Good to know when traveling from Oslo to London

What happens if I miss my connecting train?

Missed trains connections are always possible due to delays, cancellations or just bad luck. Here's a few things to think about:

Before you travel

  • Make sure you have enough time to begin with. Check all the connecting trains and give yourself some extra time to make the changes.
  • Make sure that you have a travel insurance that include missed connections due to things out of your own control.

If you've missed your train

International rail travel is protected by the CIV rules - which means you're usually allowed to travel on the next available train free of charge.

  • Save all documentation and tickets, you'll need them later to make a claim.
  • Ask the ticket inspector to validate your tickets as evidence of the delay.
  • When arriving at the next station ask the staff on what to do next.

Long distance train trips

If you have multiple connecting trains and your first train is delayed, your whole journey might be affected. Remember that if you have to buy new tickets or accommodation as an effect of the delay, save all receipts for your travel insurer.

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.

Wondering if there's free wifi available? Find more information here: Is there wifi on the train?

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 within 24 hours. This depends on the operator.

Before departure, it's wise to print out your tickets. This is so that there'll never be any problems (with for example internet connection or a phone without batteries) when it's time to show the tickets. But if you don't worry about that – all tickets received from All Aboard contain a QR code which you can show on the train.

Haven't received an email with tickets?

If you've received a booking confirmation email, everything should be in order.

If it's less than 48h before your departure and you still haven’t received any tickets, please contact us at hi@allaboard.eu and we’ll help you.
