Reviews & ratings Paris - Zurich
"Very convenient"Heng j.
My wife and I had a wonderful honey moon in European countries. We traveled through Germany, Italy, Switzerland and France by Global Pass, which was really handy. All the trains we abroad were perfectly linked and operated on time. The first class services were very good and the pass also covers some boat tickets as well. The mountain and lake views from Milan to Zurich were fascinating and the bullet train was very comfortable. I may suggest that you'd better to plan your rail trip in advance, e.g. check train timetables and links using "Plan you trip" on RailEuro website.
"all was well until...."Heng j. 06/11/2013
Used the pass to travel from Zurich to Lindau ( switzerland - germany ) After boarding the train the conductor advised us that we have to pay an additional fee because for TWO MINUTES we are travelling through Austria. An additional SFR 42 per person was the cost . I think in the future you should advise purchasers that they should check carefully in case their train strays for a very short distance into a country which is not included in the pass

Very good trip, 6am departure so not many people travelling. We were in 1st class which is worth paying the small amount extra for. The only criticism I would have is that ramps instead of stairs would make getting suitcases onboard a lot easier!!

For overseas travellers, LARGE signs advising to put rail tix into machine before boarding would be helpful. At Paris the ticket office does not open till after 6am so if your trip starts at that time, there are no directions to machines which can print seat allocation. Otherwise, trip was good.

For the first time I organised a trip to Europe and in doing so booked a train trip from Dijon to Zurich, not only did everything run smoothly with the tickets also the train was very comfortable with plenty of space, clean and tidy, with such a incredibly fast train the journey was completed on time. I would highly recommend rail Europe as a go to place for future purchases.
