As @badjohn mentions, going to the ticket office (or any staff at the railway station) will work. If you are not able to go to the office or do not notice your loss till later, there will be a way to get your things. Most railway companies have a central location or information office. Again any staff member of the company can tell you where to find the ...

Go to the ticket office at the next major station and inquire. You may need to return later as they will not know until the train is cleaned. In your case, it will continue to Faro and then return to Lisbon. So, you might need to wait until the next day. The office will be able to inquire on lost property via the web. If there is a probable match then ...

First of all, the Khorgos border is no longer operational: Since late 2018, the former Khorgos border crossing is no longer active and now only functions as a Special Economic Zone with discount shopping and tacky tourist attractions. The new border is called Nur Zholy and lies a few kilometers south of Khorgos. It is not yet marked on the map: follow the ...

The RER vending machines will probably only accept coins and card payments and no bank notes at all. At the airport, there are however staffed ticket counters where you can buy a ticket and pay cash and get proper change.

The Hyperdia screenshot gives a hint: the curled arrow indicates backtracking, and that makes this trip a bit special. Here's a (simplified) diagram of the relevant train lines: To Asahikawa ^ | | Hakodate Main Line | | Shiroishi @==================> To New Chitose Airport | Chitose ...

Centre de la Hublias appears to be 6 km from the Gare de Rennes. Take a taxi. You could arrange the taxi pick-up the day before by speaking to a taxi driver, or calling a taxi company on your mobile.

Don't waste your time and a lot of money to change your TGV ticket. At CDG jump on Les BusDirect #4 for 17€ and get off at Montparnass Gare and board your TGV to Rennes without hassle. Bon voyages. Les Bus Direct enter link description here

It depends on your fare, some TGV tickets can be changed, some can be changed for a small fee up to two days before travel, others yet cannot or not without a hefty fee. If your fare allows it and seats are available, it could be possible to change the date and time without additional fee. Additionally, there are very few TGV from CDG to Rennes (one a day, ...

You need to change your ticket, this can be done online if you have an e-ticket, the penalty ammount will be displayed there: A exchange quote will be displayed together with any penalties. On validation, a confirmation email will be sent to the email address you provided during exchange. After completing your ticket exchange online, you will be ...

The train from Montparnasse to Rennes and the train from Charles de Gaulle to Rennes are different trains, so you are looking to change the booking entirely. Depending on the ticket type you booked, you may be able to get a refund on the original ticket and book a new one. If it is "Modifiable sous conditions", then you should be able to get a refund (...

I strongly recommend to bring along food. Train restaurant car's dishes are not popular. It's not the same as meal in planes.


2

Turns out things might have changed, if the sources in the other answers once were right. The differences are these: Better seats in a 1+2 configuration. Dedicated 1st class conductor. All cars are closer to the restaurant car. More storage space. Less noise (most likely). Generally better WC access and state. Faster boarding. The 1+2 configuration ...

Your options include: Le Bus Direct line 4, which will get you directly from CDG to Gare Montparnasse in about 1h30, depending on traffic. Cost is 18 euros. RER B from CDG to Denfert-Rochereau, then line 6 to Gare Montparnasse. A bit cheaper (10,30€, the ticket is valid to any metro station), and not dependent on traffic, but you need to change trains, with ...

After having travelled on this train, I can confirm that there is no restaurant car or bar. You can of course still buy tea from the attendant!


3

40 minutes to change trains should be more than enough since all you have to do is move from one platform to the other within the same station - Italo and Trenitalia trains both arrive in the same station i.e. Milano Centrale. However, any delay will obviously impact your ability to make it. Unfortunately, since you are using two different companies, I do ...

Yes, you can pre-order a meal you have paid for. On some trains, you may also be able to pre-order snacks and even souvenirs. To pre-order a meal you have paid for in the menu, go to Пассажирам | Услуги | Сервис выбора предоплаченного питания. In the form, under «Поиск билета», fill in the form. The entries correspond to what it says on your e-ticket or ...

@jpatokal is right, "you definitely cannot count on having vegetarian meals on long-distance trains in Russia" (as well as on a menu). However, there might be something in a restaurant car as, e.g., a salad suitable for a vegetarian. In fact, I traveled with a vegetarian girl this July on 056Ы, and she was quite happy with salads from a restaurant car and ...


