Does Eurrail passes only work on certain rail companies? How likely would it be that you'd have to buy additional tickets?

There is a difference between Eurail and Interrail passes depending on your country of origin that Kate has written about them over here:

The difference between Interrail and Eurail

If you're British you can buy an Interrail pass. However you need to do your research since the pass isn't valid on all trains. For example, the Eurostar gives a discount on tickets but they are not free. Additionally on top of the pass, on more popular trains (like high speed intercity trains) you also need to buy a seat reservation.

So, it depends on your itinerary. They can still be good value for money if you are travelling a lot, but if you are only making a handful of stops over a longer period then it might be cheaper to buy point to point tickets.

Hope that helps!
