Finally booked my flight (out on may 26th) and will be flying into London, not because I really wanted to see England but because it was cheaper to fly there. After a day or so there i will be taking the chunnel over to Brussels (now we're talking!) when I go to buy that pass it asks for a date, do I really have to have the exact date I will be on the chunnel? And question 2, I plan on seeing Denmark, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, and the Czech Republic while there. I Plan on buying the 10 day in 2 month select pass for these countries (i figure this works seeing as i intend to stay 4-5 days within a few cities in each), and a 4 day in 15 day pass for Czech Republic. Now does that Czech pass get me from the above countries into Czech, or does that Czech pass only work within its borders thus forcing me to buy a pass from the above countries into Czech...Thanks all.

Bonus: If a train leaving NY is going 100 miles an hour, while a train leaving from Miami is going 85 miles and hour, do their conductors smirk knowing some 8th grader is being forced to give a shit when they intersect?

Umm wouldnt say I'm an expert (just now trying to plan my 1st trip), but I might be able to help

What I saw when I was at www.railpass.com was that you can buy a ticket from Dresden, Germany to Prague for like $15 US there and back. I'm just not sure where you buy this. This would mean you would only need the 5 country pass, and then buy a ticket when you get to Dresden. I was just looking at going to prague, so if you are going elsewhere all the single tickets might add up, but I'm not really sure if the czech pass works outside its borders, or how that works. If it doesnt, the $5 in and $10 out isnt that bad of a deal.
