Every Eurail Global Pass is valid in all 24 shaded countries.
Best Value: The 24-country Eurail Global Pass allows you to travel freely through most of Western Europe, from Portugal to Finland to Turkey. Unlike the Select Eurail Pass, the Eurail Global Pass offers a consecutive-day version (now called "Continuous") — particularly convenient for the whirlwind traveler who's riding the rails almost every day. Eurail Global is also the only pass with a three-month option, making it especially popular with student backpackers. Saver prices include a 15% discount for two to five travelers who order and travel together. Most families choose to keep youths together with adults on a first-class Saverpass, forgoing a second-class youth discount. Learn more about how European rail passes work.
Reservations: Seat and sleeper reservations cost extra and are required on many types of train, as indicated in train schedules. For example, fast trains within or to/from France limit places for rail pass holders and can sell out weeks ahead.
Coverage: Travel in Britain, across the English Channel by Eurostar, and in parts of Eastern Europe is not covered by Eurail passes but those areas have their own regional rail passes. Although nearly all trains (fast, medium, slow, international, day, night, etc.) are covered by rail passes, our regional pages list some private trains that are not covered.
Paris-Italy Route News: Paris-Italy night trains do not accept rail passes. The "reservation fee" for Paris-Lyon-Torino-Milan direct TGV day trains is $80 in 2nd class or $109 in 1st when using a Eurail pass, limited places available, and is not sold online. (You can buy the whole ticket for that price without using a railpass if you book three months ahead.) Daytime connections via Switzerland (e.g., transfering in Basel, Geneve, or Zürich) are the more economical choice for Eurail Global pass travelers. See more European Rail News.
Greece & Turkey Service: Greece does not currently have train connections to any neighboring country and train service into Turkey (from Bulgaria) is sparse. Bus is more convenient for many routes within Greece and Turkey. Flying is the best way to reach Athens, Thessaloniki, or Istanbul from any major city in Europe.
Youth BritRail Bonus: Youths under age 26 who have any Eurail-brand pass (Global, Select, Regional, Ireland, etc.) can save about 37% versus regular youth prices on many BritRail passes. See the Eurail Passholder Youth Discount section on our BritRail page.
