COOPERATION WITH    

Some of our packages include Rail to/from Italian Major cities, as well as cross/border destinations, and we use high-speed best connections possible, in your choice of service: (Economy or 1ST Class tickets)

Why book a package with pre-purchased rail tickets?

1. Our agents know your hotel check-in and check-out policies, plus travel time to/from your hotel therefore we can easily match you to the perfect rail time with enough time to get there and avoid long waits and stopovers.

2. Most of our combo rail services also include transfers to/from your rail station to your accommodation. Can't get any easier than that! Your driver will be waiting at the end of your platform (or designated area-depending on stations policy/security measures) and walk you to your private vehicle where s/he will drive you to your accommodation.

3. There are many fares for rail transportation- we make sure you are booking the right one for you which suits your travel plans, as well as budget. Sometimes travelers are unaware that booking less expensive fares means that your tickets are very restricted and do not allow for certain baggage aboard, do not include reserved seating's, and are non changeable which means in case of delay or miss-connections you will have to repurchase the ticket.Our recommendations ensure travelers have all the information they need on hand to make an informed and most important convenient reservation.
