Do I need a Eurail or an InterRail pass?
A Eurail pass can only be used by non-European residents, living outside of Europe for at least 6 months. European residents can use an InterRail pass instead, available from InterRail.eu. Check below to find out which pass is is the right pass for you.
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).
