More On European Rail Trips for Seniors

Jun 4th, 2010 | By James E Becker | Category: Senior Travel

Here is some more information for you about European Rail Trips, following my post a couple of weeks ago.  You can’t beat rail for fast, frequent, and comfortable travel within Europe—especially with the recent expansions of high-speed systems. But unless your trip is very simple, or confined to local jaunts, you may have some trouble figuring out all the details.

RailEurope offers tickets and passes, maps, train FAQs, Deals and Group information.  A little bit of planning can mean a lot more traveling. Traveling by train will enhance your entire European experience: no airport hassles or wasted time, and more leisurely gourmet dining as you gaze through panoramic windows while being whisked from city center to city center. It’s no wonder trains are so popular, so make sure you book in advance to get the best prices and most choices.  Eurail, also known as Eurorail, offers European rail Passes for train travel in Europe; proving the best solution to buying Europe train tickets. With a Eurail Pass you can travel on trains throughout Europe with one Pass vs. buying several Europe rail tickets. Just choose the countries you want to visit and the number of travel days you need. Take as many trains as you wish on each day. How cool is that?  Overview of Eurail Passes.

InterRail is the flexible European train ticket for all ages. Discover 30 countries by rail with the classic Global Pass. Or choose one of 27 One Country Passes. InterRail also entitles you to extra benefits like cheap ferries.  Europe’s dense railway network with over 40,000 railway stations offers plenty of opportunities for exploration. Travel from city center to city center in a convenient and fast way. Trains are also a green choice, since traveling by train is relatively eco-friendly!  The InterRail One Country Pass is your best choice if you want to visit one European country by train. You can choose from 27 Rail Passes. The One Country Pass was formerly known as EuroDomino Pass or National Pass.

Eurostar, sometimes called the “chunnel train,” is the high speed rail link between popular travel destinations London, Paris, and Brussels, carrying you from city center to city center in far less time than airlines (especially when you consider getting your luggage and getting to the city center from outlying airports). In fact, Eurostar carries more passengers than all of the airlines combined on both routes out of London.

About.com has a great site providing all kinds of information on train travel in Europe. Europe’s train stations almost always have reasonable hotels close by.  jeb
