Hello Anju,

Thanks for the question.

You can purchase Eurail 4 Country Pass for Germany-Switzerland-Italy-Czech Republic. The pass will allow you to travel on regional and domestic trains within the countries mentioned.

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.

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on “Seat Reservations” & 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.

Please click on the “Fare Details” tab to view details regarding the type of fare, type of seat, whether a reservation is included or not and the After Sales Policy.

Hope this helps!!!

Kindly note children below 4 years travel free and need not be added on the pass. The child should be seated on the lap of the adult.

As your pass is only for the 4 countries mentioned you will need to travel from Italy to Czech Republic through Switzerland and Germany. If you wish to travel through Austria you can purchase point to point ticket for your travel.

Hope this helps!!!

Best Regards,

Amar, Rail Europe Travel Expert.
