Rail networks in seven European countries have released their northern hemisphere summer schedules, enabling agents to secure seats on key point-to-point rail journeys.
Schedules are now available for rail services in France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Germany and England, along with Eurostar and the OBB Night Trains, which traverse a number of European countries.
More than half of summer schedules have been released for Italy, with the remainder due for release over the next six weeks.
Rail Plus commercial director Ingrid Kocijan said that booking horizons vary for each European destination, but in the case of France, for example, agents could now book until the end of August.
“That means agents now have the opportunity to complete clients’ European summer travel itineraries by finalising vital rail components. I would, however, encourage all consultants to move quickly to secure seats as rail travel becomes ever more popular across all European destinations,” said Kocijan.
Tickets are distributed via Rail Plus, Rail Tickets and Infinity Rail in Australia. See raileurope.fr/wheretobuy for more details.
