Your travel documents

Travelling with an e-ticket and need proof of purchase for your company’s accounts or for personal tax purposes?

This document allows you to prove that your trip has taken place and that it has not been cancelled. It is therefore issued 24 hours after the return trip :)

It is not to be confused with an invoice. Note that VAT is not deductible for travel services (by rail, air or road).

For this reason, no invoice is issued.


Where can I find my proof of purchase?

Whatever the case, your paper ticket serves as proof of purchase.
