    Changed reply in topic of If we purchase a Eurail Select Pass, do we have to pay reservation fees on high-speed trains? If so, what would be the fee from Malaga to Madrid & Madrid to Barcelona? by Jeff to Hi Richard,<br /><br />A rail pass just covers the ticket costs on trains. When applicable, reservations are a supplementary cost to a rail pass. Reservations are required on most high-speed trains, many international routes, and all overnight trains. In <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/europe-travel-guide/spain/indexhtml">Spain</a>, most major cities are connected almost exclusively by high-speed trains. Therefore, it is likely that reservations would be required for many of your trips there. Trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/malaga-to-madrid.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/popular-routes/malaga-to-madridhtml">Malaga to Madrid</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/madrid-to-barcelona.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Madrid to Barcelona</a> are high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/ave/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/european-trains/ave/how-to-bookhtml">AVE</a> trains that do require reservations.<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" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a>), entering a route, and indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling.<br /><br />As a workaround for an error on our website, when booking passholder reservations for trains in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Spain</a>, I would also recommend that you choose the specific hour for each set of departures you wish to view. For example, if you want to view trains departing during the 1 o'clock hour, adjust your preferred departure time specifically to '01 pm' rather than keeping it at '08 am' and clicking the 'Later Trains' button to view more options. This is because, due to an error, our website will only display the actual 'passholder' rates (reservations) for the first 4 or 5 departures in the results that turn up, with regard to searches for trains in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/europe-travel-guide/spain/indexhtml">Spain</a>.<br /><br />Generally, trains in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/europe-travel-guide/spain/indexhtml">Spain</a> can be reserved once within 90 days of an intended date of departure..

This is because, due to an error, our website will only display the actual 'passholder' rates (reservations) for the first 4 or 5 departures in the results that turn up, with regard to searches for trains in Spain.<br /><br /><b><u>Barcelona to Madrid</u></b><br /><br />Trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/barcelona-to-madrid.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Barcelona to Madrid</a> are <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/ave/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">AVE</a> trains, so reservations they do require reservations in addition to the rail pass.<br /><br /><b><u>Madrid-Segovia round-trip</u></b><br /><br />From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/madrid-to-segovia.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Madrid to Segovia</a>, there are Avant and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/alvia/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/european-trains/alvia/how-to-bookhtml">Alvia</a> trains. These trains depart out of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/train-station/madrid-chamartin-train-station.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Madrid Chamartin station</a> and the ride to Segovia only takes about 30 minutes. 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. Therefore, I would recommend that you purchase regular point-to-point tickets for this part of your trip.<br /><br />To purchase regular tickets (as opposed to 'passholder reservations'), you would click 'Find Train Tickets' on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a>), enter the route, and click 'No' where it asks "Are you traveling with a rail pass?".<br /><br /><b><u>Madrid-Toledo round-trip</u></b><br /><br />From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/madrid-to-toledo.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Madrid to Toledo</a>, there are Avant trains.

With that being the case, I would recommend that you purchase regular point-to-point tickets for this part of your trip, as well.<br /><br />Once again, you would purchase regular tickets by clicking 'Find Train Tickets' on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a>), entering the route, and clicking 'No' where it asks "Are you traveling with a rail pass?".<br /><br /><b><u>Madrid to Cordoba</u></b><br /><br />From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/madrid-to-cordoba.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Madrid to Cordoba</a>, there are <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/ave/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/european-trains/ave/how-to-bookhtml">AVE</a>, <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/alvia/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/european-trains/alvia/how-to-bookhtml">Alvia</a>, or <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/altaria/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/european-trains/altaria/how-to-bookhtml">Altaria</a> trains that all depart out of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/train-station/atocha-train-station.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Madrid Atocha station</a>.

    Changed reply in topic of Expected a smaller fee for a room on the night train from Rome to Munich. Shouldn't my rail pass cover this expense? Also, are the rooms separated by sex? How can I make sure there only women in my room? by Jeff to Hi Libby,<br /><br />Passholder reservation costs for sleeping compartments on night trains are (generally) more than for seat reservations on day trains, since it would be an actual sleeping space being reserved. These costs vary by train and are based on the type of compartment. For instance, space in a private single or double compartment will cost more to reserve than space in a shared 6 passenger couchette.<br /><br />With that said, there <u>may be an error on our site</u> preventing the actual passholder reservation costs from being quoted for the night train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/rome-to-munich.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/popular-routes/rome-to-munichhtml">Rome to Munich</a>. If you do a passholder reservation search for this route and you happen to see a rectangular yellow box that says 'Train Tickets Found' listed above the costs for the night train, that means our website is quoting the regular tickets for that train instead of the correct reservation costs. If you see this 'Train Tickets Found' box for the night train, then you would have to call us to purchase the passholder reservations. We can be reached at 1-800-622-8600. Our current hours are 8:00 AM to 6:30 PM CT Monday to Friday and 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM CT on Saturdays.<br /><br />Additionally, <u>due to another error</u>, our website may currently only be displaying the triple compartments for this particular night train, so you would also have to call us if you'd like to book another type of sleeping compartment on this train. The night train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/italy/rome/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/europe-travel-guide/italy/rome/indexhtml">Rome</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/germany/munich/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Munich</a> also carries single compartments, double compartments, 6 passenger couchettes, and 2nd class seats.<br /><br />On this train, only the double and triple compartments would be 'gender-specific'. The 6 passenger couchettes are not. Therefore, if it's just you traveling, you can book the triple in order be reserved in a compartment with only other women. If you were to book space in a 6 passenger couchette, the compartment would be mixed gender.<br /><br />When you pull up the results of your search, you would view the type of sleeping compartments being offered by clicking on the 'View' button for the costs that display for the night train..

