Hi everyone,

You'll get 20% off Eurail passes and 15% off Interrail passes if you buy a pass before December 31, 2016. Interrail passes are for European citizens, Eurail passes are for everyone else. Details can be found here:

Eurail:

Interrail:

Please note:

  • This offer applies to all Eurail passes and most Interrail passes, including the Interrail Global Pass but excluding the Interrail Switzerland Pass. Pass details can be found here.
  • Passes must be activated within 11 months, so you can already buy for next summer.
  • The discounted passes are not refundable.
  • Some of the websites mentioned above only offer the promotion until December 28.

Ok, I have another question. We are traveling from Amsterdam to three countries ( Paris, Lauterbrunnen, Venice and Rome)and staying 3 to 4 days in each, I think the Eurail Select Pass is the way we should go cause it's flexible, Right?? And since we are leaving from Amsterdam should I just get the three country select pass and just buy a ticket from Amsterdam to Paris and then start the pass in Paris to Switzerland??? And do I need to get any other passes like Swiss pass? Thank you!!

Well, it depends on your plans in each of those cities whether a Eurail Select Pass is the best choice. If you stay within the cities of Paris, Venice and Rome, a Eurail pass won't be helpful as you won't be traveling much, and urban transport like buses and trams are not included. Point to point tickets would likely be cheaper, plus a pass for Switzerland as I'm sure you will travel around there. You can use the Eurail Pass just on your longer transfer days, but be sure to compare prices as point to point tickets can be quite cheap if you book well in advance, and unlike Eurail passes they include seat reservations.

If those cities are just your base and you plan to travel a lot, Eurail is a good option. You'll have to do the math based on your detailed itinerary.

A Swiss Pass is for Swiss residents only, but the Swiss Travel Pass is certainly an option.

If you have more questions about picking a pass, please post more details in a new thread and we'll discuss it there.
