    Changed reply in topic of Flexibility of Eurail Pass vs Swiss Pass by Jeff to For time in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/lucerne" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Lucerne</a>, the nearby ‘Mountaintop’ excursions include Mount Pilatus, Mount Titlis, Stanserhorn, and Mount Rigi.<b><u><br /></u></b><b><u><br /></u></b><b><u>Mount Pilatus</u></b><br /><br />The excursion to the Mount Pilatus summit starts with a steamer across Lake Lucerne from Lucerne to Alpnachstad. Once you get to Alpnachstad, you would make your ascent by taking the cog railway up to Mount Pilatus itself (Pilatus Kulm). After reaching Pilatus Kulm, you would descend via a cable car to Fräkmüntegg and a gondola from Fräkmüntegg to Kriens. To get back to Lucerne, you would take a bus from Kriens.<br /><br />With the Eurail Select Pass, you would be able to receive a 50% discount between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/lucerne" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/city/lucerne">Lucerne</a> and Mount Pilatus (Pilatus Kulm). To receive this discount, you would purchase the ‘Mountain Tops: Pilatus Alpnachstad or Kriens-Mt Pilatus/Eurail Pass’ option of the pass for '<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/mount-pilatus" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/pass/mount-pilatus">Mount Pilatus</a>' here: <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/mount-pilatus" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/pass/mount-pilatus">http://www.raileurope.com/pass/mount-pilatus</a>.<b><u><br /></u></b><b><u><br /></u></b><b><u>Mount Titlis</u></b><br /><br />The ascent to Mount Titlis starts in Engelberg (43 minute train ride from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/lucerne" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Lucerne</a>). It starts with a cable car from Engelberg to Trübsee, a second cable car from Trübsee to Stand, and then the famous 'Titlis Rotair' gondola from Stand to Klein Titlis. The 'Titlis Rotair' is the world's first 360 degree revolving gondola, offering spectacular panoramic views. Off the Klein Titlis station, you have access to the 'Titlis Cliff Walk', the 'Ice Flyer' chairlift, the Titlis Glacier Park, and a wondrous illuminated cave known as the 'Glacier Grotto'. The 'Titlis Cliff Walk' is a pedestrian suspension bridge (the highest suspension bridge in Europe) from where you can enjoy more incredible views. There is also a panorama restaurant.<br /><br />The train between Lucerne and Engelberg is covered by the Eurail Select Pass. For the cable cars between Engelberg and Titlis, the Eurail Select Pass would enable you to receive a discount of about 20-25%. To receive this discount, you would purchase the ‘Mountain Tops: Titlis Engelberg-Mt Titlis/Eurail Pass’ option of the pass for '<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/mount-titlis-8165" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Mount Titlis</a>' here: <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/mount-titlis-8165" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/pass/mount-titlis-8165">http://www.raileurope.com/pass/mount-titlis-8165</a> .<br /><br />This pass covers the round-trip between Engelberg and Klein Titlis, as well as a ride on the 'Ice Flyer' chairlift and entrance to the 'Glacier Grotto'.<b><u><br /></u></b><b><u><br /></u></b><b><u>Stanserhorn</u></b><br /><br />Until November 18th of 2018, you would also have the option of making the ascent to nearby (Mount) Stanserhorn. From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/lucerne" rel="nofollow">Lucerne</a>, you would take a short train to the nearby village of Stans. In Stans, you would board an 1893 vintage funicular to the intermediate station of Kälti. In Kälti, you would board the CabriO cable car to the Stanserhorn summit. The CabriO cable car is the world’s first double decker open-air cable car. From the summit, you would experience incredible views of the surrounding Alps and 10 different lakes. There is also a revolving restaurant called the Rondorama and a marmot park.<br /><br />The Eurail Select Pass is valid on the train between Lucerne and Stans. For the remaining part of the excursion (funicular from Stans to Kälti and the CabriO cable car from Kälti to Stanserhorn), however, the Eurail Select Pass would enable you to receive a discount of about 25%. To receive this discount, you would purchase the ‘Mountain Tops: Stanserhorn Stans – Stanserhorn for Eurail Pass Holder’ option of the pass for '<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/mount-stanserhorn" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Mount Stanserhorn</a>' here: <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/mount-stanserhorn" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/pass/mount-stanserhorn">http://www.raileurope.com/pass/mount-stanserhorn</a>.<b><u><br /></u></b><b><u><br /></u></b><b><u>Mount Rigi</u></b><br /><br />Between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/lucerne" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Lucerne</a> and nearby Mount Rigi, there are 2 different routes you can take.<br /><br />The route via Arth Goldau involves taking a train from Lucerne&nbsp;to Arth Goldau and the 'Arth-Rigi Bahn' cog railway from Arth Goldau to Rigi Kulm. For this first route, the Eurail Select Pass is only valid to cover you on the train from Lucerne to Arth Goldau, but it would enable you to receive a 50% discount on the 'Arth-Rigi Bahn' cog railway from Arth Goldau to Rigi Kulm. Tickets for the 'Arth-Rigi Bahn' can only be purchased locally. Just be sure to mention the Eurail Select Pass, so you can receive the 50% discount.<br /><br />The route via Vitznau involves taking a boat on Lake Lucerne from Lucerne to Vitznau, and the 'Vitznau-Rigi Bahn' cog railway from Vitznau to Rigi Kulm. The Eurail Select Pass would enable you to receive a 50% discount on both the Lake Lucerne boat and the 'Vitznau-Rigi Bahn' cog railway from Vitznau to Rigi Kulm. Tickets for the Lake Lucerne boat and the 'Vitznau-Rigi Bahn' both can only be purchased locally. Just be sure to mention the Eurail Select Pass, so you can receive the 50% discount. The boats on Lake Lucerne are operated by SGV..

