Here’s what’s new with Eurail in 2019

Happy new year! Wherever you were, we hope you got to see the new year in in style. We kicked it off with a couple big changes to the Eurail Pass – and if you haven’t heard the news yet, check out our video on the top 3 changes and read about all the big changes in more detail below. We think you’re going to like them…


Lower prices
We’re kicking off 2019 by lowering the price of all Eurail Global Passes for good. It’s that simple!

3 new countries
Great Britain, Macedonia and Lithuania have joined the Eurail family. That means you can use your Eurail Global Pass to speed through the Scottish highlands, live it up in Vilnius and explore the best of Skopje. Or you can dig even deeper with One Country Passes for Lithuania and Macedonia.

New international routes
We’re also welcoming two new carriers in central Europe. Eurail Global Pass holders can now travel with Leo Express and RegioJet in the Czech Republic into Slovakia and Austria, and Poland too (thanks to RegioJet’s integrated bus connection). You can also use your Czech Republic Pass with both carriers on routes within the Czech Republic.

Discounts for over-60s
Eurailing is for everyone, and over-60s can now enjoy a 10% discount on top of the new lower Adult Pass prices. Along with our existing youth and family discounts, now everyone can explore Europe by train for less.

New Greek Islands
Our Greek Islands Pass now lets you choose from 53 islands to explore by ferry instead of 28, meaning you can take the path less traveled and explore more of the treasures that Greece has to offer.

More Pass options
We’ve added new Eurail Pass validities including 3 days in one month for the weekend-trippers among you and 3 months continuous travel for the more adventurous rail voyagers. It’s now easier than ever to find a Pass that suits your travel needs.

Simpler rules for night trains
There’s a lot to love about night trains – and now you’ll only need to use a single travel day when traveling on one with your Eurail Pass. Even though most night trains leave on one calendar day and arrive on the next, only the day of departure will count as a travel day, so you have more travel days to use on your adventure across Europe.

You can find out more about the changes on our website. Here’s to another year of rail adventures!
