    Changed reply in topic of Seat Reservations traveling from Como to Interlaken with Swiss Half Fare Card by Jeff to The options from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/lugano" rel="nofollow">Lugano</a> to Flüelen that involve a train change are not the same as the direct trains and would not have panoramic windows.<br /><br />When you search Lugano to Flüelen on our site, you are only seeing options that involve a train change, because the direct trains do not begin operating until April 21st. Therefore, if you search a date prior to April 21st, then these would not display. If you search a date after April 21st, it is possible that not all the schedules have been loaded yet.<br /><br />When you arrive in Flüelen, rather than take the steamboat, you can just switch to a direct train to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/lucerne" rel="nofollow">Lucerne</a>.<br /><br />I'm sorry, as we are not able to provide schedules or prices over this forum.<br /><br />Schedules for these routes can be viewed on <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/" rel="nofollow">our website</a> (although the direct Lugano-Flüelen trains may just not be loaded yet). Otherwise, you can inquire about schedules when you call us..

    Changed reply in topic of Seat Reservations traveling from Como to Interlaken with Swiss Half Fare Card by Jeff to Hi Ann,<br /><br />It's difficult to say, because our website was just updated. The previous version of our website would have the 'Gotthard Panorama Express' and '<a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/goldenpass-line" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">GoldenPass</a>' trains labeled accordingly. The Gotthard route is not able to be checked at this time, because it does not begin operating until April 21st. The <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/goldenpass-line" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">GoldenPass</a> is currently not labeled as such when you do a search from Lucerne to Interlaken; however, that may be updated by the time it comes to place your order.<br /><br />In any case, all direct trains from Lugano to Flüelen are 'Gotthard Panorama Express' trains, and all trains from Lucerne to Interlaken are '<a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/goldenpass-line" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link wwwraileuropecom/train/goldenpass-line">GoldenPass</a>' trains. Therefore, as long as you choose a direct train from each of these searches, you do not need to be concerned about booking anything else.<br /><br />These trains do offer both 1st and 2nd class, so you can definitely choose 1st class if that is your preference.<br /><br />I believe the primary configuration for 1st class on Gotthard Panorama Express trains is represented by isolated solo seats on one side of the train cars and duo club (facing one another) on the other side of the train cars. We think there may also be some club 4 seating arrangements (2 seats facing another set of 2 seats), but there is no way to tell for sure, and we would not be able to verify if that's what you were reserved for.<br /><br />The trains from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/lucerne" rel="nofollow">Lucerne</a> to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/interlaken" rel="nofollow">Interlaken</a> do have club 4 seating. If you'd like to ensure this type of seating arrangement for the Lucerne-Interlaken segment, you would have to call us to book the reservations. Once again, we can be reached at 1-800-622-8600..

