Partnership with SimpleTrain
We are excited to announce that we have partnered up with Swiss start-up SimpleTrain to provide you with everything you need to make your travel to and from Switzerland as sustainable as possible. SimpleTrain close a gap that currently prevents many from choosing the train to travel in Europe: The services of national and private rail companies rarely extend beyond their own network and there is no general ticketing platform, which makes it impractical and sometimes virtually impossible to cross borders by train.
With SimpleTrain, you simply tell them where and when you want to go to through their website and they will take care of the rest. They will find the most fitting route for you, be it the fastest, cheapest or most comfortable, and organise tickets and reservations. Gone are the days when you spent days looking for that one missing connection and bought tickets separately with every other rail company. Now you just have to turn up on the day of departure and enjoy the journey!
As part of the partnership they offer you a 25% discount on their service fee. Simply enter the code "WUSOC24" as a comment when handing in your booking request. The Website is in German but don’t worry, you can also write your request in English or French and the team at SimpleTrain will help you out.
We appreciate that travel by train is not feasable for every delegation to get to Switzerland, but we encourage anyone to choose trains over planes when possible in order to reduce the impact our sport has on the environment.
