It’s a Plane, It’s a Car…No, It’s a Train

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Lines: There are much shorter lines when you take the train and security is nothing like it is with a flight.
  4. 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.
