The New and Improved

Serving North American travelers for more than 75 years, Rail Europe has launched a new online travel booking site, allowing American customers to begin their European travel experience online before they even pack their bags.

Rail Europe’s President and CEO Frederic Langlois, says, “The new site architecture was designed to answer the needs of all types of travelers, from ultra-organized planners, to travel romantics and the completely uninformed. Armed with the insight that our customers actually enjoy the experience of planning their own trips, the new aims to make booking more of a pleasure than a pain.”

Upgraded Functionality’s sophisticated new booking functions allow for planning either single-destination or multi-stop travel itineraries throughout Europe, in all classes of rail service. Also, the technology generates tips and recommendations on how to save money, or when a rail pass might offer superior value to the traveler.

In partnership with travel guide publisher Frommer’s, the new website contains extensive information on travel destinations throughout the European continent, including suggestions on what to do and what to see in all the countries within Rail Europe’s network. In addition to travel guides, offers a number of exclusive deals and packages, including special itineraries, wine pairings and tours.
