Our journey time estimates include an amount of time for transfers, and are generally conservative anyway.
For example: our estimate for Hanover, Germany to Bourges, France is 10 hours and 36 minutes by train. This estimate includes 2 hours and 2 minutes for the 4 transfers and 8 hours and 34 minutes for actual travel time.
Where plans include flights, approximately 2 hours is built-in for airport related activities, including check-in, security, and immigration. If you’re worried about having enough time to make transfers, we strongly recommend visiting the relevant transport operator websites to check schedules and get specific advice.
