Eurail Pass / Train pricing help!

Jump to last reply

I'm figuring out my train travel for my upcoming Europe trip and want to make sure I'm not overlooking anything as it's quite confusing.

The part of my trip that I would use a Eurail pass is Amsterdam to Berlin to Prague to Budapest to Vienna to Munich.

From what I see, the best option for me would be to get a Eurail Select Youth Pass (I'm 24) for five countries and five uses - that comes in at $391. But that's $78 a ride... and while I could imagine Amsterdam to Berlin or Prague to Budapest being that pricey, it seems like Prague to Vienna / Vienna to Munich would certainly not be.

One thing I do like about the Eurail pass is the flexibility it offers - I don't have to plan in advance when I am leaving one place and going to another (this is a one month solo trip in late September/early October, by the way). Although if I do a night train, which I intend for Prague -> Budapest, then I need to reserve a couchette or bed in advance, so at least that much I do need to plan ahead for, right?

Does anybody have any advice about these prices and whether this Eurail pass is a good deal or whether I should just buy tickets in advance or whether I can buy tickets at the station day-of? Trying to find a good balance between cost and freedom...

Thanks in advance for any help!
