Since 1972, the Interrail Pass has been the most flexible way for European travellers to connect with their friends, families and discover the continent on multi-destination trips that leave a lasting impression. The pass was created as a one-time offer, encouraging European youths to explore their surroundings and bond over joint values and experiences. Since then, over 10 million European travellers have followed their curiosity, broadened their horizons and connected to their shared European heritage and values across 250,000 km of tracks in 33 countries.

With the celebration of Interrail’s 50th anniversary, they are offering 50% off the 1, 2 and 3 month Continuous Passes in a 5 day flash sale ending 10 May. The passes purchased during the sale can be used any time in the next 11 months, without having to be activated any time before the trip. So there is no need to plan the entire journey now, interested people can just get the reduced pass now and figure everything out later.
With the discount, the new prices for the passes are: €335 for 1 month, €366 for 2 months and €451 for 3 months. Furthermore, young travellers, under 27 years old, receive an additional 25% discount, while senior travellers, over 60 years old, have an additional 10% discount. Children under 12 years old travel for free.
The Continuous Pass ensures unlimited free travel with national railways in 33 European countries. Nevertheless, in certain places, additional fees may apply. For example, for the Eurostar from London to France, Belgium or the Netherlands, or from €10 to €20 for faster trains in France and southern Europe. However, international rail expert Nicky Gardner advises that “As Interrail turns 50, now is perhaps the time to rediscover the slow trains which, being free of supplements and restrictions, are perfectly suited to Interrail”.
