When traveling around Europe (or many other locations for that matter) people most often think about using a plane. What they don’t realize, however, is that traveling by train might actually be a better option for them. Here’s why:
- Check in times are much more complicated for a flight than they are for a train. If you think about the length of the journey, and add in check in times, baggage hassles and waiting time, you might just see that the train gets you there faster.
- You can bring more baggage. Remember, when you take the train, that there is no limit to your baggage. This is a big plus for many people, particularly today when they appear to be charging for every item you try to bring on the plane.
- Lines: There are much shorter lines when you take the train and security is nothing like it is with a flight.
- The seats are infinitely more comfortable on the train – and you can get up and walk around. Enjoy a snack in the buffet cars and walk the length of the train, as you desire. And when you’re ready to relax, you’ll find a far more comfortable seat than the one on the plane.
