Disclaimer...

This is a personal website which started as a hobby and has now become a full time occupation.  I'm not a company or corporation or travel agency, just an individual with knowledge that other travellers may find useful.  The information on this site is provided free of charge, to give you a reasonable idea of train times, fares, and how to buy tickets - hopefully enough to know what's available, plan a trip and contact a booking agency.  I do my best to keep the site updated, but it's simply impossible for one person to keep every time & fare up to date 100% of the time.  Fares are particularly difficult, as I do not generally have access to the fares manuals or reservation systems, only the same internet resources that are available to anyone.  And operators don't tell me when they put their prices up, I have to spot that they've done so, unless a seat61 user helps me by spotting it first!

So treat all information as a guide not gospel, and use the links provided to check it using the official railway & ferry websites.  Always confirm details direct with the operator or ticketing agency.  I can't take responsibility for errors or inaccuracies in the information I provide, but please e-mail me if you find any and I will put them right as soon as I can.

Finally, Affiliate schemes provide commission to support the site and my travel habit (er, I mean research, of course), and buy me a beer or two if you choose to click through to buy a ticket, railpass, hotel, holiday, guidebook or insurance, and so on.  Affiliate schemes include Amazon.co.uk & .com, RailEurope.co.uk, .com, .com.au etc., Deutsche Bahn, NS HiSpeed, Venere.com, Hostelbookers.com, HotelsCombined.com, Booking.com, directline.com, dfds.co.uk, Stena Line, Eurostar.com, Disneyland Europe, Expedia.co.uk, Tripadvisor.com, Chinatripadvisor.com, Real Russia, Great Rail Journeys, Holiday Autos, Columbus Direct,  Brittany Ferries, SeaFrance, Travelbag, Railbookers.com & .com.au, FTS and others.  I also feature banner ads and ads chosen by Google Adsense, but please note that I have relatively little control over exactly what they choose to show!  Other than this, I have no direct connection with the railway, shipping or booking agencies listed on this site, so if you have any difficulties with them, please don't blame me, but let me know, by e-mailing me.  Tell me if an agency gives you particularly good service, too!
