While there, we want to go to Mt. Titlis, take a ferry on the lake and if we have time, go to Mt. Pilatus. I believe a pass will cover the train to Lucerne and might cover the ferry. I know that you get a discount on trip to Mt. Titlis if you have a pass, but wonder if it's worth it the additional cost of the pass. Could someone help me determine what the best option is in order to be the most cost effective?

Would I put the date I enter Europe (e.g., if I'm going to London first but not using trains until a different country)? Or would I enter the date on which I'd first use the ticket in Switzerland?

I am traveling as part of a group of 4 youths. We will be travelling for 2 weeks in February 2019. Our routes are as follows: <br /><br /> - Vienna -> Budapest <br /> - Krakow -> Prague <br /> - Prague -> Cesky Krumlov (few hours stopover to explore) -> Salzburg <br /> - Salzburg -> Zurich <br /> - All around Switzerland <br /><br /> Also which routes would require reservation in advance? <br /><br /> Thanks very much in advance for your help! question complete 1 2 1 comment arlberg, arlberg line, arlberg pass, arlberg railway, austria, czech republic, jizni express, krakow, krakow to prague, linz to salzburg, poland, prague, prague to Český krumlov, railjet, salzburg, salzburg to zurich, switzerland, vienna to budapest, wien, zurich, České budějovice to linz, České budějovice to Český krumlov, Český krumlov to salzburg, Český krumlov to České budějovice 7788228 Is it more economical to buy Eurail or Renfe pass? 2018-09-05T20:38:33Z 2018-09-05T15:37:26Z Betsy Blackburn betsy_blackburn Hi, Jeff! We are traveling from Barcelona to Madrid (Sept 27); Madrid -Segovia -Madrid (Sept 29); Madrid -Toledo -Madrid (Oct 1); Madrid-Seville (Oct 3),; Seville to Granada (Oct 7). 2 questions: (1) What would be the fastest and most economical—Renfe pass or Eurail, or point to point ticket purchase? (2) If direct travel from Seville to Granada is still not possible, how long does it take for the bus ride from Antequera to Granada? Is the cost of the bus included in the Renfe pass? question complete 1 2 1 comment 7787259 Misleading price 2018-09-05T18:27:33Z 2018-09-03T18:56:02Z Johnny Ronny johnny_ronny Hello, <br /><br /> The price on the website for 1 adult and 1 youth does not update when this combination is selected.

We don't know exactly what we plan to do each day, we want to go to Gruyeres, Lucerne, Lauterbrunnen, etc. But when and where will depend a little on the weather and advice we get, etc. We like to be a little flexible in where we go and what we do. This worked great with the rail passes in Japan where we'd decide a day or two before, check the schedules, show up at the station and jump on. However, deciding on Eurail vs swiss pass vs also incorporating Germany and Salzburg has become a giant headache! We don't have a good idea of what is covered in swisspass which isn't in the Eurail and the possibility of Eurail for everything vs a swisspass + a shorter duration eurail is frustrating. Any advice? We might just give up and get a car, it most likely will be cheaper but I don't think it will be as relaxing and fun.Thanks for any, all advice. I keep reading posts on other websites which end up being 10 years old. question complete 5 2 1 comment switzerland, swisspass, eurail, advice
