Loco2.com is a search engine for train tickets for the UK and Europe. This simple, fast booking platform, which doesn’t charge fees to users, uniquely enables the purchase of tickets from anywhere in the UK to thousands of European destinations in a single transaction. For the first time, users can compare and combine tickets from six major European rail operators via an easy-to-use website and app.
Other consumer-friendly features include a booking-alert service that offers customers the best chance of getting the cheapest tickets. And for passengers starting their journey outside London, Loco2 offers “London International CIV” tickets, which means that if a Eurostar connection is missed due to UK rail disruption, customers are eligible to travel on the next available Eurostar at no additional cost.
We have worked with Loco2 for three years, as it has steadily grown in functionality, coverage and influence, spreading the word about this innovative booking platform and its key points of difference. Our work extends beyond reporting the latest news to creating stories and arranging press trips that speak to different themes, such as slow travel, holidays by train, and destinations off the beaten track.
Loco2’s stories have been picked up by national and regional consumer, trade, technology and railway media, in print and online. Stand-out articles that we have secured include a multi-page feature about the musician Tracey Thorn travelling on Europe’s night trains, which appeared in Guardian Weekend.
Kate Andrews, Co-founder of Loco2, says…
“Their expertise and flexibility have been invaluable as we’ve grown, helping us to evolve our strategy as the business takes on new and exciting challenges.”
