These are high-speed TGV trains. The method ticketing is communicated at the first step of the checkout process when placing an order.

    Changed reply in topic of Europe travel confusions by Jeff to Hi Tasneem,<br /><br />What to purchase for an itinerary depends on the specific itinerary itself and various other factors. Generally, this can only be determined once you decide on an itinerary. If you ever need assistance determining the best option for an itinerary, you would call us. We can be reached at 1-800-622-8600. Our current hours are 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM CT Monday to Friday.<br /><br />In the meantime, you can check rail pass costs on our website.<br /><br />For the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/german-rail-pass-5913" rel="nofollow">German Rail Pass</a>, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/german-rail-pass-5913" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/german-rail-pass-5913">https://www.raileurope.com/pass/german-rail-pass-5913</a><br /><br />For the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-pass-5934" rel="nofollow">Swiss Travel Pass</a>, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-pass-5934" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-pass-5934">https://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-pass-5934</a><br /><br /><b><u>Lucerne to Augsburg</u></b><br /><br />Connections from Lucerne to Augsburg take about 5.5 to 6 hours and involve 2 train changes along the way; once in Basel and then once in either Mannheim or Karlsruhe.<br /><br />A <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-pass-5934" rel="nofollow">Swiss Travel Pass</a> would cover from Lucerne to Basel and then a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/german-rail-pass-5913" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/german-rail-pass-5913">German Rail Pass</a> would cover from Basel to Augsburg.<br /><br />Of these trains, reservations would only be recommended on the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow">ICE</a> trains from Mannheim to Augsburg. On the other trains, the rail passes are all that would be needed to board.<br /><br /><b><u>Salzburg to Prague</u></b><br /><br />Neither a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/german-rail-pass-5913" rel="nofollow">German Rail Pass</a> nor a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-pass-5934" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-pass-5934">Swiss Travel Pass</a> would cover the most direct routes from Salzburg to Prague. However, a bonus of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/german-rail-pass-5913" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/german-rail-pass-5913">German Rail Pass</a> is that it covers the IC Buses that go from Munich to Prague. With Salzburg being right at the border, the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/german-rail-pass-5913" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/german-rail-pass-5913">German Rail Pass</a> would also cover the rail line between Salzburg and Munich. Therefore, you could use the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/german-rail-pass-5913" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/german-rail-pass-5913">German Rail Pass</a> to be covered on the specific route from Salzburg to Prague that involves taking a train from Salzburg to Munich and then switching to an IC Bus from Munich to Prague.<br /><br />The IC Bus from Munich to Prague would just require reservations, as a supplement to the rail pass. Trains from Salzburg to Munich are <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/railjet-austria-and-beyond-7543" rel="nofollow">Railjet</a> trains on which reservations are recommended but not required.<br /><br />You can inquire about booking the reservations when you call us..

    Changed reply in topic of How to get from Naples Airport to Sorrento by Jeff to Hi Steven,<br /><br /><a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/sorrento" rel="nofollow">Sorrento</a> is located only on a private rail line called the 'Circumvesuviana Railway'. This rail line runs between the Naples Piazza Garibaldi station and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/sorrento" rel="nofollow">Sorrento</a>. Since these trains are privately owned and operated, the tickets can only be purchased locally when you're there. Conveniently, the Piazza Garibaldi station is located in the lower level of the same building as the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/napoli-centrale" rel="nofollow">Naples Centrale station</a>, which is considered the main rail station in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/naples" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/naples">Naples</a>. The Circumvesuviana trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/naples" rel="nofollow">Naples</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/sorrento" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/sorrento">Sorrento</a> depart every 30 minutes throughout the day, and the ride takes 55-68 minutes.<br /><br />The Naples Capodichino Airport does not have a rail station. To commute from the airport to the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/napoli-centrale" rel="nofollow">Centrale rail station</a>, you would take a bus. The buses depart twice every hour and the ride takes about 20 minutes. You would pay to board the bus locally upon arrival..

