Hello,

We are traveling to Europe this June. We are going to London, Paris, Munich and Rome. We will be using the Eurostar train service from London to Paris. We would like to use the DB Bahn high-speed train from Paris to Munich, and the DB Bahn night train service from Munich to Rome. I know that a Eurail pass is not applicable to the London-Paris leg, but is there an option to get a pass for the last two routes? Or will we need to get point-to-point tickets through the train’s site? Thank you in advance.

I can’t imagine any pass being cheaper for these two point-to-point trips, but check out Railsaver.com

If you’re only taking 2 trains, point to point tickets, purchased on-line from the national rail company websites, will probably be cheapest, although a 3 country select pass for 5 days may save money if you qualify for a youth pass.. Second cheapest will be to purchase the train tickets at the train station after you get to Europe. A railpass may be cheaper than buying the point to point tickets from one of the travel agency websites that sell rail passes.

Start with the German rail system website to price the tickets: http://reiseauskunft…
Also look at SNCF.com the French national rail company website and trenitalia.com the Italian rail company. The French site will try to transfer you to a travel agency (where you’ll pay higher “global fares” and inflated prices for reservations) and the Italian site does not accept credit cards that weren’t issued in Europe.
