Last Minute Train Italia Tickets

hi guys,

Just wondering, are last minute train tickets more expensive than buying tickets in advance on Train Italia?

For an existing purchased tickets, is it possible to make changes? I tried going to TrainItalia Website so I could speak to some agent and for some reason Live Chat was not available. I have already purchased a train ticket from Venice to Vernazza (Cinque Terre) but I would like to modify and add a stop at Pisa

The www.trenitalia.com/tcom-en 0847 train from Venice to Vernazza stops at Pisa.

After visiting Pisa purchase a train ticket at Pisa Central to Vernazza 11.70 euro

Travelling on regional trains, validate your train ticket before boarding in the validation box.

Twenty minute walk from Pisa central to the Tower, or take the bus.

There is luggage storage at Pisa central station

Tickets for local (Regionale) trains are always the same price. Except in Liguria, online tickets are valid for 4 hours after the booked train and tickets bought in Italy are valid for 4 hours after validation.

Tickets for other trains are cheapest if bought 4 months ahead. No discounted tickets are sold on the day of travel, so you will always pay full Base price if you buy just before travel.

Whether you can make changes depends on the kind of ticket you bought. Super Economy tickets are strictly "No change, no refund". Economy tickets can be changed once up until the day of travel, but only at a station in Italy and on payment of the difference between the Economy fare paid and the full Base fare. Base tickets can be change at no cost up to an hour after the booked time.

Incidentally, the trading name is Trenitalia.

As advised, exchange and refund conditions are different for different types of train and for different categories of ticket. There is a clickable 'i' for information by each ticket type on the website which will tell you the conditions for each leg of your journey.
