Hi!I work in my companies European Headquarters. Train travel is very common around Europe and I expect demand for flights to decrease and demand in trains to increase for short-hall travel as the world progresses towards more sustainable travel and events.Currently, Cvent does not support Train Travel. The Air Request widget is locked to Airport codes only, as are the Air Actuals.We are using a combination of Event Questions for the Train Request component, and Internal Information for 'Train Actuals'. It's not a great workaround and is a different user-experience for registrants as the Air Request widget looks quite different from standard questions.If you facilitate train bookings for your events, how did you go about it? Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions we can try until Cvent enable a native feature or upgrade their Air Request feature?CheersHenk
I can tell you what I've been doing for years now in Classic (I have also asked for a train option I the past). I use the Car Rental option under Travel and change the language in Language Management. For our purposes it was a decent work around because I could set up alerts to be sent to our travel person. However, this option is not yet available in Flex.

Thanks Jayne for the suggestion. I will definitely explore the Rental Car option as a workaround when it's available in FLEX.
I guess you can't use the Rental Car feature for Rental Cars when it's being re-purposed for Trains? I can imagine we might need both in the same template/event.
