Things to know

Who can buy a rail pass?

Any person living in a non-European country can use the Eurail Global Pass. Please note that residents of Russia and Turkey are not eligible.

Seat reservation

A seat reservation is a guaranteed seat on board a train.

Seat reservations are compulsory for high speed, international and night trains. However, as you will be travelling with a rail pass, you will only have to pay for a small reservation fee, as opposed to the usual standard fare.

Seats are generally available for reservation up to 90 days prior to departure and are limited. Book early to secure your seat!
Book a seat reservation with Rail Europe.

Our tip:
Most regional trains do not require a seat reservation. Just hop on board with a valid rail pass, find a seat and relax as the train takes you to one of the many destinations served.

What is a Saver Pass?

A Saver Pass is a single pass listing the names of all people travelling together. It is offered to families or groups of 2 to 5 people.

  • Adults usually get a 15% discount with a Saver Pass.
  • Remember, children can travel for free with an adult. See conditions below.

Child concessions

Children under 4 travel for free. Do not include them in your booking as they don’t need a rail pass. However if you want them to have a guaranteed seat on board high speed trains or a bed on board night trains, you must make a reservation before travelling.

Children from 4 to 11 travel for free. As a rail pass will still be issued for them, please make sure you include them in your booking. For guaranteed seats on board high speed and night trains, please remember to book a seat for you and your children.

How to use a rail pass?

You must start using your rail pass within 6 months of the date of purchase.

To start using your rail pass, go to a European railway station where a railway official will fill-in your passport number and stamp your rail pass. On each travel day, please remember to write down the date on your rail pass. You should record your trip in the Travel Report on the rail pass cover.
Passengers travelling without having written down the above information risk a fine and payment of a full fare ticket.

Travel day

A travel day lasts 24 hours from midnight to midnight.You can take as many trains as you want during a travel day.

Our tip:
The 7 pm rule allows you to benefit from a free travel day if the following conditions are met:

  • Your pass should be activated.
  • You must travel on board a night train departing after 7 pm and this should be your first trip of the day.
  • You must reach your destination after 4 am on the next day.
  • Your arrival date should be within the validity of the pass.
If the conditions are met, write the arrival date on your pass instead of the departure date. This will allow you to save one travel day.


The validity is the number of travel days of a rail pass.

You can choose between flexible and consecutive validities.

Flexible validities allow you to choose which days you want to travel within the period covered by your rail pass.
E.g. For a rail pass with a validity of 5 days within 1 month. If you activate your rail pass on the 1st of the month, you can travel on the 3rd, 4th, 7th, 12th and 30th of this month.

Consecutive validities give you unlimited travel during consecutive days.
E.g. For a rail pass with a validity of 3 days continuous. By activating your rail pass on the 1st of the month, you can use it until the 3rd.

  • "we are satisfied"

    Hi... im noera. We were at europe in last april till may 2014. We used eurail global pass 14 days and we were 5 persons. it was our first time went ro europe. And after discussed we fixed to use eurail for moving from 1 country to another. The room at the train were great because we were at first class. When we go from vienna to venezia we got compartment in 2nd class, but was great too. Services were really excellent in counter or at the train. Every we showed our pass the staff was excited and gave us some ideas and informations about the place that we went after. For money it is expensive but equivalent with services at first class train. If we buy the ticket one by one it will cost more expensive then buy the pass. we will come back to europe and will use this pass again. thanks eurorail global pass to make our journey comfort, save, convenience, and great.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Great way to travel"

    I enjoyed my trip with eurail very much. Its very convenient. However a lot of railway employees are not trained to sale eurail tickets nor do they know the value/basic reservation fees/ rules of eurail pass so they can make mistakes very often. And tickets machines did not provide options for eurail pass which really suck... Please improve this . Thank you.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Excellent value for money"

    Had a wonderful 6 week trip around Europe. Except some glitches at France, the rest of the journey was smooth and efficient. Germany tops the list.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Reservation changes"

    Hi, Some times the reservations changes are so expensive, it made more sense to buy a local ticket without rail pass.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Europe by Rail"

    I travelled through Europe for 5 weeks by rail. The experience was amazing. Rail travel is far more convenient (and faster if you consider airport standby times etc). Non-euro residents cannot purchase 2nd class tickets and therefore must pay double for a 1st class pass. Nevertheless I will always travel via rail through Europe. Lastly, I have posted my travel documents to Rail Europe and have yet to receive my gift and my returned itinerary.    Value for money

    This is the most awesome experience I've ever had...Thank you for the wonderful experience.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Great"

    All is good.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Italy - Germany"

    Traveled over 15 days using long distance fast trains and local trains. we covered thousands of k's and enjoyed every moment. Trains in general are fast, clean, comfortable, on time and efficiently run. We had no trouble reserving seats (not that everyone considers that to be your seat when you get on) and found reservation staff at stations helpful and friendly. We didn't like being in a compartment for one trip and would specify a non-compartment carriage for any future trips. Our experience was that the food on board is not worth paying for - better to take your own if the trip is long enough to warrant it. all in all, great!  
  • "Family trip"

    My wife passed away by cancer June 2013, that's why I'd decided to have my two daughters travel with for memorize her, we have a very good trip along the european continent, France is our first rated country, although we'd been to Paris before(four of us), three of us tour Strasboug and Kandersteg Swizland, Lugano, and most of the Italy, we like the Freeziano train, beautiful, Germany trains were the most convenient, we don't have to pay for reservation, James    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Europe trip July"

    It was nice to travel by trains in Europe. To get reservation on Thalys trains was not possible with the Eurail pass even if one tried well in advance. Otherwise the trip was good.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Euro exploring"

    Buying a Eurail pass was the best decision I made before heading over to Europe. It allowed me to explore freely and easily. I was well impressed by the standard of the trains and how comfortable they were. A highly recommended way to see Europe!    Value for money  Convenience
