Austrian Federal Railway’s OBB Nightjet prepare is a rail line that operates in a single day routes between Austria, Italy, France, and the Netherlands, and might go as quick as 143 miles per hour, in accordance with its web site.

Nightjet trains have common assigned seats, sleeper automobiles with bunks of 4 or six, and couchette automobiles, that are seats that fold out into couches in shared cabins.

Subsequent yr, the rail line is upgrading its in a single day trains, in accordance with a press launch from OBB Nightjet, with new, extra spacious sleeper cabins that can embrace a seating space along with beds, in accordance with the press launch.

I believe that is an ideal factor, particularly as a result of once I traveled in an OBB Nightjet shared sleeper cabin from Austria to Italy, I discovered it to be cramped and uncomfortable once I shared the house with six different individuals. 

And since I additionally realized throughout my Nightjet trip that bunking with strangers is not for me — I would like extra space and privateness to be comfy falling asleep — I am probably the most excited to attempt Nightjet’s forthcoming mini cabins for solo vacationers. These sleeper cabins can be personal, enclosed areas with a storage space, an adjustable folding desk with a mirror, clothes hooks, and a baggage locker, in accordance with the press launch.

Pricing for the brand new lodging shouldn’t be but accessible on-line, however up to now, I paid $477 for a week-long Eurail go and a further $44 for a shared sleeper cabin lodging on OBB Nightjet.
