Trenitalia Super Economy tickets

What are Trenitalia Super Economy tickets? 

Trenitalia Super Economy Tickets are the cheapest tickets that can be purchased to travel on all long-distance trains in Italy (so all trains beside the regional ones). They are available to buy six months in advance until midnight two days before the train departs (Italian time). This means that if your train leaves on a Saturday, you'll be able to purchase tickets at the Super Economy fare (if still available) up to midnight on Thursday. 

Trenitalia Super Economy tickets are available for travelling on national Trenitalia trains including high-speed and Intercity services. A minimum price of €7.90 is applied and usually for a limited number of seats only (normally less than 30% of seats but this is not confirmed by Trenitalia). 

Super Economy tickets can't be combined with other reductions except for the ones for children, you can find out more here – Trenitalia ticket information

Who are Super Economy tickets for?

Trenitalia Super Economy tickets are often preferred by locals and budget tourists as they don't allow refunds and exchanges. On the other hand, they tend to be very cheap – if you buy well in advance you could take a high-speed Frecciarossa train from Rome to Florence (1h 30m) for less than €20 or from Rome to Venice (3h 45m) for less than €30.

We definitely recommend buying this type of ticket if you're certain that you'll be able to take a train at a particular time.

Where can I use Trenitalia Super Economy tickets?

You can use Trenitalia Super Economy tickets to travel on long-distance trains including the high-speed services Frecciarossa, Frecciargento and Frecciabianca and InterCity day and night trains.

If you plan on taking a regional train instead, you'll need to get a regional ticket with a fare type called "ordinaria".

How do I buy Trenitalia Super Economy tickets on Trainline?

To purchase a Trenitalia Super Economy ticket simply start a search using our Journey Planner and select the "Cheapest" filter (it should be selected by default). If the Super Economy fare is available for your journey, you'll see it written in the train details tab.

You can buy Trenitalia Super Economy tickets with us in several currencies – €, £, $, A$ or C$. Trainline is linked to Trenitalia's ticketing system so you'll book the exact same trains as you would on the Trenitalia website. 

If you're booking a popular route less then two weeks before departure, it's likely that the Super Economy fare won't be available. The next cheaper fare would be the "Economy" fare – if this one isn't available either then you'll need to buy a "Base" standard ticket at full price. 

Are Trenitalia Super Economy tickets paperless?

Yes, as with all Trenitalia tickets, you can use Trenitalia Super Economy tickets on your smartphone simply by downloading a PDF you'll receive by email or by telling the ticket inspector your unique ticket number (displayed in the confirmation email and on the PDF). If you're taking several trains in Italy, why not download our app - you'll have all your tickets in one handy place. 

Good to know – if you're taking a train at the main stations in Milan, Rome, Naples and Florence you'll have to show your paperless ticket before boarding the train. In all other cases, you can board the train and then show the paperless ticket when asked to by the ticket inspector.

How do I change or refund Trenitalia Super Economy tickets?

Super Economy tickets are non-refundable and not changeable without any exceptions. If you're looking for a refundable or exchangeable ticket, check out Trenitalia Base tickets or Economy tickets
