Is there a penalty if I exceed my journey time with the T-Casual Zone 4?

Page Content

Q: I will be using the T-Casual card for 4 zone which has a 2 hour travel limit. What can I do if my T-Casual travel time is exceeded? If I validate the T-Casual card at Barcelona airport and on my onward journey exceeds the 2 hour journey time limit on the card what will happen?


Tip Important update: On 01 January 2020 the T10 ticket transport ticket was discontinued and replaced by the T-Casual ticket. Click here to learn more.


A:The T-Casual card is issued for different zones and each card is fixed to a maximum journey time for that card. If you exceed the journey time for that particular card then the journey will count as 2 trips. Each Zone card has a different validity time and you should check this when you purchase your card. Once the validity time is completed you need to re-validate the card again by putting it in a validation machine. These will be present on the buses.

If however you have used up all your trips then you will need to pay for another ticket when you reach your destination.
