I purchased 7 one way tickets on 17 May and my E-Billet says its only valid until 15 Aug. Only-Lyon could you verify the one year expiration, please.

I'm sorry I did not read the OP question carefully enough!

The most frequently asked question is about the return ticket validity and yes it has a one year validity :

"The Return ticket must be used within one year from the date of delivery and until

the second validation by the steward during the return trip."

I downloaded the "Operating Rules" on Rhonexpress website and yes there is something about tickets validity

"During an acquisition on the Internet through the general public module, the buyer have 3

months to present his E-ticket on board which will be change by a definitive ticket with an

expiration date equal to the previous one. This deadline is put back to 8 months for the

buyers who have acquired a Rhônexpress E-ticket by a provider under contract with

Rhônexpress society (travel agencies, tourist centres, associations, companies ...) with access

to the selling module for professionals only on the Internet."

They should really note that on their website. Unless you read what an e-ticket is you do not know it is only valid for 90 days.

You're right. But this is basically a tram ticket, with no places limitation and no price variation, I wonder how many people would buy it so long in advance.

Was able to get refund on tickets, took two weeks and it's a Euro wire into your bank. Luckily was able to wire to my friend's bank in France.
