Why should I buy my train ticket before I leave for Europe?

Book your ticket early and enjoy a reserved seat.

We find that when traveling abroad, it’s always best to book your train tickets before you depart North America. That way, you’ll arrive with the proper documents in hand and avoid fully booked trains that can disrupt your travel plans. This is especially important during the summer months and holiday times when trains in Europe tend to sell out quickly due to increased tourism.

Most train tickets are available for purchase 60-90 days in advance of the day you’d like to travel.

Again, it’s best to reserve as soon as possible to guarantee that you’ll have a seat onboard the train of your choice.
