Yes, but you may have less options and pay more: www.wikihow.com: Visit a Eurail Aid Office if you need help with your Eurail Pass, or if you arrive in Europe without having purchased a pass. Eurail Aid Offices are almost always located within large train stations; consult the list at //www.eurail.com/eurail-aid-offices to find one in your ...

The best way to find out whether you need a reservation on a certain train is to look up the train in a rail planner. I use the German planner for this, as it is easy to use and gives good information. Enter the cities you want to travel and adjust date and time of day, if traveling more than a few months from the time you check, just pick a random date but ...

Eurail Pass Explained In general the Eurail pass is valid on train lines only. Metropolitan public transport is usually not included in such rail-passes. The Man in Seat 61 says: Railpasses cover all the trains run by the main national train operator in each country covered by the pass, including local trains, suburban trains, regional trains, ...

From my experience, you can. I'm from New Zealand, and bought my 10 day Eurail pass in Luxembourg last year. I used it in Luxembourg, Germany and Poland, but could have used it in any of the other Eurail zone countries.

There is no direct train. You have to change in Warsaw or Poznan. However, via the webiste of the German Railways (bahn.de), it is possible to book a bus from Berlin to Krakow for 29 EUR. There are also other operatoirs on that route (e.g. Eurolines). The following thread may be relevant too What is the cheapest way of traveling from Berlin to Krakow?

There are no limits to the pass. You are allowed to take as many trips all across the EuRail countries. This is valid even for trains which require supplements or reservations. As long as you have the valid supplement or reservation, there is no limit to the pass on those trains as well. I spent 3 months with the pass traveling across most of Western Europe ...

Your whole trip is covered by the Eurail pass, but you should pay for reservations. If you go to the website for Eurail pass, there is a page specifically for international trains. For the Eurostar from London to Paris, you must reserve a seat. In 2nd class, it is worth 89 euros. On the page for night trains, it says that CityNightLine trains are ...

The Nantes–La Rochelle–Bordeaux line is an intercités line; intercités trains have no compulsory reservation. From Rennes to Nantes, you would take a TER (regional train), also without reservation. (Depending on the times, you might end up with a different mixture of TER and intercités, but my point is that this journey does not involve trains requiring a ...

I would advise against getting a Eurail pass. Eurail is nothing more than a travel agency, that has a product that is designed to appeal to persons unfamiliar with the European Railway System. WIth a Eurail Pass you will still have to make reservations, and pay reservation charges for the high speed trains you want to take in France. And you'll discover ...

If you plan in advance then a rail pass is hardly interesting. Moreover, if you are flexible, in the sense that you are willing to take a bus for one leg or another, you will save money by not buying a pass. Some time ago, when I was young and crisp, rail passes were really cool. At that time, nobody was talking about "low cost" airlines, bus lines were ...

It is hard to advise for or against Railpasses, such as Eurail or Interrail. The Man in Seat 61 lists some arguments. Without knowing where you want to go, how flexible you want to be and how old you are, it is difficult to advise for or against. There is also a thread on this site: What is preferable, Eurail Pass or Buying Pass on the spot? In ...

Refer to the eurail site itself for all that information - see here for information on reservation on regional trains; in short: there's very little exceptions to the rule that regional trains don't require reservation. Here is a list (by country) of where reservation is needed or optional and what the cost would be. There's also a feature to avoid trains ...
