Tips for Traveling by Train

Traveling by Train With ever increasing air travel frustrations and higher fuel price, train travel may be the alternative travelers are looking for. Trains offer a relaxed vacation environment and add the romance of traveling by train.

Here are a few tips to consider when traveling by train.

·         Consider taking the train on long trips when you have kids in tow; it can be much more relaxing than driving and a better opportunity to spend quality time talking or playing cards.

  • Plan any train trip ahead of time; prices rise as departure dates near, and deluxe cabins sell out quickly.
  • Make sure you know what time meals are served in the dining car, and arrive early to get a spot. You’ll most likely share a table with other passengers. If you don’t feel like being social or are a picky eater, pack your own food.
  • Do not lose your ticket — some rails will wait to collect them well after you board.
