Train Ticket Help

I got train e- tickets on line. There is the QR code on the ticket. My question is what to do next. Do I just get on the train and let the conductor scan the e-ticket or do I have to validate them another way?

um -- where (at minimum country would help)? What sort of ticket?

Normally the ticket (or confirmation e-mail) explains whether it is your ticket or if you have to redeem it for an actual ticket at a station.

If your ticket is for a specific date you're all set--the conductor will scan your ticket.

Never hurts to ask a staffer once there - either a conductor before boarding standing on the platform or the ticket window unless you get a definitive answer. Also check www.seat61.com for details about discounted tickets.

Where is this train ticket for? When? A little bit of information would help a whole lot, y'know?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QR_code

You've seen it a zillion times - not unique to train tickets just a coding of info to be scanned quickly - assume this is all one needs to show the conductor.

I think that the ticket would say if something else had to be done.

According to OP's other posts, I guess he will be traveling in Italy. But it probably won't hurt if he confirms that.

If it's Italy, you just show it to the ticket inspector.

But be absolutely certain you are on the right train (number) correct car and seat. All seats on Italian rails are reserved with the exception of the Regionale trains that are open seating.
