The Eurail Select Pass from Rail Europe will transport you in comfort: not only providing effortless access to the places you want to visit but the simplicity of travel without concern for flight times, road signs or gas prices.

Another less recognized but enormous benefit of taking the train with a European rail pass is that it travels from the city center to the city center, leaving you where all the action is. And the Eurail Select Pass gives you the cost savings to travel, as well as all the other additional bonuses that the pass provides: from select hotel discounts to museum entries, to cruise and ferry offers. With a Eurail Select Pass, the benefits, like the connections it provides, are everywhere.
