Puvan – The main difference between a rail pass and rail tickets, is this:

Rail Tickets: These are ‘point to point’ between 2 cities

Rail Passes: Allow train travel through 1 or more countries over multiple days and months depending on the type of pass. For example, with a Eurail Global Pass you can hop on and off anywhere within 21 different countries over a three month period.

You do not have to buy a rail pass in order to purchase rail tickets, however many travelers prefer the convenience and flexibility of a rail pass, and you can buy it in advance (right here on without having to deal with currency hassles when buying tickets in Europ.

I’m traveling to 7 European countries within 6 weeks, and am really confused about what ticket is best for me. I’m really worried about buying the wrong ticket, especially because I have been told that when traveling over night it counts as two trips. What is the best ticket for me? I was thinking the 10 days within 2 months…

Doona, you aren’t going to get good answers when you post your question as a “travel tip” Please read some old posts in the “Transport” section and then post this again ther if you still have questions.

Also, trust me, you probably WILL buy the wrong railpass. I’ve never bought a railpass when I didn’t figure out that a different one would have been better — after I got home and knew when (dates and times) and where I’d actually traveled. Your concern about overnight trains isn’t usually a problem. Most overnight trains only count as 1 rail day. The “seven PM rule” allows you to mark only one day (arrival day) on your railpass if your train leaves after 7:00 PM and there are no connections before midnight.

We can’t even give even the most general advice without a whole lot more information. Which 7 countries? which cities? How old are you? “Railsaver” will give you the best recommendation about which, if any, railpass is best for your specific itinerary. It’s built into the trip planner, here our you can go to Even then, you won’t know exactly which railpass is best without researching ticket prices on the the exact days and times you want to travel on the individual national rail company websites. A combination of a pass and point to point tickets is usually the best option.
