Travelling in France with a Eurail Select Pass will again be possible as of April 1.
After a year of reduced participation in the Eurail Pass scheme, SNCF, the French rail operator has officially announced its decision to rejoin Eurail’s Select Pass.
The Eurail Pass range enables rail travel across Europe, promising a unique travel experience by granting easy and flexible connections between all major and minor cities in Europe. The most popular pass is the Eurail Global Pass, covering 24 European countries. Customers who want to discover only part of Europe are offered a multitude of pass varieties that can be tailored to literally every travel need.
This year, the Eurail Select Pass product range has been revamped. From April 1, the pass will be re-launched, exclusively offering a Four Country option. Customers can tailor-make their own pass by selecting four out of 26 participating countries in which to travel. The selected countries need to be connected to each other.
The former Three and Five Country Select Passes will still be available for purchase until March 31, without France. Starting from April 1, only Four Country Select Passes are sold, offering the possibility to have France included as a destination.
Also until the end of March, travellers who reside outside of Europe can benefit from the current Early Bird promotion for the Global Pass which offers free travel days.
