I paid for an italia rail pass with tickets but the tickets bought were not any cheaper, why is that?
I bought tickets from Milan to Rome and there was an option to buy an italia rail pass which would include benefits such as cheaper pricing. I looked through the Q&A section and a question was answered that the italia rail pass was the same as the eurail pass. But when I bought the tickets, the price was still $30 or so. So when I went back to search for the same tickets but input that I have a eurail 1st class pass, the price was changed to around $12. Why is that? And if so, can I refund my purchased tickets to buy the cheaper priced ones with the pass?
