TRAINOSE restarts international routes

Are you afraid of airplanes? Do you hate buses? And why lots of people prefer trains even if in most cases airplanes are cheaper and faster?

First of all trains are cheaper for short distance travelling. Secondly railways have stable fares. Trains have the same ticket prices even if there are holidays, weekends etc. With train passengers can handle much more baggage than airplanes. Also most of the times train stations located in the centre of capitals. This saves passengers for taking a TAXI. After all everybody knows that train travelling promises a comfortable and relaxed trip. Finally railways are much more energy efficient than cars, busses and airplanes and much more eco – friendly.

From 19/6 you can travel from Greece to Sofia, and Bucharest with train. This happens because TRAINOSE restarts international train routes.
