Often yes: on the websites of the railway companies. Or on websites like Rail Europe, Happyrail or Trainline.

Thank you for your reply.  I am a 73-year old that will be visiting my son who is stationed in Brussels.  I am completely unfamiliar with the European train system.  It may be me, but I find it so confusing.  From what I gather, you cannot check on the Eurail website to determine  how much a ticket would actually cost to compare whether it would be worth buying a global pass.  Thus, if I plan  a three-day trip to Paris and a two-day trip to London in January, would it be worth buying a 4-day global pass.  Would checking out either of the sites you listed help determine this?

Thank you for your help, I really do appreciate the time you took to address my concerns.

For just these 2 return trips, I think it's better just to book normal tickets. If you can book early, there are pretty good deals. You can book these on

Really appreciate the suggestions. Aloha and thank you.
