In 2022, more than 25 million PKP Intercity passengers purchased discount tickets. Travellers can take advantage of Promo offers, Cheap with Relatives, Multipass or statutory discounts.

Tickets from 49 PLN

Tickets for all categories of PKP Intercity trains are divided into five levels of promotion within the public Promo offer: Super Promo, Promo Plus, Promo 45 (tickets cheaper by 45% from the base price), Promo 30 (by 30%) and Promo 15 (by 15%). The availability of individual promotional tickets depends on the popularity of the train in question, as the Promo offer is based on a dynamic price management system. It means that sometimes it is enough to choose a train at a slightly less popular time to buy a much cheaper ticket. It is worth remembering that, under the Promo offer, tickets at promotional prices are available at various stages of sale - after its launch, a dozen or several days before departure, and even on the day of travel. Importantly, promotional ticket pools can change during the ticket sale.

Thanks to different promotional thresholds, it is possible, for example, to buy a ticket for an EIP connection operated by a Pendolino vehicle between Warsaw and Krakow or Warsaw and Gdansk for as little as PLN 49, and for TLK and IC category trains for as little as PLN 19. The Promo Hunters search engine available here will help you find promotional tickets.

Small groups and families travel cheaper

Passengers who plan to travel with at least two people and choose TLK or IC economy trains can take advantage of the offer for small groups - Taniej z Bliskimi. To take advantage of this offer, all you need to do is to travel in a group of 2-6 people - all group members receive a 30% discount on base ticket prices. Importantly, the offer is combined with statutory discounts. Please note that tickets must be purchased no later than one day before departure. Thanks to Taniej z Bliskimi, rail travel with your family or a group of friends is cheaper.

The offer is very popular with travellers. Its first six months of operation, from July to the end of December 2022, have resulted in 1.7 million tickets sold. Thanks to them, more than 4.1 million people enjoyed cheaper travel.

A promotional offer is also available on EIC and EIP express connections. When travelling in a group of 2 to 5 people, including a child under 16, it is worth using a Family Ticket.

On all PKP Intercity trains on domestic journeys, it is possible to use the Large Family Card, which gives a 30% discount when travelling with at least two people holding a Large Family Card (regardless of family affiliation).

Discounts for senior citizens and students
