SilverRail: we simplify the complex process of rail ticketing
Our team of experienced travel and e-commerce experts developed the SilverRail products to make rail as easy to book as air, anytime and anywhere in the world. We partner with industry suppliers who share our commitment to service and our passion for making travel accessible, affordable, and available.
This is an important era in the travel industry, especially for rail. Rail is experiencing remarkable growth worldwide via new infrastructure, technology, and integration into corporate booking channels. Around the world, we’ve noted a number of macro trends currently driving this growth, including:
- Vast infrastructure investments by both governments and private enterprises
- Impatience with the hassles, delays and costs associated with airline travel
- Industry deregulation, particularly in the EU
- Proven environmental benefits of traveling by rail versus air
- Fiscal reasons for selecting the most economical, efficient and effective means of travel
One key reason that rail is complex is due to its lack of ‘industry-standard’ station codes (such as those of airports), with each rail company utilizing its own internal coding and ticketing processes. At SilverRail, we simplify this process by consolidating passenger rail options from suppliers around the globe into our universal engine. We thereby create a marketplace for suppliers and travel retailers to seamlessly integrate rail as a viable travel option, thus making rail as easy to track, measure, and book as air.
