Traveling with a Eurail train pass is the easiest, fastest, and most convenient way to explore continental Europe. The pages below provide information and price comparisons of the many forms of transportation available in Europe. Try using Pass Finder to figure which rail pass is the best value for your itinerary.

Where to purchase (find your country below)?

You must purchase your Eurail pass before you arrive in Europe. You can purchase Eurostar tickets and point-to-point tickets in advance or while Europe.

Argentina | Australia | Brazil | Canada | China | Hong Kong (English) Hong Kong (Chinese) | India | Israel

Japan | Korea | Middle East/GCC | New Zealand | Singapore (English) | Singapore (Chinese) | South Africa

Thailand | United States of America | Rest of the World (English) | Rest of the World (Spanish)

Information to help you get started

For many people the only way to travel in Europe is by train. Eurail and/or Inter-Rail passes provide fast and efficient for those wanting to travel Europe by train.

  • Eurail passes are available to anyone who is not a citizen of Europe.

  • Britrail passes are available to anyone who is not a citizen of the UK.
  • Inter-Rail passes are only available to citizens of Europe or for people who can prove they have been residents of a European country for more than six months.
  • EuroStar train service offers high speed trains between London Paris and Brussels Paris. Anyone may purchase tickets, but Eurail pass holders are eligible for a discounted ticket.
  • If you are traveling in a small group (3-6 people) you might find it cheapest to rent or lease a car for the duration of stay in Europe. When computing the price remember to factor in buying gas, road tolls, and any other applicable charges.

    Several different companies offer flexible bus passes that go to many of the most popular travel destinations in Europe. Bus passes are sometimes, but not always, cheaper than train passes. They are an especially good deal for those traveling in Europe for more than two months, because most rail passes are only valid for up to two months from first day of use (depending on the pass you purchase).

    Yet another travel option is backpacking bus tours. I went on two of these week long tours as supplements to my independent train travel. They are fun way to travel (especially when traveling solo) and a great way for a traveler to see certain parts of Europe in depth.

    What I used during my three month trip

    Depending on the length of your stay, combining rail and bus passes can save you money and offer you greater flexibility. During my three months of travel I: used a Britrail Flexipass, went on a MacBackpackers tour, took a National Express bus to/from Ireland, went on a Tir Na NOg tour, took a Eurolines bus from London to Paris, used a 10 days in two month Eurail Flexi-Pass, and took the Eurostar from Brussels to London.

    Car Carrier Ro/Ro Ocean Transportation Services

    K Line — Pioneer in Automobile Transport

    As a pioneer in the transport of automobiles using pure car carriers (PCC), K Line provides services for the safe and timely transport of completely built-up cars (CBU). K Line entered the CBU transport service in 1970 with the Toyota Maru No. 10, Japan’s first PCC. Since then, we have steadily upgraded our fleet to raise transport quality even further.

    Safety in Navigation and Environmental Preservation

    K Line not only makes unstinting efforts to transport CBU safely and without causing damage during the loading and unloading operations and navigation, we are also making fleet upgrades to improve environmental performance. Upgrades include the use of fuel tanks placed within a triple-bottom structure to prevent oil leaks and protect the environment with enhanced fuel tank protection performance in the event of damage to the ship. We also adopted electrically controlled engines on PCC for the first time. Computer control of fuel injection timing and the opening and closing of exhaust valves reduces nitrogen oxide emissions and cuts soot and carbon dioxide during low-load operation. We are actively working to reduce environmental impact through the use of various cutting-edge technologies such as particulate matter-removal equipment that uses ceramic filters to prevent soot dispersion.

    DRIVE GREEN PROJECT – A State-of-the-Art Environmentally-Friendly Flagship

    K Line has launched DRIVE GREEN PROJECT in order to pursue environmental protection and energy savings with the world’s most advanced technologies, integrated on the 7,500-unit Car Carriers ordered through Japan Marine United Corporation. On March 16, 2016 at the Onishi Shipyard of Shin Kurushima Dockyard Co. Ltd. the construction of “GLOBAL HIGHWAY,” a 7,500-vehicle car carrier, was completed. The ship is the fourth ship in the 7,500-vehicle Car Carrier Series, the largest ship type in “K” Line’s specialized car carrier fleet.

