Did you know that you can use the Rail Planner App to plan train journeys throughout Europe?

Travel by train is a valid alternative when traveling in advanced and technological countries.
Travel standards have improved a lot and almost always exceed what we are used to finding on the plane.

Modern trains are very comfortable and offer services unthinkable when traveling by plane.
In almost all of Europe, the high speed of trains has significantly contracted travel times and often traveling by train between European capitals is much faster than using air flights.

If you then add up the time needed to reach the airports (always far from the city center) and to complete the formalities to board the plane (much more complicated than trains), the competitiveness of the train is evident!

Use the Rail Planner App to travel by train in Europe

Maybe you didn't know that traveling in Europe by train is very easy, fun and very affordable.
It is possible to purchase a single ticket valid (unlimited) on the entire European network for a predefined period of time!
On the site interrail.eu you will find all the information you need to organize your train journey across Europe in total autonomy.

In fact, you buy a "Pass" which for a certain number of days (you decide how many) allows you to travel freely on European trains.
There are two types of "pass":

You can use the App Rail Planner to purchase an “Interrail Global Pass” and you will be able to travel freely on all trains (and ferries) of 33 EU countries for all the days you purchase the pass.

Or you can use the App Rail Planner to purchase an "Interrail One Country Pass" and you will be able to travel freely on the entire railway network (and ferries) of the country you have chosen at the time of purchase.
This option is designed for tourists who intend to visit one country in depth and not travel to other countries during their trip.

How to use the Rail Planner App?

Once you have purchased your "pass" (you can do it from the website or directly from the App) you will always have the pass with you on your smartphone to show to the control staff on the entire railway network (or on the ferries):
you can travel without having to worry about anything. The Pass can be purchased (or used) up to 11 months prior to travel.

At the time of purchase, you will have a series of options that differ in their duration in days:

in practice, you can buy "travel days" in a certain period of time:
in the case of the image above, the offer marked as "Most Popular" allows you to purchase a "Pass" valid for seven days (in which you can travel) within a period of one month.

How to use the Rail Planner App to plan your trip?

At this point you have at your disposal a very powerful tool to plan your travel by train!
You just have to choose the main destination of your trip and then all the secondary ones.
An example?
I choose to go to Paris starting from Rome. By purchasing my pass, I enter the day needed for the outward journey and the day for the return journey.
Then, based in Paris, I can buy the travel "days" necessary to reach the secondary travel destinations. In this case, I have another five travel days that I can use to reach secondary destinations.

If, on the other hand, I have purchased an “Interrail Globel Pass”, I can decide to plan an itinerary that includes staying overnight in each destination and traveling every day to a new city.

The convenience and practicality are evident and, on balance, the "passes" are also very convenient.

This App is a very easy to use tool and is perfect for independent travelers who like to organize their travels independently.

The only limitation: the "Passes" can only be purchased by European citizens or permanently resident in Europe.

If you read this Blog you are an enterprising traveler and I want to invite you to live a unique experience.

We are forming one Community of Travelers who will exclusively test the functions of the new digital platform we have created to organize and plan trips and holidays in total autonomy and avoiding any form of intermediation.

"We believe that the free and spontaneous sharing of information is the key to making" travel "a habit achievable by everyone."

When you return from a trip you are in possession of valuable information: hotels, restaurants, tourist guides, the experiences you have lived!

These are information that you will never use again but which are indispensable for those who want to make a trip similar to yours.

If you have lived an unforgettable experience, you have brought home all the information necessary to replicate it!

So why not share them?
Why not leave the information you collected on site or during your experience to other travelers?
This way others can save time (and money) and experience travel experiences based on your stories.

We want to create a database of information available to everyone.
Take part in the project and you too can find the information you need to plan your next trip with the help of the community!

We are creating a digital platform where you can find (and exchange) all the information you need to plan and organize trips and holidays in total autonomy!

All this thanks to the "principle of sharing" and the solidarity between travelers who share information collected during their travel experiences.

If you want to participate in the final phase of the development of this new digital platform and become Beta Tester (free) by sending criticisms, suggestions and new ideas ...
