It should be instant. Source: Italian and booked hundreds of trains (two yesterday). Anyway, you only need the Booking Code (PNR) in order to board the train and that should also be shown during the last step of the booking process, a page that the Trenitalia site suggests to print. You can also log in and go in the customer area. At the bottom of the ...

Assuming you went by train (I'm not sure if the same rules apply to the car-train) you should be entitled to 25% refund if you were between 1h and 2h late at arrival, according to the European Rail Passenger Rights. That website also states you should claim that refund from the railway - many have some online forms for that, Eurostar has information here. ...

The most ubiquitous kind of place that sells stamps in Spain is tobacconists (estancos): in addition to selling cigarettes, most of them sell other regulated products such as stamps. Look for a sign that says “tabacos” (they often sell stamps even if there is no visible indication on the outside). The map of Barcelona Sants (linked from the [ADIF station ...

History. When the railways were first built in the 1840s parliament wouldn't allow them to build in the city center. The underground was the solution for how to get between one station and another (as well as how to commute in London). So historically through tickets between different companies using different main London terminii included the connecting ...

If you know something about the history of Glencoe a "dreich" day may be the most suitable for a visit there. Note that the topography makes the climate relatively changeable (specially on the East coast, where four seasons in one day is not unusual). It snowed in Aberdeen quite heavily in July (mid summer!) yet within 48 hours Aberdeen was showing as the ...

In Scotland in the winter, you can get all sorts of weather. It might be mild and damp, or freezing cold, or blizzards, or some mixture of these. But if the weather is nice, the highlands can be beautiful, with snow on the hills and ice on the lochs. So it can be very nice for walking, or other outdoor activities. There are plenty of scenic easy walks ...

It's not entirely clear where your trip ends, but if you're flying out directly from Kyushu, you are probably better off purchasing the JR Kyushu Rail Pass instead. If you do need to return to Osaka, you should probably get the JR Rail Pass. The "northern Kyushu pass" is ¥7,200/9,260 for 3/5 days and covers Beppu, Aso and Kumamoto. If you want to go ...

First apparently this line is indeed operated with TGVs and voyages-sncf says that there is a restaurant coach on these. I found the exact menu but in French (and with bad quality graphics). In short, they offer a choice (I mean there are multiple items of each type) of hot dishes and cold sandwiches, desserts, cookies, hot and cold drinks, usually packaged ...

SNCF's TGV page has a section about the TGV BAR/Restaurant which you might want to look at. They offer both snacks but also full meals - e.g. the page mentions: Several suggestions are available for a wide range of prices: Menu Bio : €11,90* Menu Gourmand (entree, main course, drink) : from €8,90 to €12,90* Menu Malin (sandwich, drink, ...

There may be a barrier to doing the purchases online using your existing account But as it says on this page http://www.16-25railcard.co.uk/eligibility-benefits/eligibility/ You can purchase whilst 24. My recommendation would be (and what I did when I was a bit younger) to make the purchase in person at a railway station. And to purchase it as if it ...

Yes you can do that, but you need to create a new account. From the FAQ: Providing the expiry date of your Railcard is within 30 days you will be able to renew it. Just log back into your account. You can renew your Railcard if it is due to expire before your 26th birthday. ... ... You will not be able to renew a Railcard if its date of issue ...

Based on the end of the line, I would say that seating on the left side is best. You would be on the lake side in Nantua and Sylans. I don't recall the first part of the journey (on the LGV Sud-Est) as particularly scenic. Upper level is nice on “Duplex” rolling stock but do note that many Lyria-branded trains are in fact single level. Furthermore, since ...

In Berlin, the bigger problem is that there is no long-distance train station in any of the airports. In spite of the official website's rhetoric, Tegel is actually relatively poorly connected to the local and national transport networks, you need to take a bus to get anywhere, there isn't even a good S-Bahn or U-Bahn connection. Since it's much closer to ...

In the Netherlands, there are different rail cards, some group discounts and special offers but no discount for multiple/return travel. A day return costs exactly the same as a single. Except for international trains like Thalys, available fare do not change over time and reserving a specific seat is not possible so absolutely no reason not to buy single ...

edit: phoog beat me to the short answer, but offers less background. If you look up the 1 Train at the MTA website, you'll see that it does not stop at Cortlandt St as that station is temporarily closed. After the September 11 attacks, a number of subway stations were closed. Their treatment in subsequent maps is presented clearly on Brian Abbott's blog: ...

The "Express" here is for express buses, which serve parts of the "outer" boroughs that are not well served by subways. These buses have a higher fare. Express trains in the subway system do not have a higher fare. Your fare card is checked when you swipe it in the turnstile to enter the system. Once you're in, you're in. You can stay as long as you ...

It means the station is closed. In this case, the station was closed after it was destroyed on September 11, 2001, and it has not yet been reopened. I believe it will be reopened sometime in the next few years as construction is completed on the site.

I contacted East Coast directly and below is the response: If a Railcard cannot be produced at the time of purchase or at any ticket examination then the full undiscounted fare will be payable as if no ticket or Railcard were held. In addition to this, a valid Railcard must be held for the full duration of both the outward and return portions of period ...

No, there is only cargo rail service between from Antananarivo to Antsirabe. The only public transportation options are taxi-brousse and plane.

Thanks for your clarification. Looking at a combination of the east coast, network card, and national rail websites I believed that the restrictions that east coast impose as you referred to are time related. You linked to this page http://www.network-railcard.co.uk/terms/ which shows that east cost trains might have restrictions, I then reffered to the ...

The Mu is actually a 4 and a M. It's a special fare if you book four seats around a table at once. The fare shown is for one seat but you must book all four (e.g. for a group or family). If you have a party of four people, it can be a very good deal but you can also choose that to have the comfort of seating on your own. P is “promo” (“discount”), ...

Long-distance and suburban trains terminate at the Roman Termini train station. From the train station, you need to change to the Metro station. Metro trains run undergound on dedicated tracks. When you disembark the train, follow the white-on-red M signs towards the Metro station. In the Metro station, you'll find ticket vending machines, then fare gates ...

Yes,you have to reserve for 2nd sitting on any train in Indian Railways. The fare for the train you have asked is Rs.80 for second sitting. For more details see here.

If there is no exit available to you, you can alway use the 'i' (for information) station next to the gates (shown on the right in the picture). After hitting the blue button, you should get in touch with a person stationed somewhere else, who should be able to help you.

It is possible to get from Bucharest to Sarajevo on train - likely requiring a rather roundabout route via Budapest, Hungary and Zagreb, Croatia or even Salzburg, Austria an thus easily taking as much as 48h. A map of the railway lines in Europe may be found on the interrail website and their timetable/trip planner will provide connections and times. ...

A little bit wrong in places. The Deutsche Bahn Regs specifically allow the ticket to be shown as a PDF file on a suitable machine - tablet, laptop etc. - from an email attachment. Two problems though. One is that the code has to be displayed in original size and dimensions. Not all machines do that easily, with mobiles hardly possible. Secondly, some of the ...
