While Eurail passes may be the most convenient way to get around Europe by rail, sometimes you can save money by using individual point-to-point tickets or a combination of both. However, sorting out train schedules and rail pass possibilities on your own can be a daunting task. Luckily, RailSaver.com makes it easy to figure out what you need for your journey.
I tested several routes looking for the cheapest option, and RailSaver gave specific recommendations for each leg of the journey. I found it particularly useful for planning trips that would involve a combination of passes and individual tickets.
The site isn’t perfect, however. The RailSaver tool just lists the tickets and passes you ought to buy. To book, you’ll have to search for each pass or ticket separately. And in the case of point to point, it is sometimes best to purchase tickets at the station in Europe. Contact a RailSaver sales representative by calling 888-724-5727 to make sure you make the best purchase decision for your travels.
