We will be arriving in Spain in May and will travel through France and then on to the UK returning home in mid June. Is it too soon to buy a rail pass?

We will travel from Barcelona to San Sebastian then on to Paris with one stop along the way which we haven't decided on yet. I can't get the map with the rail on to work and I want to find somewhere that is accessed by train. We will fly from Paris to Glasgow then train back to London, again with a stop along the way. Hope this helps

Hello Lyn,

Thanks for your reply.

As per your Itinerary, it is best to purchase point to point ticket for your travel. You can book and travel as follows:

- Barcelona to San Sebastian - Alvia train.

- San Sebastian to Paris via Hendaye - Regional and TGV train.

- Glasgow to London - Other train.

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!!!

Best Regards,
