Rail Online Introduces Trenitalia for UK Travellers
27 July 2023 Samantha Anderson

Rail Online, the international rail ticketing platform and consumer champion, is now offering UK travellers the ability to book Trenitalia’s full range of Italian train journeys, as well as a selection of cross-border connections.

With tickets available for purchase up to six months in advance, Rail Online now provides access to Trenitalia’s extensive fleet of sleek high-speed Frecce trains, connecting major cities and charming lesser-known destinations across Italy.

Trenitalia’s network not only covers Italy but also includes international routes, such as the popular twice-daily service between Milan and Paris, via Lyon and Torino and trains from Milan and Como to the Swiss destinations of Zurich, Spiez and Bern. The introduction of Trenitalia services on Rail Online’s platform opens up exciting opportunities for UK travellers to explore Italy’s world-class cultural and natural attractions.

Rail Online General Manager, Kirsty Blows, says: “With most major cities within three hours of each other and robust competition ensuring train prices are some of the most competitive in Western Europe, high-speed rail travel in Italy is easy, efficient and cost effective.

“At Rail Online we’re passionate about making rail travel as seamless and enjoyable as possible by providing carrier fare price matching, instant refunds on e-tickets, and most importantly zero booking fees. Our innovative platform empowers customers to search, compare, and book rail journeys with ease. The ‘live’ inventory is priced in local currency, enabling UK travellers to plan and manage their itineraries conveniently and with no foreign currency fees.

“By making it easier for travellers to book train journeys, Rail Online is ensuring more Britons than ever before will enjoy the opportunity to experience one of Europe’s most revered rail networks as they explore one of the world’s great destinations.”
