Travel Advice/Travel Tips - Take the direct train
When traveling in Europe you will find several different types of train
service that differ in both speed of trip and cost.
Europe is the home to ultra high-speed trains. These bullets (e.g. TGV and
EuroStar) are quick but relatively expensive.
The next step down from the fastest trains is the direct train or IC (intercity)
that travels at a good clip and makes few stops.
The intercity is usually followed by a train that makes more stops (for example,
the sneltrein in the Netherlands).
Finally, there is the “local” that stops at every station (for example, the
stoptreins in the Netherlands).
If you have a tight schedule, try to make your reservation on the IC,
unless you are willing to spring for the high-speed trains and one
connects with your destination. If your schedule is “relaxed” and you
have plenty of time, any train will do, but we recommend that you stick
with the Intercity.
