Gliding by rivers, mountains and medieval towns, train travel often gives one a better sense of a place than flying. Unfortunately, with the introduction of budget airlines, flying is cheaper than before and cheap flights to Spain are easily available. But if you’re a slow traveler like me who still treasures the unparalleled experience that train travel provides, then be sure to hop on the train when you’re next in Spain.
As a huge fan of train travel, I’m pleased to share with you some good news: our very ownÂ European rail tool. It offers our readers access to a unique partnership with the Italian rail system that includes some sizable discounts on train tickets. You’ll be able to search for and book train tickets anywhere in Europe, too, for travels throughout the continent.
With this European rail tool, you’ll have access to the same discounts advertised on the official Trenitalia website for purchases up to 60 days in advance —Â discounts of up to 30%, depending on how far ahead you’re booking, what type of train you’re taking, and what your route is.
This European rail tool will also let you buy not only tickets ahead of time but also reservations — soÂ you can skip the lines at the train stations and proceed directly to the train. Using our new European rail tool,Â any train trips you book (in Italy) are delivered to you as e-tickets moments after you purchase them. You’ll get an email with a confirmation code, and you’ll either be able to show that code directly to a conductor or use it to print out a paper ticket from an automated machine at the train station before you board the train.
For many trips within Europe, the train can be the best option — whether economically or time-wise – and we hope this new European rail tool will make the process easy and budget-friendly.
