    Changed reply in topic of Barcelona, Madrid, Toledo (Orgaz), Cordoba, Granada, Malaga (Torremolinos) - Rail pass or rail tickets? by Jeff to Hi Maria,<br /><br />For the requested itinerary, your best option would be the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/spain-pass-5931" rel="nofollow">Eurail Spain Pass</a>. For the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/spain-pass-5931" rel="nofollow">Eurail Spain Pass</a>, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/spain-pass-5931" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/spain-pass-5931">https://www.raileurope.com/pass/spain-pass-5931</a>.<br /><br />For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations by searching the route on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>), checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a ‘Eurail Spain Pass’).<br /><br />Generally, reserved trains in Spain can only be booked once within 60-90 days of an intended departure date. If your intended travel falls outside of this time frame, you would just use dates within the next 60 days to get an idea of the reservation costs and schedules in the meantime.<br /><br /><b><u>Barcelona to Madrid with a Eurail Spain Pass</u></b><br /><br />From Barcelona to Madrid, you would take an AVE high-speed train. These trains from Barcelona to Madrid do require reservations as a supplement to the Eurail Spain Pass.<br /><br /><b><u>Madrid to Toledo (Orgaz) with a Eurail Spain Pass</u></b><br /><br />Orgaz itself does not have a station, so you would take the train to Toledo, which is about 15-20 miles away. Even though the ride from Madrid to Toledo is very short, these are AVE high-speed trains and reservations would still be required as a supplement to the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/spain-pass-5931" rel="nofollow">Eurail Spain Pass</a>.<br /><br />From Toledo, you can see if there are buses or some other form of transportation to Orgaz.<br /><br /><b><u>Toledo to Cordoba with a Eurail Spain Pass</u></b><br /><br />A connection from Toledo to Cordoba would involve going back to Madrid first and then taking a direct train from there to Cordoba. Trains from Toledo to Madrid and Madrid to Cordoba are AVE high-speed trains, so reservations would be required on both segments. When booking reservations for a trip from Toledo to Cordoba, you would just have to break up your search in Madrid. Therefore, you would do one search from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/toledo-madrid" rel="nofollow">Toledo to Madrid</a> and then another search for connecting trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/madrid-cordoba" rel="nofollow">Madrid to Cordoba</a>.<br /><br /><b><u>Cordoba to Granada with a Eurail Spain Pass</u></b><br /><br />Due to ongoing construction on the rail line outside of Granada, connections from Cordoba to Granada involve taking the train as far as Antequera, where you would then switch to a bus that would take you to Granada.<br /><br />The trains from Cordoba to Antequera are AVE, Avant, or Altaria trains. These do require reservations as a supplement to the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/spain-pass-5931" rel="nofollow">Eurail Spain Pass</a>. However, these particular trains are currently not able to be reserved on our website. Instead, to book these reservations, please send an email to <a href="mailto:customercare@raileurope.com" rel="nofollow">customercare@raileurope.com</a>. In the email, please mention that you were advised on this messageboard that the Cordoba-Antequera trains are currently not able to be reserved on the website. Just remember these trains can only be reserved within 60-90 days of a departure date.<br /><br />Since the Antequera-Granada bus is a substitution for trains that should be operating on this route, your <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/spain-pass-5931" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/spain-pass-5931">Eurail Spain Pass</a> would still be valid.<br /><br /><b><u>Granada to Malaga (Torremolinos) with a Eurail Spain Pass</u></b><br /><br />To get from Granada to Malaga, you would again have to take that bus back to Antequera. In Antequera, you would switch to a train down to Malaga. The trains from Antequera to Malaga are AVE trains or Avant trains, both of which would require reservations as a supplement to the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/spain-pass-5931" rel="nofollow">Eurail Spain Pass</a>.<br /><br />Once again, your Eurail Spain Pass is valid on the Granada-Antequera bus, and you would have to email <a href="mailto:customercare@raileurope.com" rel="nofollow">customercare@raileurope.com</a> if you'd like to set up reservations for a train from Antequera to Malaga.<br /><br />Malaga is the mainline station that services the Costa del Sol. If you need to get to Torremolinos, you would take a local Cercanías commuter train (Cercanías Málaga) out of Malaga. Specifically, you would take the C-1 line of Malaga's Cercanías network. If you make the connection to Torremolinos within 3 hours of your arrival into Malaga from Granada/Antequera, then your <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/spain-pass-5931" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/spain-pass-5931">Eurail Spain Pass</a> would be valid. Otherwise, you would just purchase the additional tickets locally and it should only be a few euros. I believe the C-1 Cercanías trains from Malaga to Torremolinos only takes about 20-25 minutes..

