• Together with the purchase of any pass you will receive:

    • FREE Eurail Traveler’s Guide containing a general map of Europe, and

    • a Timetable with the most suitable connections for the major tracks

  • For a short trip it may be wise NOT to use your Flexi Pass but to buy a regular ticket so as to save the flexiday for a longer trip

  • the pass does NOT include reservation costs. Some of the trains require reservation
  • Many of the long distance trains have buffet cars or refreshment bars. Most of the time only accept either
    • the country’s own currency or
    • that of a neighboring country or
    • credit cards (more and more accepted in Europe)
  • Should you in any way meet with any problems with your pass, please consult one of the Eurail Aidoffices. All the capitals in the member countries will definitely have an Aidoffice, not infrequently these are to be found in other towns too
  • Not all of the trains can boast of 1st-class accommodation. Night trains often do not have 1st-class seating capacity or no seating capacity at all
  • Don’t only check your pass validity for your country of destination but also for the countries you might travel through
  • It should be obvious that a 1st-class pass entitles you to 2nd-class travel. Should you want to travel 1st-class with a 2nd-class pass an ADDITIONAL charge for the difference between 1st-class and 2nd-class has to be paid
  • Too much luggage is a DRAG.
  • More and more European airports have train connections with the nearest towns
  • Should you use a CROSS BORDER train, there may be customs formalities. Always MAKE SURE you have your identification papers ready
  • Prior to your departure either for Europe or for countries of destination or countries you will be traveling through CHECK whether a VISA is required. You can make enquiries either at the embassy or the consulate in your home country
  • For some connections in Europe trains make use of ferry crossings. This holds good for the connections:
    • Puttgarden (Germany) – Rødby (Denmark)
    • Saßnitz (Germany) – Trelleborg (Sweden)
      Eurail Passes and Eurailticket not valid on the nightboat
    • Villa San Giovanni – Messina ( mainland of Italy to Sicily)
