Why settle for just once country when you could have thirty?
Want to travel to Europe, but spoilt for choice? Go InterRailing. InterRailing is without a doubt the best way to explore Europe. Offering huge flexibility at a reasonable price, forget flying – choo choose the train instead.
Organising your InterRailing adventure is simple. With an InterRail Global Pass, you have the freedom to travel through a choice of thirty different European countries.
There are two types of Global Pass available to you; a continuous pass, which allows you to travel every day; or a flexi-pass, which limits you to travelling on a certain number of days within a given period, for example, 10 travel days within a 22 day period. A flexi-pass is best for people planning on spending a few days in each place they visit.
Global Passes start from £153 and cost up to £372, depending on the type of ticket you choose, and the amount of time you want to spend travelling.
5 days of travel within 10 days ................... £153
10 days of travel within 22 days ................. £226
Every day for 15 days ................................. £262
Every day for 22 days ................................ £290
Every day for a month ............................... £372
Top tips for InterRailing
- Your Global Pass does not include seat reservations. On some trains, particularly during the busy summer period, it is necessary to book your seats, which will cost you extra. You normally have to book in advance, which limits your freedom for spontaneity.
- Make sure you leave a few days spare on your Global Pass to get home!
- To save wasting precious tourism time, you can catch night trains. These do have sleeper carriages, but they are more expensive.
- Your Global Pass entitles you to a number of in-country discounts for ferries, entrance prices to museums, hotels, and local transportation. See www.interrailnet.com for more information.
