The new partnership will see SilverRail provide a connectivity and transaction processing layer to all of Rail Europe’s train operator’s fares and seat inventory via their market leading technology platform – SilverCore. This will enable Rail Europe and Voyages-SNCF.com Technologies – the technology arm of Rail Europe parent company Voyages-SNCF.com – teams to harness their unique knowledge of their customers’ needs and focus on building the best distribution engine and sales interface for all B2C (outside of Europe) and B2B distribution channels.
Rail Europe has been introducing European rail travel to international travellers for over 50 years, offering a one-stop-shop for planning and booking European train travel to customers in more than 45 countries – making Rail Europe the leading global distributor today. This technology partnership will provide Rail Europe a new connectivity layer that gives access to new offerings.
