Good to know when traveling from Stockholm to Munich

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.

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.

Travel insurance

International train journeys in Europe are covered by the CIV protection rules, a set of rules to make it easier to travel cross-boarder with train. Primarily providing compensation for lost baggage and a guarantee of onward transport.

You can find out if your journey is covered by CIV by checking the tickets. "CIV" should then be printed in a corner.

But...

...there are many cases when these rules does not apply. Therefore All Aboard advise you to have a valid travel insurance before going on your trip. It's never a fun thing either to miss a connection or to loose your luggage, we know, therefore it's very useful to have an insurance where you're fully covered.
