Hello, I'm leaving for Dublin in a week, and I'm having trouble figuring out which Eurail pass I should get. Here's my itinerary:
Fly from SFO to Dublin
Fly from Dublin to London
Eurail from London to Amsterdam
Eurail from Amsterdam to Paris
Eurail from Paris to Rome
all within 3 weeks
This is however, tentative. I do plan on visiting all the aforementioned cities, but I would like a pass that would allow me to visit, say, Munich, if I felt the need. I've read up on the Youth Flexi Pass (I'm 23) and did the itinerary option on RailEurope.com, but I still feel confused. Basically, all I want is a youth pass that allows me to visit any country in Europe within 3 weeks & can match my itinerary. Can anyone recommend such a pass?
Sounds like a cracking trip, sure you'll have a cracking time...
Have you checked out this page... http://www.raileurope.co.uk/default.aspx?tabid=1354
This enabled you to travel between countries in Europe by rail.
Word of warning as well Dublin can be quite expensive, for food, drink etc maybe go off the main trail to get things a little cheaper.
I work in Rail wholesale. If you were looking at travelling in 6+ countries, go a 15 or 21 day youth global consecutive pass, anything less have a look at the three/four/five country pass in second class.
A Eurail pass wont cover the train from London to Paris or London to Brussells, and you will still need to pay for seat reservations on some trains, but you can do that at the station.
But if you do have a Eurail pass, you can get a discount on the Eurostar!
