Hello Prechai.

Thanks for your question.

As per your travel plan the best pass I would suggest you for your travel would be the Benelux-France Rail Pass.

The Benelux-France Rail Pass offers you unlimited travel on the national rail networks of Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg and France.

For your travel from London, you would get passholder fares on Eurostar train with your pass.

From Luxemburg to Cologne you can travel as follows :-

- Luxemburg to Liege - Eurocites train - You would get passholder fares.

- Liege to Aachen - Thalys train - You would get passholder fares.

- Aachen to Cologne - Thalys train - You would have to buy point to point tickets.

As fares are dynamic and subject to change, I unfortunately cannot give fare quotations. I request you to check directly on our website.

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 (Passholder 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!!!
