Rail company accepts tickets on a microchip in your hand

If you are a rail traveller who frequently forgets or loses your train ticket, a Swedish rail company may have a solution for you.

Travellers on SJ Railways are able to have their ticket loaded onto a microchip in their hand.

The train conductor is able to read the chip with a smartphone to confirm the passenger has paid for their journey.

The Travel Show's Ade Adepitan joined a train bound for Stockholm to find out more.

The Travel Show can be seen on BBC World News.
