Hi all, I'm planning to go on Interrail from 10th - 31st August, all routes are already planned. Now I'm unsure about whether I should take a FLEXI or CONTINOUS pass. Here is my routing:
Start date: 10th August
10th-11th: Overnight from Switzerland to Olomouc (CZ) via Austria, I can use a direct night train from my hometown to Austria, so the 7pm-rule applies. QUESTION: I can use the rule here (so only 11th counts), because it's not my start date (which is 10th), right?
12th-13th: Overnight Olomouc - Leipzig, I have to take both days.
14th: Leipzig - Frankfurt, one day.
17th: Frankfurt - Mannheim, one day.
18th: Mannheim - Düsseldorf, Düsseldorf - Luxemburg, one day
21st: Luxemburg - Amsterdam, one day
25th-26th: Amsterdam - Rotterdam - Hoek van Holland - Ferry - Harwich - London, two days used
31st: Flight back from City Airport, no day used 8)
So, I have nine travel days now. My plan is to visit major airports in Europe and go planespotting (=taking photos of aircrafts). So I will have to get from Frankfurt City to the Airport Area by ICE or local traffic, same goes for Amsterdam and the London Area. I could use more Interrail-days there, as I probably will spend most of the time at the airports (just 1 or 2 days in the city). QUESTION: Would you advise me to take a FLEXI-Pass over a CONTINOUS-Pass? Then I'd have to pay for the short trips from city to airport. Or would it be more comfortable (and probably cheaper?) to take a full 22-days Pass?
Thanks for you answers, it's my first Interrail-Trip!
