How can I travel cheaply between Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and France?

My family and I (3 of us) are travelling to these places in August:

1) Netherlands (Wagneningen, Utrecht, Amsterdam, Delft, The Hague)

2) Belgium (Bruges)

3) Luxembourg (Luxembourg city)

4) France (Paris, Mont Saint Michel)

Would regional pass or one country pass to Benelux + point to point tickets in France be more suitable in my case?

Or are there any alternatives that I can look at?

Thank you in advance!

Hello Gwendolene,

Thanks for your question.

The Eurail Benelux Pass is the ultimate pass to discover Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. All three countries are commonly known as Benelux and are offered as a single destination in your Eurail Pass.

With a Pass you can avail of unlimited travel on the national rail networks of the countries covered by your pass.

Passes can be purchased up to 6 months before your first day of travel. The pass must be validated within 6 months from the original date of issue.

Reservations are mandatory on high-speed trains, night trains, scenic trains and border crossing trains.

With a Pass the seat reservations will be offered at discounted fares (Pass holder fares).

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.

For your travel in France, I suggest you purchase a point-to-point tickets.

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.

Hope this helps!!!