    Changed reply in topic of Seat Reservations traveling from Como to Interlaken with Swiss Half Fare Card by Jeff to Hi Ann,<br /><br />For the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-half-fare-card" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Swiss Half Fare Card</a>, you would click here: <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-half-fare-card" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/pass/swiss-half-fare-card">http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-half-fare-card</a>.<br /><br />From <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/como" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Como</a> to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/interlaken" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/city/interlaken">Interlaken</a>, the fastest connections go up through <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/lucerne" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Lucerne</a>. In most cases, there would be a train change in Arth Goldau in between <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/como" rel="nofollow">Como</a> and <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/lucerne" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/lucerne">Lucerne</a>. Therefore, this would involve taking a train from Como to Arth Goldau, another train from Arth Goldau to Lucerne, and then another train from Lucerne to Interlaken. This option would take just under 5 hours in duration. Trains from Lucerne to Interlaken run along the famed <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/goldenpass-line" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link wwwraileuropecom/train/goldenpass-line">GoldenPass scenic route</a>.<br /><br />However, if you have more time, you can travel up to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/lucerne" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Lucerne</a> by way of the Gotthard scenic route and then still take the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/goldenpass-line" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link wwwraileuropecom/train/goldenpass-line">GoldenPass</a> route over to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/interlaken" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/interlaken">Interlaken</a>. This would involve taking a quick train from Como over to Lugano. In <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/lugano" rel="nofollow">Lugano</a>, you would board a 'Gotthard Panorama Express' train to Flüelen. Gotthard Panorama Express trains have panoramic windows for taking in all the scenery. The Gotthard Panorama Express trains run daily (except Mondays) from April 21st to October 14th of this year.<br /><br />The recommended route then includes the steamboat on Lake Lucerne from Flüelen to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/lucerne" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/lucerne">Lucerne</a>. Otherwise, you can just take a train from Flüelen to Lucerne.<br /><br />The ride on the steamboat takes about 2.5 hours, while the trains only take about 50-60 minutes.<br /><br />In <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/lucerne" rel="nofollow">Lucerne</a>, you would connect to a <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/goldenpass-line" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">GoldenPass</a> scenic train to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/interlaken" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Interlaken</a>. The <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/goldenpass-line" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link wwwraileuropecom/train/goldenpass-line">GoldenPass</a> trains from Lucerne to Interlaken also have panoramic windows.<br /><br /><b><u>Como to Lugano</u></b><br /><br />Since the trains from Como to Lugano originate in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/italy" rel="nofollow">Italy</a>, the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-half-fare-card" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-half-fare-card">Swiss Half Fare Card</a> will not be not valid. Therefore, you would need to purchase regular tickets for this segment of the route. You can do so by entering the route under the 'Tickets &amp; Reservations' tab on the homepage of our website, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>.<br /><br /><b><u>Lugano to Flüelen (via the Gotthard Panorama Express) &amp; Flüelen to Lucerne (steamboat or train)</u></b><br /><br />For the Gotthard Panorama Express from Lugano to Flüelen and the steamboat from Flüelen to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/lucerne" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/lucerne">Lucerne</a>, you can use the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-half-fare-card" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-half-fare-card">Swiss Half Fare Card</a>. The <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-half-fare-card" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link wwwraileuropecom/pass/swiss-half-fare-card">Swiss Half Fare Card</a> would also be valid should you decide to take a train for the segment from Flüelen to Lucerne.<br /><br />To purchase your half-price tickets to go along with these segments, you can 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. Otherwise, the half-price tickets can be purchased locally just by mentioning that you have the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-half-fare-card" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link wwwraileuropecom/pass/swiss-half-fare-card">Swiss Half Fare Card</a>.<br /><br />In addition to the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-half-fare-card" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-half-fare-card">Swiss Half Fare Card</a> and the half-price tickets, the Gotthard Panorama Express train does require reservations. However, the Gotthard Panorama Express is only able to be reserved once within 90 days of an intended departure date. When the time comes, you can book reservations for a Gotthard Panorama Express from Lugano to Flüelen by entering 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 indicating that you'll be traveling with a 'Swiss Travel Pass' where it says, 'Which Pass'.<br /><br /><b><u>Lucerne to Interlaken (GoldenPass)</u></b><br /><br />You would then use the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-half-fare-card" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link wwwraileuropecom/pass/swiss-half-fare-card">Swiss Half Fare Card</a> again on the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/goldenpass-line" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link wwwraileuropecom/train/goldenpass-line">GoldenPass</a> segment from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/lucerne" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/lucerne">Lucerne</a> to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/interlaken" rel="nofollow">Interlaken</a>. Once again, you can call us to purchase the half-price tickets to go along with it, or else you can just purchase these half-price tickets locally when you're there.<br /><br />On the trains from Lucerne to Interlaken, reservations are not necessary, so the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-half-fare-card" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-half-fare-card">Swiss Half Fare Card</a> and the half-price tickets are all you will need to board. If you wish to have reservations on this segment, they can be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure date..

    Changed reply in topic of Venice to Paris overnight train availability for August by Jeff to Hi Jeff,<br /><br />I'm not able to recreate the specific issue that you're encountering. However, to book this specific night train from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/venice-paris" rel="nofollow">Venice to Paris</a> (the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/thello-night-trains-7539" rel="nofollow">Thello night train</a>), it may be that you'd need to call us anyway. This night train carries single compartments, double compartments, triple compartments, 4-berth compartments, 6-berth compartments, and 2nd class seats. Due to an error, our website is only able to offer one or two of these accommodation types. If you're interested in one of the accommodation types that isn't shown, or if you're continuing to receive the error you described above, 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 and 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM CT on Saturdays.<br /><br />To view the type of compartment offered, you would click ‘Fare details’ after clicking on the fare itself.<br /><br />Generally, this train can be reserved once within 120 days of an intended departure date..

    Changed reply in topic of Eurail 2 country pass vs Swiss Travel Pass to cover Rome-Milan-Grindelwald-Interlaken-Lucerne-Zurich by Jeff to Hi Lissette,<br /><br />Please refer to my response to your other post here: <a href="http://community.raileurope.com/raileurope/topics/buying-an-italy-switzerland-5-day-pass" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://community.raileurope.com/raileurope/topics/buying-an-italy-switzerland-5-day-pass">http://community.raileurope.com/raileurope/topics/buying-an-italy-switzerland-5-day-pass</a>.<br /><br />In addition:<br /><br />Rail passes only cover some trains into stations at airports.<br /><br />Only if booked for 1st class would a Eurail Select Pass cover the express trains from the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/leonardo-da-vinci-fiumicino-5759" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/place/leonardo-da-vinci-fiumicino-5759">Rome FCO Airport</a> into the city of <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/rome" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/rome">Rome</a>. The express trains from Rome FCO to the city of Rome are known as Leonardo Express trains and are labeled 'Regionale Veloce' on our website. They arrive into the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/rome-termini-central-station" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/place/rome-termini-central-station">Termini station</a> in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/rome" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/rome">Rome</a>.

