    Hi Mary,

    There are separate rail passes that will cover travel to the destinations you mentioned.

    Any rail pass you choose to purchase would depend on the specific cities you intend to visit while you're in Europe. When selecting a rail pass on our website, you would just want to be sure that all of the countries being traveled through are accounted for on the pass you choose. To view our rail passes, you would go to the homepage of our website, click on 'Find & Book Rail Passes' and then select any of the countries you intend to travel in from the drop-down menus that appear under where it says 'Find a Rail Pass'.

    It is important to note that there is no rail pass that will combine Great Britain with any other countries on the mainland continent of Europe. Great Britain is only covered by the BritRail Pass, the BritRail England Pass, or the BritRail Pass Plus Ireland. Therefore, for extensive rail travel in the United Kingdom and continental Europe, you would end up purchasing one of our BritRail Passes, in combination with another pass that would cover the countries you will be traveling to on the mainland continent of Europe.

    The BritRail Pass covers the ticket costs for rail travel in Scotland and Wales, as well as in England. In contrast, the BritRail England Pass only covers the ticket costs for rail travel within England. The BritRail Pass Plus Ireland covers rail travel in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, and Northern Ireland.

    You can view the selection of passes offered for the United Kingdom by clicking here:

    There are also various city passes for travelers only staying in London, such as the London Travel Card. The London Travel Card covers travel on the Tube subway system and London's buses. You can check costs for and purchase the London Travel Card by clicking here:
