Hi Arno,

Planning to choose a eurorail select pass for 3 countr ies for 15 days thats around 655$ per person 1st class saver price.. plus the other supplements thats is going to add up to my cost. Please guide me what should I do to keep the cost low..
Thanks in advance

Hello rampreet and welcome to MySwissAlps,

This promotion would allow you to travel for 17 days instead of 14, so that's indirect saving. Another way to save money is to use what's included for free in your pass and skip excursions that you need to pay extra for, and prevent traveling on trains that need a supplement. I assume you're from the US or Canada since you're looking into this promotion?
