New Website and Web Shop
The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed that we have completely overhauled our website. We hope you like it and find it more functional than the previous iteration! We can now process credit and debit cards through the site, and of course there is still the option to use Paypal should you wish.
Pre-Order the May Edition Now
In a change to the previous pattern, the Beyond Europe section of the May edition will cover Africa and the Middle East, and not North America. North America will now appear in the June and December editions, swapping with the Africa section. This change will enable us to show the most up to date schedules in the North American region. We would like to remind readers that all of the latest Beyond Europe sections are included in the Summer and Winter editions of the ERT, together with three bonus pages covering South America.
For their Route of the Month section the editors of Hidden Europe magazine feature a shipping route for the first time, namely the Smyril Line service between Hirtshals (Denmark), Tórshavn (Faeroe Islands) and Seydisfjördur (Iceland).
As a bonus this month we are including a special three page feature with more in depth information on the InterRail, Eurail and BritRail passes, together with an overview of other international rail passes that are available.
The May edition costs £15.99 plus postage and packaging and will be dispatched from May 1st.
Pre-Orders for the June and Summer Editions
We are also now taking orders for the June and Summer editions of the ERT.
The June monthly edition features new timetables for many countries valid from mid-June. It also includes the summer British timings which are valid from late-May and new schedules for Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and Baltic States which are valid from the last Sunday in May. The June edition costs £15.99 plus postage and packaging and will be dispatched from June 3rd.
The Summer edition includes all of the updates in the June monthly edition and an extra 32 pages at the front with the full 6-page feature on Rail Passes and detailed Country by Country information on embassies, tourist offices, public transport, telephones, holidays and more. At the back there are an extra 64 pages enabling the seasonal editions to contain all six of the most recent Beyond Europe sections. The Summer edition costs £17.99 plus postage and packaging and will be dispatched from June 3rd.
