My family of 4 is going travelling on a London-Paris-Rome trip this summer and I know I need to book our reservations asap. I’m trying to decide on the Eurail Global pass vs. just buying individual tickets. I think all our routes will require supplements on a pass but I’m having trouble seeing how much those will cost so I can compare. (I was able to see what costs are booking individually.)
These are our trains:
Intercite nuit Paris-Carcassonne
I know normally people here tend to say that in Italy it’s cheaper to go without railpasses, but I do think we are mostly on longer/pricier routes so I’m not sure.
Another complication in comparison is my daughter apparently doesn’t need a Railpass (she’s 11) but she would of course need reservations. I assume if I buy passes there is a way to order those reservations but again, I can’t get an estimate.
Eurail passes 2nd class are 1064., 1st class 1364., We’d have to add reservations to that. We’d also have an extra day we could use for day tripping locally somewhere (as that’s a 7 day and we have 6 major trips)
Pricing individual trips, with all reservations looks like around 1600.-1800.
I’ve loved using Interrail/Eurail in the pass but it was years ago when reservations were not so needed (I also had a lot more time to be flexible!)
Anyone have any advice on which option I should take? Whatever it is I know I need to get on getting those reservations.
Thanks very much!
