Rail Europe vs Trenitalia

Jump to last reply

I will need to get train tickets from Rome to Venice and then from Venice to Florence for mid June. These dates are still not posted on Trenitalia. I'm looking for 6/16/13 for the Rome to Venice and then 6/18/13 from Venice to Florence. However, when I checked today the dates showed up on Rail Europe. Why would the tickets be available to purchase on one site but not the other?

Unless I'm reading the prices incorrectly, when I put in dates that are available, say June 2nd, as a comparison, the Rail Europe prices are significantly more than what the Trenitalia tickets would be for the same tickets. Is that possible? For example, I am looking for 4 tickets (3 adult 1 child) from Rome to Venice and I come up with $468 USD on Rail Europe, but on Trenitalia I get Super Economy for a total price for four tickets of 137 Euros which I would estimate to be around $180 USD. Even the Economy tickets are 172 Euros which is still less than $225 USD.

So, given that the prices, if I'm reading this correctly, are so much more on Rail Europe, I suppose it makes sense to wait until the tickets are released on Trenitalia - but I suppose my question then would be does anyone know why they'd be available on one site but not the other?
