If you buy an on-line print-at-home ticket, it will be printed on a piece of 8 1/2 by 11 paper that will not fit in the stamping machines.

You will pay a supplemental fee of at least €5 on top of the base fare but that is better than a fine of €50 (minimum) if the controller finds you without a ticket.

If there’s no ticket inspector, wait in the first carriage and signal to them when they come back.
