How does it benefit assistants?

This website is incredibly useful for assistants that have been asked to book train tickets in a part of the world that is unfamiliar. There is so much information and detail, it really is an incredibly useful resource for anyone booking business travel. It is also particularly useful for assistants that have an environmentally friendly boss.

Why is it Practically Perfect PA’s technology of the week?

I used this website a few years ago to get myself around three Eastern European countries in one weekend via trains. The information I found on the website was so useful that I have used it ever since for my own personal travel plans and when booking business travel for my Executives. I like that the website not only gives you the various routes but also provides detailed information on the trains, if there are over night options and how to book the tickets.
