It’s easy to get disillusioned with rail travel, especially if you’re a commuter who needs to head to and from a busy place at rush hour. Your experience of travelling by train might consist of trying to keep yourself balanced while standing inches from other passengers, or maybe even sharing a ride with other people’s luggage! But it doesn’t have to be this way. You know that just a few carriages in front of yours is a world of peace, space and comfort. It seems like bliss when you have your head in a fellow-commuter’s armpit, but what do you actually get for the extra money when you travel first class?
Peace and quiet
If you’ve ever wandered into a first-class carriage by accident, you’ll have noticed how peaceful it is. It’s one of the key reasons people choose to travel first class. And if this is what you’re looking for, you’ll find you’re surrounded by like-minded folk. People in these carriages generally want to sleep, admire the view or work. Therefore, the only distraction you might have is from being given your courtesy coffee.
