Free Passes for kids with Eurail
We believe experiencing Europe with your family can be truly amazing. This is why children aged 11 or younger on the date you choose to start your trip can get a free Pass with Eurail. The best way your child can learn about the world is by seeing it.
Passes for kids
No Pass for kids aged 3 or younger
Children under 4 on the date you choose to start your trip do not need a Eurail Pass. On crowded trains, parents may be requested to put the child on their lap, as they are not guaranteed their own seat.
If you would like a seat for your child you must reserve a seat in advance; however, a free Eurail Child Pass is required to make a seat reservation. You can get 2 free Eurail Child Passes (for children aged 0-11) per Eurail Adult Pass.
On night trains, it is necessary to reserve and pay for a separate couchette or sleeper if you would like your child to have their own bed.
Free Pass for kids aged 4 to 11
Children aged 4-11 on the date you choose to start your trip can get a free Child Pass. This Pass can be ordered together with an Adult Pass (applies to all Eurail Passes). When ordering your Eurail Adult Pass, add the number of Child Passes you need to your cart from the pass tables.
A maximum of two children can travel for free with one adult. The adult they travel with does not have to be a family member; this can be any adult over the age of 18 at the time of travel.
If more than two children are traveling with one adult, a separate Youth Pass needs to be purchased for the additional children.
Travelling together with kids
Our self-service Reservations booking tool assigns seats through an automated system that can't take seating preferences into account. To ensure that you and your little ones are assigned seats together, we recommend adding their free Eurail Child Passes to your order, adding them as travelers to your account, and booking your reservations well in advance. The sooner you book the reservations, the less crowded the trains are and there is a higher likelihood of being seated together for your train journey, making your experience of traveling with your young ones seamless and relaxed.
Please note: Booking in advance cannot guarantee seats being assigned together. If this is the case for your reservation, please contact the train carrier to arrange seating swaps or request assistance from the conductor on board on the train.

Comfort and convenience
My family loves Eurail. It makes our travels around Europe so comfortable and convenient! Instead of having to take planes from one country to another, riding the different European trains makes our trip an amazing experience.
