What is Interrail?
The Interrail Pass is a ticket allowing you to travel within Europe by train with only one ticket. The Interrail pass works in 33 countries and gives you access to 40 000 different destinations.
Interrail allows you to explore and discover different European destinations in a practical and adventurous way where you always are in charge of where to go next. On some trains, you must make a seat reservation in advance. If you travel with an Interrail Pass, you will get a discount on the trains where a seat reservation is required. Discounts on ferries, buses, and museums are other benefits you can enjoy with your Interrail Pass.
With the Interrail Pass, you can sit back and enjoy the view while traveling between your chosen destinations.
No matter how old you are, whether you travel alone or in a group, want to be spontaneous, or plan the whole journey beforehand, there is an Interrail Pass that will suit your journey. Every European citizen can travel with Interrail.
The Interrail Pass is discounted for youths up to 27 years old and for seniors over 60 years old. For children under 12, the Interrail Pass is free in the company of an adult who holds an Interrail Pass.
Note that the age of your first day of travel is the age the Interrail Pass should reflect.
One adult can bring 2 children free of charge. The child Passes need to be booked together with the adult Pass.

How do I Count my Travel Days?
A travel day is a 24-hour period in which you can travel on trains with your Interrail Pass. It lasts from 00:00 (midnight) to 23:59 on the same calendar day. You can access the train networks where your Interrail Pass is valid on each travel day.
When traveling on a night train, you only need to write down the day of departure. For example, if you travel on a night train from June 6 to 7, you only write down June 6. If you change trains after midnight, a new travel day will start.
On the night train departure day, you can take as many trains as you want; since it's on the same day. If you take another train after the night train has arrived, you'll have to use a new travel day.

With the Interrail Global Pass, you choose a certain amount of travel days and a validity period. Your traveling days can only be used during the period of validity stated on your Interrail Pass.
The Pass is perfect for those who want to travel to several countries; it can be a planned- or spontaneous trip. The choice is yours.
How do I Choose the Right Pass for me?
Decide which cities or destinations you want to visit. It might be a city break or a longer journey. The possibilities are endless. It will be easier to choose the right Pass most suited for you if you have an approximate idea of your travel plans.
Are you traveling from your country of residence and back again? The Pass allows one outbound and one inbound journey within your country of residence. Note that these journeys count as travel days on your Interrail Pass.
The number of travel days is decided by you. You can choose between a Continuous Pass or a Flexi Pass. If you have a Pass with a certain amount of travel days, it's only when you actively travel that these days will be counted. With a Continuous Pass, the travel days are counted every day.
