We’re pleased to announce the availability of on-site bookings for Renfe, the Spanish rail operator, and National Express, Europe’s largest coach operator.
Starting today, Rome2rio users searching for transportation options between hundreds of European destinations will have the ability to book select National Express and Renfe trips without leaving the Rome2rio site. National Express Coaches, National Express West Midlands & Coventry services will be available to book via Rome2rio desktop and mobile web experiences. For customers travelling in Spain, the entire Renfe and AVE intercity rail network will be available for booking via an integration with our partner SilverRail. Bookings for the Italian rail operator Trenitalia will be available on Rome2rio later this week, adding one of Europe’s most important rail networks.
Adding these service alongside our direct booking capability for UK trains and Amtrak trains means travelers now have a single place to plan and book ground transport in the UK, USA and many parts of Europe. National Express operates a fleet of almost 30,000 vehicles, facilitating over 900 million passenger journeys each year, while Spain’s Renfe operates some 12,000km of railway, including the high-speed AVE network. Building direct booking channels into these crucial networks is an important milestone; both RENFE and National Express routes are immensely popular with Rome2rio users.
Rome2rio is now solidly on the path to offer the widest array of bookable transportation of any online service globally. Expect to see more detailed announcements over the coming months, covering the availability of on-site bookings in more and more markets worldwide. Our goal is to make Rome2rio the go-to-place for booking any form of transportation, anywhere in the world. We look forward to having you along on that journey with us.
