If you're planning to travel on the Continent, there's nothing easier or more romantic than seeing Europe by Train.
Rail Europe (check fares) sells train tickets, passes, and packages online for railroads that criss-cross Europe and remains a best bet for Americans heading overseas since:
- Train fares are generally cheaper when purchased in advance
- Prices are in U.S. dollars rather than foreign currency
- Some passes are only available for sale in the United States.
Relaxing Trains vs. Stressful Planes
Instead of devoting time and expense to rush to an airport outside a city, train passengers find their terminals located in the center of town, where they can easily reach hotels and attractions.
The best news of all: Rail Europe provides discounts for couples.
