    Changed reply in topic of London to Dijon & then Dijon to Amsterdam. Should I buy a rail pass or tickets? by Jeff to Hi Cynthia,<br /><br />Please note, there is no rail pass that combines <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/england" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">England</a> with countries on the mainland continent of Europe. Instead of tickets, however, you could purchase a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/france-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/france-pass/index.html">France Rail Pass</a> for 2 days. Even though this pass doesn't include <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/england" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">England</a> or the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/benelux" rel="nofollow">Benelux</a> countries it would still enable you to receive discounted 'Passholder' rates on the trains out of <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow">London</a> and into <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/amsterdam-264" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Amsterdam</a>, as I'll explain below.<br /><br />For the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/france-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/rail-tickets-passes/france-pass/indexhtml">France Rail Pass</a>, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/france-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/rail-tickets-passes/france-pass/indexhtml">https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/france-pass/index.html</a>.<br /><br />All of the trains you'll be taking will require reservations in addition to the pass, but his option still may work out to be more economical than getting regular tickets for the same trips.<br /><br />For travel with a rail pass, you would 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 (i.e. a 'France Rail Pass').<br /><br /><b><u>London to Dijon</u></b><br /><br />A connection from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow">London</a> to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/dijon" rel="nofollow">Dijon</a> takes about 6 hours in duration and involves changing trains in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris</a> along the way. Trains from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow">London</a> to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris</a> are high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/eurostar/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/eurostar/how-to-book.html">Eurostar</a> trains, and trains from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/paris">Paris</a> to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/dijon" rel="nofollow">Dijon</a> are high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/tgv/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/european-trains/tgv/how-to-bookhtml">TGV</a> or <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/tgv-lyria/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/european-trains/tgv-lyria/how-to-bookhtml">TGV Lyria</a> trains.<br /><br />When purchasing passholder reservations for this connection, you would just have to break up your search once in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris</a>. Therefore, you would do one search for trains from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/discover-europe/article/london-paris" rel="nofollow">London to Paris</a> and another search for connecting trains from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/discover-europe/article/paris-dijon" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/discover-europe/article/paris-dijon">Paris to Dijon</a>.<br /><br />To ensure that it is the 'passholder' reservation fees that you're being quoted, you would click the 'View' button under the costs for your preferred departure. After you click the 'View' button, a box will expand out underneath. In this box, you would refer to the option(s) listed under where it says 'Ticket Flexibility' and click 'Read More'. When you click 'Read More', the name of the fare listed should be 'Eurostar Passholder III' for the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/eurostar/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/european-trains/eurostar/how-to-bookhtml">Eurostar</a> trains from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/london">London</a> to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris</a> and 'TGV: French Day Train Passholder' for the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/tgv/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TGV</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/tgv-lyria/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/european-trains/tgv-lyria/how-to-bookhtml">TGV Lyria</a> trains from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris</a> to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/dijon" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/dijon">Dijon</a>.

    Changed reply in topic of London to Dijon & then Dijon to Amsterdam. Should I buy a rail pass or tickets? by Jeff to Hi Cynthia,<br /><br />Please note, there is no rail pass that combines <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/england" rel="nofollow">England</a> with countries on the mainland continent of Europe. Instead of tickets, however, you could purchase a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/france-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">France Rail Pass</a> for 2 days. Even though this pass doesn't include <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/england" rel="nofollow">England</a> or the Benelux countries it would still enable you to receive discounted 'Passholder' rates on the trains out of London and into <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/amsterdam-264" rel="nofollow">Amsterdam</a>, as I'll explain below.<br /><br />For the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/france-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/rail-tickets-passes/france-pass/indexhtml">France Rail Pass</a>, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/france-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/rail-tickets-passes/france-pass/indexhtml">https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/france-pass/index.html</a>.<br /><br />All of the trains you'll be taking will require reservations in addition to the pass, but his option still may work out to be more economical than getting regular tickets for the same trips.<br /><br />For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations by clicking the 'Seat Reservations' tab on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>), entering a route, and indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a 'France Rail Pass').<br /><br /><b><u>London to Dijon</u></b><br /><br />A connection from London to Dijon takes about 6 hours in duration and involves changing trains in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow">Paris</a> along the way.

