Rail Europe Pass

I purchased a 7 day Rail Europe Pass good for 1 month that my husband & I used in Germany last month. We had a few days before & after a river cruise so we did some rail trips on our own. It cost $540.00. I did not bother to figure out how much each individual round trip would cost, but it was nice not to have to get in line each time we wanted to go someplace. I may (????) have spent more than had we just bought the daily tickets to each destination, but it was great not to have to fuss. We just got on the train & went.
A word of caution: You have to go to a DB bahn (in Germany or wherever you may be) information desk before you use your pass for the 1st time & get it stamped. Whether it is the same day you do that & take your 1st rail ride or not, you MUST ALSO enter the 1st date you use the pass.....and each date to follow. I did not realize that because I thought the stamp covered that 1st day which was the same day we took our 1st ride. I should have read the print more carefully. Fortunately we did not get caught as there was no conductor checking tickets on that day on our train. I did enter every other day & realized my mistake when I had one extra box in which a date goes, leftover. Hopefully you can follow all I just wrote.
I talked to Byron who was very helpful at budgeteurope@comcast.net. I don't have his number, but you can get it on that website. He sent me the pass via UPS. I had no problems.
