- " The pass worked beautifully." Yvonne k. 22/12/2015
Had a wonderful trip with this second class ticket. Everyone was friendly and really offered above the necessary requirements. One conductor even rang the station to see whether my next train was on the platform next door. I was very impressed by the service I received. Value for money Convenience
- "Convenience" . 23/10/2014
Few minutes walk from hotels, no lengthy waiting around, walk straight onto train, dropped into middle of towns or cities. Definitely convenient.
- "Training from copenhagen " Julien h. 24/11/2013
The first trip from copenhagen to stockholm was good except we got on the train without reservations. Learnt from then on to make sure we had reservations on the main trips. No problems. Always on time. Very comfortable and always spoke in their language, finishing with English. Will be using the train system again soon. Value for money Convenience
- "Oz Scan" Tom c. 06/10/2013
Given the high costs in Scandinavia generally relative to the Australian dollar, the Scan Rail pass proved to be very good value for money, especially in Norway. The trains were mostly very comfortable. The Scan Rail pass was convenient to use in majority of time. There did seem to be however difficulties in getting train schedule info when crossing from Norway to Sweden eg from Trondheim to Umea. Overall I found the railway staff in Scandiavia very helpful Value for money Convenience
- "Scandinavia Trip" Karen h. 03/11/2012
Great trip overall, flexible, convenient, many destinations possible, free wifi in some trains :) Only negative is that sometimes trying to get a few winks of sleep in a coach seat is next to impossible. Comfort Value for money Convenience
