Launching in May 2025, GoVolta will offer a range of budget-friendly routes connecting some of Europe’s most exciting cities. While you won’t be zooming around at high speeds, the slower pace translates to significant savings.

  • Daily service between Amsterdam and Berlin
  • Daily service between Amsterdam and Copenhagen
  • Three times a week service between Amsterdam and Basel (Switzerland)
  • Paris will have to wait a bit longer, with routes postponed to at least 2026. But with these initial offerings, you can easily create exciting itineraries without breaking the bank.

So, how cheap are we talking? Imagine snagging a standard second-class seat for less than €10 (∼S$17.02)! That’s a whopping 70% less than what you might pay for a similar journey on a high-speed train. And to sweeten the deal, GoVolta has even increased the number of budget seats available on each train, going from 55 to 110.

While the slower speeds mean slightly longer travel times (think eight hours for Amsterdam to Berlin compared to Deutsche Bahn‘s 6 hours), the cost savings are undeniable. This is a fantastic option for budget-conscious travellers who want to soak in the scenery and enjoy a slower travel pace.
