DiscoverEU: large-scale travel initiative of the European Union
DiscoverEU is an initiative of the European Union giving young Europeans the opportunity to travel across Europe by train, with an Interrail Pass. The European Commission has selected Eurail as the provider of travel tickets for DiscoverEU through a call for tenders. The aim is to support 18-year-olders to become more independent, develop soft skills and embrace European values. Organised for the first time in 2018, young people have embraced the opportunity with enthusiasm ever since. Nearly 350,000 young people applied for the almost 70,000 travel passes available over four application rounds in 2018-2019. DiscoverEU was then included in the Eramsus+ programme and continued in October 2021 with another application round awarding Interrail Passes to 60,000 young Europeans to travel in 2022
“I won the Interrail Pass last year and went on to experience the best year of my whole life. The life of the traveller is the best way to live! One morning you wake in Porto and by the evening you are looking for accommodation in Valencia. It's exciting to live like that!” M. from Slovakia
“My journey was fantastic. All the things that happened to me and all the memories I made during my trip will stay with me for my whole life. I really loved it! I realised how much I love travelling by train, how many incredible places I can get to and, most importantly, that flexible travel is much more enjoyable than following fixed itineraries.” S. from Hungary
Exploring Europe without borders — City of Monheim am Rhein
The city of Monheim am Rhein in Germany has joined forces with Eurail to offer Interrail Passes for free to its young citizens (18 to 20 y.o.). This initiative draws inspiration from the values and goals of DiscoverEU, while being locally oriented.
‘Monheim am Rhein is a city open to the world and especially to Europe. We are very glad that we started to offer free interrail Passes to young Monheim citizens in 2019. Thanks to the excellent and trusty cooperation of Eurail we were able to establish a smooth process. The collaboration with Eurail is easy and always solution oriented. We are very much looking forward to see a lot of Monheim youngsters travel in Europe by train’. B. Rhiel, Monheim am Rhein City Council.
EU Sustainable Mobility campaigns
Eurail is proud to partner with Engaging Society for Sustainability (ES4S), the first Brussels based think-tank active to foster a more sustainable behavior at global level. The #EUSustainableMobility initiative is a 3-year project aimed at collecting perceptions and opinions on mobility from thousands of young citizens living across Europe.
In the effort to boost both awareness and behavior around the importance of new sustainable mobility models, each campaign entails different challenges and include a final event where policy makers, private and non-profit sectors exchange best practices and award young winners with Interrail Passes to travel sustainably around Europe.
Green Eramsus+ with Coimbra Group
Eurail and the international association of universities Coimbra Group have launched a pilot campaign to promote train travel for Erasmus+ academic mobility exchanges. With already positive results, the initiative aims at testing the interest of university students in train travel as a more sustainable way to move around Europe for their studies.
‘The relationship between Eurail and the Coimbra Group aims at encouraging Erasmus+ participants to travel by train and support the efforts of universities in their transition towards a greener Erasmus+. The cooperation has been both pleasant and efficient and we have all learned a lot throughout this collaboration!’
E. Gardan, Coimbra Group Director.
