To celebrate launching the restored service, TRAINOSE is offering a 30% discount from May 10 to June 10. A single fare from Thessaloniki to Skopje will cost 12.20 euros, or 17.10 euros for a return ticket (19.50 euros after June 10), while Thessaloniki to Belgrade will cost 33.80 euros, or 47.30 euros for a return ticket (54.10 euros after June 10).
Passengers travelling to and from Belgrade will be able to enjoy sleeper services. During the busy summer period, there will also be additional wagons to transport passengers’ cars.
