Get the full flavour of Europe with train travel in 33 countries with the Eurail Global pass!
You can buy a Eurail Pass if you are a resident of a non-European country. Proof of citizenship can be established by a passport/identity card. Proof of residence can be established by government issued residency documents, such as a driver’s licence and utility bill.
The pass must be validated within 11 months of purchase.
Some trains may require passengers to have a seat reservation
Eurail Paper Passes have been replaced with Mobile Passes.
A seat reservation is optional but recommended in order to guarantee a seat on a specific train and time. Reserve a seat.

1) In order to get the most of the railpass you have to understand the national and international railway tariff, that is, including the SCIC-NRT and SCIC-IRT. I can't imagine average travelers being able to do that - they can't even distinguish between "border station" and "border point" concept and I can't blame them. 2) A great number of trains does require extra supplements, reservations and so on. The situation in France can be very frustrating because the number of seats available for passholders is limited. An average passholder does not know, (s)he can beat the system by simply getting on train and paying the fine (which is less, than the price of the supplement!) or by buying a special reservation a somewhat tricky way (and it costs under 2 Euro). 3) In many countries (East, Central, Southern Europe) the pass in not worth the money. 4) On most night trains there is simply no first class! 5) The service quality in some countries (Hungary is the best example) is horrific. They may not let the passholder in the 1st class lounge... because they want to save money. If they let in, they may search his belongings: maybe he took out a fruit or two or a soda? Austrian 1st class lounge is the best. In general, the over-all value of passes is very low, unless you know exactly, what you are doing. I commuted between France and Hungary for about a year, using global EuRail passes (being a dual citizen with dual driver's licenses helps!). It was worth every Cent - but than, I have several decade experience with European train tickets and have much insider info + speak several local languages fluently. The European railways need to put their act better together - today they are losing to budget airlines in nearly every aspect. Regarding ACPRail: expats will be better off buying from RailEurope (more flexible, more discounts). The shipping costs of ACPRail are great - but that's all.

|DO NOT FILL IN ANYTHINGbob ,canadaJune 25, 2014|
DO NOT FILL IN ANY INFORMATION UNTIL YOU ARE AT THE INTERNATIONAL TICKETS DESK!!! Apparently two months timespan means two months minus one day. Eg. 25/06-24/08 NOT 25/06-25/08. Okay not a huge deal, except in order to change the day it cost €30. Not good when your traveling on a budget. On top of that the lady serving us was very rude about the whole situation and made out seem like it was completely obvious for us to not fill any information in ourselves. Anyways I hope this helps you have a better experience with Eu rail then I did

The Eurail First Class global pass was awesome. I traveled on the fly, adjusting my route to suit my mood and local recommendations to where to go for great hiking. I love the convenience of the pass - and all the out-of-the-way places it took me. I'll be getting another one soon.

Thoroughly enjoyed my Eurail Global Pass this spring! The first class benefits are so nice! Went to Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Sweden, and Denmark - some gorgeous scenery outside the window!

While studying abroad in England a year ago, a group of students and myself purchased the Eurail pass prior to leaving and used them for travel within continental Europe. It was extremely convenient and easy to use; I would use it again. The routes that the trains took were exceptionally scenic, and train rides were always enjoyable.
