Book Train Tickets Now, or Buy Rail Pass

Jump to last reply

My question is this: for a 3 week trip starting in Budapest and ending in Amsterdam this June, should I go ahead and book individual tickets for each leg of the journey (Budapest>Vienna>Munich>Prague>Berlin>Amsterdam) which would come out to about 720 USD, or just get the 5 country rail pass and book the tickets as I go, the pass is about 620 USD.

My concerns are: If I don't book each trip now, I might not get the ones I want if I wait until I am there. But at the same time, if I get the rail pass I will have more freedom when I get there and not be locked into a set schedule.
