    Changed reply in topic of Best to buy pass online even though departure is in 3 days? by Jeff to Hi Gary,<br /><br />For the Eurail Italy Pass, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-italy-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-italy-pass/index.html">https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-italy-pass/index.html</a>.<br /><br />For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations by clicking the 'Seat Reservations' tab on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>), entering a route, and indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a 'Eurail Italy Pass').<br /><br /><b><u>Rome to Venice</u></b><br /><br />From Rome to Venice, there are high-speed Frecciarossa, Frecciargento, and Italo trains. Italo trains do not accept rail passes, so you would just want to be sure to choose one of the Frecciarossa or Frecciargento trains when you go to book your reservations.<br /><br />The Frecciarossa and Frecciargento trains do require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass. Generally, trains from Rome to Venice can be reserved once within 120 days of an intended date of departure.<br /><br /><b><u>Venice to Naples</u></b><br /><br />From Venice to Naples, there are high-speed Frecciarossa and Italo trains.

    Changed reply in topic of Frankfurt to Switzerland roundtrip by Jeff to Hi Kevin,<br /><br />Rest assured, the scenic trains in Switzerland are covered by rail passes, whether it be a multi-country 'Eurail Select Pass' that includes Switzerland or the single country 'Swiss Travel Pass'. Some of the scenic trains would just require reservations as a supplement to a rail pass.<br /><br /><b><u>Swiss Travel Pass</u></b><br /><br />The 'Swiss Travel Pass' is unique from other rail passes in that it also covers boats, city buses, and city transit networks. This pass will also provide for the best possible discounts on mountain railways and allows for entry to over 500 museums around Switzerland. A detailed list of the museums can be found here: <a href="http://www.museumspass.ch/en/" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.museumspass.ch/en/">http://www.museumspass.ch/en/</a>.<br /><br />For the Swiss Travel Pass, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html">https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html</a><br /><br /><b><u>Eurail Select Pass</u></b><br /><br />In contrast, a Eurail Select Pass does not cover boats, city buses, or museums. Generally, a Eurail Select Pass would not cover city transit networks, but the S-Bahn commuter rail network in German cities is an exception. Any rail pass that includes Germany is valid to cover S-Bahn trains within German cities (with the exception of certain S-Bahn lines in Berlin). While a Eurail Select Pass would not cover boats, it would provide for discounts of 50% on certain boats in Switzerland.<br /><br />For the Eurail Select Pass, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html">https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html</a>.

    Changed reply in topic of What is the best way to research time tables and reservation fee? by Jeff to Hi Jeanette,<br /><br />When determining the best option for an itinerary, it is best to consider and factor in the reservation costs for the trains you'll be taking. However, reservation costs can vary between trains. Therefore, you would want to go through and check the reservation costs and then add the total to the cost of the rail pass you'd be purchasing.<br /><br />For travel with a rail pass, you would check reservation costs and purchase reservations by clicking the 'Seat Reservations' tab on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">www.raileurope.com</a>), entering a route, and indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling.<br /><br />Throughout much of Europe, reservable trains can only be booked once within 90 days of an intended date of departure. If your intended travel happens to fall outside of this time frame, you would just use an earlier date some time within the next 90 days to get an idea of the reservation costs and view schedules.<br /><br />Reservable trains within <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/germany/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/germany/index.html">Germany</a> are generally now able to be booked within 180 days of an intended departure, and reservable trains within <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/italy/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Italy</a> are generally now able to be booked within 120 days of an intended departure.<br /><br />When you're asked 'How many days do you plan to travel by train?', you would indicate the number of separate days that you plan to take a train. Therefore, if you're planning to take multiple trains on the same day, you would only count that as 1 day. If your next trip is 3 days later, that would count as the 2nd day, and so on and so forth..

From Irun, you can either take a direct bus all the way to Bilbao, or else you can take a bus or local commuter train to San Sebastián first. The commuter trains from Irun to San Sebastián are either 'Euskotrens' or 'Cercanías' trains.<br /><br />You would purchase tickets for a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/tgv/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TGV</a> from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/bordeaux-to-irun.html" rel="nofollow">Bordeaux to Irun</a> by searching the route under 'Find Train Tickets' on our homepage, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a>.
