Do i need to validate international train tickets?

Jump to last reply

I'm taking three international trains in Europe in August. I have been advised on other posts on Fodors that if we were getting domestic trains (such as from Paris to Fontainbleau) we would need to stick our ticket in the Composting machine to get it punched/validated before boarding. I know that we have to carry the credit card that we booked the tickets with, and that's fine. My question is, do you have to validate international train tickets before boarding the train? Or can we just print out the A4 tickets we received via email and show them to the conductor with our credit cards and that will be sufficient.

The details of the trains are below if that helps:

Thalys Train Paris - Amsterdam. The date, time and selected seats for the journey are printed on the ticket.

DB Bahn Amsterdam - Berlin. Again, the date, time and selected seats are printed on the ticket. I think it's an IC/EC train, but finding it difficult to understand the ticket as it is in German.

DB Bahn Berlin - Prague. The date, time and selected seats are printed on the ticket. Looks like its an IC/EC train as well.

Thanks in advance for your help!
