On board the train, you have to prove your identity using the ID document you mentioned when you bought your ticket. On the Oporto urban trains, you also have to show a printed or digital copy of your ticket. If you have a discount ticket, you must present a valid document granting you that right (if the discount is because of your age you can show an official identification document or a certified copy of it). Otherwise, and in cases where the ticket has been changed or refunded, you are considered to be travelling without a valid ticket and can be fined (Law 28/06 of 4 July).
Passengers who buy tickets to or from Oporto-Campanhã, Coimbra-B and Lisbon Oriente, can use the respective urban trains free of charge to get to Oporto São Bento, Coimbra Cidade, Lisbon Santa Apolónia, Areeiro, Entrecampos and Sete Rios.

Once the ticket has been issued, in the first 30 minutes after it has been bought and up until 30 minutes before the train leaves from the station where the customer gets on, all the travel conditions can be changed once including altering or correcting the tax number.

Once activated, you can cancel this option at any time, by removing the tick mark on the option or eliminating it when it is active. The activation or cancellation process is done during the purchase process at the payment phase.
3-D Secure – what changes in online purchases
When you buy a ticket from the CP Online Ticket Office, in the CP site or the App, using Visa or Mastercard, you are making a transaction with 3-D Secure.
The 3-D Secure protocol provides the highest level of security for online shopping since it ensures at the moment of the transaction that you are responsible for the payment and the legitimate holder of the card that is being used in the online purchase.
A bank form appears at the purchase phase where you have to introduce the bank card details and the authentication credentials that only the card holder knows.
Most Portuguese banks send their clients SMS codes so they can authenticate the transaction they are making.
If your bank card is not associated with 3-D Secure, you may find your Visa and Mastercard cards are rejected.
If you want to join and know more about what authentication to use in your online shopping, contact your bank.
Check COVID-19 information
If you want to get a refund or alter the name of the ticket holder of tickets bought using the CP App, please check the Terms and Conditions of the Online Ticket Office in the “Buy Tickets” area in cp.pt, since the same rules apply for these operations.
