Rome2rio Partners With Loco2 To Provide Integrated Rail Fares & Booking

Thanks to a recently launched integration with UK-based Loco2Rome2rio users can now search and select European train tickets on the site. Try this new feature by clicking on the Schedules & Book button that is displayed for many train routes such as Paris to Avignon:

We chose to partner with Loco2 because they are clearly leading the pack when it comes to providing simple, straight forward European rail bookings on a single site. Loco2 coverage is excellent in the UK, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Belgium, and Denmark.

Until recently we did not imagine being able to link to a single site providing rail bookings across all of these networks. We’re thrilled to see Loco2 make great progress in turning this into a reality.

It is not perfect yet, however. Tickets by Loco2 for Spanish, German, TGV and many international routes are issued as Print-At-Home e-tickets and can be easily purchased by Rome2rio users from around the globe. Other rail tickets are sent by post to UK addresses only, or must be collected from a station prior to travel.

We’ll continue to work with partners such as Loco2 to improve this customer experience with the goal that anyone, anywhere will soon be able to use Rome2rio to easily purchase a rail, bus or ferry journey — anywhere in the world.
