Eurail Passes vs. Point-to-Point:
Point-to-Point travel and Eurail Pass
travel are both valid options for exploring Europe. Each has its own benefits.
Point-to-point tickets are good for short distance travel, such as travel from
city to city within a country. They are also a good value if you plan to restrict
your travel and are only going to one or two places. The drawbacks come in the
form of ticket lines, local currencies, languages and potentially higher prices. In general, passes are a
good value if you plan to travel extensively throughout one or multiple countries,
or if you plan to cover long distances.
Passes are a good value if you plan to travel extensively throughout one or
several countries, or if you plan to cover long distances. They provide access
for most rail routes and allow you hassle-free travel by not having to wait
in lines at the train station to get tickets. You also get help from any of
the Eurail Aid offices, as well as theft or loss security if you choose Pass
Protection. In some cases you will still have to make reservations or pay supplements,
but most routes allow for unlimited pass use without having to pay an extra
fee. Use our Pass Finder to help you determine what combination
of passes and tickets is best for you.
