Pass Information

Pass Usage - General Conditions

Passes may only be used by the person(s) to whom it has been issued, and cannot be transferred. Misuse of any Eurail Pass, including photocopying, counterfeiting or attempting to extend its period of validity, is considered as fraud. This authorises any ticket inspector to demand a penalty fine and/or full payment for the journey, and may result in confiscation of the Pass.

Eurail Passes cannot be replaced if lost or stolen, and appropriate insurance or 'Pass Protection' is strongly recommended.

Eurail Passes must be activated within eleven months of issue (or, in the case of certain promotional Passes, by the date otherwise specified).

Eurail Passes must be activated at a station of one of the participating railway companies, before you can commence your first train journey. When the traveller is arriving by international train into a country covered by their chosen Eurail Pass (i.e. from a country not covered by their Pass), then an inspector on board the train may also activate their Eurail Pass. Travellers cannot activate their own Passes.

Journeys may not start before 00.00 hours on the first day of validity of the Pass, and may not end after 24.00 hours on the last day of validity.

Certain trains may travel through a country not covered by your chosen Pass, in which case an additional ticket must be purchased for that part of the journey.

Holders of '2nd Class' Eurail Passes may choose to travel in 1st Class, on payment of the difference in price between the 1st and 2nd Class full fares for the journey. No refund is payable if you choose to travel in a lower class.

Pass Usage - Additional Conditions for 'Flexi' Passes

Passengers travelling on a 'Flexi' pass (e.g. xx days of travel within xx days) may choose their own 'travel days' within the overall validity of the pass. The passenger must enter the date of each 'travel day' on the pass, in blue or black ink, before boarding the first train/ship of the day. Failure to do so may require the payment of a penalty fine to any ticket inspector.

A chosen 'travel day' runs from midnight to midnight, however if the journey in question starts with an overnight train departing after 19.00 and arriving after 04.00 the following day, then only the following day needs to be used as a 'travel day' on your 'Flexi' Pass. If, however, this overnight service requires a change of train prior to midnight, then two 'travel days' must be used.

When travelling on a 'Flexi' pass on board an overnight ferry, you may enter either the day of departure or the date of arrival - you do not need to use two travel days.

Pass Usage - Additional Conditions for 'Saver' Passes
Persons travelling on a 'Saver' Pass do not have to make all trips together as a party, however you do always have to carry both the 'Saver' Pass & Control Voucher with you whenever you are travelling. Therefore, on a day when some of the persons listed on the 'Saver' Pass choose to make a journey, the other members of your party cannot catch make a different journey at the same time.

Supplements / Extra Charges
Eurail passholders are exempt from paying a supplement on high-speed or premium services such as the ICE, TGV, IC and EC. On some of these services, however, a compulsory seat reservation must be paid for.

Eurail passholders must also pay other charges and supplements, such as:
(a) seat reservations, including those routinely offered and/or compulsory in countries such as Spain, France, Italy and elsewhere; as well as those which are simply recommended such as in the case of peak departures or high season travel;
(b) sleeping accommodation, such as beds, cabins and couchettes on board trains, and the use of cabins, berths and reclining seats on board ferries;
(c) services including meals, luggage check-in, newspapers and telephone calls, which are sometimes included in the supplement on some trains or ferries;
(d) seasonal supplements on ferry routes operated by Attica Group & Minoan Lines; plus port taxes & the use of certain boats.

Every booking accepted is subject to a fraud check. Potentially fraudulent bookings will be manually reviewed, and the customers will be contacted, if needed. This will happen within 48 hours after booking, during business days. STA Travel is not responsible nor liable for any loss (consequential or otherwise); damage, delay, inconvenience or irregularity caused by, or arising from, or in connection with this process.

Travel insurance is recommended.

Travelers are responsible for ensuring that they have all necessary travel documents and visas.

Prices are subject to change without prior notice.
