InterCity Trains

Rail

Overview

Countries Served:

The InterCity (often abbreviated to IC) name is often applied to long-distance national and international rail services across Europe. As a result, there is no single operator of IC services, but rather the term is used to describe the type of service and ensures a minimum standard of speed and quality.

Accommodation

InterCity services generally offer both first and second classes of accommodation, with food and drink often available in buffet carriages or via a trolley service.

Smoking is generally not permitted on IC services in Europe.

Luggage & Facilities

Luggage restrictions on IC services are generally much less stringent than airlines operating on similar routes. Passengers are usually permitted to carry two items of luggage with them, with different operators enforcing different restrictions with regards to travelling with pets or bulky items.
