Travelling by train is often one of the best ways to see Europe. When you travel by car or plane, you tend to miss vast amounts of countryside and parts of a region. Train travel is an often hassle-free and relaxing way to get to a new destination while having a view during the trip.
Benefits of train travel over travelling by plane include not having to deal with long lines at security checkpoints, no baggage limits, and no hidden fees. It is also likely to beat the economy class legroom and arm freedom you find in a plane seat.
Wi-Fi is often readily available, and power sockets too, so you can continue to stay connected and plan the next stage of your journey.
Trains typically offer multiple departure times throughout the day, giving you greater flexibility. Booking a rail pass can also offer the opportunity to choose more than one single journey. A good option to consider when travelling by train is an Interrail Pass (link here), which is a train ticket that allows you to travel on almost all trains in Europe.
If you plan your trip well (take a look at our guide here) then using the train as a transport method can be a great option, giving you a relaxing and memorable experience.
