National Train Service:

Train types in Serbia: Urban/Suburban (BG Voz), Passenger (Putnički), Regional (Regionalni), Express (Brzi), InterCity & InterCity Srbija trains

Validity of Trains Tickets in Serbia: domestic one-way tickets are valid for one day, while return tickets valid either during one day (for journeys <100 km) or one 15 days (journeys >101 km)

Discounts, special offers & ways to save money for passengers traveling by train in Serbia (ZS):

  1. Passengers purchasing return tickets receive 20% discount (both 1st and 2nd class)
  2. Passengers planning to visit more than one destination in Serbia (e.g. day trip with couple destinations) can take advantage of the fact that Serbian Railways allow one stopover for any domestic journey done with one way ticket or two stopovers with any return ticket (one stopover during outward & one during return trip). What does it mean? It means that passenger who has ticket from destination A to destination C can travel from A to C with a stopover in destination B, thus instead of two separate tickets purchase one through ticket, which, due to regressive nature of the Serbian rail tariff, will be cheaper than combination of two separate tickets. For instance, such totally legit 'trick' will work perfectly for somebody planning to visit Novi Sad & Subotica while starting there journey in Belgrade.
  3. Passengers planning multiple journeys around Serbia can also take advantage of ZS domestic Flexi Pass (Srbija Fleksipas), which is valid for 10 travel days within one month validity period on any ZS train (including InterCity, however seat reservation for IC trains needs to be purchased separately for each journey) in 2nd class: passengers 26+ years pay 3500 RSD, passengers <26 - 2000 RSD, passengers >60 years old - 2500 RSD 
  4. Passengers planning multiple journeys within Serbia can also keep in mind possibility to use Balkan Flexi Pass (more about it below in the International section)

a) Regular discounts

Passengers can also take advantage of special Multilateral Agreement between a number of Central European railway companies. It allows to get 30% (or 40% for youth<26 years old and 50% for groups more than 6 passengers) discount from regular SCIC-NRT tariff fare on any return ticket purchased for connections between countries participants of the tariff Agreement (Czech Republic (CD), Hungary (MAV), Romania (CFR), Poland (PKP), Slovakia (ZSSK), Bulgaria (BDZ), Serbia (ZS) and FYR Macedonia (MZ)

Though at the same time potential passengers need to be careful and also consider possible bilateral agreements between Servian Railways (ZS) and rail companies in other countries (those might be cheaper at the end). In case of Serbia it's cheaper to purchase tickets to Bulgaria, FYR Macedonia and Romania with a help of other discounts (SET tariff) and bilateral agreement/special offer with Hungary
