Train from Arlanda - separate tickets?
Save

Flying into the northern Arlanda terminal on Norwegian and train down to Norrköping. Should I buy Arlanda Express tickets along with SJ tickets from Stockholm Central to Norrköping or purchase them separately? Is it less expensive to purchase the Arlanda Express tickets either on their website (from the USA) or in person at the station ... or is it less expensive as a package through SJ? (Any tips about the timing of the change of trains in Stockholm?)

SJ does not sell Arlanda Express tickets. They are competing companies. Check SJ homepage for tickets from Arlanda C,there actually are some direct connections.

Ditto the initial response, competing. Check the SJ website or download the app for info on the trains as there are some through ones so you wouldn't have to change at Stockholm unless you wanted to.

As far as timing, Arlanda Exp gets you downtown fast (but SJ not far behind). Can purchase tickets at the kiosks in the terminal. Not much issue for time between trains, other than Sundays; remember this is Europe and train travel is much better than in the US. Easy terminal to navigate. Sometimes you can have cross platform connections from the Arlanda Express, lots of food choices next to the tracks.

SJ do sell Arlanda Express tickets. You will pay a very small fee for that, like $1 or so. But you won't get any Arlanda Express discounts. So if there is a discount for you it's better to book two separate tickets. Check this thread about discounts: https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g189852-i233-k10379719-Arlanda_Express-Stockholm.html

Well you learn everyday. There is always a risk in not verifying things, fortunately there is mostly someone around who has the facts.
