Early birds will catch a break on Eurail Global Pass

Eurail is offering an Early Bird deal which offers non-European residents free travel days on Eurail Global Passes purchased from Feb. 1 through March 31.

Early Bird Passes have a six month pre-booking period and include 15 days, 21 days and one month validities. The offer applies to both first and second class Eurail Global Passes and are open to all travel categories: Adults, Child, and Youth, including Saver Passes intended for groups of two to five people, offering an additional15 percent reduction.

The “Early Bird” campaign offers two extra travel days for the 15-day Eurail Global Pass, three extra travel days for the 21-day Eurail Global Pass and five extra travel days for a one month Eurail Global continuous Pass.

Last year’s Early Bird promotion proved very successful, boosting sales in March of the Global Pass by 96 percent. The opportunity to receive extra travel days motivated nearly twice as many customers to buy the Eurail Global Pass.

Generating more than 55 percent of total sales revenues, the Eurail Global Pass continues to be the most popular pass in the Eurail portfolio. With its 24 participating countries, it covers nearly most of Europe (including free or discounted travel on some major shipping lines) and gives travelers the largest variety of countries to choose from.

Eurail Group G.I.E., the organization dedicated to the marketing and management of the Eurail and InterRail Passes, is wholly owned by thirty participating railways and shipping companies. In addition, the Group has many benefit partners, including hotels, transport companies and museums, which offer their services either at a reduced rate or free of charge to rail pass holders.
