A search platform that compares and combines trains, bus and flights has expanded into Italy as its seventh European country.
New deals have been forged by GoEuro with several bus companies while the company claims to be the first to partner with both Italian train operators.
Italy joins Germany, UK, Spain, Luxembourg, Belgium and Holland, adding a further 38 airports, 6,663 train stations, and 1,082 bus stations – bringing the total number of possible journey destinations to 32,959.
GoEuro, established less than 18 months ago, compiles all possible journey options to a required destination in one search, displaying available flights, trains and bus connections in a user’s native language and currency.
Combinations are based on price, journey duration and convenience, irrespective of whether the final destination is a large city, small town or village.
Naren Shaam, chief executive, said: “Italy not only delivers us great bus and rail partners, it gives our customers expanded access to transportation in one of the greatest destinations in Europe.
“Italy is ranked fifth in the world’s top international tourism destinations by the World Tourism Organisation, and visitors will be able to make the most of the excellent transport links available to them.
“Italy has wisely invested in developing a strong rail system; GoEuro will help them achieve even greater international recognition and more customers by connecting tourists with travel options that they might not otherwise have explored.”
