Train travel in Europe: things you need to know
Take an amazing trip from Thailand, the Land of Smiles into Europe’s welcoming arms! Rail Europe can guide you on your European train travels and help you to see a wonderful selection of countries by train. You can visit Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, Central Europe and more.
We can give you access to over 15,000 destinations around Europe and find you the best deals for all of the big train operators in Europe, such as the Eurostar between London, Paris, Lille and Brussels, the Thalys for travel in The Netherlands, Germany and France, the high speed French TGV, the Spanish Renfe, NTV and Trenitalia.
Where can I go?
With 15,000 destinations in Europe at your finger tips, it can be difficult to decide where to go! But even if you choose to make use of just one of our Rail Passes, such as the Eurail Benelux-Germany Pass, you can see so much.
The Eurail Benelux-Germany Pass allows you to travel for two months (with 15 travel days) on all of the national rail networks throughout Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg and Germany. So you could see Amsterdam, Brussels, Luxembourg, Munich and Berlin using the Thalys and ICE trains between countries, without any hassle.

Tickets and Passes
Point to point train tickets are great if you are only making one or two journeys by train - perhaps you are visiting family in Paris and want to take the TGV down to Marseille for a weekend and back. But if you are travelling more than a couple of times by train it is best to get a Rail Pass.
These come in all shapes and sizes and there are many different options. Here are a few examples.
Our Eurail Passes are perfect for you as they have been designed for people who have permanent residency outside Europe, The Russian Federation and Turkey. The passes help you travel easily in one country, such as Italy with the Eurail Italy Pass, or several countries, such as the Eurail Germany-Switzerland Pass.
Plus we have more flexible passes like the Eurail Select Pass so you can visit a few countries (three, four or five bordering countries).
Our Eurail Global Pass is for people who want complete freedom, and it offers unlimited train travel throughout 24 European countries. You can jump on and off, stop for a few days, or weeks, and really get to explore several European countries and the historical sights, natural wonders and incredible cities on the way.
This year over 1.7 million travellers will make an amazing journey with Rail Europe and we can make it happen for you. Your journey begins here. Europe is waiting for you!
