    Changed reply in topic of Reservation booked/tickets received transfer times are 5 min! by Jeff to Hi Pierre,<br /><br />A common minimum connection time is 7 to 10 minutes at the typical station in Europe. At the station in Chester, a connection time of 5 minutes is doable, but it would be pretty tight. I would recommend allowing yourself more time. If you ever wish to arrange for a transfer time of your choosing, you would just do a separate search each segment of a connection. Therefore, you would do one search for trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/penmaenmawr-to-chester.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/popular-routes/penmaenmawr-to-chesterhtml">Penmaenmawr to Chester</a> and another search for trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/chester-to-manchester.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Chester to Manchester</a>. This would enable you to choose a later train for the segment from Chester to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/england/manchester/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Manchester</a>. Otherwise, you can choose a different connection altogether..

    Changed reply in topic of Does a trip from Frankfurt Aiport to the city centre count as a travel day on my German Rail Pass? by Jeff to Hi Cynthia,<br /><br />Yes, it would use up a 'travel day' on the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/german-rail-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow">German Rail Pass</a> if you use it to take the train from the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/germany/frankfurt/train-station/frankfurt-airport-train-station.html" rel="nofollow">Frankfurt Airport</a> into the city of <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/germany/frankfurt/index.html" rel="nofollow">Frankfurt</a>. If you don't wish to expend a 'travel day' on your pass for this, then you can just purchase a separate ticket. The ride is only about 10 minutes, so the ticket should be pretty cheap.<br /><br />There are certain trips for which riders wouldn't necessarily want to squander a day of travel on a (flexi) rail pass; the short trains between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/germany/frankfurt/train-station/frankfurt-airport-train-station.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/germany/frankfurt/train-station/frankfurt-airport-train-station.html">Frankfurt Airport</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/germany/frankfurt/index.html" rel="nofollow">Frankfurt</a> being a perfect example. You would really only want to consider using a flexipass for such a short ride if the pass is already being used for another longer trip on the same day..

    Changed reply in topic of Eurail France Pass - One calendar month or 30 days? by Jeff to Hi Jim,<br /><br />Rail passes aren't confined to one specific calendar month. They can overlap different months. A 1-month rail pass would be valid until the previous day of the following month from when you begin your travel. To elaborate, if you were to begin using a 1-month pass on April 24th, then the pass would be valid until May 23rd at midnight. This is how it works no matter how many days comprise of the month during which a passenger intends to begin their travel.<br /><br />For the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/france-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/france-pass/index.html">Eurail France Pass</a>, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/france-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/rail-tickets-passes/france-pass/indexhtml">https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/france-pass/index.html</a>..

    Changed reply in topic of Confused with reservation fee for Eurail Spain pass by Jeff to Hi,<br /><br />When applicable, reservations are a supplementary cost to the Eurail Spain Pass. Reservation costs still apply to the children, even though there is no cost for them on the actual rail pass.<br /><br /><b><u>Madrid to Toledo</u></b><br /><br />Trains from Madrid to Toledo are Avant trains. These trains do require reservations, but the ride is so short that it would not be worth expending a 'travel day' on your pass for this trip. With that being the case, I would recommend that you purchase regular point-to-point tickets for this part of your trip.<br /><br />To purchase regular tickets, you would click the 'Find Train Tickets' tab on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow">www.raileurope.com</a>) and enter the route. When purchasing regular tickets, you would also just have to be sure the 'No' option is checked where it asks you 'Are you traveling with a rail pass?'. Generally, trains in Spain can be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br /><b><u>Madrid to Cordoba</u></b><br /><br />Most trains from Madrid to Cordoba are high-speed AVE trains, although there are also some Alvia and Altaria.
