ABOVE: Use your rail pass on high-speed TGV
Rail Europeis a joint venture of the
French National Railways and the Swiss Federal Railways. It sells Eurail passes,
national rail passes, and tickets for 60 railroads in 35 European countries, and its Web site is the
#1 online resource for information on rail travel in Europe.
Tip: If you're buying point-to-point tickets (as opposed to rail
passes), you may be able to find better deals by searching
railway sites or simply getting your tickets at the station. But for
rail passes, or if you aren't willing to compare fares and book tickets in
foreign languages, Rail Europe is the top place to shop.
