Forgive me if this question has been asked in the past, I did a cursory search but couldn't find anything.
As my fiance and I were on the Metro, on our way to Kastrup for our departing flight home, a conductor came on to check everyone's tickets. We showed her our tickets, and she promptly let us know that our tickets were wrong and informed us that we would be issued a fine. Apparently we needed a 3 zone ticket, but we had incorrectly purchased 2 zone tickets (which we had mistakenly been doing throughout our week long stay). Nothing we or the other passengers around us said or asked helped our case. We were unfortunately getting a fine, and that was that
We are not sure what to do... We obviously don't want to pay the fine, which we feel is undeserved. The fine is for 750DKK (about $130US), and is the same fine someone might get if they had NO ticket on the Metro. We had a ticket. As we suggested, we could have gotten off the train and purchased another ticket to make up for the difference. It's all very frustrating.
Has anyone had any experience with this type of thing in CPH? Did you pay the fine once you left Denmark? Have you since returned and was there any trouble? Have you run into any issues anywhere else because you have an unpaid Metro fine...?
Any advice, and especially personal anecdotal information, would be greatly appreciated!
