Can train ticket be transferred?

In general, train tickets are non-transferable, meaning they are intended for use only by the person whose name is listed on the ticket. Train tickets are typically issued with the passenger’s name, and most railway authorities or ticketing platforms do not allow the transfer of tickets to another person. The name on the ticket is often checked against a valid identification document during the journey.

If you are unable to use a train ticket that is in your name, it is advisable to check the specific terms and conditions of the railway or ticketing platform from which you purchased the ticket. Some authorities may offer options for ticket exchanges, refunds, or rescheduling under certain circumstances or with applicable charges. It is best to contact the railway or ticketing platform directly to inquire about any available options for your specific situation.

It’s important to note that the rules and policies regarding ticket transfers can vary between different railway networks, countries, and ticketing platforms. Always consult the terms and conditions and seek guidance from the relevant authority or platform to understand the options available to you regarding ticket transfers or alternative arrangements.
