Good to know when traveling from Stockholm to Paris

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.

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.

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.
