Pendolino trains

The new tilt-body Pendolino train fleet enables travelling at 30 to 40% higher speeds, up to 220 km/h, in comparison with conventional trains. Each line section has, however, its own speed limits. The trains are manufactured by Alstom of Italy.

The pressure-tight tilt-body ensures a steady speed maintained even in curves and smooth and quiet travelling also when running at top speeds or in a tunnel.

Frequently asked questions

Do pensioners and students get a discount on the price of a CarTrain package?

Pensioners or students do not get a discount in CarTrain package tickets. The CarTrain package is a fairly cheap product on which additional discounts are not granted.

What benefits do I get from the mobile application?

When using the mobile application downloaded to your mobile you can search timetables and purchase ticket faster. After registering as a Veturi member customers log into the service automatically when opening the application. Purchased tickets are automatically saved in the application's ticket folder and the route can be saved in the calendar. With the application you can easily manage favourite routes and the ticket folder.

Why don't all of the departures to St. Petersburg and Moscow appear immediately in the search results?

There are only a few departures to Russia in a single day, so there is no need to increase the number of search results.

Do tickets bought from other VR sales locations show up in the Tickets folder of a Veturi customer?

The Tickets folder of a Veturi customer shows all tickets that have been bought or reserved while logged on when the customer uses the VR Mobile application. However, this applies only to tickets that are among those which are currently available in the Mobile Shop - not multi tickets or season tickets, for instance.
