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. For more useful tips on stuff to bring, see: The perfect way to pack your bag before a train trip.
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 email@example.com and we’ll help you.
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.
Special luggage allowance
A great thing with traveling by train is that there are no extra fees for bringing all you luggage. But a rule to have in mind is that the bags you bring on board should be able to be carried by one single person.
Usually there are luggage racks above the seats and more storage in dedicated places on the train. The standard dimensions of the luggage racks are 70 x 50 cm.
You can bring things like
- Pushchairs and strollers
- Folding bikes, scooters
- Sports equipment (e.g. skis, surfboards)
Can I bring my bike?
There are some operators that allow you to bring your regular bike. Some trains do allow this off peak hours and you might need a separate reservation. Unfortunately we're not able to sell these at All Aboard, yet.
