European Vacation

I am traveling from Munich to Salzburg to Vienna to Prague to Budapest. Does it make more sense to get an individual ticket from Munich to Salzburg, then a rail pass for the rest ? Travel from Salzburg to Budapest will be within the month of May.

    Hi Tricia,

    For the requested travel, I would recommend purchasing a 5 country Eurail Select Pass to include Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary. You would purchase the Eurail Select Pass by clicking here:

    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, and the direct trains from Prague to Budapest pass through Slovakia en route.

    After you add the pass to your 'Itinerary' (shopping cart), you would click 'Read More' where it says 'Check to determine if you need reservations when traveling with your rail pass'. A button that says 'Add Reservation' would then appear just below, which is what you would click to purchase any reservations. If you wish to browse reservation costs beforehand, you would click on 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations' on our homepage,

    Trains from Munich to Salzburg, Salzburg to Vienna, and Vienna to Prague can only be booked within 90 days of an intended date of departure, while trains from Prague to Budapest can only be booked within 60 days of an intended date of departure. Since your intended travel falls outside of these time frame, you would just enter earlier dates to get an idea of the reservation costs and schedules when searching these routes on our site.