    Changed reply in topic of Going from Luxembourg to London, which station in Brussels do I switch? by Jeff to Hi Bev,<br /><br />While our website only reflects Nord as the arrival station in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/brussels" rel="nofollow">Brussels</a>, you can rest assured that the trains do also stop at the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/brussels-midi" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/place/brussels-midi">Midi station</a>. For your reference, trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/luxembourg-brussels" rel="nofollow">Luxembourg to Brussels</a> arrive into the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/brussels-midi" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/place/brussels-midi">Midi station</a> just about 10 minutes after they are scheduled to be arriving into the Nord station.<br /><br />At the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/brussels-midi" rel="nofollow">Brussels Midi station</a>, you would just want to allow yourself at least 20 minutes to switch to the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow">Eurostar</a> train to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow">London</a>.<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>.

    Changed reply in topic of No option for night train from Lisbon to Madrid by Jeff to Hi Tzufit,<br /><br />'Turista Class' on the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/lisbon-madrid" rel="nofollow">Lisbon-Madrid</a> night train (the Lusitania) refers to a seat with no bed. Other than seats, this night train only carries single compartments, double compartments, and 'T4' compartments (shared compartments for 4 passengers).<br /><br />Due to an error, it may currently be the case that our website is only able to offer a maximum of two of these accommodation types. If you're interested in one of the accommodation types that isn't shown, you would send an email to <a href="mailto:customercare@raileurope.com" rel="nofollow">customercare@raileurope.com</a>. The 'Turista' seat would be found under the 2nd class column when you pull up the fares for this train. To view the type of compartments offered on an overnight train, you would click ‘Fare details’ after clicking on the fare itself..

Reservations for trains in Portugal can only be purchased at the CP offices in the stations. The cost would only be a small cost in addition to the ticket. When you go to purchase your reservation, just be sure to mention that you already have the ticket..

