UTRECHT, The Netherlands, 31st March 2014 ‒ Good news for InterRail travellers this spring! From 1st April 2014, Thello becomes an InterRail benefit partner by offering a 25% discount off the standard adult fare to passengers holding an InterRail Global Pass or an InterRail One Country Pass for France or Italy. Pass holders can redeem the InterRail Special Fare from Thello and Trenitalia points of sale.
Thello is a French-Italian railway company born from the partnership between Trenitalia and Transdev, operating night trains between France and Italy on a daily basis. Thello trains connect major European destinations such as Paris, Milan and Venice. Thus, pass holders can benefit from the many advantages of travelling by night train, such as saving time and money, whilst arriving at their destination feeling well rested and ready to explore a new city the next day.
In France, Thello offers departures every evening from Paris and Dijon; in Italy, from Venice, Padova, Vicena, Brescia and Milan. Arriving in the heart of the city, passengers can start their sightseeing tour straight away or continue their journey in Italy by connecting with the highspeed Frecciarossa network, whose trains take just under three hours to cover the distance of 576 kilometres (358 miles) between Milan and Rome.
During the journey, pass holders can take advantage of the Rail Planner App. The successful smartphone application provides travellers with valuable information, such as a European railway timetable, a full list of all InterRail Pass benefits and useful facts about the participating countries. Furthermore, it is possible to find the closest railway station with a handy built-in GPS function. The free Rail Planner App is available for both iOS and Android smartphones and works also offline. Therefore, travellers can avoid expensive roaming costs and enjoy their InterRail trip to the fullest.
The InterRail Global Pass offers train travel throughout 30 European countries from Great Britain to Romania, starting from five days up to one month. This gives the pass holder the freedom to choose and even change their itinerary on the move. The InterRail One Country Pass is the perfect travel companion for exploring a single country.
