    Looking for the cheapest train tickets for your journey? We've got you covered!Check out the suggestions below and discover tips you can use to save on your next train journey.
    Book in advance
    Book in advance
    Most of the railway companies throughout Europe release their tickets approximately three to six months in advance, with many offering lower prices for early bookings. If you know the dates you wish to travel, it may be possible to secure cheaper train tickets from Milan to Rome by booking in advance.
    Split Tickets
    Choose a slower or connecting train
    On certain busier routes, it may be possible to opt for a slower or connecting train. Although it may take slightly longer than high-speed or direct services, you could potentially secure a cheaper fare if you have some extra time to spare. Additionally, you'll have more opportunity to appreciate the scenic views of the countryside!
    Travel Off-Peak
    Be open to flexibility in your travel schedule
    A significant number of train services in Europe are also utilized as commuter services, and as such, many train companies raise ticket prices during "peak hours" (typically from 06:00 to 10:00 and from 15:00 to 19:00 on weekdays). If possible, try to travel outside of peak hours to secure lower-priced tickets.
    Travel Off-Peak
    Use your Railcard
