Record booking figures for the Urlaubs-Express

The private train operator Train4you has published the 2023 summer programme for its Urlaubs-Express trains and already registered record booking figures in the first 24 hours. Especially on the routes from Hamburg and Düsseldorf to Verona in Italy, the Cologne-based company is registering huge demand. “We see a clear trend towards the climate-friendly transport mode of rail when planning holidays,” says Train4you Managing Director Niko Maedge, “Added to this are the high fuel costs which are causing many customers to look for alternatives. This is where the relaxed overnight train journey with our exclusive direct connections can score.” Already in the 2022 summer season, booking figures reached record levels; many trains were fully booked.
