Tourist agencies, Perfect Tour and Aerotravel, are the local dealers for train tickets of the Rail Europe trader. This company represents 35 rail companies around Europe, and sold last year 900 tickets for the international trains, like TGV or Eurostar, total value of 60000 euro.

On the other hand, the two agencies, sold together less than 200 tickets, for the state company CFR.

“Last year, we have been sold 600 tickets in all, for the high-speed trains in Europe, total value of 22000 euro. From this amount, the agency took almost 10%”, declared Sorin Văduvoiu, general manager at Perfect Tour agency, which signed a partnership with Rail Europe, at the end of 2009.

If untill 2010, CFR sold train tickets only in their train stations or in travel agencies, starting last year, the rail transporter improved the distribution system of train tickets and signed contracts with over 100 tourism agencies, who becamed authorised vendors of the tickets.
