Hi

My and my girlfriend plan on going travelling in August up until the end of October and i was wandering if any of you lovely people could help me answer a few questions??

  • WE have about £3000 each, will that be enough (roughly)??
  • What is the best sized backpack to take??
  • We are purchasing an intra rail card for the first month and then seeing how it goes!! What happens if we want to buy one when we get to Germany for example, can we buy them from there, or do we have to get them off the internet and have them delivered somewhere?
  • Are there any discount cards available??
  • Any other useful hints and tips would be appreciated

Thankyou for your help

Scott

You can get an intra rail card when you arrive in Germany. You may check out the discount information online because I remember there`re several kinds of cards to be choosen, eg. for two people, for 14 people, for people under 26 years old...
