My Eurail pass finally got delivered– yay! Any tips on using it abroad? I’ve heard mixed reviews on whether they’re worth the money, but I think our “15 trips over two months” pass is the best bet for our travels and where we’re planning on going. (And with more space, prettier views and typically fewer stops, train travel beats bus travel ANY day of the week in my opinion.)
We were debating on getting a “2 months continuous/unlimited” Eurail pass, but we figured with the estimated amount of times we’ll use our passes, it was a better deal to go for the cheaper option and use the difference in money to pay for flights or the occasional bus when needed. We also learned that many times you need to pay a small reservation fee for space on the trains, so we’ll have to learn how that works as we go. If you have any tips or suggestions, let me know!
We’re also hopping on a few flights to get from Iceland to London, London to Lisbon, and eventually somewhere in Italy over to Croatia. Cheap airlines that we’ve booked so far have been: Iceland Air, EasyJet, Ryanair, and Aer Lingus. I’ll do reviews on each after we test them out!
The trip is starting to feel more real every day. Only 22 days until we leave!
