Make sure your wallet and purse is out of sight and find out if facilities like lockers are available for your belongings should you decide to catch up on sleep whilst you travel. Don’t hesitate to consult staff if you have a concern about your safety or security and use help points and alarms if you need to. Identifying who you need to speak to in an emergency is one of the main precautions to take on a night train.
A large number of people are still embarking on lengthy journeys at night. Taking the night train can be incredibly adventurous and relaxing and means you can spend daylight hours sightseeing or enjoying other activities rather than travelling. It’s a good idea to use a sleeper compartment of couchette if these facilities are available so you can sleep in comfort and hopefully enjoy a better standard of privacy. If noise is likely to keep you awake and you are determined to sleep, ear plugs could be incredibly useful.
