Frequently asked questions
Children travel always under the responsibility of their parents and VR does not have a specific service for children travelling alone. Train staff do not have the time to look after the child as they have to move between the cars during the trip.
A child can use a valid adult ticket, and an adult multi-ticket, to travel by train. The difference between the child and adult ticket prices will in that case not be refunded to the passenger.
