Any insight would be appreciated! Smile

Good Deals from San Francisco to London (Europe)

I am graduating from a 4 year university and some of my friends and myself wanted to take a Eurotrip from late March (26th) to mid April (11-15th). I wanted to see if someone can help us with some information. We want to land in London and leave from Athens or Rome.

How much on average the ticket price is during that time?

What are the best website to look for deals?

Are the fare going to get cheaper?

What is the best and cheapest way of transportation within European countries ie. England, France, Italy, Rome, Amsterdam, Prague, and Athens.

Look for advice on travel between countries!

This summer (May 28-June 17) myself and two friends will be traveling to Lisbon, Barcelona, Paris, Venice, Florence, Rome, and Athens. Our flights to and from are already booked and now I’m struggling to find the best way to get around within the countries. I think we are going to fly from Rome to Athens just to save time/energy getting there by rail. I’ve been looking at railpass but I’m not sure how much it is really going to save me.

I was hoping to take night trains when possible.

5-6 month eurotrip

Hi I’m doing a 5-6 month backpacking trip starting in August this year and just get organized with things like transport… Anyway I’ve been looking at rail passes and they all seem to be more designed for shorter trips is there any ones that someone who wants to do a 6 month trip should buy? I’m going to most places in Europe a lot of western and a bit of east just fitting in as much as I can. I’m under 25 and I’ll be travelling with one other person.

4 european citizens going on a EuroTrip

Hello, Three friends and I, all European citizens of different countries, are going on a Eurotrip this summer. We will leave from New York City around June 7th. Two people under 18 and two people over 18.
Our plan so far: Rome 3 days; Milan 3 days; Nice 7 days; Barcelona 4 days, Paris 4 days; Amsterdam 4 days; Berlin 5 days, Copenhagen 4 days, Stockholm 4 days; Oslo 4 days and end up in the North of Norway in Onoy (we have to be there by the 23rd of July).
Do you think we should get a round trip ticket from NYC to London, and then fly to rome?

Additional cost of sleeper trains with rail pass

I am planning to spend about 2 months in Europe this summer and will purchase a rail pass. I am aware that there is an extra charge for sleeper trains even if you have a rail pass but I cannot find how much the additional cost will be, any ideas? Thanks!!!

A few questions.

Hello Eurotrip community,

You’ve been a great help to me while planning my trip, so I figured I would ask you a few more questions. I have a question about public transport within the cities, will it be expensive? We are going to spend roughly 26 days in Europe in the cities of: London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Munich, Florence, Rome, Naples, and Pompeii, so I was wondering should I worry about public transportation.

LONDON — The only passenger rail link between Britain and the rest of Europe has been shut down indefinitely, Eurostar said Sunday, promising more travel misery for thousands of stranded passengers just before Christmas.

Services have been suspended since late Friday, when a series of glitches stranded five trains inside the Channel Tunnel and trapped more than 2,000 passengers for hours in stuffy and claustrophobic conditions.
