A pleasant trip for you and your vehicle!

The BTE AutoReiseZug preserves not only your peace of mind, but also your vehicle. That’s why it’s so popular with owners of classic cars. Motorcyclists also appreciate the advantages, with no unnecessary mileage and just the scenic tour itself.

BTE AutoReiseZug makes for a comfortable journey in every way

Whether with children or alone, whether as a group or as passengers with reduced mobility, you’ll find just the right option among our comfort classes and services, which all share one thing in common: they’ll ensure you have a pleasant journey.

You settle into your train compartment, with your vehicle and all your luggage securely stowed on the vehicle transport carrier. Spend a relaxing evening with us and let the traffic jams and long tunnel queues simply drift past you during the night.
