All about Eurail Passes

British T.I.P.S. is proud to be an official supplier for Eurail (European rail). We can assist with booking rail passes for more extensive travel AND individual journeys in many countries in Europe.

But what exactly is a Eurail Pass and how do you choose one? 

Eurail Pass in a nutshell

A Eurail Pass is a single travel document that allows you to travel by train in one or more European countries. Passes are available in various validities and you can travel as much as you like on one day, which makes it a really economical way of using the extensive rail network that many European countries have to offer.

National (Regional) passes cover travel in one country, for example, France, Germany, or Italy.

Eurail Global passes cover travel in 31 countries in Europe. Note that, if you are going to be crossing a border during your travels, your pass needs to cover that too.

Flexi Pass vs Consecutive Pass

Consecutive Pass:

  • Valid for a set number of days in a row. 
  • Available for 15, 22 days or 1, 2 or 3 months.
  • Make as many train journeys as you like in one day – passes are restricted by days not journeys. 

FlexiPass

  • Your travel days don’t need to be consecutive – you can travel for a set number of days over a period of 1 or 2 calendar months (depending on the pass).
  • For example: if you start using a 4-day pass on 01 January, you have 3 remaining days that you can use until 01 February inclusive.
  • Available as 3, 5 or 7 days in 1 month OR 10, 15 days in 2 months.
  • Make as many train journeys as you like in one day – passes are restricted by days not journeys. 

Very important: Choose your rail pass according to how much travel you want to do and NOT on how long you’ll be in the country! For example: if you’re in the country for 10 days but want to travel on 4 days, then you need a 4-day pass and not a 10-day pass. Otherwise, you may end up spending way more money than you actually need to. If you’re unsure which one to choose, let us know and we can assist you.
