Klook, the Hong Kong based tour and experiences booking app which has been making waves throughout Asia for the last 18 months, has entered into a new relationship with Rail Europe, bound to cause more than a few ripples, as the company seeks to increase its presence in the region.
As of late last year, visitors to the Klook platform have been presented with a dedicated Europe Rail landing page, enabling them to purchase A-to-B train tickets and products such as the Swiss Travel Pass, Eurail Pass, BritRail Pass, and German Rail Pass, which open up the continent’s rail links for exploration of the Old World.
Conversely, Rail Europe can now reach Klook users in more than 100 markets around the world.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Rail Europe to further expand Klook’s services in European destinations and develop our new rail product offering. This partnership, and the extensive services it provides to our customers, will further solidify our standing as one of the world’s leading in-destination platforms with rail being a key pillar,” said Eric Gnock Fah, Klook’s COO and co-founder.
“Seeing a tremendous success of Klook’s rail experiences in Japan, Korea, and Taiwan, we are excited to pioneer technological innovations in European rail services. These efforts reinforce our mission as a one-stop booking platform for travellers to discover and book in-destination experiences of all kinds.”
“A huge boon for Rail Europe”
Klook’s platforms support both e-tickets for users worldwide and physical tickets (via free mail delivery) to close to 20 markets.
“Our new partnership with Klook is a huge boon for Rail Europe,” said Dâu-Khôi Nguyen, president and CEO of Rail Europe SAS. “As a pioneer in the online travel and activities booking sector, Klook serves modern travellers around the world, covering over eight languages and 41 currencies. As a growing number of travellers seek more convenient, on-the-spot booking options, we believe Klook’s innovative mobile services will make the beautiful train journeys of Europe more accessible than ever.”