Therefore, depending on which is most convenient for you, you could book these reservations to either Levanto, Monterosso, or La Spezia.<br /><br />With regard to trains in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/italy" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Italy</a>, passholder reservations are currently not able to be booked on our website. If you need to purchase reservations for a train in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/italy" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Italy</a> you would instead have to call us.

These trains do not accept reservations, so you can just hop on with your rail pass. If you'd rather not squander a 'travel day' of your pass on these short trips, you can just purchase a ticket locally.<br /><br /><b><u>Cinque Terre to Lucca</u></b><br /><br />To get from the Cinque Terre to Lucca, you can just take a connection of regional trains via La Spezia and Viareggio. These trains do not accept reservations, so you can just hop on using your Eurail Select Pass.<br /><br />There are also direct IC trains from to Viareggio from Levanto, Monterosso, or La Spezia, but these would require reservations. Therefore, you might just want to stick with the regional trains.<br /><br />By breaking up your search in Viareggio, you can view schedules on our website from either Levanto to Lucca, Monterosso to Lucca, or La Spezia to Lucca (i.e. one search from Levanto to Viareggio and then another from Viareggio to Lucca).<br /><br /><b><u>Lucca to Florence</u></b><br /><br />Direct trains from Lucca to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/florence" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Florence</a> are regional trains that do not accept reservations. Therefore, the Eurail Select Pass is all you would need to board. For planning purposes, you can still use your website to view schedules for these trains..

    Changed reply in topic of Best Options for England, Amsterdam, and Paris by Jeff to Hi Jordan,<br /><br />There is no single rail pass that combines the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/united-kingdom" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/united-kingdom">UK</a> with countries on the mainland continent of Europe.<br /><br />To cover your travel in the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/united-kingdom" rel="nofollow">UK</a>, your most economical would be a pass called the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894">BritRail London Plus Pass</a>.

They depart once every 15 minutes throughout the day (taking about 15 minutes from terminals 1, 2 and 3 to Paddington and 23 minutes from terminal 5 to Paddington).<br /><br /><u><b>London to Hastings</b></u><br /><br />Between London and Hastings there are direct trains operating frequently throughout the day. It doesn't appear as though these schedules display on our website at the time, but the ones departing out of the Victoria station in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/london">London</a> leave hourly throughout the day, and the ride takes about 2 hours. There also hourly trains departing out of the Charing Cross station in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow">London</a>, which take 1.5 to 2 hours to get to Hastings. The <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894">BritRail London Plus Pass</a> does cover you on these trains.<br /><br /><b><u>Hastings to Reading</u></b><br /><br />Connections from Hastings to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/reading" rel="nofollow">Reading</a> require going back through <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/london">London</a> and changing trains. Once again, it doesn't appear as though these schedules display on our website at the time, for either of the segments.<br /><br />For the segment from Hastings to London, the same frequencies apply that I mentioned above (arriving back into either the Victoria or Charing Cross stations).<br /><br />From London to Reading, trains depart several times every hour out of the Paddington station. Some trains from London Paddington take about 30 minutes, while some can take up to 1 hour.<br /><br />The <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894" rel="nofollow">BritRail London Plus Pass</a> is valid to cover you on these trains.<br /><br />To commute from the Victoria station to the Paddington station, you would take the Circle Line of the London Tube. The Tube ride from Victoria to Paddington takes about 17 minutes.<br /><br />To commute from the Charing Cross station to the Paddington station, you would take the Bakerloo Line of the London Tube. The Tube ride from Charing Cross to Paddington takes about 18 minutes.<br /><br />The <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">BritRail London Plus Pass</a> is not valid on the Tube, so you would just pay to take the Tube locally when you're there.<br /><br /><b><u>London to Stansted Airport</u></b><br /><br />From London to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/london-stansted-airport-5739" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Stansted</a>, you would take the Stansted Express.

    Changed reply in topic of BERNINA EXPRESS - CHUR TO TIRANO by Jeff to You can do the same as above to purchase tickets from Tirano to Varenna as well. Trains from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/tirano" rel="nofollow">Tirano</a> to Varenna are regional trains that do not accept reservations, so these trains would just have open seating.<br /><br />The port in Varenna is only a 5-10 minute downhill walk from the station..