    Changed reply in topic of Website won't let me book train travel with my RailEurope pass by Jeff to Hi Gilbert,<br /><br />For trains in the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/united-kingdom" rel="nofollow">UK</a>, passholder reservations are only able to be purchased locally and are only recommended on trains that take over 2.5 hours. You can purchase the reservations by going to the ticket window in the station and mentioning that you have a BritRail Pass or the Eurail Global Pass. Of the specific trips you mentioned, reservations are highly recommended on trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/bristol" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/bristol">Bristol</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/york" rel="nofollow">York</a>, <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/york" rel="nofollow">York</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/edinburgh" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/edinburgh">Edinburgh</a>, and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/edinburgh" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/edinburgh">Edinburgh</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/london">London</a>.<br /><br />For trains in the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/united-kingdom" rel="nofollow">UK</a> under 2.5 hours in duration, reservations are not necessary at all. There is no need at all to have reservations on the train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/bath" rel="nofollow">Bath</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/bristol" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/bristol">Bristol</a>.<br /><br />I'm very sorry you've spent time on this and that this information wasn't conveyed on our website..

    Changed reply in topic of 4 Scenic Options for a Trip from Venice to Salzburg! by Jeff to If you're one of those travelers who is drawn to the journey and you have the time to spare, consider these scenic options for your trip from <a href="https://www.raileurope-asean.com/city/venice" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Venice</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/salzburg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/salzburg">Salzburg</a>:<br /><br /><b><u>Venice to Salzburg / The Fastest Option &amp; 50 Minutes of the Salzburg-Tyrol Railway</u></b><br /><i>(Venice-Villach-Salzburg)</i><br /><br />1.) The fastest and most feasible route from <a href="https://www.raileurope-asean.com/city/venice" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope-asean.com/city/venice">Venice</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/salzburg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/salzburg">Salzburg</a> takes just under 6 hours in duration and involves changing trains once in Villach along the way. The train from Villach to Salzburg takes you over part of the very scenic Salzburg-Tyrol Railway. The Salzburg-Tyrol Railway starts as your train passes through Schwarzach and then culminates you arrive into Salzburg.<br /><br />When purchasing tickets for this option on <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a>, you would just break up your search once in Villach. Therefore, you would do one search from Venice to Villach and then another search for connecting trains from Villach to Salzburg. The trains from Venice to Villach can be booked once within 90-120 days of an intended departure date, while the trains from Villach to Salzburg can only be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br /><b><u>Venice to Salzburg / Brenner Railway &amp; a Touch of Southern Bavaria</u></b><br /><i>(Venice-Verona-Innsbruck-Salzburg)</i><br /><br />2.) If you don’t mind adding about 2 hours to your journey time, you can travel from <a href="https://www.raileurope-asean.com/city/venice" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileurope-aseancom/city/venice">Venice</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/salzburg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/salzburg">Salzburg</a> by way of the famed Brenner Railway. This option takes just under 8 hours in duration and involves 2 train changes along the way; once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/verona" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/verona">Verona</a> and then once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/innsbruck" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Innsbruck</a>. The train from Verona to Innsbruck runs over the scenic Brenner Railway through Italy's Dolomites and then the Tyrolean Alps of Austria. The direct <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/railjet-austria-and-beyond-7543" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/railjet-austria-and-beyond-7543">Railjet</a> trains from Innsbruck to Salzburg then cut through southern Bavaria over the also scenic Rosenheim-Kufstein &amp; Rosenheim-Salzburg Railways.