Best Customer Service for Traveling in Europe!

So I'm off to Europe the day after Christmas and one way I'll be getting around is by train. I've used all types of transportation through Europe in the past but for some reason trains are the best. Yes, they may not get you from point A to point B in the fastest amount of time, but you get a great view of the country side and who doesn't like riding in a train?

I decided to buy a Eurail Pass, which to be honest is a great buy! I bought a 15 day consecutive Global pass which allows me to travel to any country in Europe during a 15 day period without having to buy a train ticket. It cost me just over $450 which sounds like a lot but I just spoke to a friend over there now who bought a one way ticket from Amsterdam to Munich for $380. So, I'd have to say it was a great buy.

But the pass itself isn't why I'm writing this review. Their customer service is phenomenal! I use twitter on a daily basis and whenever I had a question they were quick to answer me. I don't think I waited loner than a few minutes for an answer on twitter. Also I called them to ask about insurance and they were as friendly as can be. I feel like their staff are all travelers who love Europe as well which helps them get excited about my trip.

I;m looking forward to using their customer service while I'm in Europe vis Twitter which will be great! If anything goes wrong or I have a question I can just shoot out a tweet and within minutes i'll have a answer. I wont have to wait on hold on the phone for a long time, or sit through a 10 minute button pressing wild goose chase. 

I highly recommend going with Eurail if you're planning a trip to Europe!
