Midnight Trains, a French startup specializing in luxurious sleeper trains, wants European travelers to skip the airport and instead embark on its unique "hotel on rails" experience. The company intends to introduce a more comfortable, headache-free, and environmentally sustainable alternative to air travel.
Every trip on a Midnight Train will be managed through the company's user-friendly app. Like a hotel, bookings will be offered in a variety of 'room' sizes – or in this case, compartments – each suitable for singles, pairs, and family groups. All options will include a bathroom, a bar, and access to various amenities. The company plans to launch its first line of trains throughout Europe in 2024.
As green travel alternatives continue to gain traction globally, it is likely that luxury sleeper trains like those offered by Midnight Trains will become increasingly common.
