Question:
How much does it cost?
Answer:
The ‘from’ prices are listed on the package pages and are based on 4 people travelling in low season. The price may be higher depending on the number of people travelling, their age, nationality and specific events in certain destinations. For large groups and for low season the price may be slightly lower than what is indicated on the package pages. We don’t believe in offering a “from” price that is unattainable, instead we call it the “average from” price based on what most people book. Request a quote for a definitive price.
Question:
What are the night trains like?
Answer:
The night trains are a great way to save time by travelling overnight in a comfortable environment. As far as availability allows, we try to get our customers into individual bunk beds in mixed lockable compartments of 6 people, with bedding included. If you want to travel in single-sex compartments or with fewer people this can be arranged as well at an extra cost. There are toilets located at one or both ends of the carriage and there is a guard that will supervise the corridor, check your tickets and let you know when you’re arriving. Sometimes the guards will take your passport and ticket off you when you get on – don’t panic – this is a safety precaution and they’ll always get them back to you in the morning.
Question:
What happens if I miss a train?
Answer:
We usually offer a couple of trains that you can take in the day. However, sometimes we need to reserve specific trains, so if you miss them, or there are no more trains that day, then you will have to get a new reservation for a train later in the day or, occasionally, the next day in order to catch up with the itinerary. In any case, if this happens, call us and we will try and help you.
Question:
Do you schedule in night travel?
Answer:
Sometimes, yes. Some packages have one or two night trains in order to cover big distances such as Prague to Krakow. In this case, the extra charge for the night train will be covered by us as you won’t be requiring a hostel. Details will be provided when you submit a quote request for a route. If you choose a Loop package these are designed to cover as much distance as possible in the shortest space of time, so on those you might find that most journeys if not all involve night trains or night coaches.
Question:
I don’t know what package I want! Can you help?!
Answer:
Of course. Check out our interrail planning guide and have a look at our destination guides for some of our cities. If you’re not quite sure where to start, just give us a call or email and we can provide you with expert advice on all the destinations.
Question:
Do I travel as a group or with somebody from Euroventure?
Answer:
With our independent Interrai packages, you’ll travel on your own or in your own group of friends. We don’t add other customers to your trip and you won’t have a guide with you. That’s not to say you won’t meet people – travelling in hostels you’re bound to meet loads of cool people, but by travelling with us you’re free to do that at your own pace. Euroventure trips are all about independence – you just follow the itinerary and do your own thing, knowing that we’re only a phone call away if you run into difficulty. If you'd prefer to travel with a group, we also run group tours in Europe and Asia. For these trips, you'll travel with a group of likeminded backpackers and at least one guide from Euroventure. With these tours, we'll travel in a group and stay together in hostels, however in each location you will have some free time to explore independently.
