    Changed reply in topic of Can't book reservation for round-trip between Paris & Rennes if I make my return to Paris the next day by Jeff to Hi Karen,<br /><br />I don't show there to be any issues preventing the return from displaying on the requested date. I would recommend trying it by doing a separate search for each segment, rather than one 'round-trip' search.

If you still don't see the return options, please 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 and 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM CT on Saturdays.<br /><br />Trains between <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow">Paris</a> and <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/rennes" rel="nofollow">Rennes</a> are <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow">TGV</a> high-speed trains..

It also may be the case that only one or two departures show for each search you do.

    Changed reply in topic of Can I take my bike on the day time Intercity Express trains from Amsterdam to Basel and then from Basel to Milan? I do have a bike bag! by Jeff to Hi David,<br /><br />Only because you have the bag, you can make this trip just like anyone would be able to. A bicycle can be taken on board any train if contained within a purpose-designed bicycle bag (measuring no more than 120cm x 90cm). A bike can fit in such a bag with the wheels and pedals detached and the handlebars parallel to the frame. There is no charge to travel with your bike in one of these bags.<br /><br /><b><u>Amsterdam to Basel</u></b><br /><br />The most feasible connections from Amsterdam to Basel take just over 8 hours in duration and involve changing trains once in either Cologne or Frankfurt along the way.<br /><br />You would purchase tickets by searching a route under 'Tickets &amp; Reservations' 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 a trip from Amsterdam to Basel, you would just piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment (i.e. one search from Amsterdam to Cologne and then another search for connecting trains from Cologne to Basel).<br /><br />When the results of your search display, please be advised that the 'Later Trains' button does not function. Therefore, to view departures at a different time of the day, you would instead have to adjust your preferred departure time from the initial search screen. Continue to do this until you come upon the direct trains for the segments you're viewing.<br /><br />The trains on these routes from Amsterdam to Basel (whether you go via Cologne or whether you go via Frankfurt) are ICE high-speed trains.<br /><br /><b><u>Basel to Milan</u></b><br /><br />From Basel to Milan, there are direct EC (EuroCity) trains taking about 4 or 4.5 hours.<br /><br />Otherwise, depending on the time of day you want to depart, your most feasible connections from Basel to Milan may take about 4.5 hours in duration and involve changing trains once in Arth Goldau along the way. For the options via Arth Goldau, you would purchase tickets by doing a separate search for each segment (i.e. one search from Basel to Arth Goldau and another search for connecting trains from Arth Goldau to MIlan)..

    Changed reply in topic of Does 15 days continuous Swiss Travel Pass cover Jungfraujoch Top of Europe, Glacier Express, etc? by Jeff to Once in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/zermatt" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/zermatt">Zermatt</a>, one of the main draws is the observation deck at Gornergrat, where you'll have spectacular views of the Matterhorn. To reach Gornergrat, you would take the Gornergratbahn cogwheel train, for which the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-pass-5934" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-pass-5934">Swiss Travel Pass</a> would qualify you to receive a 50% discount. For this discount on the Gornergratbahn you would purchase the 'Mountain Tops: Gornergrat Zermatt to Gornergrat Swiss Travel Pass Holder' option (Low season, Mid-season, or High-season depending on when you'll be taking the trip) of the pass for '<a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/mount-gornergrat" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/pass/mount-gornergrat">Mount Gornergrat</a>' here: <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/mount-gornergrat" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/pass/mount-gornergrat">http://www.raileurope.com/pass/mount-gornergrat</a>.<br /><br />Also very highly recommended in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/zermatt" rel="nofollow">Zermatt</a> is the gondola and cable cars up to Klein Matterhorn/Glacier Paradise.

