Train Travel Abroad
Travelling by rail is a great option in many countries and there are lots of different offers around for those looking to use the train to get to their final holiday destination or even to use instead of flying in the future.
Trains in Europe
The main rail ticket operator for Europe is Rail Europe. They offer many options for travelling to, from and around various countries in Europe by train including Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Spain and Portugal.
Travelling by train in Europe or when you get to your worldwide flight destination is a great way to get around especially if you are travelling to a destination which is a further trek from the airport. For short journeys or journeys to specific hotels and resorts you may find the international taxis and transfers above more helpful as you will be dropped direct to your door.

Taxis around the World
There are various regulations and customs for taxis and transfers across the globe and it differs for each country.
In the UK you can book a taxi in advance or pick one off the street in a dedicated taxi rank area. The taxis should display a license and cannot refuse anyone a ride, regardless of how far they plan on travelling. As a passenger you can ask for estimated costs before getting in the car, but often they will inform you it is on the metre. As a passenger you are expected to pay in cash but some taxi drivers will stop at a cash point if you do not have cash. It is customary that you pay for your journey at the end of your journey and you do not have to leave a tip.
If you are travelling from Heathrow across the pond to the USA you will discover their taxi rules and customs are completely different to that in the UK. For example, Chicago airport taxi drivers expect you to leave an additional tip. On the East Coast of the USA, New York cabs operate various types of taxis but you can identify taxis to “flag down” as they are always yellow or green.
These are just some examples of taxi customs from around the World. Before you travel to any destination you should familiarise yourself with what is expected from you as a taxi passenger.
Most people's pre-travel checklist goes something like this - book your flight, sort out your travel insurance, get the best travel money deal and organise your transport to Heathrow airport. Something which is often forgotten or overlooked is your transport from airport to hotel, resort or final destination once you are abroad.If you have booked a package holiday then it is likely that your tour operator has organised a holiday transfer abroad for you (although you should check this), but if you are travelling independently then this is something that you should ideally book before travelling. Not only will this potentially save you a lot of money, but it will also mean that your onward journey from the airport will be hassle free and uncomplicated.
If this is your first visit, or even if you have been to your holiday destination before, you will often find it hard to know exactly what the laws and best practices are in this unfamiliar territory. Many flights arrive late or very early and you can ensure that you guarantee yourself a place using your chosen transfer method by booking in advance. You can also save a lot of money by preventing yourself from paying an often inflated airport taxi/transfer rate when you land.
Depending on the country and holiday or business destination you are travelling to, there will be a multitude of transfer options available to you to allow you to continue your onward journey and reach your final destination safely, cheaply and in comfort. Most international destinations have forms of public and privately booked transportation methods such as trains, taxis, shuttle transfers, buses, trams international car rental and even helicopter transfers if you are feeling plush! It is worth looking into all the methods listed on this page to ensure you get the best one to suit you. You could even mix and match your transfers to get the best deal and see the most or best parts of your holiday destination.
