I have been researching and getting conflicting advice regarding eurail passes versus buying rail tickets as you go or online prebooking and am very confused! My daughter and I will be travelling from Lyon France to Paris, then Paris to Bordeaux, from there to San Sebastián in Spain, a few trips within Spain then on to Montpellier in France again, few trips along the coast to Monaco, Italy taking a few more trips, then flying out of Geneva over a four week period. Was advised by a travel agent to purchase a Eurail Select Saver Pass for 10 trips in 4 countries at a cost of around $800 AUD from Australia. We thought this expensive and then researched and thought buying our own online would be cheaper but am unsure. Also travelling May-June so would it be difficult to purchase tickets on the day as we travel and more expensive? Thanks for any advice!
