Train travel is no longer a thing of the past or the domain of young backpackers.
With a European inter-rail pass anyone can explore Europe from the comfort
of a train.
There are so many wonderful places to visit in Europe and the train really is
one of the best ways of getting around. It can deliver right to the
destination of your choice and when you have seen all you want
to see can carry you swiftly and comfortably onto your next destination.
From the fjords of Scandinavia to the beaches of the Costa del Sol. From
the Parthenon in Athens to the Kasbah in Marrakech it is all within
your grasp. Discover the beautiful Dordogne or visit the art galleries
of Florence, ski one day in the Alps and be on the beach at St. Tropez the next.
You can even visit some of the lesser known areas of Europe such as the Rila
Mountains of Bulgaria or visit Bran Castle in Romania, the reputed home
of Count Dracula.
A European rail pass can be valid for up to 29 countries for up to one month so it gives you
incredible flexibility to go where you want to go, when you want to go there.
It includes all the main European countries and North Africa as well.
Modern trains are now swift and comfortable, gone are the days of bone
shaking and hard, uncomfortable seats, you will be travelling in style
without the stress of driving or the delays and interminable queues
that flying so often involves. Plan your own itinerary and travel
to the destinations of your choice for one all inclusive price.
You can also book a couchette so you can travel to your next port of call
whilst asleep and arrive refreshed and ready to go.
