World Travel’s international rail department was established about forty years ago to
assist travellers from South Africa with their international rail bookings in Europe
and the USA.
At the time, European railway authorities became aware that World Travel staff had exceptionally
extensive knowledge of railway travel and, as a result, appointed the company as their South African representative.
In the years that followed, World Travel has assisted hundreds of thousands of South African travellers in the planning
of their international rail itineraries. In doing so, the consultants in the international rail department have
developed their specialist knowledge further and World Travel is now the acknowledged local market leader in
the sales of international rail products.
World Travel has a very comprehensive portfolio of international rail products that include Eurail, Eurostar,
all the European national railways, Amtrak in the USA, VIA Rail Canada, and Swiss rail tours.
The international rail consultants at World Travel have real time access to rail inventory through
the Euronet system of Rail Europe. This enables them to confirm, cost and issue tickets for most European trains on the spot.
