A trip around Europe is too often an unchecked item on people’s bucket lists. It is nothing short of a dream for many to be spending time trekking across the Swiss Alps, visiting the art galleries in Rome, shopping in France, and more.

While getting to Europe is easy enough, getting around can be tricky if not planned right.

The best option to get around Europe is by train. There are few railway networks in the world as efficient and comfortable as the European rail networks. The comfort of the journey is only enhanced by the picturesque scenes that travellers have an insight to while touring the charming continent by train.

Of course, the steep prices might seem daunting at first, but that’s where International Rail comes in.

Economical and enormously efficient, International Rail offers the InterRail Global Pass, which covers train transit across Europe, all on one pass. Wherever you want to go, and whenever you want to go, these rail passes allow you to build your journey according to your schedule and plan.

With InterRail Global Pass you can visit close to 30 countries with just one pass! No tickets, no queuing—just simple, hassle-free travel across Europe.

What’s more, International Rail can help you avail of an attractive discount on your pass, as well, depending on the time of booking and travel. To top it off, there are special discounts for senior citizens and children available, too.

The benefits of the InterRail Global Pass don’t end there – as a pass-holder, you can also avail discounts on select ferries, certain European hotels and hostels, museums and local transport, and much more.

If you’re looking to travel across single countries in Europe, we also offer single country passes such as InterRail Great Britain Pass, InterRail Germany Pass, InterRail Switzerland Pass and more.

An Interrail Global Pass may only be used for limited free travel within the country of residence of the traveller. It is only valid for two trips in this country (provided it is an Interrail member country). These trips are referred to as the outbound and inboundjourney.

This must be written in black or blue before embarkation on a special form that will be provided at the time of purchase and which will need to be produced for validation on request. You should also include details of any journeys made, where it has been necessary to purchase an additional ticket. A day runs from 00.00 to 23.59. If a journey is taken on a direct overnight train, which departs on the day before the day of arrival, the date for entry on the pass is the day of arrival. With an overnight ferry, the date for entry on the pass is either the day of departure or the day of arrival. Travel may not be taken before the first day of validity of the pass or after the last day of validity.

What can be used as proof of citizenship?

Citizenship can be proved using a valid passport or an ID card. An ID card in this case is classed as an ID document that allows you to travel across borders. Train staff have the right to check your nationality, so make sure you always have your passport or ID card with you. A driving licence is not accepted.

What can be used as proof of residence?

Residence can be proved using official government-issued residency papers. This must be a document that clearly shows that you are a resident of the country you live in (e.g. a residence card). Documents such as bills, rental contracts or bank statements cannot be used. Working visas and/or travel visas can also not be used as proof of residency. The residency field of a passport can also not be used as proof of residence.
