"travel from Finland to Rome" Annemarie h.
Have been very satisfied with the Eurail Global Pass, which I used to travel around in Germany and from Germany to Finland, Rome and Paris. Would choose to travel with this pass again. Has been a great experience. Thank you. Value for money Convenience
"Undecided" Julie h.
The problem with these passes is that you NEED to travel alot in the timeframe to make it worthwhile. I probably just broke even with how much it cost and how much the actual trains costed. In europe the trains are VERY expensive last minute, so it helps to have the pass. But I was constantly unsure if my pass was valid on each train line. Many of them are private, and the rules change, also it was hard to call ahead to the next country to see if the rail pass was valid or not. In all honestly, MOST train lines DID accept the pass with no issues, but not knowing that until I got to each country was difficult, so I often purchased a ticket in advance just incase. Also hard to tell whether or not you need a reservation and how late you can book one. So yes, can be worthwhile, but if you already know which trains you want to take, it also could be worth individual fares far in advance. Not sure if i'd use again - on one hand, now i know which trains accept it, it would be much easier, but then again you need to be on the move alot. And alot of metros of course didn't count!

"Global Pass" Denis h.
I really loved travelling with Global Pass because I felt like I belonged. I felt so at ease I had to remind myself that I was on the other side of the world. Global Pass made it so easy. I am going back next year and I will not hesitate to get a global pass Value for money Convenience
"Online booking problems" Julie m.
I wouldn't recommend the Global Pass if you are running to a tight schedule, as you really do have to make reservations on top of the expense of the pass. Our experience was poor - I was unable to book 'first class' online for most of our 10 journey's as was told there wouldn't be first class carriages on some sections of our trip. When we got arrived at our trains, there was nearly always a first class carriages. We also were demoted to second class on one of our overnight trips as the AC wasn't working in the carriage. On another leg we couldn't book an overnight sleeper cabin online (even though I was booking months ahead) for another overnight leg, meaning we ended in normal seats overnight between Budapest to Belgrade. We're quite happy to travel in second pass usually, however if you've paid the significant amount extra for the Global Pass, I think you should be entitled to experience what you paid for. The convenience is great as you're often right in the centre of each city. Value for money Convenience
"overall experiance" Barry m.
first trip from barcelona to paris , spain section was great , french section left a lot to be desired , the train was old and rattled all the way , our main problem was with the rail staff in france , gave you the impression they could not care less , in calais no one spoke english and i had to go around asking people if they could help. the english rail people were very helpful but charged the earth to book any passage , mainly paris to luzern , trip was great though. switzerland , germany , austria , the rail people were fantastic , could not be helpful enough , pity it did not continue into italy , the italians were as bad as the french . it sounds like we did not enjoy our trip , but it was great once you found a friendly soul who helped with directions . we are going to do it again , the first experiance was a shock , next time it will be easy , definately use eurorail again Value for money Convenience
"Train trip" Judi c.
It was the best trip ever, I only wish we had trains as good. My husband and his mate thought traveling at 300km, standing at a bar with a beer (without spilling a drop) was the best experience of their lives. Value for money Convenience
"Global Eurail Pass First Class" Barbara j.
We used this 1st Class Pass to travel through France, Germany, Sweden (including a sleeper sector) and Italy. For convenience you cannot beat the trains. They get you right to the heart of the places you want to go to without hours of hanging around. Some trains are better than others in smoothness, but generally the ride is superb. Some trains still have 6-seat cabins which do not appeal to us as much because the views are poorer and they can be elbow-to-elbow. Some trains gave us breakfast or drink/food vouchers, but we could not crack how to know this in advance. Value for money Convenience
"Wonderful Europe Trip" Greg l.
What a wonderful way to travel Europe - Eurail Global Pass. We started in Turkey. They are new to the system and were a bit confused in Selcuk about what to do, but we got our train OK. In Greece we used it to get into Athens from the airport then to Ancient Corinth. These were excellent and went without a hitch. In Italy we used the Pass to visit Rome, Naples, Pompeii, Assisi, Florence, Pisa, Bologna and Venice which were outstanding. The first class compartments and free nibbles were appreciated. From Venice we traveled to Solzberg Austria via the Alps which were spectacular and "alive with the Sound of Music". Then to Vienna where we saw the Boys Choir and Lipizzaner Stallions. Next we caught the train to Munich which was the friendliest city visited. Everyone was ready to offer assistance. Various trains to Zurich via Fussen and the "Fairy tale Castle". Then onto Strasbourg, Cologne and Amsterdam. These were all spectacular, although quite cold and wet, in May. The high speed trains are a fast way to cross the country but trying to take photos was impossible. Everything was a blur. Around Holland we saw Rotterdam and the windmills and lots of beautiful countryside from the trains. Then it was down to Belgium, to Antwerp, Brussels, Brugge and finally Flanders Fields near Ypres. Finally, into Paris which was spectacular and surrounding regions of France like Versailles and Normandy. Our Pass even got us a big discount on the train to London. Value for money Convenience
"Convenient and Quick " Antoinette t.
We decided to go by train Travel as aposed to flying and we are very happy we did. We planned our trip from start to end and followed our schedual around Europe. Trains were mostly on time with only the odd late one, but was easily fixed and re scheduled with no extra costs. With Train tripping we got to enjoy the sights as we went and found that most of the trains were clean, had plenty of leg room (first class) and the service was good. large suit cases can some times be a problem on the trains but mostly they could be accomodated behind the seats. If we were to go again we would definatly choose to travel by train as its convenient, quick and mostly stress free. Enjoy your trip! Value for money Convenience
"Wonderful!" Lindel b.
Our recent trip to Europe was absolutely wonderful! Train travel is the best way to see the passing countryside and watch it change from city to farmland, to magnificent mountain ranges. Our Eurail Global Pass made everything so easy - one ticket did the whole 2 months. Departure and arrival are simple - no checking of bags, and no waiting for luggage at the other end. We had 1st class tickets and reserved our seats beforehand. This made it even easier, and sometimes we even had a whole 6 seat compartment to ourselves. All the trains are fast, efficient and comfortable. And when you arrive you are right there, in the middle of where you want to be! Marvelous! Value for money Convenience
