www.sncf.fr or www.renfe.es or www.raileurope.com or 1-800-4-EURAIL.

Buying here will cost you 30-80% more than buying it there.

Best wishes,

Rex

Rex...When you go to the web sites, they tell you you have to buy your passes here in the states or you don't get the "good prices" What gives?

My guess is that the Eurail PASS itself is more there than here. Then the reservations on each train costs more here than there. I bought my passes here, then went to www.raileurope.com for the timetables. I printed out all the trains/dates I wanted, then when I got to each destination I made reservations at the train station.

I´m not sure if it is possible to buy "Eurailpass" in Europe. Europeans use "InterRail", but you have to be resident in Europe for 6 months before you are allowed to buy it.

You can not buy "Eurail" Passes outside of the US. You can purchase point to point or individual country passes but they will be different from what is offered here.

I am taking the overnight train from Paris to Barcelona this Saturday, and found www.seat61.com really helpful. The excellent site covers not just train travel around Europe, but around the world.
BTW, I am taking the thalgo train which is purely a 'train hotel' with only sleeping rooms, a bar and a restaurant. It leaves Paris about 8pm and arrives Barcelona 8am. And I can't wait! Good luck
