  • "Mr Thanh Nguyen Chung"    
    It is very goods trip  
  • "Comfortable trip"    
    The seats are very comfortable in 1st class. There is good space between seats. The ride was relaxing.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Great ride"    
    Everything went extremely smoothly. Couldn't have asked for anything more!    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Excellent service"    
    After researching all the various websites available in the USA, to buy tickets for European trains, I settled on Rail Europe. The website is quite easy to use, and the information available is both comprehensive and accurate. Everything worked out perfectly, and the tickets I printed here in the USA, were accepted with no questions, from the conductor. When I use trains again in Europe, I will not hesitate to go straight to Rail Europe.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Great trip"    
    The journey was comfortable, fast and without problems.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Great, easy trip"    
    From the rail-europe perspective everything was great except we happened to get a car with a school trip of loud students which made for a very unpleasant, noisy trip. next time I will look for cars marked "quiet" if they have such a thing.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Fantastic Trip!!!"    
    One of the best trips I have ever had and very good service and reliability!    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Comfortable Ride"    
    Very smooth, convenient, and relaxing.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Comfort"    
    I was traveling with the party of 3, buying a ticket, we got seats all together, seats were comfortable, ride was smooth and fast. Adding on top - amazing scenery.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Great trip"    
    Great trip. Comfortable and clean. However, the wifi did not work at all.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Frankfurt to Düsseldorf."    
    It is more convenience for foreign travelers like us if we don't have to print out the tickets in the train station. Because from my experiences using trains during our trip in Europe, only this trip between Frankfurt to Dussoldorf, we have to print the ticket in the station instead of using reprinted ticket at home.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "superb train it is.....really"    
    i like the train very much    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Frankfurt to Paris by train"    
    Did everything online. Rail Europe website was helpful and easy to use. Paid 45 Euro for this 4-hour trip on 22nd October 2016. A very pleasant and convenient way to travel inter-city. Beats flying any time, the hassle of airport security and the waiting period. Have already booked via Rail Europe for my family travel (5 of us) in December from Zurich, Geneva, Paris to London. Paid quite a lot for this even after the discounts for my 3 daughters (under 26 years)    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Trip"    
    The trip was good . The staff were kind and hospitable. The eurorail is a superb way to connect. However the cost was a little high. But totally worth.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Excellent Trip"    
    My only complaint is that different fairs varied greatly from day to day, and the trip we happened to need was much more expensive than it had been when we first researched our tickets by the time we purchased. I wish it was easier to predict the rates.    Value for money  Convenience
