Which trips were cancelled due to the emergency state? Do I get compensation as well?
If your ticket was purchased on a trip from/after 15th of March, and you got a notification (SMS, email) about the cancellation, most likely your trip was postponed. If you are not certain, then please find information from our homepage.
My previous trip was Tallinn to Riga, can I use the code for a trip from Riga to St.Petersburg?
Yes! The compensation code works regardless of your previous trip. Search trips between your desired destinations, get the 100% trip compensation and enjoy the journey.
My previous ticket price was 5€, but I know the trip I want to take costs more. Can I still get a 100% refund?
Yes! No matter the price of the ticket you had - if the trip was postponed because of the emergency state, we are giving you a 100% compensation for your next trip. Just use the code sent to you by e-mail, to book your next trip.

My trip was before the 14.03.2020 closedown - do I get my trip compensated?
No, until the emergency state was not declared, the borders were open and our departures took place. The traveller did have no obstacles to take the trip, so there is no compensation to trips prior 14.03.2020.
I had more than one trip cancelled - will there be compensations for every trip postponed?
Yes! You should have received code per each of the trip cancelled. If not so, then please write to our Customer Service.
For how long can I use these codes?
You can use the compensation codes until 20.12.2023. Some travel dates are excluded from the compensation offer (see the dates above under the Terms of using codes).

If I use the codes now to book a new trip but need to change these tickets later on – is that possible?
Yes and no. Tickets that are booked with compensation codes can be changed, but you have to pay price difference between original and amended ticket.
You sent me also 5€ discount code or a code with other monetary value - if the compensation code is giving me a 100% discount, why would I need it?
It is a gift code, as a gratitude for your patience. You can give this code to your family member or friend, or you can use it for your forthcoming trip until the 20th of December 2022. The 100% compensation code gives you 100% price reduction. Gift codes with monetary value are on top of the compensation, as a small "thank you for your patience" gift. These gift codes with monetary value cannot be prolonged further than 20th December 2022 or exchanged to money.
