Train package for the skiing holiday

04/12/2012

Traveling in a quick, comfortable and stress-free way into the skiing holiday – even during the peak travel period? Trains make it possible and moreover they reduce the travelling expenses, which may be quite high including petrol, tolls and new winter tires.

Those, who decide to place themselves in a train together with the whole family and the ski equipment, gain from it in every respect. On the one hand they can enjoy the journey and don’t have to worry about weather, road conditions and traffic jams. At the same time, the kids have a lot of room for playing and thus no time for whining.

On the other hand, with the current package of the German railway line Deutsche Bahn (DB) and Österreichische Bundesbahnen (ÖBB) in Austria the journey into the skiing holiday is also economical. Till the end of the ski season 2012/13 you travel for 39€ from Germany or Austria to Italy, for example to the skiing area Kronplatz. For children under the age of 15 the voyage is even free.

Beyond that the train package by DB and ÖBB offers the following advantages:

  • A free shuttle service is waiting at the destination (eg in Bruneck) and takes the arriving skiers to their accommodation.
  • In order to be mobile also without car, without any additional costs you’ll get the SkiMobileDolomitesCard. With this card you can use ski buses and public transport.
  • Participative ski depots and local ski rentals give 10% discount. So you can leave the old ski equipment at home and try new and always well prepared skis and snowboards.

You only have to arrange your arrival by train with the chosen accommodation (that participates in the campaign) and you can comfortably start out for your skiing holiday!
