Tavel card help?

Me and my partner purchased a e day bus/water travel card and it has now expired, are question is we need to make one more journey into Venice but don't really have the budget to pay another 30/40 Euro's. Since we have been here we have made the trip in and out if venice about 20 times and not once has our travel card been checked or looked at on the bus? Is this common practice in Venice? Not one have I seen anyone else validate there ticket, just us?

A single journey into Venice (from exactly where) will not cost €30. There are ticket inspectors on buses and vaporetti, with hefty fines for those without valid tickets.

Residents of Venice will usually have travel passes that do not need to be validated on each trip.

Presume you are on the mainland. Buy a single bus tickets and use on bus then walk when you are in venice, or take the train again mestre to Venice is €1.50 I think or it could be €1.30 .

If you are on the lido then it is €7 each way for a vaporetto ticket . it might make more sense to get a 24 hr pass.

There are inspectors and a fine is much higher than the cost if your ticket.

The train ticket between Mestre (any station) and Venice costs €1,25 one way.

There is a special fare for those staying at Lido, €10 including a round trip with buses in Lido and a round trip to San Zaccaria with waterbus line 14.
