Interactive Rail Map
- A. Yes, depending on the country you are traveling in. Generally there are local trains that travel the same route as high-speed trains, however they generally take much longer to travel the same route. You will need to weigh the cost of a reservation compared with the time it will take to travel the same route. Example: Lyon to Marseille is generally about 1 hour 45 minutes on the TGV. A local train for this same route would be about 3 and half hours.
- A. Generally, dogs are permitted on trains. Sometimes they may need to be contained in a pet carrier, or they may have to wear a muzzle or leash. Dogs normally travel at half the fare of a 2nd class ticket; this charge is payable directly to the conductor. Pets are not allowed on trains in Great Britain, Spain, Ireland, Norway, and Finland. Currently the only animals that will be permitted to travel on the Eurostar are guide dogs for the visually impaired.
- A. Most major train stations have lockers or luggage storage available at an additional cost. Make sure you have some change available if you are planning to use a locker. We have information about luggage storage on our train station information pages.
- A. Gatwick and Heathrow Express trains run every 15 minutes.
- A. Book 1 passenger at a time, and select the Single compartment. You will need to do this step twice, once for each passenger.
- A. The following items of luggage are accepted at no extra cost on TGV trains and must be stored in the racks provided: hand luggage (suitcases, travel bags, rucksacks); skis in a bag; children’s prams; dismantled bikes in a bag; portable wakeboards in a bag. Also remember that on all French trains, including TGV, it is mandatory to place a tag on each piece of luggage identifying the traveller.
- A. A saver pass is a discount rate for a group of 2-5 passengers traveling together at all times. All names will be printed on a single pass, therefore passengers will not be able to travel independently.
- A. Not presently but as soon as European railways introduce e-tickets, we will be able to offer them.
- A. Timetables for European Train schedules can be difficult to read and determine what the trains are running. For fast and easy schedule results view our train times on our Train Tickets and Schedules page to view each route.

- "Excellent trip" Maria h. 30/09/2016
Our rail trip was excellent, comfortable, convenient and we will be happy to do it again! Value for money Convenience
- "Think twice" Tania n. 11/07/2016
What can we say when the coach stewardess does not speak either English or Italian (and the train traverses Italy), the coach does not have any drinking water dispenser, and there was no packaged drinking water on board available for sale! The aircon did not work until 30 min.s into the journey, and it was circa 35 degrees C. The lighting did not work properly - one dim ceiling light only, and no reading lamps. And the coach stewardess was in the adjoining cabin and smoked in the cabin - against the carriers own regulations - so that her 2nd hand smoke drifted straight out her window and into ours, and permeated the A/C once it began working. Value for money Convenience
- "First time travel" Robert c. 03/07/2016
The only problem with this service is that there is NO baggage storage area for large suitcases on this train. The overhead racks can only take small suitcases and back packs meaning you have to keep the suitcases on the floor of the compartment. In a 6 berth cabin once there are 2-3 suitcases there is no room left at all. We were lucky that the train was not full. If full it would have been mpossible with luggage. Value for money Convenience
- "Bus change" Glynn r. 18/06/2016
Sadly the bus was used and not the train on this part of our trip but it was waiting for us at Villach so there were no hassles even though there was only 10 minutes between arrival of the train and departure of the bus. Obviously this part of the journey was much slower with traffic hassles and so on. Value for money Convenience
- "Best way to travel" David h. 06/06/2016
Train travel was a brilliant way for my husband and I to get to Italy from Vienna. Payed extra to upgrade to first class which was worthwhile. The trip was relaxing, avoided the chaos of airports and allowed us to enjoy the scenic countryside. Would highly recommend. Value for money Convenience
- "This is first class " Deborah m. 26/05/2016
We were warned that the first class was very mediocre . As our train was arriving around 2.30 am I did set my alarm just in case we doozed off . Thank fully I did as no surprise that no one came and pre warned us that we were reaching our destination and no loud speaker over the intercom that we had reached the statistics n . So hint !! Make sure you are ready to alight with luggage intact quickly Using rail Europe is easy but not the cheapest site for train fares Value for money Convenience
- "Friendly service" Ian s. 05/07/2015
Good train service with a touch of the old world about it. Very helpful service from the Guard. Don't get caught in Zurich unless you have a deep wallet and want to change currency. Value for money Convenience
- "Day travel, wonderful views" John c. 01/04/2015
We chose to travel during the day for the views. This was a good decision as it covered the distance in quick time and also enabled us to enjoy the scenery. Value for money Convenience

- "Efficient and Pleasant" George v. 23/09/2014
The entire experience was pleasant. The staff we well organised and efficient. We needed to connect to another train at Villach HBF within a small time window and our train was exactly on time, which enabled us to get our connecting train. Value for money Convenience
- "Lack of Service" Heather b. 20/08/2014
We were extremely disappointed in the service offered on this train. No food was offered in any capacity, with an early morning trip leaving the hotel a 6.15 we and booking first class we thought (incorrectly ) that there would be a buffet carriage available. We travelled the same route some years ago and this was the case. The carriage was comfortable, but with little foom for large luggage it was impossible to cater for the 5 persons in the carriage to store and walk in in or out of the carriage. I am really sorry that I booked this without researching this further Value for money Convenience
- "Excellent journey" Ronald p. 18/07/2014
Highly recommend this train service. Great journey Value for money Convenience
- "Overnight to Vienna" Andrew d. 17/07/2014
Punctual, comfortable and clean. Service was adequate, if not friendly. Value for money Convenience
- "Raileurope...by bus" James m. 25/06/2014
I booked a Raileurope trip with a number of trains around Europe. Maybe it was me, but didnt pick up this was a bus sector from Venice...Oh, and it wasnt even from Venice main station, but from Mestre, which was another 10min away. Luckily I arrived with plenty of time, and after arriving at the wrong bus stop, finally found the correct area for the bus. First class was on the lower floor, which i assume had more comfortable seats, but the view was not as good, and the scenery was fantastic. There was tea and coffee available, but there was no attendant to assist or advise of the refreshments that were available. Convenience
