You go to their website, and look at the map to find out which countries are involved. I know it has changed since my day.

Traveling: You get on the trains, and go…wait! Most runs require you to book seats. Again, a change since my day. You have to reserve the seats at the ticket windows. And they cost. Many runs also have surcharges which you have to pay for at the ticket windows. I’m sure you get packages that explain those things when you buy the pass.

How much you pay depends on how old you are…If you qualify for the Youthpass, it’s much less expensive, much more worthwhile, and you travel second class. They are pretty strict that you can’t sort of overflow into the first class compartments.

Yes, when you buy a train pass, you still have to buy an air ticket, unless you plan to walk/swim to the first train station.
