Is the Benelux pass worth the money?

Jump to last reply

My husband (with a disability) and I plan to spend four nights in Brussels taking a couple of day trips by train and then four nights in Rotterdam doing the same. Looking at the Benelux pass I wonder if, for example, a trip from Brussels to Ghent and back, which costs $18.00 per person (seniors) each way for a total of $72.00 makes more sense than the pass? If I take the 5 day pass I can use the train pass to go from Brussels to Rotterdam. Then from Rotterdam to Venlo for the Floriade exhibits returning to Rotterdam to our hotel. We also want to take some shorter trips like Brussels to Bruges and Rotterdam to The Hague.

Some questions please:
Is it worth using the pass for short trips?
Are the passes considered discounted fares?
Is it easier to store our luggage travelling 1st class or is it the same for second class?
Are buying tickets an inconvenience and having the Pass a big help?

Thanks for the help.