    Changed reply in topic of Luggage limitations on TGV? Storage available for luggage near the airport? by Jeff to Hi Shah,<br /><br />Trains (including <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow">TGV</a> trains) provide sufficient space to store luggage. There is space between seats or in the overhead racks. In many cases, there is also space at the ends of each train car. A typical amount of luggage per person is 2 large items, plus one smaller item. Regarding luggage, the general rule is that you can take on board as many items as you can carry. Luggage is the responsibility of the passengers.<br /><br />The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/paris-charles-de-gaulle-airport-5748" rel="nofollow">Paris CDG Airport</a> itself does have a left luggage service located in Terminal 2 near the train platforms. I'm sorry, however, we do not have information about costs for storing luggage. The service is listed as being available 7 days a week from 6am to 9:30pm..

    Changed reply in topic of Do the bonuses for boats use up a day of travel on my Eurail Global Pass? by Jeff to Hi Catherine,<br /><br />'Travel days' are not applicable to the 'consecutive' (continuous) passes, since these passes are for unlimited travel within the time frame allowed. There is no 10 day consecutive/continuous option of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow">Eurail Global Pass</a>, but there is a 15 day consecutive/continuous option.<br /><br />'Travel days' only apply to flexi passes.<br /><br />With regard to the flexi versions of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow">Eurail Global Pass</a>:<br /><br />For any bonus that's free, it would use up a 'travel day' on the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow">Eurail Global Pass</a>.<br /><br />If it's a discounted bonus, it generally would use up a 'travel day' on the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow">Eurail Global Pass</a>.<br /><br />The only boats free with a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow">Eurail Global Pass</a> are the BLS boat services on Lake Brienz and Lake Thun. Therefore, to use your <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880">Eurail Global Pass</a> on these boats would require the use of a travel day.<br /><br />All other boats, including boats on Lake Lucerne and Lake Geneva, are 50% off with a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880">Eurail Global Pass</a>. Since such boats are not completely covered by the pass, a travel day would not be used up.<br /><br />The 'KD German Rhine Line' cruises on the Rhine are discounted 20% with a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880">Eurail Global Pass</a>. Therefore, this would not require the use of a travel day..

    Changed reply in topic of On the Glacier Express, do I have to pay extra with my Eurail Pass or just reservation fees? by Jeff to Hi Catherine,<br /><br />Eurail Passes now cover the full route of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/glacier-express-7528" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/glacier-express-7528">Glacier Express</a>, so there is no longer an additional supplement required other than the reservations. The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/glacier-express-7528" rel="nofollow">Glacier Express</a> is a train that requires reservations as a supplement to a rail pass. Generally, passholder reservations are able to be purchased on our website; however, the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/glacier-express-7528" rel="nofollow">Glacier Express</a> is not able to be reserved there at this time. Currently, if you'd like to book passholder reservations for the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/glacier-express-7528" rel="nofollow">Glacier Express</a>, you would have to send an email to <a href="mailto:customercare@raileurope.com" rel="nofollow">customercare@raileurope.com</a>..

    Changed reply in topic of Flexibility of Eurail Pass vs Swiss Pass by Jeff to Hi Hans,<br /><br />Your best option really depends on the specifics of what you intend to do. However, since your itinerary includes <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/germany" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/germany">Germany</a>, you probably will want to include <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/germany" rel="nofollow">Germany</a> on your rail pass as well. That would mean purchasing 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 option of the Eurail Select Pass</a> to include <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/switzerland" rel="nofollow">Switzerland</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/germany" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/germany">Germany</a>. Any pass that includes <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/germany" rel="nofollow">Germany</a> also covers travel to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/salzburg" rel="nofollow">Salzburg</a> via the rail line from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/munich" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/munich">Munich</a>.<br /><br />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 />Multi-country 'Eurail' Passes that include <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/switzerland" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/switzerland">Switzerland</a> will still provide for discounts on the various mountain railways in and around <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/interlaken" rel="nofollow">Interlaken</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/lucerne" rel="nofollow">Lucerne</a>, which I'll outline below..
