European Rail Introduction

  • Thalys Train at Gare du Nord in Paris
  • TVG Train on viaduct
  • Glacier Express, Red train, Switzerland alps to Zermatt
  • Eurostar train at St Pancras station

In Europe, trains are considered a primary form of transportation and it is how most Europeans travel. So they’re modern, dependable and in some cases state-of-the-art. At the heart of European rail is an extensive network of high-speed trains, with travel times that can occasionally rival the airlines. But unlike flying, there’s no hours-long security check, no baggage limitation, no hidden fees, and dare we say no stress. More importantly, there’s none of the stay-in-your-seat, 30,000 feet view of whatever that is down there. Because the wonder of the train is that it instantly surrounds you with the very landscape you came to visit. You’re immediately immersed in European life while traveling amongst friendly locals and fellow adventurers like yourself. Plus, unlike the city outskirts of most airport locations, the train takes you from the center of one fabulous city or town to the center of another.

Whether you’re looking for tickets and schedules for fast trains in Europe (such as Eurostar, TGV, AVE, Le Frecce, Italo…), a more scenic train (like the Glacier Express and Bernina Express), airport trains and more, we can help!
