How to make use of Eurail Pass Benefits

Everything you need to know about how they work


First of all, you need to have a Eurail Pass. Got yours? Nice! Then you can take advantage of Eurail Pass Benefits during the period that your Eurail Pass is valid. Your validity period runs from the "First day" until the "Last day" written on your Eurail Pass at the time it's activated.

If you have a Flexi Eurail Pass

(with for example, 7 days of travel within a period of 1 month)

  • You may only use free benefits on dates that you have added in the Travel Calendar on your Eurail Pass. If the benefit is a free overnight ferry, you can enter the date of departure or arrival in your Travel Calendar - either option will do!

  • For every other benefit, you don't need to specify a date in your Travel Calendar.

If you have a Continuous Eurail Pass

(with for example, travel on every day within a period of 15 days)

  • You can take advantage of all our benefits on any date that your Eurail Pass is valid.

To arrange using a benefit, you can contact the individual company in advance or show your Eurail Pass when you book. It's usually possible to do this on the day itself. Some benefits (ferry journeys in particular) need booking in advance.

We're always looking to add great benefits. Sometimes others are discontinued. While this rarely happens, if you've got your heart set on a specific benefit, we recommend first checking that it's still offered. Do so by contacting the company offering the benefit, or by talking to our support team.

"Your site was much easier than Rail Europe" 

Your site was much easier than Rail Europe to deal with. Also deals slightly better.  Would be interested in one country Xdays spread over 2 months not just 1.
