I have recently returned from a week long trip to Hamburg, Germany, whilst we were there we didn't use the trains at all, just travelled around mostly on foot and in taxis, on the final day on the way to the Airport, we decided to take the train as we assumed it would be the cheaper option than another taxi, we bought our tickets and got on the train, couple of stops down the line, the ticket inspectors showed up and checked our tickets, unbeknown to us we had all purchased the wrong ticket, tried to explain this to the ticket inspector, but his English was minimal as is my German, so he took my details, name, DOB, address (no post code which i thought was weird).
He told us we had to go to an address on the ticket to pay the fine, but as we were on our way to the airport to fly home, this wasn't an option, i've had a look through the ticket and the leaflet-type thing he gave me, but it's all in German (understandably) and i can't seem to find any way of making this payment online.
I was given 40 day to pay 40 euros, but i'm struggling to do this and i don't want any 'black marks' placed against me due to the logistical problems of paying the fine, i don't agree with the fine because it was an honest mistake, but i understand i have to pay it.
Does anyone know how i can get this paid, without flying back to Hamburg?!
