Overnight train travel is having something of a renaissance as concerns mount over the impact of passenger flights on the climate crisis. Here are some of the best sleeper trains you can use to get around Europe while reducing your impact on the planet.


In the United Kingdom, try the Night Riviera service from London to Penzance in Cornwall. Operator Great Western Railways refurbished the sleeper cars in 2018, and the new look is great.


Another U.K. route is the Caledonian sleeper from London to various destinations in Scotland, including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Aberdeen, Fort William, Perth and Aviemore. These cars have also had a recent upgrade, making the journey far more comfortable than a plane.


On the continent, why not try the Trenhotel Lusitania between the Spanish capital of Madrid and its Portuguese counterpart, Lisbon? Alternatively, you can make the journey from Paris to Rome on the overnight Thello sleeper train.


Further east, why not check out the Nightjet services linking Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Italy, with various destinations connected by overnight services? EuroNight also runs a number of services in Eastern Europe, including the Ister from Budapest to Bucharest, the Lisinski from Austria to Slovenia and the Kalman Imre from Munich to Budapest.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
