One Passenger Name on One Ticket for Two Passengers?

When we booked our tickets online, I entered my name (Rachel) and my husband's name (Paul) as passengers. We purchased the tickets under his name. When I received the confirmation and printed our tickets, they clearly state that the ticket is for 2 adult passengers, but they list him as the purchaser and the passenger. Is this one ticket good for both of us? Will my name have to be listed on the ticket to be allowed to travel?

    Hi Rachel,

    In most instances, the names on point-to-point tickets for trains in Europe do not matter. In fact, most tickets and reservations do not even display a passenger name, or else only one name is displayed. If that is the case with regard to the train you purchased tickets for, you will be able to board the requested train without any difficulty, regardless of the name. The names are only important with regard to rail passes and many e-tickets.

    To verify regarding your specific order, you can call us at 1-800-622-8600 or send an email to If you send an email, please include the booking number for your order, as well as your full first and last names.
