Save Money and Have a Better Experience by Buying Europe Train Passes Before you Leave Home
Why buy Eurail passes at European Station and have the displeasure of dealing with fully booked trains? Get your Europe train pass before you leave home. Buying a Eurail pass at the station is more expensive than buying them from your travel agent before you leave home in Canada. Jubilee Travel can get you special prices on passes and will have them delivered to you at your home address. On average, you can save about 20% on the price compared to buying your passes in Europe.
In recent years, almost every long-distance train ride in Europe has their tickets on sale as much as 6 months before and they are at very low prices. As the dates get closer and fewer seats are available, the prices increase. Your travel agent is in tuned with these sales and can provide you with the cheapest possible way to get passes, which is buying at least 30 days in advance. Especially in holiday times and summer months. The most expensive way to buy a Eurail Pass is buying at the European station. Not only will you get cheaper passes but it will allow you to be more prepared and you avoid any interruptions to your trip.
Here are some of the countries that sell their tickets in advance:
• France: 4 months early for most
