Differences between 1st and 2nd class
Travel in style with Interrail
First class rail travel is irresistible. There is nothing like watching the beautiful and ever-changing European scenery pass by from a quiet and comfortable train compartment, with the comforting sound of the rail carriages gliding smoothly along the tracks in the background.
Perhaps less difficult to visualise are the amenities and services on board. While these vary per country and train, when travelling first class in European trains you can expect more facilities to make your travel experience evenmore pleasant.
