Family needs advice with night trains

carlos2000 @ 14-01-2009 11:24

i'm planning on an interrail trip with my wife and 3 yo son. we're going to take night trains from copenhagen to paris just before eastern and from paris to florence after eastern. should we book in advance? i really want to have a good trip - travelling with a 3yo is not so flexible and easy going - so i really want to have a 2 bed sleeper for both trips.
any advice for us? which trains? when to book? how much will the supplement be? anything else er should consider?

Hi Carlos ... 🙂

For more information about the night train Copenhagen to Paris use this link:
I just updated the new fares, also for 2-bed-cabins. Your kid should be free!

For the information about Paris to Florence by night train:

I hope this will help you... have fun, Peter 🙂

when should we book? how many days/weeks in advance?

As earlier, as better... 🙂

For the InterRail pass via target=_blank , 2 weeks in advance is enough time ...

For the night train reservations: book them early... it is possible up to 3 months in advance! as especially the days before, during and after Eastern are peak-travel-days... so the night trains might be full when booking to late.

Peter 🙂
