Dear Arvind,

Thanks for the question.

As you are travelling many cities for your travel you can book Eurail 3 cpuntry Pass for Italy France and Switzerland. This pass allows you to travel on regional and domestic trains within the countries listed.

To purchase the pass click "Here".

Keep in mind that seat reservations would be mandatory for all High-Speed, Night, Scenic and Border Crossing trains. But, you will avail pass holder/discounted fares for these journeys with the pass.

In order to book seat reservations, please visit our website.

I checked tickets with the 3 countries pass. After mentioning the pass while booking the following showed up for two travellers:-

Lucerne-Interlaken-Lucerne : INR 16,648/- (Regular Fare no discount)

Lucerne-Venice: Rs 16,627/- (Regular Fare no discount)

If i have to pay for two travellers INR 43,588/- (Three country pass) + INR 16,648/- * INR 16,627/- is lot of money and very expensive. I have still not checked cost between Paris-Lucerne & Venice-Rome as per my itineary mentioned in my previous mail.

Could you tell me where am i going wrong as the prices shown are tooo expensive.
