              Good to know when traveling from Stockholm to Rome

              What happens if I miss my connecting train?

              Missed trains connections can happen, but no need to panic. If we plan our trips well, a potential delay is not that big of a problem. Here are a few things to think about:

              Before you travel

              • Plan trips that can handle a bit of delay. If you're switching trains, perhaps to jump on a night train, you should always have extra time so that you don't miss your connection if you're running late.
              • Consider getting additional travel insurance. If a train is canceled or you miss a connection, you might need to get new tickets if you're unlucky. Travel insurances can cover this extra cost.

              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.

              • Always save your tickets. You might need them later.
              • Ask the ticket inspector to validate your tickets as evidence of the delay.
              • When arriving at the next station, ask the station staff what to do next.
              • If you need to buy new tickets, save all receipts so that you can later show them to your travel insurer when making a claim.

              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 on All Aboard.

              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 .

              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.
