Customer feedback France-Germany Pass
« Our journey by rail through France and Germany was efficient and comfortable. It's a great way to travel and you really get to see some wonderful scenery along the way. The rail pass is so convenient and makes a holiday more enjoyable. We reserved our seats in first class, and this made it very easy. If you have large suitcases, be aware that you have to carry them onto the train yourself, but most trains had luggage areas to store them in once on the train. »

    "Hadn't realised that in non peak times that bookings on TGV Strassbourg to Paris was so limited. Had to buy full fare ticket even though there were empty seats on the train when we travelled and therefore could not utilise the full cost of the pass. Much easier travelling in Germany!!!! "

    "We found the struggle to get a seat on the train to where we needed to go made the pass quite useless to us and we ended up having to pay for another trip across Switzerland as the staff at French rail stations were incredibly unhelpful, particularly as we did not speak the language and we wasted much time going backwards and forwards to the rail stations to try and get a seat, not something we would purchase in advance again. Having a first class ticket does not guarantee a first class seat when boarding an overcrowded train. "
