Things to know

Who can buy a rail pass?

Any person living in a non-European country can use the France - Italy Pass. Please note that residents of Russia and Turkey are not eligible.

Seat reservation

A seat reservation is a guaranteed seat on board a train.

Seat reservations are compulsory for high speed, international and night trains. However, as you will be travelling with a rail pass, you will only have to pay for a small reservation fee, as opposed to the usual standard fare.

Seats are generally available for reservation up to 90 days prior to departure and are limited. Book early to secure your seat!
We are not currently offering online seat reservations for high speed, international and night trains covered by the BritRail passes.You can book your seat reservation directly from train stations once you are in the United Kingdom.

Our tip:
Most regional trains do not require a seat reservation. Just hop on board with a valid rail pass, find a seat and relax as the train takes you to one of the many destinations served.

  • "france"    
    trains puntual, clean,very comfortable, food on board ok, plenty of baggage room, stations easy to navigate, staff helpful. Australia needs trains like these on the East coast no need to fly anymore. Paris -Toulouse return Paris to Milan plus some regional and the metro while in France All good    Value for money  Convenience
  • "A little deceiving"    
    The rail pass was useful in the sense that I believe I saved money buying this. However I didn't realise how expensive it would be reserving seats... which I was told was highly recommended as we may miss out. Apart from the fact that every train we had was delayed in some way I do wish there was a MUCH cheaper set price for reserving, if at all. Our Brit Pass did not charge for reservations.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Go 1st class for flexi-days"    
    1st class for a Eurail pass equals buying a 2nd class ticket individually for a decent distance. I advise getting a flexi-days pass for longer distance days and using the RailEurope site or SNCF/TrenItalia sites for shorter day hops (2nd class) to get value. Over 26 yrs you have to get the 1st class pass anyway. Make sure you make seat reservations for Fast trains (TGV, Eurostar etc.), paying the fee on board costs more. I had trouble getting a seat reservation from Italy to France, do it online at SNCF if you can. Euro 9 is the usual charge for a seat reservation, don't forget to do so, the SNCF service desks at stations I found were also very helpful.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "New to train travel"    
    We knew we had to pre plan as well as we could. It was great to be able to not only buy the France - Italy pass but also pre booking seats and having the tickets and other information in our hands before we left. First class is the best travel option so if you can, travel first class. We also had to travel on regional trains which unfortunately was not included in the scope of the Pass. Full carriages, some standing but it was ok. We gave ourselves time to be familiar with Station layouts and information boards to avoid any rush and subsequent panic and this was the best approach every time. We were fortunate to have seats in a compartment with friendly and interesting people making the trip enjoyable, however avoid using the toilets if you possibly can. The travel was with Trenitalia.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Milan-Venice-MonteCarlo-Avigno"    
    Not easy travelling with luggage. Many stations numerous stairs with no other access to required platform. Destination signage very unclear on several trains. Toilets disgusting on the train- even in 1st class    Value for money  Convenience
