He said that it was to a traveller’s benefit that many European rail operators were now offering these tickets as often being of better value for certain types of travel, than traditional Rail Passes.
Mr Hume added, “Most trains open bookings three months in advance so it is best for Australians to book tickets prior to departure as they will often be more expensive closer to the day of travel.
“An added bonus is that travelers will not endure stress and waste time waiting in queues or struggling with language difficulties.
As an example of costings Mr Hume said that passengers beginning their European travel in London can start with cheap Eurostar fares which start from $80 to the heart of Paris.
“In Europe they can take advantage of cheap fares of from $46 in first class from Venice to Rome or $105 from Frankfurt to Berlin, also in first class.
He said that most of the tickets are electronic so the traveler simply prints the tickets at home before travel and on arrival simply board the train and finds their seats.
