I'm planning on taking a backpacking trip across a few countries in Europe soon. I'm a little confused about the Eurail Selectpass options. For example, I plan on travelling from France to the Netherlands, to Germany, to Switzerland, to Italy, and then back to France again. With the 4-country, 5-travel day option, am I able to go from Italy to France in 1 trip-day?
Sorry if my brain isn't working
It is a little confusing at first but you'll figure out the whole railpass thing.
I think your gonna have to get a five country pass since you'll be travelling in five. You can ride anywhere as many times as you want in those countries in a one day period. If you don't ride anywhere in any given day it doesn't count as one of your 5 days. You also might try checking to see if it would be cheaper to get less countries or less days, by purchasing short rides at the normal price.
Hope this helps.
Enjoy your trip!!
