Train travel in Europe: things you need to know
If you want to explore some incredible cultural sights, see some of the most famous landmarks in the world and catch a few rays of European sunshine, then you’ve come to the right place. Rail Europe can take you on a magical train journey around Europe from London’s Big Ben to Paris’ inspiring Eiffel Tower, and onwards to see the Sistine Chapel in Rome or the Northern Lights in Scandinavia.
We have access to 15,000 destinations around Europe and will find you the best deals for 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 15,000 destinations in Europe, and the choice of countries and cities is all yours. Here’s one idea. From London take the Eurostar to Euro Disney in Paris. We can help you with the Eurostar tickets and the Eurostar timetable.
After meeting Mickey Mouse spend a few days in Paris, and then travel to Lille or Brussels or take the Thalys to Amsterdam to see the famous canals, and colourful tulip fields in Holland.
Have a look at our other routes and train passes and you will see, we have train travel in Europe covered and can help you plan and book the best journey for you, your friends and family.
Tickets and Passes
We have worked out that if you are taking the train just once or twice, perhaps on the Spanish Renfe from Barcelona to Madrid and back, then individual point to point tickets are best. But as you will be travelling a long way to get to Europe, you’ll probably be making quite a few journeys by train and we have an array of passes to help you out.
The Eurail Passes are perfect for you because they have been designed for people who have permanent residency outside Europe, The Russian Federation and Turkey.
Let’s focus on the Eurail Select Pass. With this Rail Pass you can have unlimited travel through three, four or five bordering countries, and you can use all the different national train operators without any hassle. This means you could travel from Paris to Geneva on the TGV Lyria and then to Munich where you could catch a Thalys train to Brussels and end up in The Netherlands and the canals of Amsterdam.
The Eurail Select Pass is perfect for trips like this we can help you with the TGV tickets, Thalys tickets, and timetables so all you have to do is look forward to exploring.
We have other Rail Passes too: Our Eurail Global Pass offers unlimited train travel throughout 24 countries, while our single country passes, such as the Eurail Italy Pass, for those who want to see every nook and cranny of Italy, will ensure you feel at home on the Trenitalia system.
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!
