          Good to know when traveling from Stockholm to Zermatt

          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.

          Onboard catering during covid-19

          Many train operators don't have onboard catering due to the current situation. And face masks are required on many trains so if possible – eat and drink before you hop on the train.

          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.

          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.
