Rail Europe Offers Deferred Payment with Bill Me Later on all Rail Purchases booked on www.raileurope.com

WHITE PLAINS, NY April 15, 2009—Rail Europe Inc., the North American leader in European rail travel, announced its plans to offer a deferred payment option to those planning a European rail vacation this summer.

Now through July 9, 2009, Rail Europe’s U.S. customers purchasing European rail products on www.raileurope.com, can select the Bill Me Later® payment option at checkout, and have the flexibility to defer payment for their vacation by up to 90 days.

“With transatlantic airfares at the lowest level in many years and hotels lowering prices by up to 40%; Rail Europe expects that a certain amount of U.S. travelers will take advantage of how the recession is affecting travel prices,” says Frédéric Langlois, President and CEO of Rail Europe Inc. Langlois goes on to say that Rail Europe’s products are already well priced and the deferred payment option now allows anyone wishing to have that true European experience, the opportunity to book a rail-cation now, and pay for it up to 90 days later.

Rail Europe, the largest distributor of European rail products in North America, encourages you to make train travel a part of your European travel experience. The company celebrates over 75 years as a leader in European travel and believes that the spirit of train travel is about enjoying the simple pleasures, respecting the environment and connecting with people, places and cultures.
