Payment for tickets purchased in the mobile app is cashless. The passenger can pay for them in the following ways:

  • from credit

Boarding is possible only with a valid ticket.

The start of validity of a single ticket is:
  • automatically after the purchase of the ticket, or
  • at the selected time, via a slider in the shopping cart, up to 90 minutes within the current day, when purchasing a ticket directly from the ticket menu, or
  • at the scheduled departure time of the searched connection, when purchasing a ticket via the connection finder, up to 180 minutes within the current day.

The passenger can see in the mobile application how much time is left until the ticket starts to be valid and then the time left until the ticket expires.

If necessary, a ticket with a delayed validity can be cancelled up to 5 minutes before it is activated. The cancelled amount is automatically added to the user's credit, which can then be used to purchase further tickets.

The IDS BK mobile application is also suitable for foreign tourists. It is also available in English and German versions.

V aplikácii je možné kúpiť aj niekoľko lístkov napríklad pre rodinu, či skupinu spolucestujúcich.
