The Eurail paper passbook, which has been used for the last 60 years for train tickets for European travel, is soon going to don a new look as it goes digital.
With its network of over 33 countries, the new digital Eurail passes are now available for purchase online. In celebration of this new offering, Eurail is giving travellers 20% off all Global Passes and select One-country Passes now through 4 January 2021 for travel throughout next year.
With the launch of digital passes, Eurail travellers can now access the all-in-one mobile pass through the Rail Planner App, making it easier than ever to plan trips on the go. In addition to housing the pass itself, the app also incorporates features that assist travellers throughout their journey. It includes the ability to access train schedules offline, conduct advanced searches to see which trains require a reservation ahead of time, and find discounts on ferries, buses, and attractions around the continent. For travellers ready to book their trip, Generator Hostels — one of the many companies that partner with Eurail — is offering a 20% discount on stays booked now through 31 December for travel throughout 2021.
In an effort to give travellers as much flexibility as possible, Eurail passes can be used any time within 11 months of purchase, and there’s no obligation to select a start date for trips in advance. Those looking for additional peace of mind can upgrade to Plus, making each purchase 100% refundable and exchangeable.
