This website has been designed exclusively with the corporate traveller in mind, offering exclusive and flexible high speed rail fares in Europe, tailor made for the business traveller.

High speed rail provides enormous benefits when travelling to Europe on business, with unparalleled daily frequency and speed of trains. European business travellers have a simple formula to determine the best mode of transport: If the train time is 4 hours or less, it will be faster than flying, regardless of the flight time.

Consider the advantages of travelling by high speed rail in Europe:

  • No time spent travelling to and from airports, given trains depart and arrive in the heart of each city.
  • Minimal check in, security and immigration procedures.
  • No luggage weight restrictions.
  • The ability to work on-line throughout the entire journey.
  • Mobile phone access.
  • Power socket at seat.
  • Business lounge access for many trains including Eurostar (London, Paris and Brussels), ICE (Berlin, Hamburg and Munich), AVE (Madrid and Barcelona) and Thalys (Brussels, Cologne and Amsterdam).
  • Trains are far less impacted by adverse weather conditions than other methods of transportation.
  • Trains are more environmentally friendly

So if your corporate clients are looking for a reliable, efficient and economic method of moving between European cities, then look no further, as high speed trains are the answer.
