Rail tickets can be issued either via paper tickets or as 'E-Tickets'.

Rail tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable. Tickets that are lost or stolen will have to be repurchased. Under no circumstances should you mark or cut paper rail tickets. Any alterations made to the paper tickets may result in the tickets being not valid.

'E-ticket': There are a few types of 'E-Tickets' and depending on the type of train that is booked you may receive one or all of the following:
  • Print At Station E-ticket: These tickets will have instructions on how to print your tickets locally. Normally they will have a PNR number that you will enter at the kiosk to retrieve your ticket.
  • Print At Home E-ticket: These tickets will be in PDF form and will be emailed or shipped depending on your shipping method. These ticket(s) must be taken presented to board the train.
  • .Italo Eticket: "Italo" (NTV Nuovo Trasporto Viaggiatori) trains will only be issued our company voucher and will be all you need to board the train, simply board your train and take your seat. The conductor will come by sometime during your journey and check your PNR and ID.
Notes: The date listed on the tickets is in the DD/MM/YY, for example: 20/10/18, format and the time is based on the 24-hour clock. If your tickets include a seat reservation, note that "Coach" refers to your car number, not the class of service you are booked in. Your tickets will also show your seat numbers.

IMPORTANT: Each city has multiple train station locations and it is vital that you board and exit the station noted on your ticket or voucher.

Rail Passes: Rail passes do not guarantee that you will have a seat on a train. Many local trains do not require an advance seat reservation and you can board the train without one. On many of the high-speed trains, international trains and night trains, it is mandatory to reserve a seat in advance. There is an extra fee for reserving a seat. In order to determine if you require an advance seat reservation, check the Eurail timetable for the exact type of train available for your routing or call one of our experienced agents.
Many Americans, familiar with the huge difference between first and coach class seating on airplanes, are surprised to see how small the difference is on European trains.

Second class is plenty comfortable.

First class is often less crowded, has wider seats and aisles, and is more likely to have amenities such as air-conditioning and power outlets. Many first-class travelers are business people looking to get work done.

The main difference between first and second class is the spacing. Second class usually has 2 seats/aisle/2 seats, and first class will be 2 seats/aisle/1 seat giving the first class seating more room.
We do ticket rail based on booking windows, which can vary between 6 months and 3 weeks prior to your departure date. Once your rail ticket is issued, times will be confirmed and updated in your reservation.
