- "A great value pass!" Meredith k. 05/10/2013
All our journeys on this pass were great, impeccably on time, with good service on board, and comfortable seats in clean carriages. We had a mix of compartments and open airline style seating, both was good. If you're travelling with others, the seating with 2 seats facing each other would be good, but for a couple like us, any of the options worked well, on some sectors we shared compartments with other passengers and met some friendly and interesting people. We would highly recommend Rail Europe passes to other travellers. We had no problems during the 4 weeks we were catching trains, at the height of the European summer. Value for money Convenience
- "Travel like clockwork" Russell c. 12/09/2013
The trains were clean' comfortable and generally on time. Of the eight trains we booked, though two were cancelled, one replacement arrived at the time table stated time and one was ten minutes late. A huge contrast to Australian rail where hours are the usual replacement currency. The staff were friendly and helpful, despite the fact we only spoke English. The views from the trains were specky and we got a better feel for the countrysid and the geography. It was great to go city Centre to city Centre, no queuing or security scans or other airport stresses. We arrived within 500 m of our hotel each time so we walked. Even then it would have been marginal whether we walked any more than we would have had to getting though the airport terminal. Value for money Convenience
