Things to know before booking the Eurail Global Pass

Eurail Global Pass
  • Choose the right pass: Optimum use of the pass is achieved by customizing it to meet your travel needs. Decide between Continuous or Flexi, and first or second class, based on your travel budget, itinerary, and comfort needs. 
  • Activation: Your pass is not valid for travel unless it is activated using the Rail Planner app. Activation can be done at any time within 11 months of purchase. If you have a last-minute change of plans after activation you can still change until midnight before your first travel day.
  • Seat reservations: Seat reservations are not included in your Eurail Global Pass. Find out when reservations are required and book the seats early. 
  • Child policy: Children aged below 4 travel for free as long as they do not occupy a seat. 2 children aged between 4 and 11 can travel for free with an adult carrying an Adult Pass (not Senior/Youth Pass). A Youth Pass must be obtained for every extra child.  
  • Travel days: A travel day lasts from 12:00 AM to 11:59 PM CET. It is the period during which you can travel on trains. If you take overnight trains and do not change trains after midnight, you will only use one travel day - the day of departure. 
  • Night trains: If you plan strategically, night trains can save your travel days. In most cases, night trains require seat reservations but it also means that you will be cutting down on accommodation costs. 
  • Documents: While filling out your passport and other details during purchase, make sure it is an exact match to your passport. Be sure to carry your Pass, passport & visa, and seat reservation tickets (if needed).

Frequently asked questions

What is a Eurail Global Pass and how much does it cost?

A Eurail Global Pass is a single train pass that permits unlimited train travel in 33 European countries. It is meant for the sole use of residents living outside Europe. The pass prices depend on the type of pass chosen but start from €258.

Can we avail Eurail Global Pass at reduced rates for children?

Yes, children aged 4 and below travel for free. 2 children aged 11 and below can travel free of charge with an adult carrying an Adult Pass. If there are more children, a Youth Pass must be obtained for each of them. Additionally, Eurail also has discounted passes for youth aged 27 and below and seniors aged 60 and above. 

How long is a travel day?

A travel day lasts from 12:00 AM to 11:59 PM CET. Travel day is a 24-hour period during which your Eurail Pass is valid for train journeys. For Continuous Passes, these travel days are consecutive while for Flexi Passes, you can choose them. 

Do overnight trains take two travel days?

No, if you do not change trains after midnight, overnight trains use only one travel day - the day of departure. However, if you do change trains, you will have to use up 2 travel days. Do keep in mind that you cannot use your Eurail Pass on an overnight train on the last travel day, as the pass expires at 11:59 PM. 

When should I activate my Eurail Pass?

You can activate your Eurail Global Pass anytime within the first 11 months of purchase. Check out the How to Use Eurail Pass page for more information. 

Can I cancel my travel day once it has been added to the pass?

Yes, you can change or cancel the travel day any time before the start of the date (00:00 hours). Once the travel day has started, you cannot cancel or modify it. 

How do I show my ticket to the ticket inspector?

To find your ticket on the Rail Planner app, go to “My Pass” and select “Show ticket”. The barcode will be scanned and the inspector will check whether the train you are traveling on is added as a journey to the Pass.

What is the difference between first and second class?

The primary difference between first and second class is the level of comfort, facilities available, and even the number of people traveling. The pricier first class makes up for that money by offering more privacy, and quiet surroundings for work and relaxation with better amenities. The second class is better suited for budget-conscious travelers who require a comfortable ride. First-class passes are valid in both first and second class while second-class passes are valid only in second class. 

What personal details should I provide while booking a Eurail Global Pass?

Your name, country of residence, and passport number should be entered exactly as on the passport while booking a Eurail Global Pass. While on the train journey, carry your Eurail Global Pass, passport, visa/residence permit, and seat reservation tickets (if needed). 

Is a Eurail Global Pass worth it?

If convenience and cost-efficiency are of priority to you, a Eurail Global Pass is totally worth it. Many deem it the easiest way to travel within Europe, eliminating the need to queue up at ticket counters for every ride and wasting time. The logistics of arranging a trip by train can be done online with the pass and you can save money while at it. It is also much for hassle-free and sustainable than choosing to fly from out-of-town airports.

Can I deactivate my pass if I have rescheduled my trip even after activation?

Eurail Global Pass can be activated within 11 months post-purchase. Fortunately, if you activated the pass and incurred a last-minute change of plans, you can change it until midnight before your first travel day.
