About Halo Travel

About Halo Travel

Halo Travel is an independent online travel agency, specialized in European train tours. At Halo Travel, our mission is to make planning of a trip through Europe easy and fun! We are partners of German Railways (DB) and ACP International and we are authorized resellers of all European train products, including Eurail, Interrail, German Rail pass and Eurostar.

With over 25 years of combined experience in European rail travel and e-commerce, we founded a company to create a service we strongly felt could bring great value to customers: a website that would help, advise and guide customers to easily plan and book a complete, yet customizable, train tour through Europe. We assembled a passionate team of travel experts from 5 different countries and are working very hard to make this happen.

Anyone who has ever tried to book a train trip through another country or continent online, has probably encountered the complexity that comes with it. Searching through hundreds of timetables, bearing in mind the language barrier, trying to book reservations with countless different train operators to get from one country to another. It’s a challenge. A shame, because train travel is so comfortable and an easy way to get around one or multiple countries in Europe. We saw the opportunity to make this process a lot easier by creating a website that informs, helps and advises travelers on booking a train trip through Europe.

And so Halo Travel was born! With over 25 years of combined experience working in the train travel industry, we put our minds together and combined our travel knowledge and passion to create a website that would offer a solution to this online booking challenge. We collected everything we could think of, to make planning a trip to Europe fun and easy. Starting with organizing the best way to get around Europe – the high-speed train.
