    Hi Leisa,

    For the requested itinerary, you would purchase a 4 country Eurail Select Pass to include Italy, Switzerland, Austria, and Germany. You can find this pass to purchase here: http://www.raileurope.com/rail-ticket... .

    After you add the pass to your shopping cart, you would click 'Continue Shopping' to add any reservations. On the next screen, you would then click 'Buy a Reservation' under where it says 'Reservations for Pass Holders' (to check reservation costs and schedules beforehand, you would click on 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com.)

    Trains in this part of Europe can only be reserved within 90 days of an intended date of departure. If your intended travel falls outside of this time frame, you would just enter a date within the next 90 days to get an idea of the reservation cost and view schedules when searching a route on our website.
