The cost of purchasing a rail ticket on a train in Luxembourg will rise by a euro in a bid to encourage passengers to buy tickets in advance.

The increase will come into force from June 1, Luxembourg rail operator CFL announced in a press release on Wednesday.

CFL said it eventually wants to phase out the service of selling tickets to passengers on-board trains “so that staff can improve the train service for travellers”.

The company said that rail passengers can purchase tickets in advance at the normal price from automated machines 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Furthermore, it said that national and international tickets can be purchased in advance from main stations which have ticket offices.

These include Bettembourg, Esch-sur-Alzette, Ettelbruck, Luxembourg, Mersch, Pétange, Rodange, Troisvierges, Wasserbillig and Belval-Université.

Tickets may also be bought in advance over the phone, by calling 2489 352 2489 or online www.cfl.lu.
