Select Italy (http://selectitaly.com) is proud to be able to offer a wider choice to travel by rail in Italy, becoming an appointed agent for both Italo and Trenitalia. Customers can now easily purchase all the routes of the two major Italian train brands at Selectitaly.com.
Select Italy provides train tickets and seat reservations on all trains throughout the Italian rail network, offering the most competitive prices and the most comprehensive selection of train tickets available. Train travel in Italy is a popular option because of its comfort and affordability, especially when compared to alternatives such as car and plane. Trenitalia was formerly the only choice to travel by train in Italy but over the past few years, the privately owned Italo arose, becoming Trenitalia’s first competitor. Furthermore, in addition to brand of rail, there are also different types of trains from which passengers can choose, depending their needs. Italo offers only high-speed trains, traveling between the major Italian cities, whereas Trenitalia has Intercity, regional and high-speed trains - known as the Frecce (Frecciarossa, Frecciargento and Frecciabianca) - covering almost all the peninsula’s areas. While Trenitalia departs from all the stations in Italy, Italo only departs from the highly-traveled segments of Naples, Florence, Venice, Bologna, Rome and Milan. Trenitalia has first and second class while Italo has Club, Prima, and Smart.
Select Italy’s train booking interface is clear and simple. The ticket reservation can be rapidly and safely completed online upon entering number of people and date of travel, departure and arrival cities, and departure time. Tickets can be booked anytime, however, they cannot be confirmed more than 120 days before the departure date.
“Many customers want to know the difference between Italo and Trenitalia. One is not necessarily better than the other, but they are different and the choice should relapse to the one that is more suitable for the traveler”, says Justin Anderson, Manager of Operations & Client Services. ”Italo is a modern bullet train service, with larger train cars, convenient for travelers with luggage, but Trenitalia departs from all the stations and is increasing levels of service and comfort to keep up with the competition”.