    Changed reply in topic of Which rail pass for Paris to Geneva, Geneva-Chamonix day-trip, Geneva-Montreux day-trip, Geneva-Zermatt, Zermatt-Matterhorn, Zermatt-St Moritz, and St Moritz to Zurich by Jeff to Hi Navi,<br /><br />For the itinerary you laid out, I would recommend the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-select-pass-2-countries-8039" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">2 country option of the Eurail Select Pass</a> to include <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/guides-pays/article/france-10" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">France</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/guides-pays/article/switzerland" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Switzerland</a>. For the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-select-pass-2-countries-8039" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/pass/eurail-select-pass-2-countries-8039">2 country Eurail Select Pass</a>, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-select-pass-2-countries-8039" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/pass/eurail-select-pass-2-countries-8039">https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-select-pass-2-countries-8039</a>.<br /><br /><b><u>Paris to Geneva</u></b><br /><br />Trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/paris-geneva" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris to Geneva</a> are <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-lyria-7535" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TGV Lyria</a> high-speed trains. With a Eurail Select Pass that includes <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/guides-pays/article/france-10" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">France</a>, you would be eligible to receive a discounted rate called the 'Passholder 2' on a <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> from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/paris-geneva" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris to Geneva</a>.<br /><br />For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase these reservations 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 Select Pass 2 Countries’).<br /><br />When you pull up the results of this search, be sure to look for the actual direct trains, which are the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-lyria-7535" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TGV Lyria</a> trains.<br /><br />To verify that you're being quoted the correct rate, you would click 'Fare details' after you click on the cost itself. Technically, the fare you're eligible for is called the 'Passholder 2' rate, but it will be labeled '1st Cl Pass 1' or '2nd Cl Pass 1'.<br /><br />These rates can sell out quickly, so it is recommended that the passholder reservations be purchased as soon as possible. Generally, these trains can be booked once within 120 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br /><b><u>Geneva-Chamonix</u></b><br /><br />Connections from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/geneva" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Geneva</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/chamonix" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Chamonix</a> take about 3 hours and involve 2 train changes along the way; once in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/martigny" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Martigny</a> and then once in Vallorcine. The segments from Martigny to Vallorcine and Vallorcine to Chamonix represent the famed Mont Blanc Express scenic route.<br /><br />These trains do not accept reservations, so the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-select-pass-2-countries-8039" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/pass/eurail-select-pass-2-countries-8039">2 country Eurail Select Pass</a> is all you'll need to board.<br /><br />For planning purposes, you can use the route search feature under 'Book Train Tickets' on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a>) just to view schedules for these trains. When checking schedules for this route, you would just break up your search once in Vallorcine. Therefore, you would do one search from Geneva to Vallorcine and then another search from Vallorcine to Chamonix.<br /><br />You would then follow the same route for your return back to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/geneva" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/geneva">Geneva</a>.<br /><br /><b><u>Geneva-Montreux</u></b><br /><br />Direct trains between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/geneva" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Geneva</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/montreux" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Montreux</a> depart twice every hour throughout the day.

To reach Gornergrat, you would take the Gornergratbahn cogwheel. The Gornergratbahn is not covered by Eurail Passes. To be covered on the Gornergratbahn you would purchase the 'Mountain Tops: Gornergrat Zermatt to Gornergrat Full Fare Ticket' option (Low season, Mid-season, or High-season depending on when you'll be taking the trip) of the pass for '<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/mount-gornergrat" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Mount Gornergrat</a>' here: <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/mount-gornergrat" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/pass/mount-gornergrat">http://www.raileurope.com/pass/mount-gornergrat</a> .<br /><br />The other options is the gondola and cable cars up to Klein Matterhorn/Glacier Paradise.

This pass also includes entrance through the ice tunnel to the Glacier Palace and access to the viewing platform for more views of the Matterhorn and surrounding Alps.<br /><br /><b><u>Zermatt to St Moritz</u></b><br /><br />If you already have tickets for the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/glacier-express-7528" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/glacier-express-7528">Glacier Express</a> from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/zermatt-st-moritz" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Zermatt to St Moritz</a>, then there would not be need use your <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-select-pass-2-countries-8039" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/pass/eurail-select-pass-2-countries-8039">2 country Eurail Select Pass</a> for this segment of your itinerary.

    Changed reply in topic of Which rail pass for Paris to Geneva, Geneva-Chamonix day-trip, Geneva-Montreux day-trip, Geneva-Zermatt, Zermatt-Matterhorn, Zermatt-St Moritz, and St Moritz to Zurich by Jeff to Hi Navi,<br /><br />For the itinerary you laid out, I would recommend the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-select-pass-2-countries-8039" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">2 country option of the Eurail Select Pass</a> to include France and Switzerland.

With a Eurail Select Pass that includes France, you would be eligible to receive a discounted rate called the 'Passholder 2' on a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-lyria-7535" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-lyria-7535">TGV Lyria</a> from Paris to Geneva.<br /><br />For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase these reservations 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 Select Pass 2 Countries’).<br /><br />When you pull up the results of this search, be sure to look for the actual direct trains, which are the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-lyria-7535" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TGV Lyria</a> trains.<br /><br />To verify that you're being quoted the correct rate, you would click 'Fare details' after you click on the cost itself.
