EUROPEAN RAIL ON
Find out why travelling around Europe via train is quickly becoming one of the most popular options among business travellers and why it can have a positive impact on the environment, traveller wellbeing and your travel spend.
With over 2,500 train stations spread across the UK and tens of thousands across the rest of Europe, travel by rail gives you something that air travel can’t always achieve, the ability to visit anywhere – anytime. With the support of our teams’ expert knowledge, we can help you meticulously plan trips across Europe that suit you.
We believe that every station represents your opportunity for a new business relationship. Using our simple online booking tool to purchase tickets, the onboard comfort, the ability to rest or work and the speed; you’re just one train trip away from meeting your business goals.
While travelling for business is an important part of building relationships, it’s important that business travellers make good, sustainable choices. Choosing rail travel over air or car can help cut your carbon emissions.
Travelling by train is often a much more cost-effective way to carry out business trips. Buying short-haul flight tickets or renting a car can soon become expensive, especially when there are multiple legs to your journey.
Booking train tickets provides more flexibility for business travellers. There are often plenty of train times available and some operators allow passengers to change their ticket booking with no fees.

MORE REASONS TO USE
Make the most of your travel time with free WiFi, usually available and stable throughout your train journeys.
With some tickets including a meal delivered directly to your seat, there are usually plenty of food options available when travelling by train.
EASE OF USE
Luggage is easily carried onboard trains, whether it’s a small briefcase for a day trip or a larger suitcase for a multi-day business journey.
Seats on trains are generally wider, have more leg room and are better suited for both resting or working.
With lots of power points available at each seat onboard most trains, you won’t have to worry about running out of battery.
Trains are faster than cars, especially when going short distances and into city centres. Trains can also sometimes be quicker across some countires than flying.
Train ticket prices tend not to fluctuate as much as it does when booking certain ticket types on a plane.
Most train lines connect directly to major airports, for those who need to combine rail travel with a flight or combining two or more business trips.
A train ride provides a better overnight experience, making for a more comfortable journey than a 3am airport wake up call to catch that flight.
When travelling as a group by air, the complications around airport security and the position of airplane seats makes it difficult to have any prolonged and meaningful conversations with your travel companions. Which is why, when two or more colleagues are travelling together for business, rail makes it a lot easier for groups to coordinate logistics, all the while having the ability to work, socialise and communicate while in transit.
Duty of care is a particularly important issue right now, especially when it comes to health and safety. That’s why many are choosing group rail over air travel as it provides more options to seat large groups together. We believe, as business travel returns over the coming months, that your staff will be more comfortable travelling knowing they’re sitting next to their colleagues.
