Rail passes – to buy or not to buy? E-mail

Should I buy a Eurail pass? Or maybe any other rail pass (InterRail, Swiss pass, French rail pass etc.) out of variety of train passes offered for traveling in Europe? Or perhaps it is possible to find train tickets that offer cheapest rail fares for point-to-point journeys instead? Is Eurail pass worth it? How cheap rail fares can be? These and alike questions probably being asked by many people planning their rail vacations or simply a few train trips in Europe. And quite often it is difficult to determine what solution to choose and whether it worth to buy train pass or better stick to cheap train tickets instead. The right decision might actually save you quite a fortune on your rail trips expenses that is why it makes sense to spend a bit of time and consider all pro & cons of train passes. And EuropeTrainsGuide team is here to help, we bring you a few major arguments for and against buying train passes:

Why not to buy a train pass:

  • Majority of train passes (but especially Eurail, both global and country or region specific) are expensive. And one of the main reasons for that is that both Eurail and Interail passes are issued by an agencies and not directly by rail companies. Agencies agree with European railways about certain conditions on how, when, where etc. train passes can and should be used. Ever wondered why pass conditions are different in different European countries? That is a primary reason why train pass holders in some countries don't pay any additional fees or supplements, while in other cases they do. When thinking about train passes you need always to remember that neither agencies nor railway companies function at a loss while selling and allowing use of train passes. Resume? In a majority of cases rail pass is not a way to save money when traveling by train in Europe
  • Behind biggest advantage of any rail pass (--> unlimited train trips during period of validity) hides a major disadvantage - big extra fees/supplements and pricey seat reservations. Basically it is a hidden extra charge in addition to already expensive train pass. Hard to imagine, but sometimes amount passenger pays for extra fees along with seat reservations can be even greater than point-to-point ticket for the same route and train. Most obvious example here is high-speed EuroStar train connecting London with Paris and Brussels. Pass holders fee for London-Paris route is 89 euro (2nd class), while cheapest tickets for the same route cost twice less. Do you still want a train pass? And almost the same picture can be seen with many other high-speed trains (like Thalys) or fancy overnight trains (like Trenhotel, Elipsos etc.)
  • Issue regarding train passes validity period. Especially with so-called 'continuous train passes' and rail passes with validity only for a few days. When buying such pass it is important to understand that it will be difficult to use it rationally, because you will spend half or even more time of your pass validity period on sightseeing, staying at hotel and other activities, and not making train trips. As result daily pass value (total price/number of days it is valid) might be even greater than full fare standard train ticket, not saying about discounted promo tickets (--> cheap rail fare), which a definitely will beat your pass daily value almost always
  • Have a train pass? No seat for you issue. In some, mainly Western European, countries there are special quotas for the number of passengers with rail pass per each train departure (such limitations obviously concern trains with compulsory seat/sleeper reservations). Therefore you, as a pass holder, might experience problems with buying seat reservation simply because there are no seats for rail pass holders left for the train you want. And what if you need urgently to go by this specific train and not any other? Then the only thing left will be to buy full ticket (will costs a fortune because purchased right before train departure). Do you want to end up in such situation?

Why to buy a train pass:

  • Unlimited train trips with as many stopovers as you want, therefore it perfectly fits for those who are not sure about any exact itinerary (or simply spontaneous), but at the same time plan to travel quite a lot, internationally and on long distances
  • Train pass gives a good value for train trips in European countries where traveling by train is rather expensive, but pass holders don't need to pay any additional supplements or reservations, thus no hidden extra costs
  • Quite often rail pass can give you some additional discounts on certain non-rail activities (like tickets for ferries, city or museum tours etc.). Nevertheless, such discounts usually aren't essential, so it doesn't make sense to have a pass just in order to use certain additional discount
