Eurail Group G.I.E. has announced that it is offering youths two extra days of 2nd class rail travel on all 15 day Eurail Global Passes purchased between April 1st and May 31st, 2011.
For over 50 years, the Eurail Global Pass has allowed rail travelers to tailor-make their own European itinerary. With 22 countries currently participating in the Eurail Global Pass, it is especially popular among youths. It gives the traveler almost endless opportunities to explore Europe by rail. Not only does the Eurail Global Pass open the doors via rail to favorite European destinations such as France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Switzerland and Spain, it also gives access to the lesser discovered corners of Central and Eastern Europe, like Bulgaria, Croatia, Romania and Slovenia. Regardless of which part of Europe travelers want to explore, the Eurail Global Pass is the perfect travel companion.
In 2010, more than 427,000 overseas travelers experienced the ease of getting around Europe with Eurail Passes. Overall, 27% of Eurail passengers in 2010 traveled with a Eurail Youth Pass, including a large percentage from North America and South Korea.
Marketing Director Ana Dias e Seixas is enthusiastic about the promotion. “Eurail wants to inspire more youths to discover Europe by rail for the ultimate travel experience. Traveling with a Eurail Pass gives the pass holder a sense of freedom which can’t be matched by any other product on the market.” The offer is valid on 2nd class Global Youth Passes for 15 days of continuous travel. Youth Passes are valid for travelers who are under age 26 on their first day of travel.
