💡 Que faire en cas d’oubli ?

Don’t panic. If you forget your card or proof of discount eligibility, you must pay the difference in the fare due, calculated based on the on-board fare.  

This amount will be refunded upon presentation of your discount card at SNCF or SBB ticket offices or shops (minus an administration fee).  

The only requirement is that your details (name, ID document number, etc.) have been marked on the ticket by the guard.
