Since we started Loco2 we've wanted to offer tickets for journeys that begin outside of London. We've already been selling tickets for thousands of trains in Europe, including all the most popular high-speed services, but the lack of UK rail was an obvious gap.
By connecting to ATOC, the body that that represents all train operators, we can sell tickets for every train in the United Kingdom. This means that you can combine any UK fare with a Eurostar to Paris, a TGV to Nice or a ICE to Berlin, all in one simple transaction and without the need to visit multiple websites. You can also use Loco2 for booking UK-only trains. You'll find that the prices are exactly the same as those you'll find elsewhere and we don't add a booking fee.
We've worked hard to make sure that booking from the UK into Europe is as seamless as possible. And we've also included 'CIV' fares to help your travel run smoothly too. Here's what Mark Smith, the Man in Seat 61, had to say:
"I give Loco2 top marks for using that well-kept secret for the UK part of the journey, London International (CIV) tickets. These special fares have fewer time restrictions than regular tickets, so if you're connecting with Eurostar, you can often travel in the peak at an off-peak price. They also mean that CIV international conditions of carriage apply to your whole journey, so if a delay or other disruption affects your UK train, no problem, you'll be rebooked on a later Eurostar & onward trains at no extra charge."

This is a huge step towards our goal of making booking a train as easy as booking a flight. We're really grateful for everyone who has supported us on our journey so far. And as always, we welcome any feedback you may have to help us keep improving.
