Railpass or point to point ticket

Hi,

We are travelling (3 adults) from London-Paris-Interlaken-Amsterdam-Brussels-London this April and we are staying 2 nights on each Schengen area. I am indecisive if we are going to buy a rail pass or point to point train ticket. Do you have any thoughts? Thank you.

Hello Carolyn,

Thanks for the question.

As per your Itinerary you can purchase Eurail Select Pass 3 countries with Benelux, Switzerland, France.

To purchase the Pass click "Here".

London to Paris and return passholder fares are available with Eurail Pass including France. Passholder fares are not available for Eurail France-Italy Pass.

There are also special Eurail pass holder fares with valid pass including Belgium on the Eurostar high speed trains that link London to Brussels and vice versa.

Hence you will receive Passholder fares from London to Paris and Brussels to London for which you will need to purchase seat reservations. Please note, 1 day will be counted from the Pass.

A travel day is from 12:00 am to 23:59 pm during which you can take as many trips you wish.

Keep in mind that seat reservations would be mandatory for all High-Speed, Night, Scenic and Border Crossing trains. But, you will receive pass holder/discounted fares for these journeys with the pass. With a Pass you can travel on regional/intercity trains within a country.

Kindly note that pass seats can be reserved by clicking on "I have a rail Pass" on the home page of our website under "Book Train tickets" & then select the name of the pass and 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". Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares.

Hope this helps!!!

Kind Regards,
