What is allowed for my 4 travel days?

I’m visiting Europe from NZ,  planning to buy a 4 days in one month pass for August/September. I have a couple of questions:

  1. I assume it isn’t calendar month, but 30 days?
  2. Does it matter if journeys loop back and there are gaps?

Here is my plan:

31st August - Hertford to Carnforth

15th September - Kettering to Conwy

20th September - Conwy (or Bangor) to Kettering [**2** can I return to Kettering again?]

23rd September - London - Berlin 

**1** All travel days are within 3.5 weeks, but over two different calendar months.

Validity is a month from your first travel date, so for example 31 Aug to 30 Sep.

There is no restriction on where or how much you travel.

You will need a reservation for the London - Brussels or Amsterdam portion.

Use to see availability and book.

The only suitable train with availability on that date that gives enough time to connect to Berlin is the 08.16, you should book this as soon as possible as Eurostar have a quota for passholders that sells out.

08.16 London St Pancras - Brussels Midi 11.12

12.25 Brussels Midi - Koln Hbf 14.15

14.36 Koln Hbf - Berlin Hbf 19.57

would be the best option, there are later connections at both Brussels and Koln if those are missed.

Only the Eurostar from London requires reservations but you may want to get them for some of the other longer journeys. for German trains, just search seat only.

For UK reservations set up an account on and then you can make free seat reservations.

Wonderful, thanks very much, that is all really helpful information. I’ll book my pass and reserve the Eurostar segment today.
