Utilize the PROMOCODEs provided by Go2RAIL to make your train journey more cost-effective and enjoyable with additional discounts!
To buy a ticket with a Go2RAIL PROMOCODE, please use ONLY the Trenitalia co-branded webpage accessible at this link: www.go2rail.eu/trenitalia.
On ITALIAN routes (e.g., Turin-Naples), you can enjoy a 20% discount on SuperEconomy, SpecialeFrecce, and FrecciaYoung fares for Frecciarossa, Frecciargento, Frecciabianca trains. On FRENCH routes (e.g., Paris-Turin), you can get a 10% discount on the cheapest price offered by Trenitalia S.p.A. at the moment of your purchase.
The Go2RAIL PROMOCODEs can be used to buy tickets on any day of the week, where applicable.
If you select an international route, for example from Bologna (Italy) to Lyon (France), you will receive two PROMOCODEs. One is valid to buy a discounted train ticket in one nation (e.g., Italy: Bologna-Turin) and the other is to buy a ticket in the other involved nation (e.g., France, Turn-Lyon). In this case you would need to buy the two tickets separately.
You can request an unlimited number of Go2RAIL PROMOCODEs, but please use them promptly. A limit of two PROMOCODEs is in place, and it will unlock as you use the discounts to buy train tickets.
The Go2RAIL PROMOCODEs are applicable to buy tickets to travel on Frecciarossa, Frecciargento, and Frecciabianca trains.
You can find more information about the routes these trains cover through the following links: 1. Frecciarossa – (www.trenitalia.com/it/le_frecce/collegamenti_e_servizifrecciarossa.html); 2. Frecciargento (https://www.trenitalia.com/it/le_frecce/collegamenti_e_servizifrecciargento.html); 3. Frecciabianca (www.trenitalia.com/it/le_frecce/collegamenti_e_servizifrecciabianca.html).
We are working on making this possible! Currently, the PROMOCODEs can only be used for Trenitalia's Freccia trains.
Once you have selected your travel preference, click on “CONTINUE”. In the “Passengers” section click on “+ ENTER DISCOUNT COUPON” (in Italian “+ INSERISCI CODICE SCONTO”), and Copy&Paste your PROMOCODE. Note that when traveling on an international route, such as Bologna-Paris, you'll need to follow this procedure for each PROMOCODE received.
The validity extends until approximately August 2024, but you can find the exact expiration date of your PROMO CODE in the same email where you received it.
The Go2RAIL PROMOCODEs can be used by any student, including PhDs, traveling on the covered national or international routes.
Changing your ticket or its date will result in the loss of the Go2RAIL PROMOCODE discount. In such case you would need to request a new Go2RAIL PROMOCODE. Further information can be found in the following link, which can be easily translated into English with an online translator (e.g., Google Translate): https://www.trenitalia.com/it/offerte_e_servizi/buono_sconto.html
If this occurs, we apologize for the inconvenience. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the ending of the student email accounts at your institution (e.g., @studio.unibo.it). Once received, we will add it!
You can get in touch with fellow travelers if you're on an international route (e.g., Bologna-Paris) through two primary types of Telegram groups: 1. A COMMUNITY GROUP that allows you to connect with all students heading to your international destination to share relevant information (e.g., housing, granting opportunities etc.); 2. A TRAVEL GROUP that connects you with students traveling on at least one common train on your same date.
The Go2RAIL Telegram Bot is a tool provided by Go2RAIL to assist and guide you in experiencing shared travel. It offers all the necessary links to connect with other Go2RAILERs and enhance your shared travel experience.
No, neither party will see another's phone number, unless this is permitted by your Telegram privacy settings. Additional information can be found at www.telegram.org/faq.
Yes, you can leave a Telegram group at any time after being sorted in. You can also request the deletion of your data by sending an email to Go2RAIL (email@example.com).
Access the Go2RAIL Telegram Bot through the link provided in the email and interact with it to find where the other Go2RAILERs are seated. Then buy your ticket after activating the “CHOOSE SEATS” option and select your seat according to the information received through the Go2RAIL Telegram Bot.
In the medium term, Go2RAIL is going to prize all students travelling by train with additional PROMOCODEs that are relevant to students’ daily lives (e.g., grocery stores, Decathlon, Flixbus, Booking.com). In turn, this section allows us to gather relevant information to close as soon as possible relevant deals with students’ preferred partners.
No, the PROMOCODE is meant to be used for one-way trips only. For round trips, you are supposed to use multiple PROMOCODEs.
As a team of friends who have traveled across Europe and the world to complete our studies, we acknowledge that we've taken too many flights. This is something we aim to change, and Go2RAIL is our way of doing it!
Go2RAIL is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting trains as a fun, shared, and affordable mode of travel. In line with our goal of making international students' train travelling more affordable, we commit (see Go2RAIL statute) to reinvest the accumulated annual profits for continually reducing train tickets prices with dedicated gift-cards.
