Agreement on journey continuation in international rail passenger traffic (AJC).
The Agreement on Continuation of Journey (AJC) is an agreement between 16 European rail operators allowing passengers travelling on international trains to take the next available train without additional charge in the event of a broken connection.
The 16 operators involved are BLS (Switzerland), CD (Czech Republic), CFL (Luxembourg), DB (Germany), DSB (Denmark), MÁV-START(Hungary), NS (Netherlands), ÖBB (Austria), Renfe (Spain), SJ (Sweden), SBB/CFF/FFS (Switzerland), SNCB (Belgium), SNCF (France), SZ (Slovenia), Trenitalia (Italy), ZSSK (Slovakia).
You travel from Brussels to Trier with the following tickets:
- a ticket from Brussels Zone – Luxembourg
- a ticket Luxembourg - Trier
The CFL staff at Luxembourg station will ensure that you have planned enough connection time and will give you a delay certificate and the timetable of the next train to Trier, which you can use without having to buy a new ticket.
You travel from Liège to Paris Est with the following tickets
- a ticket from Liège Zone - Luxembourg
- a ticket from TGV Luxembourg - Paris Est
The CFL staff at Luxembourg station will ensure that you have planned sufficient connection time and will give you a delay certificate and the timetable of the next train to Paris-Est, which you can use without having to buy a new ticket (subject to availability).
When you made your initial reservation, you should have planned sufficient connection time.
The fact that you can take the next train without having to buy a new ticket does not guarantee you a seat.
Each ticket constitutes a separate contract of carriage. In the event of a claim for compensation due to a delay during your journey, only the train that was delayed is considered.
If your journey consists of several parts (several connecting trains, with a change), there are two options:
- A single ticket for the different sections, where the different transport companies involved are jointly liable for the entire journey (e.g. if you travel on a series of trains without a seat reservation). In this case, you will receive compensation for the entire journey in case of cancellation/delay.
- Multiple separate tickets. In that case, each carrier is only responsible for the part of the journey it operates itself. In that case, in case of cancellation/delay, each part of the journey is considered separately, without taking into account the other parts of your journey.
General rule: 1 ticket = 1 contract of carriage
In general, 1 ticket (paper or digital) represents 1 contract of carriage, even if you are using more than one train on your journey. If you have several separate tickets for your route, there are as many transport deals as you have tickets.
