  • Hello,

    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. However, 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. Additionally, the Eurostar train (which is the train that will take you from London to Paris) is not entirely covered by any pass, but, by purchasing a rail pass, you would be eligible to receive the 'Passholder' fare on this train. You would check the Passholder costs for the Eurostar by clicking on 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations', just as you would to make reservations on other trains.

    Considering this, you would purchase a 3 country Eurail Select Pass (to include France, Spain and Italy), in combination with tickets booked at the Passholder rate on the Eurostar from London to Paris, as well as your other reservations.

    You can purchase the Eurail Select Pass by clicking here: http://www.raileurope.com/rail-ticket....

    From Paris, you would take an overnight train in order to get to Madrid. The night train from Paris to Madrid only operates for departures on Mondays, Thursdays, Frindays, and Sundays. Reservations are required on all night trains.

    From Madrid to Barcelona, you would take a direct a high-speed train that would also require reservations.

    The most feasible way to get all the way from Barcelona to Italy would be to take a direct overnight train that goes from Barcelona to Milan. The night train from Barcelona to Milan only operates for departures on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. As this is a night train, reservations would be required once again.

    From Milan, you would then be able to continue on to your other destinations in Italy. Trains between Milan, Venice, Florence, and Rome would all require reservations.

    After you add the pass to your shopping cart, you would click 'Continue Shopping' to add your reservations, as well as your Passholder tickets on the Eurostar train from London to Paris. On the next screen, you would then click 'Buy a Reservation' under where it says 'Reservations for Pass Holders' (if starting on the homepage, you would just click on 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations' to get an idea of the reservation costs).

    The night trains from Paris to Madrid and from Barcelona to Milan, as well as your trains operating within Italy, can all only be booked within 90 days of an intended date of departure. If your intended date of departure happens to fall 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 the route on our website.

    Trains from Madrid to Barcelona can only be booked within 60 days of an intended date of departure. If your intended date of departure happens to fall outside of this time frame, you would just enter a date within the next 60 days to get an idea of the reservation cost and view schedules when searching this route on our website.

    The Eurostar from London to Paris can generally be reserved up to 9 months in advance.

    Due to high demand, the Passholder rates on all of these trains sell out very quickly, so it is recommended that you purchase your reservations as soon as you know your travel dates.

      IMPORTANT UPDATE

      As of this month (April 2018):

      The following rail passes no longer qualify passengers to receive ‘passholder’ rates for reservations on the Eurostar:

      Any single country Eurail Pass, including:

      • Eurail France Pass
      • Eurail Benelux Pass

      Any 2 country option of Eurail Select Pass, including:

      • Eurail France-Italy Pass
      • Eurail France-Switzerland Pass
      • Eurail France-Germany Pass
      • Eurail Benelux-France Pass
      • Eurail France-Spain Pass
      • Eurail Benelux-Germany Pass

      BritRail Passes and the France-Italy combination of the 2 country Eurail Select Pass continue to not be valid on the Eurostar.

      Passengers traveling with any of these rail passes would need to purchase regular tickets to take the Eurostar.

      Passholder rates will continue to be offered (depending on availability) to any passenger traveling with a Eurail Global Pass, a 3 country Eurail Select Pass (that includes the country of arrival or departure, be it France or the Benelux), or a 4 country Eurail Select Pass (that includes the country of arrival or departure, be it France or the Benelux).
