Thello

Seating Options

A popular, economical and practical choice on the Thello train is often the couchette. A couchette is an accommodation that converts from seats to beds for nighttime travel, and back to seats for daytime travel. Fully air-conditioned, the couchette cars are in 4- or 6-bed configurations. Beds can be booked individually or in groups. Each bed has a pillow, sheets and blankets with restrooms located at the end of the car. You will be expected to sleep in your day clothes, which frankly works out great considering you’ll arrive rested and ready to take on the new, waiting adventures.

Meals & Concessions

When you’re on an overnight train, you rest better with a full belly. For those traveling by sleeping car, two seatings may be offered. The attendant will collect your chosen reservation; otherwise you can simply come to the dining car where you will be seated according to availability. You’ll enjoy a “welcome drink” (which is your choice of orange juice or champagne) and plentiful à la carte choices available for purchase. Prefer less formality? There’s always the bar car for fast, casual service. Pizza, panini and sweet and savory light dishes are the order of the day here, as well as hot and cold beverages. Included in the price of your ticket and served in the dining car - breakfast includes coffee/tea, orange juice, and delights such as croissants and apple compote. Simply show your voucher.

On Board Services

On board services include a helpful attendant setting up your couchettes for the evening, and collecting your passports and tickets for customs. With wake-up service you’re gently woken at least 30 minutes before the train's arrival at your destination. Your documents are returned and a complimentary bottle of water is provided.