27

No, you definitely cannot count on having vegetarian meals on long-distance trains in Russia. In fact even the menu is misleading, as quite commonly only a very limited selection of dishes are actually available on any given train. Beware that fresh/hot food selections at stations are also quite limited, and vegetarian options even more so. (They've ...

In Portugal train prices are stable, they never escalate. Only difference is that there are discounts (up to 65%) for people who buy some days ahead. You can check information here. The big disadvantage when buying on the spot is that tickets may run out. This doesn't happen often and many times they only run out in second class, so you may still find some ...

Prices in Portuguese trains do change with time. This only happens in intercity trains, like the one you want to get. This is a fairly new trend. Prices used to be the same all the time bought online or not. In advance or not. The market is now starting to develop at this level. This means you can get good deals if buying in advance, but don't lose your ...

A quick search on Google got me the site railway.uz. Seems pretty official to me and the site is linked by Seat61. There's a link to online booking there.

Generally you should get seats next to each other if you reserve in a single booking. You could also try your luck making two individual bookings in rapid succession both requesting window seats. Normally seats are booked from one end of the train to the other so that might get you something like a 50% chance that you land in adjacent facing seats. Most of ...

Whitley Bridge is a rural station in Yorkshire, near Leeds, about 250 km north of London. According to Wikipedia it is only served by a few trains a day, so unless you are traveling at exactly the right time, you'll need to take a taxi or local bus from a nearby station with better service, such as Selby, Knottingley or one of the Pontefract stations. If ...

As stated these are international trains and I think the route in Sweden is much longer than the route in Denmark. Öresundtåg is owned by 6 Swedish regions and the Danish DSB. All intercity and some local trains in Sweden have plastic bags by the seats. They are usually located under the windows (pictured below). Most Danish intercity trains also have a ...

Yes, you can, but not recommended. You should inform the TTE/TC before doing so. The reason is after you leave if any illegal activity occurs, then they can suspect you. Then it will be your responsibility that you are not attached to it. So the better option always informs the TTE/TC.

Lounge access depends on what kind of business class ticket you buy. The FRECCIALounges page says Who can enter You can enter with [...] an Executive or Salottino ticket or a carnet of 10 Business travel tickets. Clearly saying a single business class ticket is not enough but the more expensive ones are. BTW the same is true for the FRECCIAClub ...

The Freccebianca experience is summed up really well by Show Me The Journey: There are lounges, including, as you asked, at Roma Termini If you are travelling in 1st class, there will be a trolley service of complimentary snacks and drinks – prosecco is one of the options, espresso as well As food is on a trolley only, no kiosk/restaurant (although travel ...

If you book early you should get "perfect" seat in the sense that you will sit next to eachother. If you want to sit in front of eachother then it's probably a bit harder and you then have two ways of accomplishing this: You can try asking customer service (maybe a boutique at the station) if they can assign you specific seats. Some of the agent are more ...

If your intention is to cross the border from Germany to Austria, that is easy once you are legally inside the Schengen area (includes all of the continental EU except Croatia, Romania and Bulgaria, plus non EU members such as Switzerland and Norway). Systematic border checks have been abolished and the entire EU is a single customs union so there should be ...


1

Adding to what others have said, theoretically there are no systematic border checks between Schengen countries. However, there are frequent "random" checks. I live in Germany and have travelled 4 or 5 times in the last year to Poland and Czech Republic via train and have been checked for a passport twice. With respect to Austria specifically, there are ...


8

That's possible, and very easy. so is it basically just like taking the train within Germany then? Do I even need to bring my passport? Sadly, it is not just like taking a train within Germany. In theory, it should be. In practice, due to developments since 2015 onwards, no. You may be, and should expect to be controlled at the border. And you had better ...

The train between Munich and Innsbruck through Kufstein has spot checks. It doesn't stop but the border police enters the train a few stations before Kufstein and walks through the carriages. If you look suspicious, they want to check your identity so have your passport at hand. There are no customs checks.


31

As long as you stay within the Schengen Area, you should be able to travel freely without any systematic passport checks, so in most cases, it looks exactly like domestic travel. The Schengen Area is composed of 22 of the 28 EU member states, as well as some other non-EU states such as Switzerland. Germany and Austria are both part of the Schengen Area. ...

It is extremely easy and there is no check. As a non-Schengen national I took the train between Austria and Germany twice in the last few months, and there was no suggestion that passports might be checked. I also took a bus tour that crossed the border and we were not even advised to bring passports. There are not normally checks when crossing the border ...

