Hello Everyone!! My gal and I are going to Germany, France, Spain, Switzerland, Austria, Hungry, and Czech Republic from 5/28 to 6/22. Due to this super tight schedule we'll need to book several night trains during this trip. But most of websites I went to require $20 something just for the reservation request even with Eurorail pass. Do you know any websites offer reservation service and cost much less than that?? The FIFA World Cup is in Germany this year, do you know any travel difficulties we might encounter due to this special event?? Thank you very much!!

I'm by no means an expert, but I'm pretty sure you won't be able to avoid reservation fees, even for a basic couchettes.

But look at it another way, you would be spending the same amount on hostel accomodation anyway. Just not as comfortable.

Thanks for your reply! Do you know how much cheaper would it be if we do reservation at Europe? I am just afraid most of night trains will be booked when we get there.....

If you do it in person at the train station while in Suisse the reservation fee is 5CHF.

Sounds like a whirl wind of a trip mate.
