Eurailpass vs. air for three-four weeks across Europe?

Jump to last reply

My 23 yr old and another young woman plan to spend most of May travelling between Galway and Amsterdam, maybe Belgium, maybe Germany, Vienna, Croatia, maybe Greece, then end in Lecce in southern Italy.

They're staying in hostels and crashing on couches, and economy will be a big factor, followed ideally by flexibility. (I would insert personal safety into the mix, unobtrusively, and bear a thought for the environment.)

She wonders whether a Eurailpass would be better, or low cost airlines.

My sense is that getting air tickets now for a few of the longest hauls, then point to point rail tickets might be best. Opinions?.
