RAIL EUROPE FRANCE RAIL PASS CONFUSION

Jump to last reply

Ahoy hoy!
I am purchasing a France Rail Pass for two youths through Rail Europe. I am uncertain on which trains are valid with the use of a rail pass.

The website states:
"Rail pass is valid on RER Line B between Paris Charles de Gaulle airport and Paris Nord Station: Prior to boarding RER, proceed to the SNCF-Transilien ticket counter in Roissy CDG and ask for a “contremarque” voucher."

Here is the confusion, does this mean that the rail pass is valid only on the RER Line B? Or are there other trains that are usable?

Also, as I am ordering my passes, it asks for the "Departure Date From Country of Residence". We are spending a month or so around other countries in Europe prior the need of our France Rail Pass. Do I put the first day we need the pass to be used or the day that we are actually departing the United States.

We're slow, I know
Thanks!
