AndyB in conversation with Mark Smith, The Man in Seat61, about Fares and Ticketing in Europe
There is in my opinion no one who knows the in and outs and complexities, and opportunities, of the European Railways fares and ticketing systems as The Man in Seat61.
AndyB and Mark Smith, The Man in Seat61, chat about why the fares are so complicated in Europe – a child fare, for example, is set a different age between companies and in fact the Germans let under 15’s travel free of charge if accompanied by an adult. Different railway ticketing systems don’t talk to each other and also the varied booking windows that different countries operate to are explained.
In part 2 some of the creative ways of bringing the cost of European rail travel in price are revealed.
