Good to know when traveling from Rome to Copenhagen

First and second class

Wouldn’t it be great if there were only a few, standardized, alternatives when choosing class? We agree. However, the train operators themselves choose what they call their different class options, which means they tend to be called things like "Sparpreis", "Super Flex Premium" and sometimes just "Seat". This is not ideal and we are working actively to standardize how ticket options are listed in our service.

Which option you choose to travel with is entirely up to you. The more expensive options usually mean better comfort. If you feel unsure about what applies to each class option, you can check it out on the train operators' websites, or in their terms and conditions.

Seat reservations

Some routes and train operators require that you have a seat reservation with your ticket. If you don't see an option for adding seat reservation while booking, seat reservations are not possible. We always recommend adding a seat reservation if possible, to not risk having to travel standing up. That's not very cozy.

Seat preference

With most tickets comes an opportunity to choose where on the train you'd prefer to sit, where the two most common options are Window and Aisle. Unfortunately, we can't promise that you are able to get a seat according to preference, as it depends entirely on how many free seats there are left on the train. We hope to be able to present a more comprehensive way of choosing seats in the near future, with options such as quiet section and animals allowed.

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.
