Traveling Europe via Eurail can save you thousands of dollars, but what pass is write for you?

If you are heading to Europe and plan to use the Eurail train as your main source of transportation between countries you will need to figure out exactly what you need.  The two types of passes we will be talking about in this article are the Eurail Global Pass and the Eurail Select Pass.

The first thing you need to figure out is how much time you plan on travelling between countries. You can buy both continuous passes that are good for 15 days + or you can buy flex passes that are good for 10 or 15 different days over a two month period.  If you plan on visiting friends or family in different counties for a few days or weeks at a time, the flex passes will probably be ideal for you.  If you want to travel from one country to the next at the drop of a hat, then the continuous passes will be more suited to your needs.

Once you know how much you think you will be travelling you need to decide on what type of pass you will need.  The Global Pass you can travel between twenty one different Countries, while the Eurail Select pass you can choose between three and five countries.

If you are planning on doing a lot of travelling all over Europe for three months, investing 1432 Euros in a three month adult Global pass will be more than worth it.  You will be able to go to any of the following 21 countries at your leisure Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

Now if you are only planning on visiting a few bordering countries, the Select pass will be ideal for you.  With the select pass, you can choose between three and five countries and get unlimited travel between them. The only caveat is that they have to be bordering countries. So travelling from Portugal to Romania would not be possible using the Eurail Select Pass.

Regardless of which pass you select to empower your travels, rest assured you will be travelling in comfort. If you are an adult, all passes include first class accommodations.  Youth passes are also available for people under the age of 25, however accompanying your price discount is a slight reduction in luxury as you will be placed in second class. Even though second class doesn't sound as luxurious as first class, you will still have a fantastic travel experience using the Eurail train.
