    Changed reply in topic of Strikes in July 2018 from Paris to Aix en Provence? by Jeff to Hi Mark,<br /><br />The recent striking in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/france-10" rel="nofollow">France</a> is not supposed to carry over into July. The trains between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow">Paris</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/aix-en-provence" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/aix-en-provence">Aix en Provence</a> should not be affected by striking in July.<br /><br />You would purchase tickets by searching a route under 'BOOK TRAIN TICKETS' on the homepage of our website, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>. For schedules from Paris to Aix en Provence to display, you would have to type 'Aix en Provence TGV' into the field for the arrival city. Trains from Paris to Aix en Provence are <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow">TGV</a> high-speed trains that arrive into the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/avignon-tgv" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/place/avignon-tgv">Aix en Provence TGV station</a>.<br /><br />Generally, these trains can be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure date..

    Changed reply in topic of "Fare Requested not available" with my BritRail SouthWest Pass - HELP!! by Jeff to Hi Gaynor,<br /><br />You can actually just disregard that error message. Rest assured, your rail pass is valid. The issue is actually that the trains you're requesting either do not accept reservations or that the reservations can only be purchased locally. However, that error message is completely misplaced there and fails to communicate that. We are very sorry for the confusion.<br /><br />For trains in the UK, passholder reservations are only able to be purchased locally and are only recommended on trains that take over 2 hours. Direct trains between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow">London</a> and Cornwall take 3 to 5 hours, so reservations are recommended on these. You can purchase the reservations by going to the ticket window in the station and mentioning that you have the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-south-west-pass-7970" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-south-west-pass-7970">BritRail SouthWest Pass</a>.<br /><br />In the meantime, you can still use the route search feature under 'Book Train Tickets' on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>) just to view schedules..

    Changed reply in topic of Wilhelmshaven to Berlin - Sunday Transportation Options by Jeff to Hi Wendy,<br /><br />On Sundays, the fastest connections from Wilhelmshaven to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/berlin" rel="nofollow">Berlin</a> take about 5 hours.<br /><br />Wilhelmshaven does have a rail station, but it doesn't appear as though trains from there operate on Sundays. Therefore, you would first need to take a bus from Wilhelmshaven to Varel. The bus ride can take anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes in duration. A rail pass would not cover the bus, so you would just have to pay to board locally.<br /><br />In Varel, you would switch to a train to Oldenburg. In Oldenburg, you would switch to an <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/german-trains-intercity-ic-7581" rel="nofollow">IC</a> or <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534">ICE</a> train to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/hanover" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/hanover">Hanover</a>. In <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/hanover" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/hanover">Hanover</a>, you would switch to an <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow">ICE</a> that will take you to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/berlin" rel="nofollow">Berlin</a>. Any rail pass that includes <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/germany" rel="nofollow">Germany</a> does cover these trains. However, on the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534">ICE</a> trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/hanover" rel="nofollow">Hanover</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/berlin" rel="nofollow">Berlin</a>, reservations would just highly recommended in addition to the rail pass. For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/hanover-berlin" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/hanover-berlin">Hanover to Berlin</a> by searching the route on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow">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.<br /><br />For the other segments (Varel to Oldenburg and Oldenburg to Hanover), reservations are not necessary, so the rail pass is all you would need to board.<br /><br />For planning purposes, you can check schedules for the non-reserved section by doing one search all the way through from Varel to Hanover (if you try to search Varel to Oldenburg and Oldenburg to Hanover individually, the Varel to Oldenburg will not display).<br /><br />If you'd like to inquire about specific bus schedules from Wilhelmshaven to Varel, you can try searching online, or else you can call us at 1-800-622-8600. Our current hours are 8:00 AM to 6:30 PM CT Monday to Friday..

    Changed reply in topic of Client has 7 days for NIN plus 2 days for travel by Jeff to Hi Marilyn,<br /><br />For travel from Hole to Lillehammer, your client's best option would be to go back to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/oslo" rel="nofollow">Oslo</a>. He would then do a round-trip between Oslo and Lillehammer.<br /><br />For the requested itinerary, I would recommend purchasing the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/norway-pass-5924" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/norway-pass-5924">Eurail Norway Pass</a> in addition to the 'Eurail Passholder Myrdal-Flåm-Gudvangen-Voss' option of another pass called the 'Norway in a Nutshell'.<br /><br />The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/norway-pass-5924" rel="nofollow">Eurail Norway Pass</a> covers your clients for their round-trip between Oslo and Lillehammer, their train from Oslo to Myrdal (Bergen Railway), and their train from Bergen back to Oslo (Bergen Railway).<br /><br />The 'Eurail Passholder Myrdal-Flåm-Gudvangen-Voss' option of the 'Norway in a Nutshell' covers their train from Myrdal to Flåm (Flåm Railway), the ferry from Flåm to Gudvangen, and the bus from Gudvangen to Voss. To purchase the 'Norway in a Nutshell', you would have to call us. We can be reached at 1-800-622-8600. Our current hours are 8:00 AM to 6:30 PM CT Monday to Friday.<br /><br />The trains on the Bergen Railway from Oslo to Myrdal and Bergen to Oslo will require reservations, as will trains on the Flåm Railway from Myrdal to Flåm. The reservations would be arranged when you call us.<br /><br />When you call, you can also include the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/norway-pass-5924" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/norway-pass-5924">Eurail Norway Pass</a> in your order.<br /><br />I would also recommend inquiring about our city passes and tours for <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/oslo" rel="nofollow">Oslo</a>, including the 'Private Oslo &amp; Viking Ship Museum Walking Tour'..

    Changed reply in topic of How to get from Oslo to Hole??? How long? by Jeff to Hi Marilyn,<br /><br />We don't have any information about car rentals, but I'm sure it'd be possible.<br /><br />Hønefoss is close to Hole and does have a rail station, but <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/oslo" rel="nofollow">Oslo</a> itself is about the same driving distance (only about 23 miles away). Therefore, I'd say your client's best option to get between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/oslo" rel="nofollow">Oslo</a> and Hole would just be to drive, or perhaps see if there are local buses.<br /><br />If he connected through Hønefoss, that would involve a drive about the same distance, in addition to the train ride..

    Changed reply in topic of Assistance with luggage? Traveling senior citizen luggage dilemma, on and off train by Jeff to Actual official porter service is no longer offered at stations in Europe, but you should still be able to request luggage assistance from attendants at the stations in Rome and Nice. You can do so before departure or while on board the train.<br /><br />The Lecce station is smaller, but you still may be able to request assistance. I would recommend inquiring at the station before you board your train to Lecce.<br /><br />For general information about the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/rome-termini-central-station" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/place/rome-termini-central-station">Rome Termini station</a> (the main station in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/rome" rel="nofollow">Rome</a>), you can refer here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/rome-termini-central-station" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/place/rome-termini-central-station">https://www.raileurope.com/place/rome-termini-central-station</a>.<br /><br />For general information about the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/roma-tiburtina" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/place/roma-tiburtina">Rome Tiburtina station</a> (another main station in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/rome" rel="nofollow">Rome</a>), you can refer here:<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/roma-tiburtina" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/place/roma-tiburtina">https://www.raileurope.com/place/roma-tiburtina</a>.<br /><br />For general information about the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/nice-ville" rel="nofollow">Nice Ville station</a> (the main station in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/nice" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/nice">Nice</a>), you can refer here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/nice-ville" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/place/nice-ville">https://www.raileurope.com/place/nice-ville</a>.<br /><br />We do not have a page for the station in Lecce..
