Rail Travel Tips
When traveling, it’s great to be “chauffeured” by a professional driver. On a train, there is a real opportunity for everyone in your group to really relax and sit back while enjoying watching the countryside passing by and having the chance to think about and discuss things that you have already seen as well as treats yet to come.
One of the main advantages of rail travel is that the major stations are located in the central business districts, rather that on the fringes of the urban area as is often the case with airports.
As a result, some rail services can actually work out to be faster than air travel. One recent report cited a trip under the English Channel. “In just under two hours on Eurostar we reached Old Blighty from Brussels” …..”I was already sipping a cup of Earl Grey in my hotel room in London in the time it would have taken me to check in for my flight and clear security and customs at a busy airport”.
Europe, the US and Canada have extensive rail networks, whilst these are not yet so well developed in many parts of Asia.
Travel by rail in Europe is also a great way to get off the beaten track. The rail network reaches into almost every corner of every country in Europe, often into places that aren’t even accessible by road.
