Eurail pass conditions for ferries
For free passage on international ferry routes, your pass must be valid for the country of departure and arrival. For discounted passage, your pass must be valid for the country of departure or arrival.
Travel day rules for flexi passes
If you travel on a boat that departs after 7 p.m. (19:00) and arrives at its final stop after 4 a.m. (04:00), you may chose to use just one of your travel days. When traveling by night ferry (Superfast, Minoan or Blue Star Ferries) you can fill in either the day of departure or the day of arrival. Please note that you cannot start your travel before the first day of validity on your pass.
