“Foreign cards not accepted by "Urbanomats"”
Review of LPP Buses

Reviewed 6 April 2018

Recently I stopped at a green top-up machine (called an "Urbanomat") and noticed that my Urbana credit was insufficient even for a single ride. I didn't have appropriate coins or bank notes, so I chose to top up my Urbana credit by a payment/credit card. As instructed, I inserted my Revolut card (a popular prepaid MC card issued in the UK) and entered the correct PIN. After approx. 10 seconds I was informed that the transaction had been rejected. I checked the Revolut application for more details and it stated that the reason for rejection was "unsupported merchant". Obviously the "Urbanomats" only accept cards issued by Slovenian banks. Luckily I found a nearby news stand where I was able to top up my Urbana using the same Revolut card, without a single problem.

The moral of the story: if you intend to top up your Urbana during late hours, on Sundays, etc. when most news stands and other points of sale are closed, make sure you have cash, that means enough coins and bank notes in appropriate denominations. Note that Urbanomats don't accept 1c and 2c coins, don't return any change, the total value paid in coins must not exceed 10€, and finally, any unused Urbana credit is not refundable.

This is public transport in city. One ride is 1,20 €, but you need Urbana card with credit to use it. It is not fastest, especially in rush hours.
