Hello Terry,

Thanks for the question.

It is best to purchase France Rail Pass for your travel in France.

To purchase France Rail Pass click “Here”.

You can purchase point to point ticket for your travel from Amsterdam to Bruges.

You can book and travel as follows:

- Amsterdam to Bruges via Brussels Thalys and Other trains.

- Bruges to Paris via Brussels – Other train and Thalys trains.

- Annecy to Barcelona via Valence – TER and France – Spain High Speed train.

Kindly note that the Booking Horizon for a Pass is 11 months and point to point tickets are 3 months prior your train departure date. Hence you can try booking your Pass by June 2016 and tickets by February 2017.

Keep in mind that seat reservations would be mandatory for all High-Speed, Night, Scenic and Border Crossing trains. But, you will avail pass holder/discounted fares for these journeys with the pass.

In order to book seat reservations, please visit our website www.raileurope.com.au.

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on “Seat Reservations” & feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares.

Please click on the “Fare Details” tab to view details regarding the type of fare, type of seat, whether a reservation is included or not and the After Sales Policy.

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

You would need to feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

Hope this helps!!!

Best Regards,
