Ahhh, Stockholm in the summer. Glistening archipelago waters. The iconic City Hall. Hip, waterfront eateries.
The Capital of Scandinavia may well be Europe’s ultimate summer city – the kind of place you want your visit to start well, as soon as humanly possible.
Thankfully, travelers arriving at Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport can easily hop on a sleek Arlanda Express train and find themselves in the city centre in less time than it takes to watch an episode of the hit Scandi TV show Skam.
Summer special offer
And this summer, the fastest route to Stockholm (a mere 20 minutes) just got a whole lot cheaper for anyone travelling together.
From June 22nd through August 27th, you and your travel buddy can purchase two, single-journey fares for a total of only 350 kronor, saving you more than 200 kronor.
Three single-journey tickets will only cost 450 kronor, while groups of four can buy a batch of single-journey tickets for only 550 kronor.
Why bother with hailing a cab or figuring out which bus to take when you can board the Arlanda Express and be taking selfies along the Stockholm waterfront 30 minutes later.
Arlanda Express app
And no need to wait to post that first pic on Instagram – each Arlanda Express train is equipped with free wifi and plenty of charging stations.
You can also make your journey even easier by downloading the Arlanda Express app (for Android or iPhone) and purchasing your tickets in advance online – simply activate the ticket just prior to boarding.
The app also gives you access to timetables and the latest traffic information, as well as a handy map of Arlanda Airport.
Early Bird discount
And even if your visit to Stockholm won’t happen until after summer, you can still save up to 45 percent with the Arlanda Express Early Bird discount when you purchase tickets online or via the app.
Have holiday travel scheduled for October or a business trip coming up in November, for example?
You can save 45 percent on adult, single-journey Arlanda Express tickets when you purchase more than 90 days in advance – meaning you only pay 154 kronor.
And even if travel plans take a bit longer to come together, you can still save 30 percent if you purchase your Arlanda Express tickets at least 30 days in advance.
So whether you’re traveling to or from Stockholm this summer (or in the months ahead), do yourself a favour: take advantage of these limited-time offers by downloading the Arlanda Express app or going to the Arlanda Express homepage so you can make your Stockholm airport transfer cheaper and smoother.
