How does your Eurail.com journey have a positive impact?
Eurail helps to reduce the environmental impact of your travels through Europe.
- Environmentally-friendly trains
Trains emit less than 11 pounds of CO2 per 62 passenger miles compared to planes (50 pounds) and cars (about 40 pounds). This way, Eurail travelers can reduce their individual carbon footprints.
A great way to compare the energy consumption for your trip, ecopassenger.org lets you check emissions and environmental impact per transport type.
- We seek sustainable solutions
We aim for sustainability in our physical products too: Eurail Passes and travel packs are made of recycled materials.
- We believe in green travel
We're owned by European railway and ferry companies. Through their commitment to renewable energy sources and the reduction of CO2 emissions, we're able to support Green Travel and a healthier planet.
The people who make your trip happen (the guys at Eurail.com) care about our environment too.
- We travel green
20% of our employees commute by train, 67% cycle or work from home, and only 3% drive to work.
- Everything we do is digital
As an e-commerce company we avoid waste of print paper and recycle too. We have a clean desk policy - no rubbish!
- We educate and develop
We invest heavily in training, to send our employees on the right track, and offer flexible working hours.
At Eurail.com we're always up for supporting the wider community as well as European businesses with socially responsible values.
Advantages of train travel
Not only are trains one of the most environmentally-friendly ways of traveling across Europe, they are super practical too. For example, trains take you to the hearts of cities so you don't need to catch any additional buses or taxis.
What is Eurail?
A Eurail Pass gives you unrivaled access to the train and ferry networks in 33 European countries. It's the freedom to go on an adventure, traveling from city to city using a form of transport that pollutes way less than flying.
