How does Global Pass works?

How does global pass with 15 travel days works? Is this valid: Amsterdam > Munich > Berlin > Prague > Vienna > Salzburg > Budapest > Rome > Florence > Siena > Venice > Paris > Barcelona > San Sebastian > Madrid

How do I reserve the bookings? Can I do it online? How long in advance?

For scenic trains like for example, Semmering Bahn, is the boarding station same as the departing station? How can I check the duration for each train?

Hello Zoei,

Thanks for your question.

The Eurail Global Pass offers you unlimited travel on the national rail networks of 24 European countries.

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.

All cross-border trains, night trains, scenic trains and high speed trains will require reservations. However with a Pass the seat reservations will be offered at discounted fares (Pass holder fares)

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on "book a compulsory seat reservation when using your rail pass" & then 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.

In order to book a pass, please visit our website.

Hope this helps!!!

On top of the price for the pass, we need to top up extra for the ticket?

Hello Zoei,

Thanks for your reply.

Despite having a pass reservations are mandatory on high-speed trains, night trains, scenic trains and border crossing trains and would be on an additional cost.
