Good to know when traveling from Copenhagen to Rome

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.

Can I charge my phone on the train?

Most long distance trains in Europe have power sockets available. In some cases, the number of power sockets may be limited in the 2nd class cars. In 1st class, however, it's most common that there are power sockets somewhere around each seat. If it's super important to you, the best way to really know is to google the name of the train (that can be found on your ticket) and you'll find out.

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.
