Rail Europe Announces Web Only Fares

White Plains, NY, April 16, 2007 - Rail Europe announces commissionable Web-only fares, saving as much as 10% off the prices at the company's call center.

Web-only fares are offered on the company's complete line of railpasses, point-to-point rail tickets and city transport/tour products for travel throughout Europe and the UK, including best sellers like Eurail Passes, France Railpasses, Eurostar tickets, and Paris Visite.

"With Web-only fares, agents have an added incentive to book online - besides earning a commission," said Fabrice Morel, President and CEO of Rail Europe. "They can be assured they're getting our very best price for their clients."

1,000 downloads of customizable brochure

Morel noted that agents have responded enthusiastically to the downloadable brochure function introduced last month on http://agent.raileurope.com , with more than 1,000 downloads in the first few weeks of operation. This function lets agents create a customized brochure, complete with agent's name, address, Web site and phone number appearing on every page.

"Clearly, this customizable brochure function is a valuable selling tool," said Morel. "We are always looking for ways that make it easier for agents to sell European rail."

Agent commission on European rail products starts at 5%for electronic bookings.

Rail Europe is the leading North American distributor of European rail products, offering the most extensive selection of railpasses and point-to-point tickets for individual or group travel.
