Trenitalia 9-Euro Fare Between Rome and Venice is Alive and Well!

Jump to last reply

For those readers who may harbor doubts about the ongoing availability of Trenitalia's 9-Euro SUPER ECONOMY fare between Rome and Venice, rest assured that it is indeed alive and well!

TIPS for finding the 9-Euro fare (or the 19 or 29 Euro fare):

1. Book LONG in advance (up to 120 days, provided that schedules have been uploaded);

2. Look at the fares for ALL trains on any one day: there are 17 Frecciargento trains between Rome and Venice, plus 1 much slower and cheaper Intercity train;

3. Pay close attention to trains departing mid-morning and mid-afternoon;

4. Also check trains bound for (or departing from) VE. MESTRE Station (sometimes lower fares are available compared to Venezia S. Lucia Station);

5. Don't discard the Intercity train outright, as it usually has lower discount fares (and a much lower "BASE" fare) than the Frecciargento;

6. Remember that all discount fares are capacity controlled, and they increase in 10-Euro increments: 9-19-29-39-49 Euros, etc.

7. DISTINGUISH between the SUPER ECONOMY fare (nonrefundable and nonchangeable) and the ECONOMY fare (nonrefundable and changeable by paying the increment to the "BASE" fare);

8. Use the "BASE" fare of 80 Euros (second class, Frecciargento train) as your reference;

9. Bear in mind that second class on the Frecciargento train is fine for most travellers;

10. BEWARE that if you MISS your reserved train holding a discount ticket, you FORFEIT the ticket entirely. In the case of a "BASE" fare ticket, you have ONLY a ONE HOUR GRACE PERIOD to re-book (free of charge) to a later-departing train in case you MISS your reserved train. (There are separate rules for trains missed due to late connections between Trenitalia trains)

11. Be aware that competitor ITALO TRENO will commence service to Venice from Roma TIBURTINA Station on October 27, with 3 high-speed trains per day, at fares which will compete with those of Trenitalia. However, these trains are not yet open for bookings.

PLAN AHEAD AND SAVE MONEY!!! Don't pay the "BASE" fare unless you need to.
