    Train Travel in Europe |
    "As we have traveled before per train it is always the highlight of our tour. Trains are clean, on time, efficient service and good value for meals on board where served. You get more time to view the countryside, take photos and meet people. Most stations are conveniently sited and easily accessable and having the Select Saver Pass train travel is a pleasure. Will recommend to all who want to move around Europe at a reasonable cost. "

    next generation pass |
    "Hi there Firstly, the pass is very good. Especially the mobile app w(e can search the train schedule. It is much convenient than I was using it 15years before. However, the pass itself is no changes. It is still a paper and we need to write down the date...same as what I did in 15 years b4. I suggest a next generation pass, smart card, like octopus in Hong Kong. It can record the journal automatically. Moreover, extra package would be offered,eg a travel buy Eur200 card, a special discount if based on each journal. Traffic is more flexible to use it. Hope my suggestion is useful. Thank. Rio "

    Good ticket |
    "The pass is very easy to use. It make our trip smooth. If possible, the lower price is better, of cause. I didn't see passengers very much in 1st train. It was inconvenient that we can't use the ticket separately in the group. "

    Family holiday |
    "The Eurail tickets were very easy to use, no issues at all in any country we travelled (Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Netherlands). Definitely worth the extra €100 or so to go first class. The only complication was the slightly weird German booking system, where you can reserve seats with no tickets, or buy tickets without reserving seats. With the Eurail passes we were often unable to prebook seats without paying an extra fee, so managed this by getting to stations a little earlier. Travelling around Europe by train is a great way to go. Very comfortable, good service and reasonable food available on most trains. Plenty of space and sufficient room for suitcases (we had an extra case after all the shopping, and had no trouble fitting it in. We will travel this way again. "
