One Country Pass:
There are several different ways to buy an Interrail Pass.
If you want to travel using a Mobile Pass, you need a smartphone, the Rail Planner app and an internet connection (at least once every three days). Select the e-pass option at the checkout. You will receive an e-mail containing confirmation of your order and a pass number that you can use to download your pass to the app.
You can buy an Interrail Pass as early as 11 months before your journey begins.
One Country Pass
You cannot use the One Country Pass to travel in the country where you have your place of residence.
The Global Pass gives you 2 journeys for the country where you are living. One of these journeys is for departing from your country of residence and the other is for your return to your country of residence.
You need reservations to travel on many Long Distance trains in Europe. You cannot travel on these trains without a reservation.
You can make reservations for almost all European trains up to 2 months before the date of travel (3 months for certain services) via www.interrail.eu.
The Interrail Pass does not include reservation fees.
You need to supply the following information when buying a pass:
- First name and surname
- Date of birth
- Country of residence
- The number of your valid ID document
- The date of your departure (= start of validity period of pass)
You will have to show the ID document that you entered on the Interrail Pass when your ticket is inspected on the train.
Your Interrail Pass gives you the possibility to have discounts, such as for hotels and museums. An overview of all Interrail business partners is available in the discounts section of interrail web site or on the Rail Planner app.
