What is a flexi pass?
There are 2 types of Eurail passes available depending on how much of your trip you want to spend on trains. The flexi pass lets you travel by train on a specific number of days that you choose to travel on during the validity of the pass. The continuous pass lets you travel on as many trains as you want during the whole period that your pass is valid. A flexi pass is cheaper than a continuous pass.
With a flexi pass you have a fixed number of travel days and the decision of when to use them is all yours.
All Eurail passes are available as a flexi pass. The number of travel days and the period of validity varies between each pass and country, so please view the different passes to see all the options available.
If you have a Global Pass - 10 days within 2 months and your pass is valid from June 1 to July 31, you can choose to travel by train on any 10 days during this period. Travel days do not have to be consecutive and you decide during your trip when you use them.
When traveling with a flexi pass it's important that you write the date of each travel day in the travel calendar on your pass, before boarding the first train (or free ferry or free bus).
When traveling on a direct night train that departs after 7 p.m. (19:00) and arrives at its final stop after 4 a.m. (04:00), you only need to enter the arrival date in the travel calendar, even if you leave the train before 4 a.m.. This is known as the 7 p.m. rule.
