Find out which pass you can use
Eurail passes can only be used by non-European residents, who have lived in a non-European country for at least 6 months (counted on the first day of travel with the pass). Complete list of nationalities eligible for a Eurail pass.
European residents cannot travel with a Eurail pass but can instead use an InterRail pass, available from www.interrail.eu.
Proof of residency
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
- bank statement
- Telephone bill
- government certificate
Driving licenses are not accepted.
Eurail and InterRail travelers
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.
