EurailPass updates for 2013

EurailPass is the most complete offer to travel by train in Europe. Among the passes that Eurail offer to travelers outside Europe is the Eurail Global Pass and the Eurail Select Pass.

The Eurail Global pass is the most complete offer of the Eurailpass. As of January 2013, the Eurail Global Pass covers 24 European countries, including the newcomer: Turkey. The other countries which can be visited by train using a Eurail Global pass are Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France, Hungary, Luxemburg, Portugal, Spain, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands,  Romania, Slovakia, Sweden, Croatia, Finland, Greece, Italy, Norway, Slovenia, Switzerland. As such, all the countries included in the Eurail Global pass make it an interesting deal to travel. Travelers can choose to travel every day for 15, 21 days, 1 month, 2 months, or 3 months. They can alternatively choose to travel a total of 10 or 15 days within 2 months. The Eurail Global pass is available on the Rail Europe website, which can also be consulted for more information.

The Eurail Select pass will experience a major change in 2013 as well. Indeed France will no longer be included in the list of countries that can be selected for holders of a Eurail Select pass. Travelers can still visit France at a bargain price though! First, the change will be effective as of January 2013. This means Eurail Select passes with France included will be sold up to the 31st of December 2012. Buying now is a great way to travel in 2013. Travelers are advised that the 2012 Eurail Select pass must be validated within 6 months from the date of purchase. There is also the France Rail Pass, for those who have missed out on buying the Eurail Select on the 31st of December 2012.

The Eurail Select pass will also include Turkey as a newcomer. One of the best destinations in Europe and Asia, Istanbul is a city that will charm everyone.

Full detail on the Eurail Select pass can be obtained from Rail Europe.
