available even before. Or you meant Slovakia-Russia (ZSSK-RZD) via Ukraine? This one survived, still one month validity, but got a bit more expensive
