A New Night Train Network Is To Fully Connect Over 200 European Cities
The climate crisis and rising fuel prices have caused particular concern in society, with governments looking for sustainable and practical solutions.
In this direction, the Green party in Germany presented an innovative project: A trans-European night train network, the Euro Night Sprinter, which will be powered by renewable energy sources and will consist of 40 international long-distance lines. It aims to connect more than 200 cities and towns across Europe by 2030, from Lisbon in the west to Moscow in the east and from Helsinki in the north to Malaga in the south. This would favor journeys of a few hours by train rather than by air, since aviation produces almost 14 percent of emissions.

Passengers returning to the U.S. by air from any international destination must have a valid passport, and may be denied boarding by the airline if the passport is damaged, mutilated, or has excessive wear. A “Passport Card” is not acceptable. If your name on your passport (or for non-U.S. citizens, valid travel documents) does not match your name on your travel vouchers/ tickets, you will not be allowed to travel.

|Many agents specialize in a particular niche and are very knowledgeable about a specific destination. Whether you’re interested in an all-inclusive package, a cruise, or family-friendly destinations or destination wedding and honeymoon look for an agent who can offer you tips and advice, spends a lot of time getting to know you and asks the right questions.
A good and dedicated travel agent will be there at your disposal. They want your repeat business and they want to keep you as a client. They’ll spend time tying up any loose ends and making sure you’re satisfied with all the options you’ve chosen.
Make sure you read the fine print. A lot of times deals seem too good to be true — and a lot of the times they are. No one wants to be suckered out of the cash they’ve worked so hard for.|
