I would like to issue a serious warning regarding Rail Europe. I called 3 weeks ago to enquire about a train trip from Munich Airport to Leogang in Austria (3 hour trip) and the person quoted me £66 return per person. He also confirmed 3 times that 12 year old children in Germany had to pay adult fares on the trains - this seemed very strange.
I subsequently called Deutsche Bahn in the UK (German national rail network) who confirmed that all under 14s in Germany travel free of charge when travelling with their parents/grandparents.
Rail Europe were thus trying to rip us by off to the tune of £132 by taking 100% commission. BE WARNED! ALWAYS GO TO THAT COUNTRY'S NATIONAL RAIL WEBSITE.Edited: 9:35 pm, October 12, 2012
