Buy pass & reserve some trips at same time?

How soon after I buy a pass can I book reservations? Do I have to wait to have the pass in hand, or can I proceed to reserve as soon as I have purchased the pass?

  • Hi John,

    Reservations can be purchased at any point, in fact, it is recommended that reservations be purchased as soon as possible. Generally, we would even recommend purchasing reservations within the same order as your rail pass, if possible. With that said, most reservable trains in Europe can only be booked within 60 or 90 days of an intended date of departure. If your intended travel falls outside of 60 or 90 days, you can just enter earlier dates in order to get an idea of the reservation costs and view schedules when searching routes on our site.

    You would purchase reservations by clicking on 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com.
