Eurail Drive Pass
Combine first class rail travel with car rental. 4 days by rail/3 days by car. Prices are per person, based on two people travelling together. Included: unlimited mileage, basic insurance, taxes and free drop-off in the country of rental. Also available are up to five additional rail days plus unlimited additional days with rental car, car upgrades and more. Price: 7 days from USD 339 (in 1996).
This ticket, available to North American travelers through European railway company representatives in North America, is issued only to non-European residents. It is good for unlimited first class travel in 17 European countries, including Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden. Children under 4 travel free. Children 4-11 receive a 50% discount.
Rates are per adult when two to five people travel together in first class. Children under 4 travel free. Children 4-11 receive a 50% discount.
Regular point-to-point tickets are fine when all you want is one or two short rail trips. As a general rule of thumb, if your plans call for at least 700 miles of travel within a two-week period, then a pass is your best buy: otherwise, consider regular tickets. If purchased in North America they include most fast train surcharges levied in Europe. However, neither rail passes nor regular tickets cover supplements for City Express of X2000 high speed trains in Sweden. Group reductions: 10 to 24 paying adults: 20% reduction. 25 and more paying adults: 40% reduction.
