Is there peak and off-peak pricing?

Rail transport companies in Italy do not have an explicit peak and off-peak pricing, but they do have a continuous dynamic pricing based on real time offer and demand. ItaliaRail is an agent of Rail Transport companies in Italy and we cannot modify pricing, so we show the pricing we receive when we send our customers search requests.

ItaliaRail has a special search algorithm that searches and combines lowest possible pricing classes offering the options to our clients to buy either the lowest found fare class or more expensive but also less restrictive fares.
