Ever since the TGV launched, in 1981, high-speed premier trains have been the preferred—and more stylish—way to shuttle between some of Europe's major hubs. Reservations are required, so plan ahead and follow this advice to lock in the best rates.

Book Early Reserve at least two weeks ahead, travel at off-peak times, and
buy nonrefundable, round-trip tickets.

Buy Online Since it's difficult to book directly with an individual train
line until you're in Europe, buy tickets through Rail Europe (800/438-7245;
Its newly revamped system now allows travelers to reserve seats on premier trains and to buy
point-to-point tickets on slower local and regional trains.

Get a Pass While Eurail passes can't be used carte blanche on premier-level
trains, they will get you big discounts on most intercity routes and are worth considering
for a trip that takes in several destinations. The passes are now available in dozens of configurations
for first-class travel on non-premier trains, from single-country options to the original
multination whopper (; $605
for a 15-day, 18-country pass). —Meeghan Truelove
