Customer feedback Great Way to Travel in Europe
« My husband and I have travelled on Rail Europe many times over the past 10 years through Italy, France, Spain, Switzerland, Austria and Prague. We have always been pleased with all aspects of this travel. Usually we book our tickets and train passes prior to leaving Australia. This is a good idea as we have details of times, coach and seat numbers available. The trains have nearly always been on time and the trips have been incident free with very clean and comfortable carriages. It is very stress free sitting back watching the beautiful scenery whizzing past. We have recommended this form of travel to all our family and many of our friends and we look forward to our next trip. »

    Travels in Italy |
    "We used a Italy rail pass to travel from Rome to Trano (via the Cinque Terra, Venice and Lake Como!) - we really enjoyed the travel, the frequency of trains and the advice we received from booking office staff. Some advice for new travellers - keep 1 Euro coins for station toilets! Also, be aware you will almost certainly need to board your train from a ground level platform - avoid big heavy luggage! "

    Fix your package communication |
    "Even though we read the content provided with our tickets, we still were fined. We read the ticket information and still were fined, you need to make it clearer with a image of the ticket and the steps that are needed to be completed. The ticket information assumes people are confident with the ticket information. It was hard to find what we needed to put in the calendar when the calendar was not labelled. "

  • Milan to Umbria |
    "The trains were excellent, on time and clean. Unfortunatelly the customer information person in Milan was extremely unhelpful, uncaring, and rude. Resulting in missing our train and taking 5 local trains to make the same trip. So a trip that was to take about 4 hours took over 8. However the the staff member who rebooked us was very helpful and sympathetic. "

    "Used the pass to travel from Rome to Florence, Florence to Pisa (return), Florence to Bologna, Bologna to Venice, Venice to Verona, Verona to Bologna. The only places where the pass saved me any significant costs was Rome to Florence and Florence to Bologna, all other trips were generally the same price or cheaper buy buying directly at the station. Can purchase tickets using the self-serve machines so no need to line up. "

    5 Day Italy Pass  |
    "We recently used a 5 Day Italy Pass, the value of which needs to be seriously considered. The great advantage of a pass is that you can travel wherever you like on the days or for the time you have the pass. Most trips, however, are carefully planned and it is rare you would take a trip you had not planned. Many trips in Italy require a reservation which costs extra. It is almost certainly better value to simply buy the ticket required rather than buy a pass and then purchase a reservation. This has been difficult in the past but with improvements in website access, purchasing tickets online is now quite simple. A further problem with the first class pass that we had is that for those trips that do not require a reservation, there is no first class. In summary, a pass may be useful for long expensive trips but for shorter trips (1-2 hours) that we took, it was not good value. "

    "For overseas travellers, LARGE signs advising to put rail tix into machine before boarding would be helpful. At Paris the ticket office does not open till after 6am so if your trip starts at that time, there are no directions to machines which can print seat allocation. Otherwise, trip was good. "
