I've mentioned Loco2.com in this blog before. I find it simply the easiest way to purchase train tickets in the U.K. and Europe. It's intuitive, all in English, and costs no more than if you were to book the tickets at a train station or on another online platform. Plus, if you reserve a ticket for a train that requires a reservation, Loco2 automatically reserves your seat. However, in November, Loco2 is becoming part of Rail Europe. I'm hoping that means we will still enjoy the same simplicity and reliability of the Loco2 platform. If you get to use it before I do, please let me know what you think.
(As a side note, I've been neglecting this blog this summer while I've been recovering from surgery. However, I'm resuming all my activities now, so I plan to keep the blog more up-to-date.)
