Hello Alan,

Thanks for your question.

Please note that a rail pass allows you to travel extensively within the countries you have chosen. If you plan only 2 - 3 train journeys during your stay in Europe, point to point tickets will certainly be cheaper than a rail pass.

As you are travelling extensively within Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden, I suggest that you purchase a Eurail Scandinavia Pass

With this Pass you can travel free on the regional and intercity trains within Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.

However for your travel from Helsinki to St Petersburg, you would have to purchase point to point tickets.

- Helsinki to St Petersburg - Allegro train

Reservations are mandatory on high-speed trains, night trains, scenic trains and border crossing trains.

With a Pass the seat reservations will be offered at discounted fares (Pass holder fares).

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on "book a compulsory seat reservation when using your rail pass”

You can also refer to our travel magazine Connexion for sample itineraries of Europe.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website http://www.raileurope.com.au/

Hope this helps.
