Rail Europe to share tech with SilverRail
Rail Europe has announced a new joint partnership across Europe with travel technology company SilverRail to share tech and data capabilities.
The new agreement will see SilverRail provide a connectivity and transaction processing layer to all of Rail Europe’s train operator’s fares and seat inventory via its technology platform, SilverCore.

“This will enable our own resources to leverage their unmatched market expertise andfocus solely on designing the best experience for selling rail, both for travellers and travel intermediaries around the world”.
