Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Though the concept of the Eurail pass is simple enough, the reality is far more complex. The dizzying variety of options including Eurail passes, national rail passes, and individual fares for various age groups and time frames are all explained here, along with extras such as connecting buses and ferries. The country-by-country travel information is arranged by city. Updated annually, this budget guide includes helpful information for leisurely impromptu travel, but while the information is good, it's very limited in the areas of accommodations, sights, and, importantly, travel times. Readers are referred to Thomas Cook's European Timetable and Wood's own Cheap Sleeps Europe. While the information is reliable and well written, libraries will want to consider more inclusive titles like Europe by Eurail 1999 (Globe Pequot, 1998), which works from base cities, and Eurail & Train Travel Guide to Europe (Houghton, 1998. 3d ed.), which uses a variety of itineraries. These guides contain much of the same information as Europe by Train but in a less chatty, more compact format. Both are superior for travel times and routes and will be more useful for advance planning.--Megan S. Farrell, Univ. of Southwestern Louisiana, Lafayette Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
