Train travel in Europe: things you need to know
Rail Europe and you
Europe and its temperate climate, national parks and amazing cities is best seen by train and Rail Europe can transport you from one capital to another with ease and without hassle.
We can give you access to over 15,000 destinations riding the rails with all of the big train operators in Europe, such as the Eurostar, Thalys, TGV, the Spanish Renfe, NTV and Trenitalia.
Where can I go?
We can help you reach thousands of destinations in Europe across 24 countries, so your choice is huge. But let’s imagine you want to see England and France.
We can help you to explore London with its amazing shopping, beautiful parks and palaces, with a special London Pass, but also the rest of this green and beautiful Isle. With a BritRail Pass you can travel by train to the seaside or up to the Lake District and beyond.
From London it’s easy to take the Eurostar to Paris. We can help you with Eurostar tickets and the Eurostar timetable and once you are in Paris you can use the Paris Pass to get discounts on restaurants and museums.
From Paris you have the whole of France to explore with the high speed TGV. For this it is best to get a France Rail Pass to travel for three or nine days within a month. You can book your seats exclusively with Rail Europe online. On your tour you can see how Champagne is made, visit the castles of the Loire Valley or head to Marseille, Nice and Cannes for some glamour and sun.
There are many other destinations waiting for you in Europe and can help you plan and book the best journey for you, your friends and family.
Tickets and Passes
If you are taking the train just once or twice, perhaps on the TGV from Paris to Marseille or London to York and back, then individual point to point tickets are best, but if you are making more journeys by train, our Rail Passes give flexibility and will save you money.
Our Eurail Passes are perfect for you as they have been designed for people who have permanent residency outside Europe, The Russian Federation and Turkey, so it is well worth checking out the benefits.
If you wanted to explore Italy, for example, try our Eurail Italy Pass which will take you all over the country from Milan to Venice, the Amalfi Coast and to Rome. You can check out the Trenitalia schedule and book the perfect trip.
Our Eurail Global Pass is the most flexible and offers unlimited train travel in 24 countries. The Eurail Select Pass gives unlimited travel through three, four or five bordering countries, for example, visiting France, Switzerland and Italy and with the Eurail Select Pass you can use the different national trains without any problem.
This year over 1.7 million travellers will make an amazing journey with Rail Europe and we can make it happen for you. Your journey begins here. Enjoy!
