Hello Achint,

Thanks for the question.

It is best to purchase Eurail Select Pass 3 countries with Switzerland - France – Italy in it.

To purchase Eurail Select Pass 3 countries click “Here”.

As you will be traveling to Barcelona and Amsterdam as well, you will have to purchase point to point ticket from the boarder station of France. You can use your Pass from Marseille to Perpignan and Perpignan to Paris. You can book and travel as follows:

- Perpignan to Barcelona France-Spain High Speed train.

- Barcelona to Perpignan - France-Spain High Speed train.

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 tickets, please visit our website.

You would need to feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

To purchase Pass seat reservations, kindly follow the above procedure by clicking on “Seat Reservations” tab on the homepage of our website.

Hope this helps!!!
