Travel day

A travel day starts from midnight and ends at midnight the next day. It lasts 24 hours. During that period, you can take as many trains as you want.

Our tip:
You can get a free travel day with the 7 PM rule when the four conditions below are met:

  • Your rail pass should be activated by a rail official.
  • You must travel on board a night train which departs after 7 pm, and this trip should be the first one you are taking during that day.
  • You must reach your destination no later than 4 am on the following day.
  • The arrival date must be within the validity of your rail pass.
When all conditions are met, you just have to write down the arrival date on your rail pass instead of the departure date. Thus you save a day of travel.

  • "I love Eurail !"    
    This would be my 14th or 15th Eurail pass over 20 odd years. Its my favourite mode of travel in Europe. In 30 days we travelled from Paris CDG to Brussels, then Brussels to Waterloo, then to Brugge, antwerp and Ghent in Belgium, back to Paris. After a two week river cruise we travelled across France from Bordeaux to Lutzern in Switzerland via Paris and back again to Paris CDG vis Strasbourg. we travelled on fast trains like the TGV and Thalys and wonderful local trains in Belgium. Its such a restful way of travelling and you see so much from the train. The seats are comfortable and the staff are always helpful. the worst part of the experience was getting across Paris from Gare Montparnasse to Gare du Nord for the connetion to Switzerland. Not eurail's fault but the Paris Metro is not suitcase carrying friendly. When I added up the costs of our trip we were well ahead. Almost forgot our Eurail pass gave us discounts on the paddle steamers on lake Lutzern. A magical experience never to be forgotten.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Europe 2013"    
    We travelled through Switzerland, Austria and Germany. (Zurich, Salzburg, Garmisch, Munich). All trains were on time - as usual - clean, comfortable and service from staff excellent. The only criticism is, being aged pensioners , we had difficulty in getting on and off the trains with our suitcases due to the narrow and steep steps.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Eurail is awesome in Europe"    
    I cannot fault travelling by rail in Europe, especially on the Eurail pass. For long haul journeys it is extremely good value for money. The first class option was excellent and I highly recommend you book your seats on long haul sectors as you may end up having to move many times. The booking fees at the stations were only around 4euro pp for each sector and well worth the fee. Train travel in Europe is modern, clean, quick, comfortable, hassle free and very efficient. I will be Eurailing in Europe again!!    Value for money  Convenience
  • "happy traveller"    
    first time user of this type of rail pass, and couldn`t have been more impressed.easy to use and understand, and plenty of help available if you need.lots of destinations and frequent train departures. our fist trip from zurich to salzburg was 5 hours of picture postcard stuff, unbeleivable scenery the whole way.once you know the trains scheduling, we just rocked up about 5 minutes before departure and hopped straight on, everytime. this sure beats hanging around in airport lounges for hours on end. even though we changed our travel plans and probably didn`t get the most out of our passes, we weren`t disappointed in any way.our next european trip we are planning will be a global pass over 2/3 months, it`s that easy and comfortable and afforedable. thank you ross    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Nordic, Scandanavia etc."    
    Some early problems reserving seats on the Oslo-Bergen-Oslo route promptly resolved by Rail Australia. The trains were a much better way of travelling than flying. No time wasted getting to airports and long waits to board planes and the trains always terminate in the central city area (brilliant!). The first class carriages were all really comfortable, often with wifi so time to catch up with correspondence. Friendly people on trips and interesting conversations plus great scenery helped the hours pass by quickly. Enjoyed the experience so mutch planning another (longer) rail trip in 2014. Only way to go!    Value for money  Convenience
  • "TwentyDestinations Made Easy"    
    During the European summer I had a 4 country select pass which allowed travel in Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Hungary. The trains were always on time and transported us effortlessly to some magical destinations. There was a postcard view around every bend in Switzerland, with more breathtaking scenery as we travelled across Austria and into Hungary. In Germany we took short trips to interesting destinations around Lake Constance which we may otherwise have missed. The trains were all comfortable with enough room for luggage and good information provided about upcoming stations. Staff very helpful on trains and in information offices. Travel by rail in Europe is definitely the way to go. It is safe, fun and offers a comprehensive range of destinations.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "europe in a week"    
    quick friendly ,scenic ,safe ,restful,and more views than you could accomplish than if you went by boat and plane    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Central Europe trip 2013"    
    Our trip included Switzerland, Italy, France, Germany and Austria and involved travel by both car and train. We had used European trains on previous trips and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, so had no hesitation in doing so again. Once in Europe, my husband and I found the train services to be totally reliable and the booking procedure in Australia was handled with professional advice and precision for our personal requirements. We have no problem whatever in recommending Eurail    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Eurail Select works"    
    We had no problems with our first class pass. We chose three countries (one of which was Bennelux, so we could use it in Belgium and Netherlands). We found it helpful to be able to book some seats, on trips which required a reservation, (like Thalys) through RailEurope before we left. This meant we knew where and when to turn up. We only had one issue the whole trip (3 weeks); getting stuck in the wrong end of the train (poor signage), so we travelled second class on that leg. But at least we were on the train! :) Highly recommend the eurail/RailEurope experience.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "A Wonderful Experience "    
    It was great having everything booked with seat allocations included. I would NOT travel by air when next in Europe. Overall it was a stress free time with marvellous scenery thrown in for good measure.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Eurail 3 country pass 2013"    
    All I can say is make sure you get your eurail pass stamps before you travel o your first train. We were really rushing to catch a train in Milan to get to the Cinque Terra in time to check in to our accommodation so had no time to get the pass stamped. We assumed that the ticket inspector could stamp it on the train...we were wrong. We were very lucky that on a train from Florence to Venice the ticket inspector could have charged us for the full ticket price as well as a fine. we got it stamped in Venice and took 2 seconds. Take the time to do it!    Value for money  Convenience
  • "European experience"    
    I purchased a 3 country pass. As it was early spring I did not book I individual seats for my journey and found seats as I went. I did want to book my seat from Copenhagen to Skern, as I knew ths was a busy service. I was told by the staff in Australia that it was not necessary. Again I requested making a booking, but they seemed unable to help me. So despite having a first class rail pass and bring very tired after 40 hours of travel, I had to stand for the 4 hour journey to Skern as the train was fully booked. The remainder of the journey went well.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "stockholm - oslo"

  • "Convenient!"    
    Very convenient way of travel but need to plan ahead. Best to reserve on popular routes or get there early to ensure you get a seat! Seats comfy in first class and generally pleasant quiet trip with nice scenery!    Value for money  Convenience
