Eurail Global Pass

I'm going to Europe (Prague > Budapest > Vienna > Rome > Paris > Amsterdam) for a half of month on my own next year and thinking about buying a Eurail Global Pass. Does anyone advise me that it is a efficient way to reserve a seat at train stations when i get there by using the Eurail Global Pass? Many thanks !

'Half a month"??? That means only 2 weeks for 6 cities in 6 different countries??????

WOW! That sounds like much too much traveling and little time to actually see/do anything.

It is extremely doubtful that a Global pass would make any sense. There are too many supplements, additional charges, restriction, etc associated with so many trains you would be taking. Do look at the Train Forum.

Also, as RiffM says, 6 cities in 2 weeks means that you'd be spending half your time travelling from one to another.

Prague to Budapest: From €19 pre-booked at www.cd.cz/eshop

Budapest to Vienna: From €19 if pre-booked at www.mav-start.hu (use Chrome with its translation feature, as this switches to Hungarian half way through, but it works!). Or around €30 at the station on the day.

Vienna-Rome by direct sleeper train: From €39 with couchette, €69 with bed in 2-berth sleeper, book at thre Austrian Railways site www.oebb.at looking for a cheap fare with a clover leaf symbol.

Rome-Milan from €9 at www.lefrecce.ot or try new operator www.italotreno.it. Then Milan to Paris by daytime TGV at www.tgv-europe.com from €25 or by sleeper train (depart 23:35 arrive 09:29) at www.thello.com

Paris-Amsterdam from €35 at www.thalys.com
