    Hi Fred,

    For travel in the Netherlands and Germany, you would purchase the 2 country option of the Eurail Select Pass for the Benelux and Germany. The Netherlands is included as a part of the 'Benelux'. The Benelux covers Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg and counts them as one country for the purpose of rail passes.

    For the 2 country Eurail Select Pass, you would click here: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-select-pass-2-countries-8039.

    On each of the routes you'll be traveling, you'll be taking high-speed ICE (InterCity Express) trains. On these trains, reservations are highly recommended as a supplement to the rail pass.

    For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations by searching a route on our homepage (www.raileurope.com), checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a ‘Eurail Select Pass 2 Countries’).
