Reduced footprint = cheaper
Today we are all concerned about our footprint, so we are trying to reduce it as much as possible.
Governments are looking at (negative) incentives to reduce the CO2 levels caused by travel. That is why they increase the taxes on air travel, making flights more expensive then train.
Specifically in Europe there is a strong tendency to replace short flights connections by traveling by train.
The coverage of high speed rail connections is more then excellent today. Because of this traveling over short distances by train takes less time then by airplane.
And in most cases it is cheaper! So it really is a win-win situation.
Brussels or Antwerp
To board a high speed train you have 2 options:
- Starting in the beautiful railway station of Antwerp to take a train to Brussels South where you can board the international train. This is the ideal choice for experienced travellers.
- Let us take you to Brussels South where you can board the high speed train directly. This is the best choice for less experienced travellers, when you prefer more support from us or when travelling on less convenient times.
