Anyone travel the EuroRail?

Recommended Posts

If so, tell me about your experiences. Was it worth it? More expensive than hotel? FI and I have decided on our honeymoon but we were thinking of doing the EuroRail and checking out some more countries.

I have and highly recommend it! I've traveled across Europe twice on a Eurail pass. I went to 5 countries and only had to take a cab twice. It goes everywhere and is so convenient. I did the Global Pass but there are some less expensive options available if you just want to go to a couple of countries. Where are you planning on going?

 

The trains in some countries are better than others but overall I felt safe at all times. They even have night trains. I took one from Florence, Italy to Munich, Germany (on my way to Oktoberfest :)). You have to pay an additional fee for a private sleeper car but it was about the same price as a hotel. The one I stayed in even had a private bathroom with a shower.

 

This is where I got my pass...

Let me know if you have more questions. I spent a LOT of time on the trains! :)

I agree. I had a 10 country pass when i backpacked in college and it was great. For your honeymoon, definitely make reservations and get a private car of course. There's tons of options so just decide exactly where you want to go and for how long. I like the night trains b/c it always seems like a waste of a whole day to sit on a train. I've taken them in Western and Eastern Europe both alone and with my FI and never had a major problem.

I used it about 8 years ago for my 6 week backpacking trip and loved it. It's SO easy to use. Make sure you make reservations though if you want a private room.

I took it last summer while in Italy. I HIGHLY recommend it. We went during the day so I didn't sleep on the train. It was very inexpensive and nice to see the country side.

my sister and i looked into it when we traveled in europe. for whatever reason, at the time, it made sense to fly from one place to the next. we did strange cities tho (bologna and faenza, italy; nerka, spain; and dublin, which isn't so strange.)

I took the chunnel from london to paris. it was great. traveling by train was so much nicer than flying. the train was perfectly on schedule. you don't have to show up that early. it was really comfortable.

 

a roundtrip is often cheaper than a 1-way.

 

it's cheaper when you book in advance

 

if you are doing an overnight, get a private room

We're planning on flying to Portugal for a week, traveling around there and then take the Eurorail through Spain and France, and ending in Amsterdam. Plans aren't definite though.. only the Portugal for 2 weeks part :)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
