Trains are even more comfortable, a lot more enjoyable, and allows an environmentally-friendly way to travel than setting your foot on a plane. High-speed trains have their benefits as they run to city centres and departs from them. Every passenger is happy to save on baggage fees (as trains don’t include ones), on airport taxes (as this is train, obviously). There are no seatbelt signs, no 2-hour check-ins, infants go free. You are able to bring in your favourite drinks. Also, a beautiful landscapes are included. Couldn’t ask for more!

Overnight options for trains from London to Vienna