    Changed reply in topic of Would a Eurail Italy & Switzerland Pass work for Rome to Milan, Milan to Grindelwald, Grindelwald to Interlaken, Interlaken to Lucerne, & Lucerne to the Zurich Airport? by Jeff to I have not mentioned <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/domodossola" rel="nofollow">Domodossola</a> in any of my responses. The trains from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/milan-brig" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/milan-brig">Milan to Brig</a> or <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/milan-spiez" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/milan-spiez">Milan to Spiez</a> do stop there, yes, but with regard to the specific connections I've recommended, that is not where you would change trains along the route.<br /><br />If you still want to search regular ticket costs and schedules from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/rome" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/rome">Rome</a> to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/domodossola" rel="nofollow">Domodossola</a>, you would just do a search for the route on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>) and leave the 'I have a rail pass' box unchecked.<br /><br />The same thing if you do not wish to use a rail pass for the day you enter into <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/switzerland" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/switzerland">Switzerland</a>--you would just have to break up your search. As I've gone over in my previous responses, a connection from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/rome" rel="nofollow">Rome</a> to Grindelwald involves changing trains at least 3 times along the way; once in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/milan" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/milan">Milan</a>, once in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/spiez" rel="nofollow">Spiez</a>, and then in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/interlaken" rel="nofollow">Interlaken</a>. Therefore, you would do one search from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/rome-milan" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/rome-milan">Rome to Milan</a>, another search for connecting trains from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/milan-spiez" rel="nofollow">Milan to Spiez</a>, another search for connecting trains from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/spiez-interlaken" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/spiez-interlaken">Spiez to Interlaken</a>, and then another search for connecting trains from Interlaken to Grindelwald. Just remember to leave the 'I have a rail pass' box unchecked.<br /><br />Only 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 require that you enter your passport numbers. Therefore, it would not be possible to purchase this pass without your passport numbers..

Some trains require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass. When applicable, reservations are an additional cost. With regard to your specific itinerary, I advised you above where you need and don't need reservations.

    Changed description of Hello, <br /><br /> Forgive me if the answer is obvious, but I'm trying to determine if Eurail Select or an individual ticket is the best way to go. There are (3) of us traveling together (2 adults and 18 yr-old) to the above-mentioned countries. We're staying a few days in each place. We'd also like to visit Salzburg & Innsbruck. Does the Eurail pass include visits to those places? As far as Zurich, does the Eurail Select cover trips to Rhine Falls, Lucerne, Mt.Titlus, etc. I'm a little confused as whether we'd still need to purchase tickets for inter-country travel. Any advice is appreciated. <br /><br /> Thank you very much. <br /><br /> Allison by Arizona Copper to Hello,Forgive me if the answer is obvious, but I'm trying to determine if Eurail Select or an individual ticket is the best way to go.

Eurail Select vs. individual tickets for Prague/Vienna/Munich/Zurich/Lucerne/Mount Titlis/Rhine Falls by Jeff to Hi,<br /><br />A rail pass that includes the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/czech-republic" rel="nofollow">Czech Republic</a>, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/austria" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/austria">Austria</a>, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/germany" rel="nofollow">Germany</a>, and <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/switzerland" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/switzerland">Switzerland</a> would cover travel to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/prague" rel="nofollow">Prague</a>, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/munich" rel="nofollow">Munich</a>, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/salzburg" rel="nofollow">Salzburg</a>, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/innsbruck" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/innsbruck">Innsbruck</a>, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/zurich" rel="nofollow">Zurich</a>, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/lucerne" rel="nofollow">Lucerne</a>, and the stations closest to Rhine Falls.<br /><br />For the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-select-pass-5879" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/pass/eurail-select-pass-5879">4 country option of the Eurail Select Pass</a>, you would click here: <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-select-pass-5879" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-select-pass-5879">http://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-select-pass-5879</a>.<br /><br />The rail station at Rhine Falls is 'Schloss Laufen am Rheinfall' (located on a local rail line called the 'Rheinfall Railway' between Schaffhausen and Winterthur). From Schaffhausen, you would also have the option of taking a bus to 'Neuhausen am Rheinfall' and exiting at the 'Zentrum' stop, which is a 10 minute walk from the northern banks of the falls (note: the walk is down a very steep hill and would not be recommended for those who have difficulty walking.)<br /><br />The ascent to Mount Titlis starts in Engelberg (43 minute train ride from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/lucerne" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/city/lucerne">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 would be covered by a rail pass. For the cable cars between Engelberg and Titlis, a multi-country 'Eurail Pass' would enable you to receive a discount of about 20-25%. To receive this discount, you would purchase the ‘1 Day Round-Trip Journey From Engelberg - For Use Only With Eurail Pass Which Includes Switzerland’ option of the pass for '<a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/mount-titlis-8165" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/pass/mount-titlis-8165">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'..
