The RIT Ticket

In addition to your bicycle tour, we offer discounted R.I.T. (Rail Inclusive Tour) tickets for railway transportation (round trip) from your home station to your travel destination. For domestic routes, the R.I.T. ticket pricing is divided into different tariff zones, depending on the travel distance in kilometers. For international tours, you can find the railway ticket price from and to the border station in the tour description. 

The following table reveils the railway ticket prices for domestic routes according to the tariff zones for a round trip. (The distances refer to domestic railway kilometers, one way):
