With these changes, travelers taking advantage of Eurail now have the opportunity to experience over 40,000 destinations across Europe more efficiently and economically than ever before. Most notably, Eurail will now provide access to Great Britain for the first time, as well as Macedonia and Lithuania, expanding its overall country count from 28 to 31. And with the addition of five new train carriers to Eurail’s portfolio, travelers now have even more route options within Europe to be excited about.

True to the Eurail ethos that was established at its launch in 1959, ease of travel and affordability are central components of the product changes.  For 2019, Eurail is retiring its Multi-Country Passes (2-4 countries) in favor of promoting Global and One Country Passes. Both will actually see price reductions, giving travelers up to 37 percent off various classes of travel including Senior (over 60 years), Youth (up to 27 years) and a new 2nd Class option. The move creates a greater understanding of product choice: the ability to fluidly move about 31 European countries at leisure or stay within one country’s borders, all with just one Pass.

“We anticipate the streamlining of our Pass offerings to be a welcome change by both consumers and travel agents alike,” said Clarissa Mattos, Market Manager Americas and Pacific at Eurail. “The increased clarity and transparency of product options makes planning a European trip easier and more affordable than ever with Eurail.”
