    Change in reply by Jeff to Hi Heather, When purchasing a pass, you would generally have to account for all of the countries being traveled through; however, the '<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-benelux-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-benelux-pass/index.html">Eurail Benelux Pass</a>' (the pass that covers travel in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg) also happens to be valid on the trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/paris-to-brussels.html" rel="nofollow">Paris to Brussels</a> (high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/thalys/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/thalys/how-to-book.html">Thalys</a> trains).

You would purchase the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-benelux-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow">Eurail Benelux Pass</a> here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-benelux-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-benelux-pass/index.html">https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-benelux-pass/index.html</a>.

For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations by entering the route on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>) and indicating the type of rail pass you'll be traveling with (i.e. a 'Eurail Benelux Pass').

    Changed description to I am wondering what is the best option for train travel. We will be traveling from Paris to Brussels then onto The Hauge and then on to Amsterdam. Now we are looking to do side trips while in Brussels to Bruges and possibly Tienen. These would just be short day trip. What would be the best rail pass? There are just so many trains
