Point to point tickets

For anyone travelling between two cities or from the airport to a city centre and back point to point train tickets are probably the best bet. It is cheaper buying tickets this way if you are only going to a couple of incredible places – for example from Barcelona to Valencia on the Spanish AVE and even if you are travelling from one country to another e.g. Paris to Geneva on the TGV Lyria.

If you’re just exploring France on the TGV there is the France Rail Pass, or perhaps you want to see Switzerland with the Swiss Rail Pass. For those discovering the diversity of the British Isles the BritRail Pass gives you 30 days to let loose on the rails.

There are many more passes available including two countries such as Denmark-Germany or Portugal-Spain and regional passes like the Scandinavia Pass or the Balkan FlexiPass – take a look to see which pass suits your itinerary best.
