Are you planning a trip to Europe, but want to avoid some of the hassle that comes with going to the airport during your vacation? If so, we have a new feature you may be interested in checking out here on TripAdvisor.
Today, we announced the beta launch of train travel options in our TripAdvisor Flights meta-search engine. Now, when you conduct a flight search on TripAdvisor for cities across continental Europe, we’ll display rail itineraries alongside flight choices for routes where it’s relevant and in some cases priced even cheaper than air travel, such as London to Paris or Frankfurt to Brussels.
In addition, you’ll be able to access all of the helpful tools offered by our flight search, including our innovative fees estimator, which allows you to easily compare the true cost of your flight and train options.
When conducting a flight search between European cities, just look out for the “Take the Train” filter right above the search results. Rail travel options will be marked with an orange train icon.
The feature is available today for TripAdvisor Flights on our websites in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, France, Italy, Germany and Spain. You can also access train options through the TripAdvisor mobile apps and website.
Do you have any fun train travel experiences you’d like to share? Or are there any countries where you’d like to see us add rail down the road? Let us know in the comments section.
