Everything you need to know about traveling by train
Traveling by train can be a great method of transport, for a number of reasons:
The price of traveling by train is often relatively low: it is often one of the cheaper options and you can compare fares with liligo.com's search engine feature to make sure you get the best price for your trip!
When traveling by train, the limits on the amount of baggage you can take are generous to non existent. As a result, there's no need to worry about the weight of your luggage as those extra pounds are usually not a problem!
Traveling by train can also offer much more flexibility: you can often show up at the train station and book a ticket for the same day (although it may be more expensive to do so)!
Compared with catching a flight, traveling by train can be much simpler. There's no need to go through the process of checking your bags or baggage claim on the other end for example, simply get on the train and go!
Aside from the more practical reasons, traveling by train can be an experience in itself! The charm of a train journey is not just a myth: traveling overland means you can see much more of the country in which you're traveling through your train window, and the views can be stunning!

Making your train reservations early means you're more likely to grab the best deals. Booking train tickets in advance is often the cheaper option. Book as early as possible to give yourself the best chance of grabbing a travel bargain.
If you're planning a round trip, check the prices for two one way tickets as well. Buying tickets separately can be cheaper, saving you money on your journey!
Think about where you want to sit, and choose your seats wisely. Sitting next to the window will give you the chance to check out the landscape around you, and take any photos you might want to take. On the other hand the aisle seat offers more leg room to stretch out, and more freedom to get up and take a walk around.
Bring snacks with you. Some train services have on board food services, however there are many which do not. If you purchase food before you travel you'll have more choice and it's likely to be cheaper as well.
