Eurail Travel Classes

You can choose to travel in either 1st or 2nd class when you purchase your pass, this choice is available on any of the pass types, Youth, Adult, Child and Senior.

1st Class

Larger seats, tend to be quieter and sometimes have wifi and free refreshments.

2nd Class

Standard seat sizes, generally busier than 1st class, wifi sometimes available.
ERG Tip: First class is a lot more expensive and on many trains in Europe it's rarely worth the premium, consider upgrading on specific journeys if you'd prefer the extra luxuries offered by 1st class.