The reservations are a small cost in addition to the '<a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/jungfraujoch-top-of-europe-8315" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/pass/jungfraujoch-top-of-europe-8315">Jungfraujoch Top of Europe</a>' and have to be made locally at the stations in either <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/interlaken" rel="nofollow">Interlaken</a> (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/interlaken-ost" rel="nofollow">Interlaken Ost</a>), Grindelwald, Lauterbrunnen, and Wengen.<br /><br />Expect stunning views throughout the entire trek between <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/interlaken" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/interlaken">Interlaken</a> and Jungfraujoch, whether you take the route via Grindelwald or the one via Lauterbrunnen/Wengen. To get the most of your Jungfraujoch experience, you might want to consider making your ascent one way and your descent the other. The ‘Jungfrau Railway’ itself runs mostly through a tunnel (the ‘Jungfrau Tunnel’), but there are two ‘sightseeing stops’ in the tunnel (‘Eigerwand’ and ‘Eismeer’) where passengers can exit their train and take in the views through windows built into the side of the mountain.<br /><br />At the Jungfraujoch Top of Europe station, you have access to the Sphinx Observation Terrace and the Aletsch Glacier (Great Aletsch Glacier). The Jungfraujoch station (Top of Europe) is the highest rail station in Europe, the Sphinx Observation Terrace is one of the highest astronomical observatories in the world, and the Aletsch Glacier (Great Aletsch Glacier) is the longest glacier in Europe.<br /><br /><b><u>Glacier Express</u></b><br /><br />The <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/glacier-express-7528" rel="nofollow">Glacier Express</a> scenic train, which runs between <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/zermatt" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/zermatt">Zermatt</a> and <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/st-moritz" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/st-moritz">St Moritz</a>, does require reservations as a supplement to a rail pass.

    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 UK with countries on the mainland continent of Europe.<br /><br />To cover your travel in the UK, your most economical would be a pass called the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894">BritRail London Plus Pass</a>. For the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894" rel="nofollow">BritRail London Plus Pass</a>, you would click here: <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894">http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894</a>. The <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894" rel="nofollow">BritRail London Plus Pass</a> is a special pass for travel limited to southern England, covering the areas just outside of London and beyond. Both Hastings and Reading lie within the area covered by this pass.<br /><br />You would then just purchase a regular ticket for your train from Amsterdam to Paris. From Amsterdam to Paris, you would take the high-speed <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/thalys-7536" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train/thalys-7536">Thalys</a> train.<br /><br /><b><u>Heathrow Airport to London</u></b><br /><br />From <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/london-heathrow-airport-5753" rel="nofollow">Heathrow</a> to London, you would take the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/heathrow-express-8031" rel="nofollow">Heathrow Express</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 London leave hourly throughout the day, and the ride takes about 2 hours. There also hourly trains departing out of the Charing Cross station in London, 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" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/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 Reading require going back through London 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 BritRail London Plus Pass 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">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">Stansted</a>, you would take the Stansted Express. The <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894">BritRail London London Plus Pass</a> is valid to cover you on the Stansted Express.<br /><br />You can catch the Stansted Express at either the Liverpool St station in London or the Tottenham Hale station in London. The ride from London Liverpool St to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/london-stansted-airport-5739" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/place/london-stansted-airport-5739">Stansted Airport</a> takes about 40-45 minutes, while the ride from London Tottenham Hale to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/london-stansted-airport-5739" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/place/london-stansted-airport-5739">Stansted Airport</a> takes about 30 minutes.<br /><br /><b><u>Amsterdam to Paris</u></b><br /><br />As I alluded to above, you'll take the high-speed <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/thalys-7536" rel="nofollow">Thalys</a> train to travel from Amsterdam to Paris. For this, you'll just purchase regular tickets.

    Changed reply in topic of 3 weeks travel, London-Paris, Paris-Brugge, Brugge-Amsterdam, Amsterdam-Rotterdam, Rotterdam-Amsterdam Schipol Airport, Venice-Florence, and Florence-Rome by Jeff to Hi Mundo,<br /><br />Unfortunately, there is no single rail pass that combines the UK with countries on the mainland continent of Europe, including France.<br /><br />To cover your travel in France, your best option would be the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/france-rail-pass-5911" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail France Pass</a> for the number of 'travel days' you need. For the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/france-rail-pass-5911" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/pass/france-rail-pass-5911">Eurail France Pass</a>, you would click here: <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/france-rail-pass-5911" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/pass/france-rail-pass-5911">http://www.raileurope.com/pass/france-rail-pass-5911</a>.<br /><br />To cover your travel in the UK, your best option would be a pass called the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894" rel="nofollow">BritRail London Plus Pass</a>. For the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894">BritRail London Plus Pass</a>, you would click here: <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">http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894</a>.

Both Poole and Whitstable fall within the area covered by this pass.<br /><br />Neither of these passes cover the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/eurostar-7514" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurostar</a> train that connects <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/city/paris">Paris</a> with <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/city/london">London</a>.

Most options from CDG to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/la-rochelle" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">La Rochelle</a> would involve going into the city of <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris</a> first. To do so, you would take Line B of the Paris's RER commuter rail network to the Châtelet–Les Halles stop.

The RER and Métro are not covered by the rail pass, so you would pay to board locally when you're there.