You should always have your passport with you when out of your own country.  Within Schengen, you’ll not likely be asked for it, but it’s possible, and if you don’t have it when asked, definitely a hassle or worse. You can probably book train trips on whatever site you use within Germany, but you can also easily do it at Loco. There are probably other ...

Travelling regularly between Germany and Italy I usually get stopped at custom when entering Switzerland, a Schengen Area country but not part of the EU, but never happened when crossing Austria. There should not be any barrier except due diligence police controls on trains and at boarding in the train station. Edit: corrected as Switzerland is actually ...

After arriving at the mainline terminal station from your origin, you will be able to use your ticket for a single journey to a London Underground station anywhere in zones 1 or 2. This includes Old Street (which is in zone 1). After exiting a London Underground station, your ticket will no longer be valid (and the barriers will mark it electronically to ...


24

You can finish your journey at any Underground station in Zone 1 or 2. You entered Old Street in the booking engine, but the national ticketing system can't sell tickets to a specific Underground station, so it sold you a (more flexible) alternative. Bear in mind that once you've left the Underground, the ticket isn't valid for any further journeys, unlike ...

I, too, found CrossCountry's website and FAQs equivocal, so I asked CrossCountry about this in June 2019, and they told me that there is a charge if you are amending a specified train with a different operator. So, it seems that the "no admin fee" rule applies only if the reserved train is a CrossCountry train and the amendment is made via the website (i.e.:...

Given that Advance tickets are sometimes a lot cheaper than an off-peak day return, you could consider: Advance tickets for one particular train to Southampton; and then Advance tickets for two or three different options on the way back. Then, if you want to go home earlier, you use an earlier booked option (and not use the tickets for the later option(s) ...

Do I have to book the return (and even the forth ticket) in advance? No. In Great Britain, there are two main types of ticket — Advance tickets, which must be booked in advance, are always single tickets, and tie you to one specific train; and "walk-up" tickets (mostly (Super) Off-Peak and Anytime Singles and Returns), which are flexible and allow you ...

I live in Hamburg and while maybe not all over Germany you can take the bike with you inside the train, you definitely can in HVV trains in Hamburg: https://www.hvv.de/en/service/cyclists/bikes-on-board-hvv-services


2

That is a typical saving for booking on specific trains, well in advance (advance tickets are sold in limited numbers and do sell out). You can save a fair bit with a family and friends railcard, but that costs money itself. If you end up buying the anytime day return, the railcard should pay for itself on this one trip. Mine did the first long distance ...

Assuming you are returning the same day, an Anytime Day Return ticket from London to Southampton costs £47.20 for an adult and £23.60 for a child. This ticket is fully flexible and can be used for one journey from London to Southampton and back on the specified day. This ticket can be purchased in advance or at the station on the day. It would probably ...

Got an answer from a native Athenian; Hey, I looked as well but didn't find any later trains from the airport. Its going to be close but if not, you can take the bus. Both are not dangerous, lot of people leaving the airport, you wont be alone. As for the walk to Kotzia Square, there is no issue there as well. Both stops are one of the ...

Following are are 2 websites which I found very accurate and they refresh the status frequently: Official PNR enquiry website: http://www.indianrail.gov.in/enquiry/PNR/PnrEnquiry.html?locale=en. After entering your PNR, you can check live running status, seating charts etc. Here PNR (short for Passenger Name Record) is kind of an itinerary id and printed on ...

Thalys is a special case, other trains between France and Germany are usable with a regular German ticket - e.g. TGV are treated exactly the same as ICE as long as you're not leaving Germany (and vice versa in France). Just as an addition, there are additional options: You can directly book a ticket with a lay-over in Köln. Deutsche Bahn allows for this ...

You will need a separate ticket for the RE. Thalys and Deutsche Bahn (German Railways) are different companies and you cannot use a Thalys ticket for RE.

Can I travel by train from the Schengen area to England in my given time? Yes. According to https://www.seat61.com/Hungary.htm you’re looking at a journey time of around 24 hours via Munich, Stuttgart, Paris, then London. You’d have to depart Budapest on day 9 to be sure of exiting Schengen on day 10.

Yes. You have Schengen and UK Visas. As you travel through different Schengen countries, this is counted as one visit/trip. It is only when you leave the Schengen area like you will when you enter the UK) that this visit ends. Please note that this single entry Schengen visa, which means that you will need to fly home from the UK, as you will have used up ...
