Hi, two of us are travelling to the following places in March 2017 and we are wondering which Eurail Pass to purchase.

1. Does any of the Eurail pass covers all the local trains and buses within the city such as rome? or does it only covers trains that travelled from cities to cities?

2. How do we travel down from London to Amsterdam as the pass do not cover any transport within/from London?

3. What are the trains that would require additional fees even if we travel via Eurail pass? (Would our itinerary require us to take any of the trains mentioned?)

London - Amsterdam

Amsterdam - Bruges

Bruges - Amsterdam

Amsterdam - Berlin

Berlin - Dresden

Dresden - Berlin

Berlin - Munich

Munich - Venice

Venice - Florence

Florence - Rome

Hello Cassandra,

Thanks for the question.

As you are travelling many cities you can purchase the Eurail 4 country Pass for Benelux-Germany-Austria-Italy. As the train from Munich to Venice travels through Austria.

To purchase the pass click "Here".

Keep in mind that seat reservations would be mandatory for all High-Speed, Night, Scenic and Border Crossing trains. But, you will avail pass holder/discounted fares for these journeys with the pass.

In order to book seat reservations, please visit our website.

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.

The pass is only valid for travel from once city to another and not valid on any other transport or for travel within a city.

This pass allows you to travel from London to Brussels on Eurostar train as a passholder discount. However you will need to purchase seat reservation with the pass and the pass should be valid for that day as it will be counted as journey in the pass.

You can book seat reservations as below:

- London to Amsterdam - seat reservation required.

- Amsterdam to Brugge and return is via Brussels - Amsterdam to Brussels return seat reservation required. Brussels to Brugge and return you can travel free with the pass no seat reservation required.

- Amsterdam to Berlin via Hannover - Amsterdam to Hannover seat reservation is required. Hannover to Berlin you can travel free with the pass no seat reservation required.

- Berlin to Dresden, Dresden to Berlin and Berlin to Munich - you can travel free with the pass no seat reservation required.

- Munich to Venice, Venice to Florence and Florence to Rome- seat reservation required.

Hope this helps!

Best Regards,

I tried the website link you gave to book the pass however it says that the website is under maintenance. Would you be able to help us book from your end? If not, when would we be able to book? Will the promotion extends since the booking is unable to facilitate for the past few days?