    Changed reply in topic of First Europe trip - What should I purchase for Munich-Prague, Prague-Vienna, Vienna-Budapest, & Budapest-Dubrovnik? by Jeff to Hi Sona,<br /><br />If you were to purchase a rail pass, the pass you would need for that many countries is the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-global-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a>. To purchase the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-global-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a>, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-global-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-global-pass/indexhtml">https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-global-pass/index.html</a>.<br /><br />I would only consider the rail pass if you wish to travel in 1st class. In fact, the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-global-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a> is not even offered in 2nd class to passengers 28 and above. If you want to travel in 2nd class, you would just purchase regular tickets.<br /><br />When considering the option of a rail pass, you would also have to account for reservation costs.<br /><br /><b><u>Munich to Prague (with a rail pass)</u></b><br /><br />The fastest way from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/germany/munich/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Munich</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/czech-republic/prague/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Prague</a> is actually by bus.

Additionally, within this time frame, the Budapest-Split night train will only depart on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.<br /><br />If your travel falls between September 1st and October 28th, you would have to take an IC (InterCity) train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/budapest-to-zagreb.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Budapest to Zagreb</a>, where you would connect to a night train that will take you to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/split" rel="nofollow">Split</a>.<br /><br />From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/croatia/split/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Split</a>, you would reach <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/dubrovnik" rel="nofollow">Dubrovnik</a> by bus or another ferry. The bus takes about 3 to 4 hours in duration, and the ferry takes about 9 hours in duration. The bus and ferry are both not covered by any rail pass. Tickets for the bus can only be purchased directly through the bus company, and tickets for the ferry can only be purchased directly through the ferry company.<br /><br />Overnight trains require reservations, so you would need to have reservations whether you take the night train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/hungary/budapest/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/europe-travel-guide/hungary/budapest/indexhtml">Budapest</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/croatia/split/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/europe-travel-guide/croatia/split/indexhtml">Split</a> or the night train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/zagreb" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/zagreb">Zagreb</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/split" rel="nofollow">Split</a>.<br /><br />On the IC train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/budapest-to-zagreb.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/budapest-to-zagreb.html">Budapest to Zagreb</a>, reservations are recommended as a supplement to a rail pass.<br /><br />Only the night train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/zagreb-to-split.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/popular-routes/zagreb-to-splithtml">Zagreb to Split</a> is currently able to be reserved through our website.

For the full trip, you would just have to piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment. Therefore, you would do one search for the segment from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/budapest-to-zagreb.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/popular-routes/budapest-to-zagrebhtml">Budapest to Zagreb</a> and then another search to access the night train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/zagreb-to-split.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/popular-routes/zagreb-to-splithtml">Zagreb to Split</a>.<br /><br />Due to an error, when trying to access schedules and costs for overnight trains on <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/index.html">our site</a>, it has been necessary to adjust your preferred departure time by entering a time closer to the specific hour of the train's departure time. Therefore, when you go to enter the criteria of your search, you would want to choose some time in the early evening, like '06 pm' as your preferred departure time. By doing this, you will get the night train to display, and you can proceed to purchase your reservations.<br /><br />Even for when you do your search for the day train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/budapest-to-zagreb.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/popular-routes/budapest-to-zagrebhtml">Budapest to Zagreb</a>, I would recommend adjusting your preferred departure time to some time in the very early afternoon.<br /><br />Note: If you happen to need reservations for the night train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/hungary/budapest/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/hungary/budapest/index.html">Budapest</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/croatia/split/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/europe-travel-guide/croatia/split/indexhtml">Split</a>, you would have to call us. Again, however, this Friday is the last day that the Budapest-Split night train will operate this year, so that would mean you would have to call us today by 5:00pm CT to allow enough time for us to ship you the reservation document..

Therefore, if you wish to view departures at a different time of the day, please adjust your preferred departure time from the initial search screen.<br /><br />Generally, the trains between <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/munich" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Munich</a> and <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/salzburg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Salzburg</a> can be reserved once within 90-120 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br />The Eurail Select Pass is what is known as a 'flexipass'. A 'flexipass' allows for a set number of travel days that must be completed within a longer time frame (that longer time being 2 months in the case of the Eurail Select Pass).<br /><br />'Travel days' on a flexipass refer to how many separate days you plan on using your 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.<br /><br />For instance, if you were to take a day train from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/munich" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Munich</a> to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/salzburg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/city/salzburg">Salzburg</a> and then take a return train back to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/munich" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Munich</a> later in the same day, it would only use up one day of travel on your rail pass. In contrast, if you were to take that return train to Munich on the next day, it would use up 2 days of travel on your pass..
