How to find night train tickets for European night trains


Buying Night Train Tickets

Overnighting on a European train

You can buy night train tickets for night train routes in Europe as individual tickets or you can take a night train trip on a Eurail pass. Reserving a sleeper or couchette on a night train costs extra -- all reservations on European trains using your Eurail pass cost a few dollars more but guarantee you a seat or berth.

All European night train tickets can be purchased individually -- you can make single ticket reservations online (read more before you click, though) after you buy a Eurail pass or make your reservation at the train station window up to a half hour before the train leaves. You can upgrade to a sleeper on a night train then, too.
