Railteam

Railteam is an effective alliance of high-speed rail operators.

Railteam is not a new, separate entity in itself.

Rather it is an alliance of the following high-speed rail operators:

  • DB (Germany)
  • SNCF (France)
  • Eurostar (UK, France and Belgium)
  • NS Hispeed (Netherlands)
  • ÖBB (Austria)
  • SBB (Switzerland)
  • SNCB (Belgium

All share the same goal: to make rail the first choice for travel across Europe, with seamless, easy connections.

Whatever high-speed train you travel on, be it an ICE, TGV, Eurostar, Thalys, TGV Lyria or Railjet, you'll find that all these operators share a commitment to high standards of comfort, punctuality and reliability.

What to Expect

Railteam information points

At Railteam hubs (Brussels-Midi/Zuid, Lille Europe, Frankfurt, Cologne, Stuttgart) and major stations (Paris Gare du Nord and Amsterdam), you'll find helpful information points to answer any questions or concerns.

The staff on hand all speak at least English in addition to the language/s of the country concerned.

Hop on the next available train

If the first part of your Railteam journey is delayed, causing you to miss a connection, you can board the next available train without changing your ticket.
(This is provided the connection takes place in one of the Railteam hubs).