<br /><br />When purchasing tickets for this option on <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a>, you would just have to piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment. Therefore, you would do one search from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/venice-verona" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train-tickets/journeys/article/venice-verona">Venice to Verona</a>, another search for connecting trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/verona-innsbruck" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train-tickets/journeys/article/verona-innsbruck">Verona to Innsbruck</a>, and then another search for connecting trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/innsbruck-salzburgo" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train-tickets/journeys/article/innsbruck-salzburgo">Innsbruck to Salzburg</a>. The trains from Venice to Verona and Verona to Innsbruck can be booked once within 90-120 days of an intended departure date, while the trains from Innsbruck to Salzburg can only be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br />Of the 4 routes, this one is probably the best compromise between expeditiousness and scenery.<br /><br /><b><u>Venice to Salzburg / The Brenner Railway &amp; Salzburg-Tyrol Railway Killer Combo</u></b><br /><i>(Venice-Verona-Worgl-Salzburg)</i><br /><br />3.) For a more leisurely and possibly even more scenic route between <a href="https://www.raileurope-asean.com/city/venice" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileurope-aseancom/city/venice">Venice</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/salzburg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/salzburg">Salzburg</a>, it would add about 4 hours to your total journey time, incorporating both the Brenner Railway and the Salzburg-Tyrol Railway. In its entirety, this option takes just under 10 hours in duration and involves 2 train changes along the way; once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/verona" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Verona</a>&nbsp;and then once in Worgl. The train from Verona to Worgl takes you over the Brenner Railway. When you arrive into Worgl, you would then need to be sure to switch to one of the regional (REX) trains to Salzburg, instead of the faster <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/railjet-austria-and-beyond-7543" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/railjet-austria-and-beyond-7543">Railjet</a> trains. The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/railjet-austria-and-beyond-7543" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/railjet-austria-and-beyond-7543">Railjet</a> trains from Worgl to Salzburg are the ones that cut through Bavaria over the Rosenheim-Kufstein &amp; Rosenheim-Salzburg Railways, which are scenic, but not probably not considered quite as scenic as the regional (REX) trains between the same cities. The regional (REX) trains from Worgl to Salzburg travel along the full Salzburg-Tyrol Railway, which stays within the Austrian border, and is thought of as being a little more scenic than the route through Bavaria.<br /><br />The tickets from Venice to Verona and Verona to Worgl can be purchased on <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>. However, the regional (REX) trains from Worgl to Salzburg are not able to be booked on our website. To inquire about booking the train from Worgl to Salzburg, you would send an email to <a href="mailto:customercare@raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">customercare@raileurope.com</a>. The trains from Venice to Verona and Verona to Worgl can be booked once within 90-120 days of an intended departure date, while tickets for the regional (REX) trains from Worgl to Salzburg can only be booked within 60 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br /><b><u>Venice to Salzburg / The Semmering Detour (via Vienna)</u></b><br /><i>(Venice-Vienna-Salzburg)</i><br /><br />4.) Lastly, there is a scenic option that would have you going the other direction out of <a href="https://www.raileurope-asean.com/city/venice" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileurope-aseancom/city/venice">Venice</a> toward <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/vienna" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/vienna">Vienna</a>. This option takes about 10 hours and involves changing trains only the once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/vienna" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/vienna">Vienna</a> along the way. The train from Venice to Vienna takes passengers over a famed scenic line called the Semmering Railway. This stretch of railway starts as your Venice-Vienna train passes through Bruck an der Mur/Mürzzuschlag and culminates as you pass through Gloggnitz/Wiener Neustadt before you get to Vienna.<br /><br />When purchasing tickets for this option on <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a>, you would break up your search once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/vienna" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/vienna">Vienna</a>. Therefore, you would do one search to access the direct trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/venice-vienna" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train-tickets/journeys/article/venice-vienna">Venice to Vienna</a> and then another search for connecting trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/vienna-salzburg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train-tickets/journeys/article/vienna-salzburg">Vienna to Salzburg</a>.

