Eurailpass Supplements:

The following table lists European train reservation & supplement fees for railpass or EurailTicket holders. A listed price, or a "Yes", indicates that the supplement or reservation is required. Due to frequent price changes and currency differences these prices are subject to change without notice. While we make every effort to keep these prices up to date and acurate, we can not always gaurantee supplement prices.

  • These prices are per-person and approximate what you will pay inside Europe.
  • Additional service fees apply if purchased outside Europe.
  • Your Railpass or EurailTicket must cover the country that you are traveling within.
  • Additional supplement fees may apply for travelers who purchase Point-to-Point train tickets in Europe.
