Rail Passes

There are many types of Eurail Passes available alongside a great collection of regional and single-country rail passes. If you’ve lived in Europe for more than six months or you’re a resident of the Russian Federation, Turkey, Morocco, Algeria or Tunisia you’re inelegible for a Eurail pass. For non-Europeans, a rail pass can be an enjoyable, affordable and stress-free option for getting around the continent.
