Good to know when traveling from Rome to London
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.
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.
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.
