Train or car in europe?

Jump to last reply

I know this question comes up all the time - and I try to respond based on the make-up of the group traveling and their itinerary. (Although I really prefer road trips and that is how we usually travel - unless doing just two cities with a few days in each.)

But there seem to be a number of people who feel train is the only possible option. And a few who feel car is always best - and some who reco flying - even if the train or car would be only 4 hours or so (so plane is no faster).

My question is - have the train people ever done a road trip in europe - and is their POV based on experience - or perhaps just that they hate driving at all? And for the car or plane people - have they done any travel by train and found problems with it - or just assume that form of travel is always better.

(Sorry - but this is based on a recent post where someone reco'd flying versus a 2.5 hour train trip.)
