Travelling with a Eurail Pass in Italy is now more stress-free thanks to a new seat reservation function for popular Trenitalia high speed Le Frecce trains via the free rail planner app.
The app, powered by Eurail Group, is an offline trip planner mobile application designed to enhance the overall Eurail experience.
It enables travellers to conveniently determine their European train timetable options, see where connecting routes or reservations are necessary, and features other valuable information such as benefit and discount offers for Eurail Pass holders across Europe.
Due to extensive demand, high speed Le Frecce trains and cross-border routes travelling within Italy can require a seat reservation to ensure the comfort of all passengers.
The newly launched Rail Planner App e-reservation function means customers can book, pay, and receive their seat reservation all through their smartphone when connected to the internet.
Eurail travellers have the option to either print their e-reservation or simply show the details on their mobile device when on-board the train.
“With the Rail Planner App having reached over one million users, and Italy being a top year-round destination for Eurail travellers, together with Trenitalia we’re delighted to be able to offer passengers a convenient e-reservation tool.
“This latest innovation is part of our continued efforts to ensure all our customers can maximise their unique European experience,” said Silvia Gorlach, Eurail Group sales and marketing manager.
Eurail Passes can be used to travel in up to 28 European countries and offer travellers the flexibility to create their own unique rail itinerary across Europe.
