Train Question, please help

So I need to take a Saturday morning train from Frankfurt to Antwerp. Is the only place that offers tickets online the raileurope site? The $175 seems really high for a ticket of that length and I'm wondering if I'd be better off buying somewhere else... anyone with some better familiarity with the transit system I'd love the insights.

anyone familiar with this site: http://www.b-europe.com/Travel/Pract...ntact%20Center
The same tickets seem to be $39Euro rather than $175USD

91 Euros + extras. Did you try changing dates or flying part way? 49 Euros on other dates.

In general, for multi day rail passes, RailEurope and other consolidators are price competitive. However, for point-to-point tickets, your better off purchasing when you get to germany and buying directly through Deutschebahn.

For whatever its worth, my experience from almost 5 years ago was that RailEurope was rather expensive compared to what I could do across the language barrier in person. And this was in Italy where the language barrier is a little steeper. Use of RailEurope does create a little certainty of outcome, and that may be worth it for people that do not tolerate uncertainty well. There is also some value to ones time in a hot, humid train station that use of RailEurope would minimize.
