Good to know when traveling from Amsterdam to Naples

Onboard catering & food

Most of the trains in Europe have restaurant cars open to all passengers, regardless of the fare. What is offered depends on the operator but also during what time you travel. They usually serve hot food, drinks and snacks available for all customers. Always bring a water bottle and some snacks in case of emergency.

Onboard catering during covid-19

Many train operators don't have onboard catering due to the current situation. All Aboard advise you not to consume any food and drinks that are not necessary. If possible - eat and drink when changing trains.

Is there wifi on the train?

There are few things as nice as watching a movie, listening to a good podcast or getting some work done on the train, and fortunately most long distance trains in Europe today offer free wifi onboard. Eurostar, Renfe, SNCF and Deutsche Bahn let you get access to wifi on the majority of their trains. If it's super important to you, the best way to really know if wifi is available is to google the name of the train (that can be found on your ticket) and you'll find out.

For EU residents

Should the wifi connection let you down, as an EU resident, you still have the luxury to take advantage of free roaming in all EU countries, just remember to turn on roaming in your phone's settings. If you are an EU resident traveling through a non-EU country such as Switzerland, the UK, or Norway, it could be a good idea to bring a 4G dongle in your bag, and switch off roaming to avoid hefty bills.

How do I receive my tickets?

Your and your fellow travellers' tickets are sent collected in an e-mail to the contact person entered in checkout. They're either delivered immediately upon purchase or in connection with your departure, but usually they'll arrive within 24 hours. This differs from operator to operator.

Before departure, it's wise to print all tickets on paper and pack in the bag. This is so that there'll never be any problems (with for example the internet connection) when it's time to show the tickets.

Haven't received an email with tickets?

If you've received a booking confirmation email, everything should be in order. If your departure is coming up and you still haven’t received any tickets, please contact us at hi@allaboard.eu and we’ll help you.
