Travel to Spain and Portugal
In the Eurail Select Pass, Spain is bordered by Portugal and Italy. France is not part of the Select Pass and is therefore not a bordering country. Here’s how you can travel to Spain and Portugal (you must travel through Spain to reach Portugal) with a Eurail Select Pass:
- From Italy you can take a discounted ferry to Spain.
- From Paris you can take the Elipsos night train to Madrid or Barcelona (you must buy point-to-point tickets to travel within France).
