FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Venice Public Transport Tickets & Cards
What is the PNR code?
The PNR is a unique alphanumeric code which identifies your booking. It is provided in the voucher that you can download immediately after booking and that will also be sent to you via e-mail.
Are there discounts?
The ACTV public transport provides reductions only for children up to age 5 who travel free. From 6 years of age the normal rates of ACTV public transport enter into force.
Can I cancel or change my reservation?
After making the payment you cannot cancel or change your reservation, as set out in our terms and conditions.
What should I do with the PNR received at the time of booking?
The PNR is inserted in one of the ACTV automatic ticket machines listed in the 'Useful Information' and on the voucher, to be converted into the paper ticket to be used for your travel.
Can I use the transport services using just my PNR?
No, to use public transport the PNR code has to be converted into a paper ticket.
Where are the ACTV ticket machines?
The ticket machines are at the main stops of public transport. The full list is indicated on the voucher and on the public transport page by clicking on Useful Info.

The deadline is 12 months. You can convert your PNR in a paper ticket in the time period included between the date you entered in the reservation and 12 months after the date of online purchase of the ticket.
Once the PNR is converted into a paper ticket, when does the validity time of the ticket start? And for those that include transfers to/from Marco Polo Airport in Venice?
The time validity of the travel starts from the time of first validation once on board, including transfers to/from airport. Keep in mind that the ticket must be validated every time you board, not just the first time!
