Eurail Travel Questions & Suggestions

Jump to last reply

I am looking for advice, suggestions, and warnings regarding a travel by train vacation in Europe.

My wife and I (seniors) are going on our first trip to Europe. I have a U.S. citizenship and do not require a Schengen Visa, she is not a U.S. citizen and does require one. We have that taken care of.
Our intended length of stay is from 19 May to 19 June (approx. 30 days) & (7) countries would be visited.

We will arrive in Amsterdam, Netherlands on 19 May 2013 via KLM Airlines (start).
Order of countries we will visit:
Netherlands - Belgium - France (via Paris) - Switzerland - Lichtenstein - Austria (via Vienna) - Italy (via Venice & Rome)
We will depart from Rome, Italy (KLM flight) on 19 June 2013 via KLM Airlines (finish).

We are planning to make this trip by “Eurail” using their “1st Class Saver Global Pass”. Global Pass covers all the countries we intend to visit.
We would like to travel at our leisure by getting off the train in several locations along the route. It would be nice to have the option of saying, “this place is nice, let’s stay for a couple of days” or “we’ve seen enough, let’s move on to the next location”.

“This is where I am looking for advice and suggestions”.
What pass (out of this list) or (other suggestions) would be the most cost effective but still offer the freedom of disembarking and re-boarding at our leisure?
Maybe the list below is not the best way to go. I’m open to suggestions.

10 days within 2 months @ €568 (per person) $740.14 (as of 25 March 2013)
15 days within 2 months @ €745 (per person) $970.64
15 days + 2 free travel days in a row @ €482 (per person) $627.94
21 days + 3 free travel days in a row @ €622 (per person) $810.34
1 month + 5 free travel days in a row @ €765 (per person) $996.65

I am totally lost on the last one where they state: “1 month + 5 free travel days in a row @ €765 (per person)” I get the “1 month” & the “5 free days” part, but “travel days in a row” is what I don’t understand unless it means that once you use the 1st. free day, the next “2 free days need to be used consecutively? But why is this important if I have a pass? Duh! – cut me some slack, I did mention that I am a senior!
"Also"
Looking at these rates (per person) in American dollars may not be the most economical way to route this trip. Ouch, They are pricey.
Possibly buying the minimum cost ticket packets and purchasing additional tickets as needed, while there, would be more cost effective. Low cost air fare mixed with the rail travel may also be another option and be more cost effective. What do you think?

I would really appreciate any advice, like from those that have “been there – done that” The question would be - which packet to use so that it would be adequate for our plans but not overkill so that there would not be a large unused portion at the end of our journey?

Recommendations for lodging (how to call ahead and reserve), good restaurants, and other tips, etc. in the countries mentioned would also be appreciated.

As I mentioned, we are planning to leave on May 19, 2013, so any quick advice would be really appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
