    A little deceiving |
    "The rail pass was useful in the sense that I believe I saved money buying this. However I didn't realise how expensive it would be reserving seats... which I was told was highly recommended as we may miss out. Apart from the fact that every train we had was delayed in some way I do wish there was a MUCH cheaper set price for reserving, if at all. Our Brit Pass did not charge for reservations. "

    Go 1st class for flexi-days |
    "1st class for a Eurail pass equals buying a 2nd class ticket individually for a decent distance. I advise getting a flexi-days pass for longer distance days and using the RailEurope site or SNCF/TrenItalia sites for shorter day hops (2nd class) to get value. Over 26 yrs you have to get the 1st class pass anyway. Make sure you make seat reservations for Fast trains (TGV, Eurostar etc.), paying the fee on board costs more. I had trouble getting a seat reservation from Italy to France, do it online at SNCF if you can. Euro 9 is the usual charge for a seat reservation, don't forget to do so, the SNCF service desks at stations I found were also very helpful. "

    New to train travel |
    "We knew we had to pre plan as well as we could. It was great to be able to not only buy the France - Italy pass but also pre booking seats and having the tickets and other information in our hands before we left. First class is the best travel option so if you can, travel first class. We also had to travel on regional trains which unfortunately was not included in the scope of the Pass. Full carriages, some standing but it was ok. We gave ourselves time to be familiar with Station layouts and information boards to avoid any rush and subsequent panic and this was the best approach every time. We were fortunate to have seats in a compartment with friendly and interesting people making the trip enjoyable, however avoid using the toilets if you possibly can. The travel was with Trenitalia. "

    "Not easy travelling with luggage. Many stations numerous stairs with no other access to required platform. Destination signage very unclear on several trains. Toilets disgusting on the train- even in 1st class "
