Is a Eurail Pass worth it? If you are planning an Europe adventure it is an important question to ask yourself.
After all, as backpackers, we thrive saving every penny we can.
Finding the cheapest way to get from A to B can save you hundreds over time.
I’ve traveled Europe almost every way imaginable from budget airlines to hitchhiking. And Eurail is my favorite, as well as, one of the cheapest ways to travel Europe.
That being said Eurail might not be right for everyone and in all cases.
The prices of passes have gone up over the years and in some cases even with a pass you will need to purchase a reservation. (Although, below I will tell you how to avoid the reservation fees). This begs the question of how much value a Eurail pass still holds.
Let’s dive in the post to figure out the worth of a Eurail pass, how it works, and what it covers.
WHAT IS A EURAIL PASS?
Eurail Rail offers a range of different passes so you can get a pass that is perfect for you needs.

You buy the pass before heading to Europe and are emailed a blank ticket. Then, once you are in Europe, you can hop on and off trains at your convenience, filling in the ticket as you go.
