Eurail Pass - don't waste your money

Jump to last reply

After previously using and enjoying train travel in Europe with the Eurail Pass, I had a horrible experience with it this past March. The Eurail Pass is supposed to be all First Class, however you now have to purchase a very expensive reservation in order to use it in First Class on most trains. And you can't make reservations on the internet from outside the countries you want to travel in.

The biggest problem is that most country's train systems only have a very few seats (or maybe none, from what I could tell) available for Eurail Pass use, so you can't get a reservation. It's worse than trying to use reward miles on an airline.

Furthermore, the "First Class" Eurail Pass does not allow you access to the First Class lounges in train stations when you find that you are stuck there for many hours waiting for a train where you could actually use the Pass in First Class.

You can use the Eurail Pass more easily in Second class with a cheaper reservation but after adding it all up - it would have been cheaper and far less frustrating to simply buy the second class reservations & tickets at train stations once I got to Europe.

So - the Eurail Pass is a big ripoff and an epic fail.
