Transport on a budget


There are many things you can do to keep your costs for transport down. Check out some of our tips below.

Avoid train reservations

We know you’d rather spend your money on memorable moments than on train reservations. Although most high-speed trains require a reservation fee, it’s often possible to research an alternative route. Usually this means taking a slower train, but it does save on extra costs and often adds another element to your adventure. Read more about tips on avoiding reservations

Use your travel days wisely 

If you have a Eurail One Country Pass or a Eurail Global Pass with flexible travel days, it’s worth thinking about how you use each travel day. Try to use your travel days for longer or multiple train journeys and if you want to travel a short distance, buy a separate ticket or take a cheap bus. 

Get around on public transport or bike


  • Usually big cities have a number of train stations, so you can often move locally with your Eurail Pass.

  • If you’re going to be in a city for a few days, a travel card (for the bus, tram or metro) will often save you money on buying single tickets.

  • Rent a bike and experience a town or city at your own pace. Some cities are more geared up for cyclists than others. For example, Amsterdam is a cyclist's paradise, though it might seem crazy when you first set off!
