Hello Lynne,

Thanks for your question.

I would suggest you to purchase a Swiss Pass and a Benelux Pass. These passes will cover the regional trains of Switzerland and Benelux (Belgium, The Netherlands, and Luxembourg).

Please note with a Benelux Pass pass you can only travel on Thalys night train (high speed train) from Paris to Rotterdam only. However if you wish to travel on Thalys on other sectors you would need to purchase additional reservations.

Please note that reservations are mandatory on most international trains, on all night trains, scenic trains, and high-speed trains.

For your travel from Manchester to Paris via London, you would have to purchase point to point tickets.

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

Hope this helps.
