Euro Rail Pass: Your pass (aka Eurail pass) offers freedom to travel about Europe on most trains. It's your best bet if you plan to visit a wide range of cities on your European tour.
Other Benefits of a Euro Rail pass: No standing in long queues at the ticket counter; discounted-to-free ferry and bus travel; discounts on hotels and rental cars, plus free train time table and travelers' guide. Since all european trains always leave on time, if you miss a train, don't worry, you can catch the next train in later time.
Global Pass: Opt for the Eurorail Global Pass and you may travel around 28 countries, including Italy, Spain, France and Germany. Choose from 'Continuous' or 'Flexi' global passes. If you plan to be on the move, get the "Continuous" pass.
If you prefer a leisurely trip, the "Flexi" pass sets out certain dates for travel, with time in between for exploring each city. You'll save money with the "Flexi" pass, since you won't be continuously riding a train.
Select Pass: Your Eurorail Select Pass lets you explore four countries as long as their border is connected by ship or train. Select from countries such as, Hungary, Denmark, Romania, Turkey and many more.
Upgrade to First Class: The differences between first and second class train travel aren't enough to write home about: Seats are a teensy-weensy bit bigger and a tad more comfortable. Definitely expect extra leg room and baggage space. First class is not jam-packed with people like second class because it is over-the-top expensive.
Insider Advice: Don't pony up for first class accommodations; put your money where it matters, on reserved seating. With reserved seating, you get a choice of aisle or window seat in the main carriage or a compartment. Also, Be sure to write down the travel log in order to validate your Euro Rail ticket.
Now, you can make an informed decision about European train tickets. Enjoy your journey!
