Eurail Launches New Services and Destinations

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 21 January 2015

Eurail has introduced a variety of new products to its Eurail Pass portfolio including new destinations, the Children Travel Free initiative, the first-class Youth Pass, the 5 in 10 days Global Pass and the Attica Pass - a One Country Pass designed with Greek island hopping in mind.

Four new countries join Eurail's Global Pass offer this year. The additions of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Poland and Serbia bring the total to 28 countries that can be explored with the rail pass. The border connections created by this expansion add even more possibilities to the already vast itinerary options. For example, travelers can ride down the east Adriatic coast from Croatia to Montenegro, or stop in Poland on their way from Prague to Berlin.

Children ages 4 to 11 can now ride for free with a family member or friend who is traveling on an Adult Eurail Pass. Up to two children per adult can travel free.

And traveling with children or friends in the 12-to-25 age group has also become easier with the introduction of the first-class Youth Pass. This pass was previously only available in second class. The first-class Youth Pass is now for sale at a 20% discount from the adult cost, so everyone can enjoy the journey together in first-class comfort.

Besides the addition of new countries to the Global Pass product, Eurail has added a new pass category as well. Catering to the fact that not all travelers have an abundance of vacation days to explore 28 countries, the 5 in 10 Days Global Pass option gives customers five travel days anywhere within a 10-day span to visit non-bordering countries of their choice.

Attica Pass: A Greek Island Hopping Pass

Another way Eurail is giving customers more options is with the Attica Pass, a new One Country Pass to the Greek islands by ferry.

With two international trips, customers can use Italy as a jumping-off point. It offers six ferry crossings within one month (the two international trips between Italy and Greece and four domestic trips for island hopping), and takes care of travelers with a rail/bus transfer from the international port of Patras to the domestic port of Piraeus.

Eurail Passes are available from a worldwide network of Authorized General Sales Agents.
