Who can buy a Eurail pass?

The Eurail Pass is available for purchase by non-European citizens and residents. European citizens can buy an Interrail pass for the same price as a Eurail pass. If you are non-European but are an official resident of Europe, you should get an Interrail pass.

How long is a travel day?​

A travel day lasts 24 hours from 00:00 CET until 23:59 CET, and you can travel on as many trains as you want within that time frame – it still counts as using one travel day. If you are using a night train that departs in the evening and arrives directly the next day then only one travel day is used – your day of departure.

How many days are there in the one month validity period?

If a Eurail pass is valid for a month, it means that it is valid for the number of days that are in the month that it starts. For example, if the pass start date is in July, the pass will be valid for 31 days, but if the pass start date is in June, the pass will only be valid for 30 days. If you depart on 12th August, your pass will be valid until 11th September. This is all taken into account by our Eurail planning tool’s pass tracking feature.

What is a mobile pass?

The Eurail mobile pass is a paperless ticket that can be added instantly to your smartphone. It runs on Eurail’s own app so you can get train timetables and digitally add journeys and keep track of the number of travel days you’ve used up.

It has the added flexibility of not having to choose a start date until you actually want to use it. You can buy it up to 11 months before you want to travel. 

And, if you lose your phone while travelling, Eurail will replace your pass for free.

When does my Eurail pass start?

With Eurail mobile passes, you activate your pass when you make your first journey. The pass must be activated within 11 months of the purchase date.

When purchasing a paper pass, you must provide the start date at checkout. This is then printed on your pass and the validity date therefore starts from them, regardless of when your first journey is. Paper passes can also be purchased up to 11 months in advance of travelling.

Is public transport included on my Eurail pass?

No, public transport is generally not included on your pass.
