Rail Plus is now offering Australian travellers new city passes for three of Europe’s most exciting destinations – Rome, Barcelona and Berlin.
The Rome Pass ($46 per person)
Valid for three consecutive days, the Rome Pass combines free use of the Eternal City’s public transport network with easy access to some of its most famous cultural attractions (including the Coliseum). Other bonuses include discounted tickets to exhibitions, events and a free map.
The Barcelona Card ($44 per person)
The two-day Barcelona Card offers free entrance and discounts to more than 80 museums, leisure activities, cultural activities, shops, bars and restaurants. The card – which comes with a guidebook, city-map and metro-map – also provides free access to the city’s public transportation system and a transfer from Barcelona’s Airport El Prat to the city centre.
The Berlin Pass ($92 per person / $110 per person)
Available in two- or three-day versions, the Berlin Pass entitles holders to travel on the city’s public transport (zones ABC) and opens the doors to more than 50 top attractions, including the Berliner Dom, Pergamon Museum, a hop-on-hop-off open top bus tour, and the Checkpoint Charlie Museum. Card holders also receive a 95-page guidebook offering information about each attraction, how to get there, opening/closing times and ‘insider tips’.
Over the past few years Rail Plus has steadily expanded its portfolio of non-rail products, which now encompasses sightseeing passes, day tours, and theatre and attraction tickets across the Continent.
National Sales and Marketing Manager Greg McCallum says that travel agents now book a significant proportion of these passes, tours and tickets as stand-alone products.
“One of the key reasons is that Rail Plus charges no booking fees and requires no minimum package spend, making the process of finding and securing these incremental products online both simple and efficient,” McCallum says.
