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

How many ticket types can be selected simultaneously?

Three different ticket types can be selected at one time and in total a maximum of 10 passengers.

I travel with my small child in a sleeping car and I'm afraid the child will fall from the berth. What do I do?

The lower (blue sleeping cars) or lower and middle berths (double decker sleeping cars) can be equipped with a safety net so that the child does not fall down from the berth. You can ask for a safety net when purchasing tickets from station ticket offices or by calling VR Customer Care, tel. 0600 41 900.

Are multi-ticket seat bookings shown in My information?

Multi-ticket seat bookings are not shown in My information. Customers receive an e-mail message when booking seats. 

Can I purchase a ticket for my bicycle for a long-distance train?

Bicycle transport on InterCity trains must always be paid (€5) before the trip because of the limited number of bicycle transport spaces. You can take bicycles directly to the luggage van of blue trains and pay the bicycle transport charge to the conductor. However, groups must agree on bicycle transport beforehand.