    Changed description of We are traveling from Munich to Rothenburg OD Taube, then from Rothenburg OD Taube to Cologne, Cologne to Brussels. When in Belgium, we'll be taking trains from Leuven to Brussels and Leuven to Bruges (and back). <br /><br /> We plan on buying the 7 day Eurail Global Pass for this trip, but I can't figure out which legs need reservations (if any). How can I find this out? If they don't need reservations, does that mean we can come and go as we please on our desired day of travel? If we do need reservations, then I assume we are bound to the date/time we have reserved. <br /><br /> I'm also curious if the Global Pass will work for the smaller trains/subways within cities like Munich and Brussels. <br /><br /> Please help!

    Changed reply in topic of Eurail Global Pass for Germany and Belgium (Munich, Rothenberg ob der Tauber, Cologne, Brussels, Leuven, Bruges) by Jeff to Generally, rail passes do not cover metro/public transit systems within European cities, although there are some exceptions. For instance, the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a> does cover the S-Bahn commuter trains in German cities (including <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/munich" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Munich</a>), but not the U-Bahn trains in German cities.

I'll run through each of your trips.<br /><br /><b><u>Munich to Rothenburg ob der Tauber with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />The fastest connections from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/munich" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Munich</a> to Rothenburg ob der Tauber take about 2.5 hours in duration and involve 3 train changes along the way; once in Nuremberg, once in Ansbach, and then once in Steinach.<br /><br />Trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/munich" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Munich</a> to Nuremberg are high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/ice-7534">ICE</a> (<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">InterCity Express</a>) trains. On <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">ICE</a> trains, it is generally the case that reservations are recommended, but it is probably not really necessary for the ones just from Munich to Nuremberg. If you do want reservations for this leg, you would purchase them by searching Munich to Nuremberg on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">www.raileurope.com</a>), checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a ‘Eurail Global Pass’).<br /><br />For the remaining part of the connection (Nuremberg to Ansbach, Ansbach to Steinach, and Steinach to Rothenberg ob der Tauber), the trains do not need or even accept reservations, so the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a> is all you would need to board. For planning purposes, you can still use the route search feature on our homepage just to view schedules for these trains. When searching schedules to Rothenburg ob der Tauber, you would type 'Rothenberg O D Taube' in the field for the arrival city. Also, when you're just trying to access schedules for non-reservable trains, you would leave the 'I have a rail pass' button unchecked. To view the schedules, you would have to do one search for the full connection from 'Nuremberg' to 'Rothenberg O D Taube'.<br /><br /><b><u>Rothenburg ob der Tauber to Cologne with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />The fastest connections from Rothenburg ob der Tauber to Cologne take just over 4 hours in duration and involve 2 train changes along the way; once in Steinach and then once in Wurzburg.<br /><br />Trains from Rothenburg ob der Tauber to Steinach and Steinach to Wurzburg are regional trains, which do not accept reservations.

To purchase the reservations, you would search do a search from Wurzburg to Cologne on our homepage, check the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicate the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a ‘Eurail Global Pass’).<br /><br /><b><u>Cologne to Brussels with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />From Cologne to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/brussels" rel="nofollow">Brussels</a>, you would take a high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/thalys-7536" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/thalys-7536">Thalys</a> trains. These trains do require reservations as a supplement to a rail pass. For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations from Cologne to Brussels by searching the route on our homepage, checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a ‘Eurail Global Pass’).<br /><br /><b><u>Leuven to Brussels with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />Between Leuven and Brussels, you would take a direct IC train.

    Changed reply in topic of Confused about choosing which train ticket and seating is best for our trip. by Jeff to Hi Kim,<br /><br />What to purchase for your travels would depend on the specifics of the itinerary itself and various other factors. It is likely that you'd want to purchase a BritRail Pass, but the specific version of the pass would need to be determined by other factors. Therefore, if you’d like assistance determining the best option for an itinerary such as this, you would send an email to <a href="mailto:customercare@raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">customercare@raileurope.com</a>.<br /><br />In the meantime, you can check schedules by entering a 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>.<br /><br />To get to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/dublin" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Dublin</a>, you would take the ferry from Holyhead. The rail pass would not cover this ferry, so you would have to purchase tickets for it directly through the ferry company. The companies operating ferries on this route are 'Stena Line' and 'Irish Ferries'..
