What is the Flex (DiscoverEU Interrail) Travel Pass?
With a Flexible DiscoverEU Travel Pass, you will receive the Interrail Global Pass to your doorstep. This means, all conditions of an Interrail Global Pass will apply. You will be able to travel over a period of 30 days, and travel physically on 7 travel days (meaning you can spend 7 days on trains).
The Interrail Global Pass is the travel pass that lets you ride on trains in 33 different European countries. You can travel unlimited at your own pace, and you can travel on trains operated by the national railway companies.
With the Interrail Travel Pass, the dates on which you travel remain flexible. However, do note that the Travel Pass will have a “Start Date”. From this Start Date on, your Travel Pass will be valid for one month. You can start your trip on another day which would be different from the Start Date, but keep in mind that you might lose some days of the validity of your pass. It’s not possible to change the start date of your pass.
You can use your Interrail ticket as a normal ticket, so you simply board the train. Many High-Speed trains (like the TGV or AVE trains) and Overnight Sleeper trains can be used, but you will have to pay additional ‘pass holder supplements’ for seat / sleeper berth reservations on them. Find out more about how to find out whether to you should make a reservation.
National/Local Travel Remark: The DiscoverEU Contest, like the Interrail Pass, is designed to offer you the best of rail travel abroad, therefore you cannot use the Interrail Pass to travel within your own country. An Interrail Global Pass is valid for travel in your country of residence on your first and last travel day. This means you can start and end your Interrail adventure at a railway station that’s local to you.