    Responding to Diversifying Customer Needs

    “K” Line is expanding its services provided mainly on the Atlantic routes to include routes to and from Asia as well. We are able to transport high & heavy vehicles and agricultural and construction machinery as well as oversized, static cargo using mafi trailers. We can accommodate privately own vehicles, high & heavy vehicles and static cargo.

    In the automobile industry, production is shifting from traditional auto production countries to newly-industrialized countries. In conjunction with this change, the transport of CBU is diversifying around the world, and we believe that this trend will continue in the future. In response to these changes, we will continue our efforts to operate various types of ships and reinforce our global-spanning service network to meet customer needs.

    K Line will ship single or multiple vehicles (RoRo for Autos, Trucks, Boats, and any kind of rolling stock) around the world. For more information in North America please e-mail or call:

    Discover Amsterdam’s Tourism, Accommodations, and Culture

    by Amsterdam.com

    ​For American travelers headed to Europe, Amsterdam has always been an attractive destination. Amsterdam is a compact little city, hosting dozens of world-class museums, miles of beautiful canals, well-maintained parks, narrow cobblestone streets with lots of Old World charm, and hundreds of hotels, outdoor cafes and friendly bars. However, perhaps the most welcoming thing about Amsterdam is the fact that English is the second language and nearly everyone in the tiny lowland nation of the Netherlands speaks it fluently. Amsterdam has long been considered one of the best cities to visit in Europe. It is a beautiful, laid back town with lots to do, lots to see, great food from all over the world and friendly people everywhere you go. A visit to downtown Amsterdam is like taking a walk back in time, as the center of the city is filled with historic architecture dating back to the 17th century.

    Here at Amsterdam.com you’ll find vacation travel packages and other great travel deals that combine the cost of your flight and accommodations to offer the lowest package prices to savvy travelers. Amsterdam.com offers complete information for the best deals on Amsterdam vacation packages. Most visitors to Amsterdam arrive at the Schiphol airport that also serves duty as a train station and major shopping center too. Travelers can stay near the airport, or choose to stay at a hotel in the center of the city. There are a number of inexpensive hotels near the airport with inexpensive shuttles from Schiphol to the heart of the downtown area. If you choose to stay at a hotel in the outlying areas near the airport, you can always rent a car to see the rest of the Netherlands too.

    Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport is Europe’s fourth largest and is located just a few miles from the center of the city center. There are plenty of inexpensive air flights from within Europe and direct flights from outside Europe are readily available too. Some visitors coming from the U.K. and Scandinavia may choose to travel to Amsterdam by ferry. Boat travel is a viable option for those looking for an inexpensive, alternative approach to the city. You can also take the train to Amsterdam, and all other destinations in the Netherlands are less than 3 hours from Amsterdam by rail. Amsterdam is less than 6 hours by rail from connections in Brussels, London, Paris, Hamburg, Berlin and Frankfurt. Discount rail passes are very popular and advance reservations are recommended if you prefer to travel by train. You can also travel to Amsterdam on a Eurolines bus, Eurolines is the largest and most extensive coach service with competitive prices and routes to and from every major city in Europe.

    With an abundance of world-famous museums and historical sights, Amsterdam is obviously one of the most romantic and beautiful cities in the world, however it may be best known as a city of tolerance and diversity. Amsterdam has all the amenities of a big city with nightlife, international restaurants and good transportation, but it also has quiet charm with very little road traffic. The great museums are the main tourist attraction in Amsterdam. Many people have heard of the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk Museum, but the city also has over fifty other museums that attract millions of visitors each year. Amsterdam’s coffee shops that are famous for selling small amounts of cannabis and hashish that are strictly regulated and taxed, are another popular tourist draw. Whatever your Amsterdam travel needs may be, Amsterdam.com will guide you to the best services and most affordable packages available online 24 hours a day.
