It seems like I am able to buy a high speed train ticket for Jan 2018 from Antequera to Granada.

    Changed reply in topic of What does "set number of days" on a rail pass mean? by Jeff to Hi Nettie,<br /><br />There is no option of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-global-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow">Eurail Global Pass</a> for '5 days of travel within 15 days'. With the 5 day 'flexi' option of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-global-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow">Eurail Global Pass</a>, you would have a time frame of 1 month to complete your travel, and the 5 'travel days' would not have to be consecutive.<br /><br />Rail passes can be offered in two different basic formats: 'consecutive' ('continuous') and 'flexi'. Most rail passes can only be offered in 'flexi' form, but some do offer both options for you to choose. The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-global-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow">Eurail Global Pass</a> happens to offer both options.<br /><br />Consecutive just means that you would be allowed unlimited travel within the indicated time frame. Therefore, if you were to purchase a 5 day 'consecutive' pass, that means you would be entitled to unlimited travel within that time frame of 5 days. You would not HAVE to travel every day, but you would be entitled to unlimited travel within the 5 day time frame.<br /><br />In contrast, a 'flexipass' allows for a set number of travel days that must be completed within a longer time frame (generally, that longer time frame is 1 month or 2 months, depending on the pass). 'Travel days' on a 'flexipass' refer to how many separate days you plan on using your rail pass. A ‘travel day’ is a 24-hour period from midnight to midnight. You may take as many trains as you wish during the 24-hour time frame and still only use one day of travel on a pass. For instance, if you were take a day train from 'city A' to 'city B' and then take a connecting train to 'city C' on the same day, then you would only use up one day of travel on your rail pass. In contrast, if you were to take that connecting train to 'city C' on the next day, that would constitute 2 days of rail travel on your pass.<br /><br />'Travel days' are not applicable to the 'consecutive' passes, since these are for unlimited travel within the time frame allowed.<br /><br />With a 'flexipass', your 'travel days' do not have to be designated in advance, although many trains will require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass. Reservations are required on most high-speed trains, many international routes, and all overnight trains. In Western Europe, most major cities are connected almost exclusively by high-speed trains. Therefore, it is likely that reservations will be required for many of your trips in there. The same would likely be the case for any internationally operating trains (trains going from one country to another).<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 Global Pass')..

    Changed reply in topic of What does "set number of days" on a rail pass mean? by Jeff to Hi Glenn,<br /><br />There is no such thing as a '7 day ticket'. For the itinerary you laid out, the pass you would purchase is the 3 country option of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Select Pass</a> to include the Benelux, <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/germany/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Germany</a>, and the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/czech-republic/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/europe-travel-guide/czech-republic/indexhtml">Czech Republic</a>. The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Select Pass</a> is valid for a time period of 2 months. Rest assured, you can overlap months if need be.<br /><br />For the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/indexhtml">Eurail Select Pass</a>, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/indexhtml">https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html</a>.<br /><br />The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/the-netherlands/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Netherlands</a> is included as a part of the 'Benelux'. The Benelux covers <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/belgium/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Belgium</a>, the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/the-netherlands/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/europe-travel-guide/the-netherlands/indexhtml">Netherlands</a> and Luxembourg and counts them as one country for the purpose of rail passes. Therefore, you would include the Benelux as one of the 'countries' on your <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/indexhtml">Eurail Select Pass</a>.<br /><br />Rail passes cover ticket costs. On most of your trains, reservations will be highly recommended as a supplement to the rail pass. 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" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a>), entering a route, and indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a 'Eurail Three Country Select Pass').<br /><br /><b><u>Amsterdam-Berlin</u></b><br /><br />From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/netherlands/amsterdam/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Amsterdam</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/germany/berlin/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Berlin</a>, you would take a direct IC (InterCity) train. On the IC trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/amsterdam-to-berlin.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Amsterdam to Berlin</a>, reservations are highly recommended as a supplement to the rail pass. Generally, these trains can be reserved up to 180 days in advance of a departure.<br /><br /><b><u>Berlin-Prague</u></b><br /><br />Trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/germany/berlin/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Berlin</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/czech-republic/prague/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Prague</a> are EC (EuroCity) trains on which reservations are highly recommended as a supplement to the rail pass.

Even though it's a bus, the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Select Pass</a> is valid (as long as it includes the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/czech-republic/index.html" rel="nofollow">Czech Republic</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/germany/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/germany/index.html">Germany</a>).
