Recommended Pass/train


I will be travelling to the following countries which I do not have an exact location yet for some countries (is there a map in the site which i can refer to?). Dublin, Ireland will be my first and last stop for the trip.

Estimation time of spending in each country will be a week and the trip start on Nov.

Pls do advice which pass/ticker I should purchase in order to get around these countries. How many days in advance I should make my purchase?

1) Dublin, Ireland

2) London

3) France

4) Amsterdam, Netherlands

5) Germany

6) Switzerland

Hello Jen Yen Khor,

Thanks for your question.

As you are not traveling extensively in Ireland, I suggest you purchase a point-to-point ticket.

For your travel in London, I suggest you purchase a BritRail London Plus Pass.

For your travel in France, Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland, I suggest you purchase a Eurail Select Pass.

With Eurail Select Pass you can travel free on the regional and intercity trains.

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.

Hope this helps!!!
