Capitaine Train Slated to Become Leading Train-Booking Site in Europe...

Jump to last reply

says an article in the Guardian newspaper, being much more user-friendly it says than the SNCF site and others.:

The following is from the article:

Capitaine Train and Loco2

"It's early days but French start-up Capitaine Train has recently secured extra funding and is moving forward in its quest to be the leading train-booking site in Europe. It's already built up a fanbase by being more user-friendly than SNCF (which also has an annoying tendency to automatically redirect UK users to Rail Europe). It is built as a journey planner, however, so you have to enter your proposed trip dates, rather than being able to simply browse reams of timetables. It currently only sells tickets for a limited number of companies (including SNCF), but it could be one to watch. UK-based Loco2.com, who partner with Guardian Trains, is also riding the same wave; both companies have been able to build their services after the EU took action to allow more competition in the European rail market."

Q - What the heck is Guardian Trains - the Guardian is not into booking trains - will Snowden finally be able to take a train out of Britain to Ecuador?

Guardian Trains - I'll have to look into that!
