    Changed reply in topic of Eurail Global Pass to cover Paris-Zurich, Zurich-Munich, Munich-Salzburg, Salzburg-Vienna, Vienna-Budapest, Budapest-Prague, Prague-Berlin, Berlin-Amsterdam, Amsterdam-Brussels, Brussels-London by Jeff to Hi Rachael, <br /><br />For the requested itinerary, your best option would be the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880">Eurail Global Pass</a>. For this pass, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880">https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880</a>.<br /><br />Rail passes only cover ticket costs for trains running ‘inter-city’ (between different cities) within the country or countries included on the pass. When applicable, reservations are a supplementary cost to a rail pass. If you were to purchase regular point-to-point tickets (instead of a rail pass), the value of any necessary reservations would still be considered/embedded into those costs. Therefore, a rail pass still often works out to be the most economical option for travelers taking multiple trains while in Europe. It just depends on the itinerary.<br /><br />Reservations are required on most high-speed trains, many international routes, and all overnight trains. In much of Western Europe, most major cities are connected almost exclusively by high-speed trains. Therefore, it is often the case that reservations are required when traveling in certain Western European countries. With regard to your specific itinerary, I'll outline below:<br /><br /><b><u>Paris to Zurich</u></b><br /><br />From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/zurich" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/zurich">Zurich</a>, you would take a high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-lyria-7535" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/tgv-lyria-7535">TGV Lyria</a> train. <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-lyria-7535" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TGV Lyria</a> trains do require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass. For travel with a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880">Eurail Global Pass</a>, you would purchase passholder reservations from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/paris-zurich" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris to Zurich</a> by searching the route on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">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'). When you pull up the results of your search, be sure to locate the actual direct trains.<br /><br /><b><u>Zurich to Munich</u></b><br /><br />From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/zurich" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Zurich</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/munich" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/munich">Munich</a>, there are EC (EuroCity) trains taking about 4.5 hours in duration, but your pass would also be valid on buses (IC Buses) that take only about 3hr43min.<br /><br />On the EC trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/zurich" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Zurich</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/munich" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/munich">Munich</a>, reservations are not required but they are recommended. For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations for the trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/zurich-munich" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Zurich to Munich</a> by searching the route on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">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 />It may also be the case that only one departure is able to be shown for each search you do.

To get around these issues and view more departures, you would need to adjust to the specific hour of the day for which you want to view schedules when you enter the criteria of your search.

    Changed reply in topic of Eurail Global Pass to cover Paris-Zurich, Zurich-Munich, Munich-Salzburg, Salzburg-Vienna, Vienna-Budapest, Budapest-Prague, Prague-Berlin, Berlin-Amsterdam, Amsterdam-Brussels, Brussels-London by Jeff to Hi Rachael, <br /><br />For the requested itinerary, your best option would be the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880">Eurail Global Pass</a>. For this pass, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880">https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880</a>.<br /><br />Rail passes only cover ticket costs for trains running ‘inter-city’ (between different cities) within the country or countries included on the pass. When applicable, reservations are a supplementary cost to a rail pass. If you were to purchase regular point-to-point tickets (instead of a rail pass), the value of any necessary reservations would still be considered/embedded into those costs. Therefore, a rail pass still often works out to be the most economical option for travelers taking multiple trains while in Europe. It just depends on the itinerary.<br /><br />Reservations are required on most high-speed trains, many international routes, and all overnight trains. In much of Western Europe, most major cities are connected almost exclusively by high-speed trains. Therefore, it is often the case that reservations are required when traveling in certain Western European countries. With regard to your specific itinerary, I'll outline below:<br /><br /><b><u>Paris to Zurich</u></b><br /><br />From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/zurich" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/zurich">Zurich</a>, you would take a high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-lyria-7535" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/tgv-lyria-7535">TGV Lyria</a> train. <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-lyria-7535" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TGV Lyria</a> trains do require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass.

In addition to that, the 'Later Trains' button does not function. To get around these issues and view more departures, you would need to adjust to the specific hour of the day for which you want to view schedules when you enter the criteria of your search. For example, if you want to view trains departing after 10am, click '10AM'.<br /><br /><b><u>Munich to Salzburg</u></b><br /><br />From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/munich" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Munich</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/salzburg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Salzburg</a>, there are <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/railjet-austria-and-beyond-7543" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Railjet</a> trains and Meridian trains.<br /><br />On the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/railjet-austria-and-beyond-7543" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Railjet</a> trains, reservations are recommended as a supplement to the rail pass.

The train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow">London</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris">Paris</a> is a high-speed train called the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514">Eurostar</a>. The closest rail station to Vimy Ridge is <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/arras" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/arras">Arras</a>. A connection from Caen to Arras would involve going back down to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow">Paris</a> first and changing trains there to continue on to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/arras" rel="nofollow">Arras</a>. The trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/paris-arras" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/paris-arras">Paris to Arras</a> are high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537">TGV</a>&nbsp;trains.<br /><br />A connection from Arras to Ieper only takes about 2 hours in duration but involves changing trains twice along the way; once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/lille" rel="nofollow">Lille</a> and then once in Kortrijk. However, schedules for trains from Lille to Kortrijk and Kortrijk to Ieper are not able to be viewed on our website. Therefore, you would inquire about schedules for these particular trains when you call us.<br /><br />The most feasible connection from Ieper to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/venice" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/venice">Venice</a> would take about 16 hours in duration and involves 3 train changes along the way; once in Kortrijk, once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/lille" rel="nofollow">Lille</a>, and then once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/dijon" rel="nofollow">Dijon</a>. The segment from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/dijon-venice" rel="nofollow">Dijon to Venice</a> would be on an overnight train. Once again, the schedules for trains from Ieper to Kortrijk and Kortrijk to Lille are not able to able to be viewed on our website, so you would inquire about these schedules when you call us. The train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/lille-dijon" rel="nofollow">Lille to Dijon</a> would be a high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow">TGV</a> train.<br /><br />There are then direct high-speed trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/venice-rome" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/venice-rome">Venice to Rome</a>. For the connections involving multiple train changes en route, you would piece together the route by doing a separate search for each segment.<br /><br />Trains in this part of Europe can generally only be booked within 90 days of an intended date of departure..
