Save On a Eurail Pass From Oct. 1 to Year End

September 7, 2015 by

EurailFor frugal travelers who’ve always wanted to see Europe, will be offering 20 percent off of its Global and Select Passes on passes purchased between Oct. 1 and the end of the year.

This drops the price of a first class five-days-within-10 first class Global Pass to under $340 for travel that must be completed by April 1, 2016. Passes take you to popular countries including France, Spain, Italy, Germany and let you visit and explore at your own pace.

Global Pass

Eurail’s Global Pass is the ideal way to see Europe. Make a whistle-stop tour to Europe’s most famous cities like Paris, Rome, and Berlin, with the freedom to venture off and explore lesser known villages and towns along the way.

The Global Pass includes 28 countries in all and is valid for travel with participating train, ferry and public transport companies, too.

Select Pass

The Eurail Select Pass is a less expensive pass that covers 4 bordering countries. You choose the four countries of your liking from 26 European countries. The only limitation is that they must border one another by rail or ferry.

Pass Also Good on Most European Ferry Routes

Another benefit of the Eurail Pass is that it provides discounted and free travel on various European ferry routes. For instance, you can ride the ferry between Greece and Italy for free and make a stop at the island of Corfu in the process.

Reservation and Additional Costs Required For Some Trains

While the Eurail pass offers access to most of Europe’s trains the cost of reservations are not included in the pass. Not all, but on some busy trains a reservation must be made in advance to guarantee a seat. This includes high-speed and night trains, and many trains in France, Italy, and Spain.

Discounts on hotels, museums, and additional public transportation are also available through the Eurail Pass. These passes are only available to non-European residents and must be activated at a European train station within 6 months of the issue date.
