InterRail Pass

The Railcard

The InterRail pass is a great way of seeing Europe by train. It saves you money, and allows for a great deal of flexibility in where and when you travel. As opposed to theEurail Pass, InterRail passes can be bought only by European residents.

There are basically two options when buying your InterRail ticket. You can choose either to travel within just one country (or some smaller countries are grouped) or travel within all 30 participating countries.

Options

The 'One Country Pass' is the cheapest option, and allows the pass holder to travel on most railways within their chosen country. The holder can choose which days they travel on, and passes are available for a total of 3, 4, 6 or 8 days within the one month validity period. One important factor to note is that you can't buy a 'One Country Pass' for the country in which you normally reside, and you must have been a resident of one of the participating countries for at least 6 months before your first date of travel.

The 'Global Pass' is valid on all of the participating rail networks, but again is not valid in the passholders home country (although a discount is available on the return ticket out of the home country). There is a choice of two passes, the 'Global FlexiPass' and the 'Global Consecutive Pass'. The FlexiPass is valid for either 5 days of travel within a 10 day period, or 10 days of travel within a 22 day period. The Consecutive Pass is valid for either 22 or one month of consecutive travel days.

Child, youth and adult tickets are also available.
