Cost of supplement if traveling with rail pass

We're (two adults and a 14 year old) considering getting one of the various rail passes for travelling in France, Italy and Switzerland this summer. I guess I don't have a handle on how the various additional fees work if you have a rail pass.

I was trying to find out what the supplemental fare would be travelling from Paris to Milan and thought it came out as something like $150 per person on the Rail Europe website. Does that sound right? One of the reasons I'm considering the passes would be to save money.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Patrick

What class of service? Are you traveling at night and need a sleeper? Are you using the TGV or EC?

Offhand, it looks like you should probably see a travel agent.

You can probably escape all supplement and reservation fees if you plan your journey to avoid the premium services.

You can also email RailEurope about any particular route or time and ask about supplement. They should email you back within 24 hours.

Hi PSG,

Before you buy a railpass, go to www.railsaver.com and enter your itinerary.

They will tell you if a railpass will save you money.

I think all of those countries have family discounts for two adults traveling with a child.
