Tips & tricks
- On a train pass with a limited number of travel days (a so called Flex Pass) the travel days are written on the pass itself. All trains must be listed at the designated location on the cover of the pass.
- Do not write down the travel days and trains in advance. If the itinerary changes and it is adjusted on the cover, the conductors may think that 'fraud' is being committed.
- A travel day with the Eurail pass lasts 24 hours, from midnight to midnight (from 00:00 to 23:59). On every travel day you can take as many trains as you want. It is your responsibility to check that all journeys are within the validity of the Eurail Pass.
- The following applies when you are catching a night train. If you are traveling on an Interrail Flexi Pass, you only need to write the day of departure on your pass. The entire journey must be within the validity of the pass. Effectively, it therefore only costs you one travel day of the total available number of travel days.
- The Interrail Pass is an unique document. When your pass gets stolen or lost, you've to buy a new Pass or tickets.
- The Pass might not be valid on private railways, please consult the information per country.
- Many high speed trains or night trains require a compulsory reservation with a supplement payable, please consult the information per country.
