Rail content consolidator SilverRail Technologies is to distribute tickets for Germany’s Deutsche Bahn train services.
Tickets will be sold through online travel agencies and other travel sellers worldwide.
Deutsche Bahn rail content will be launched through SilverRail’s partnership with GetThere, and other self-booking corporate and leisure travel portals in the near future.
Deutsche Bahn operates about 25,300 passenger trains a day including high-speed ICE services.
Head of international sales Marc Giesen said: “This is an important partnership because SilverRail will grow the passenger base for Deutsche Bahn’s services and in particular, our international train services across the European continent.”
The consolidator’s business development vice president Alain van West added: “Adding an important European rail carrier like Deutsche Bahn to the SilverRail supplier network validates SilverRail’s approach to global distribution and our ability to sell rail tickets anywhere in the world.”
