Buying Italian train tickets online

Jump to last reply

As the 2 Italian train websites are starting to post tickets near my dates in July, let me see if I have everything straight so I do better with the Italian trains than I did with the Venice to Innsbruck tickets bought earlier this month using the Austrian train website where everything went wrong.

1. Trenitalia, the national train system, does not allow foreigners to register for their website.

2. For a foreigner to buy on the Trenitalia website, just choose the ticketless option and show up on the train with your receipt and reservation number, no need to get a ticket from a kiosk or print anything out at home. This is really the only way a foreigner can use the website to buy tickets online, anyway.

3. Trenitalia will sell super economy tickets for the frecce trains with 1 child under 15 traveling free with a paying parent, even at the super economy rate.

4. Italo does not allow a free child with a paying parent, at least with the lowest fares.

5. There are regular sales on both train systems, right now for Rome to Florence Italo is 15.10 and Frecce is 17.00, although the standard super economy fares are more like 18-19.

6. The super economy seats will sell out __________ days/months before the departure date.

7. Registering for the bahn.com website was a complete waste of time because both the Austrian and the Italian train tickets go on sale on their individual websites weeks/months before they show up on bahn.com
