GoEuro launches in Italy

The easy-to-use search platform that compares and combines trains, bus and flights, today announces its expansion into Italy, having added new partnerships with several bus companies and becoming the first to partner with both Italian train operators.

In less than 18 months since the platform was launched, Italy becomes the seventh national market now available via the GoEuro website, joining Germany, UK, Spain, Luxembourg, Belgium, and Netherlands. The addition of Italy adds a further 38 airports, 6,663 train stations, and 1,082 bus stations – bringing the total number of possible journey destinations to 32,959.

GoEuro.it provides a contrast to traditional online booking platforms: Travellers no longer switch between local websites and operators to arrange onward travel from main international airports. GoEuro compiles all possible journey options to a required destination in one search, displaying available flights, trains and bus connections – all in a user’s native language and currency. Whether journeying from Naples to Milan, or Bologna to Rome, GoEuro offers passengers the best possible transport options and combinations based on price, journey duration, and convenience, irrespective of whether their final destination is a large city, small town, or village.

Naren Shaam, CEO of GoEuro, comments: “Italy not only delivers us great bus and rail partners, it gives our customers expanded access to transportation in one of the greatest destinations in Europe.  Italy is ranked 5th in the world’s top international tourism destinations by the World Tourism Organisation, and visitors will be able to make the most of the excellent transport links available to them. Italy has wisely invested in developing a strong rail system; GoEuro will help them achieve even greater international recognition and more customers by connecting tourists with travel options that they might not otherwise have explored.”
