I read this book for planning a trip to Europe. What impressed me at first is the introduction chapter that gave me some tricks and tips and necessary info how to use the EU railway network. The suggesting itinerary is also quite useful. The most confusing thing about the book is the train schedule. It might get obsolete. When I check on the Eurail website, the schedule looks quite different from what is in the book.

I ordered this because I had found the 1997 edition of the Eurail Guide exceptionally well compiled and incisively useful, and secondly because I couldn’t find a current edition of the Eurail Guide. In fact I thought this may have been the current edition I was was looking for. Sadly it is not, and it is not half the book the Eurail Guide was. For me this a rather dull book containing some useful information. I can’t imaging me consulting very often.

Wasted. Simple timetables you can get from Eurail, September 14, 2008

I purchased a version of this guide back in the 90’s, and used it heavily. It was much better back then. It now has very little advice about what would be good, accessible day-trips from any given place, and a lot more timetables. This you can get from Eurail’s website. The timetables helped me a little back in the 90’s because the info was not available for planning from the web. In addition, the options for purchasing passes for one, two, three, multiple countries and timeframes are a ton more complex than they were in the 90’s, and this book did not really help much in figuring out what kind of pass to purchase.

I would use a simple tour-book for the country/region you’re planning to visit, and use the website for planning your trips. For $10, you can actually make reservations online to make trip planning much easier – once you are within 90 days of your trip.

Not worth it.
