CANCELLATIONS

In the event of return of an already valid senior transport network ticket “edelweiß ticket”, one quarter of the annual price (i.e. 75 euros) will be charged for each commenced month of use. If the ticket was paid for by a single advance payment, any outstanding balance for the unused share of the ticket will be refunded by reverse transfer. Refunds can only be processed through the Austrian Transport Association (Salzburger Verkehrsverbund GmbH).

CANCELATION – CALCULATION EXAMPLE IN THE EVENT OF A SINGLE PAYMENT

You possess an “edelweiß ticket” for the selling price of 299 euros, for which you have paid cash, valid from 18th February 2018 until 17th February 2019. The ticket is returned in a customer centre of the Salzburg Transport Association on 30th April 2018. The “edelweiß ticket” has thus been used for 3 months (February, March, April). 3x 75 euros deducted from 299 euros equals a balance of 74 euros.

No refund is paid for tickets used for four months or longer.
