Going to Europe this year?

The train remains the best way to travel Europe, for both convenience and price. Rail Europe has a new 48 page, “Europe on Track” 2000 brochure that covers rail products for travel throughout Europe and the U.K., including rail passes, Rail ‘n Drive passes, Premier Trains and the complete line of BritRail products.

Rail Europe has a number of new products for this season that will help Canadians navigate what can be a difficult continent. The brochure, which features rail maps, photos of train interiors, exteriors and stations, and commonly asked questions and answers about rail travel, also highlights several new “Saverpass” products that offer discounts for parties of two or more traveling together.

This year, Saverpasses have been introduced for France and Switzerland. Another new product is “Tops of Switzerland”, a 5-day package combining rail travel with 3-star hotel accommodations in Interlaken and Lucerne, starting at $608 (Cdn) per person (double occupancy).

Rail passes are available for single countries, regions (Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, Benelux countries, Balkans) or all of Europe (the five-country Europass or 17-country Eurailpass). In addition to savpass discounts for two or more, many passes have other discounts for seniors (60 and over) or for families (in Switzerland and the U.K.).
