Do I need a Eurail or an InterRail pass?
To use a Eurail pass you must be a non-European resident. You also must have lived outside of Europe for at least 6 months before the first day of travel with the pass.
European residents cannot travel with a Eurail pass but can instead use an InterRail pass, available from www.interrail.eu.
Train staff have the right to check your residency, so make sure you always have one of the following documents available that proves that you live in your country of residence for at least 6 months:
work or student visa
residence card / permit
Driving licenses are not accepted.
Eurail and InterRail pass holders can travel together, but keep in mind that the InterRail Global Pass is valid in more countries than the Eurail Global Pass.
You may use a Eurail pass if you have been living in one of the countries listed below for longer than 6 months (counted on the first day you start using a pass).
