No one in Italy would sell us a ticket. Then when we went to Rail Europe on line, no one in Italy would print out our tickets. I thought the EU meant that countries spoke to each other. There wasn't a waiting salon in the Milan train station and very few seats. In Genoa, we had a first and a second class waiting room. The conductor told us we would be 10-15 min late arriving in Chambery...that meant we'd miss our connection. She was mistaken. We were on time. Thanks to the kindness of a stranger we were assisted in printing out our ticket to travel to Gieres and we made our train. The trip would have been more enjoyable without the ticket hassle.

The train departed on time always. It is comfortable. I will consider traveling with Euro rail trains again. However, the tickets are expensive, the admin cost is ridiculously high (16Euros) and they oblige you to get a hard copy ticket that cost you an additional 12Euros. As an environmentalist, I would have preferred not to have a print ticket but this option was not available.

Because of the traindelay, I almost missed the plane
- "Ticket collection" Ehud m. 28/06/2013
Ticket collection via automatic kiosk did not work for me and I had to Stand in line 20 minutes to collect tickets. The trip itself was fine. Make sure to allocate sufficient time

The train was on time. A pity there is no wi-fi nor electricity plug for the computers.
- "Hello" Svetlana b. 10/03/2013

- "Clean and comfy" Lai Nga A t. 07/11/2012
Quite a scenic ride.
- "Full of missings journey" Mehdi h. 31/10/2012
Even though I was not in the right mood for the new experience of raileurope (as I had left my girlfriend after seeing her for the first time after couple of months), I found the train and the travel, so convenient and amazing. The staff also treated respectfully. Among my friends, we judge the satisfaction of an experience (or a city, a brand, a product, etc.) by asking ourselves whether we want to repeat it, and I am definitely willing to re-experience travelling with raileurope.

Thanks for this opportunity to provide feedback re our recent train journey. For a lot of first time tourists taking the train can be daunting but your system and procedures from your website to your station officers made this process a breeze. Secondly, we were delighted having a refreshment carriage available with a very personable waiter serving us. So thanks again and if we or any friends need your services we would highly recommend them. Regards Brett and Olga Switzer Brisbane Australia
