16. Pets

Traveling with pets is referred to the B-wagon. Animals should be on the floor.

17. Trolleys

Our trains were built in 1990-91. The interior of the train is from 2002 and originally developed for commuter traffic. This is an important explanation for our low prices. The floor is high and it is a few steps up the train, which is good to be aware of when traveling with a stroller or wheelchair. There is a toilet in the B-wagon. The space in the toilet is limited and does not allow a wheelchair to be taken. The trains have a good heating system and fan ventilation. Air conditioning is missing, but many windows are possible to open.

18. Right of withdrawal

When buying travel, no right of withdrawal applies.
