A Eurail Pass is a precious item with a high value. Add Plus to your order to make your mobile Pass 100% refundable (paper Pass Protection* discontinued) for extra peace of mind.

Protect your mobile Pass with Plus
Have you ever hesitated to book a trip in the future because you weren't sure yet if you'd be able to travel? Sometimes, a little added peace of mind can go a long way towards making that choice an easy one. That's why we developed Plus.
What is Plus?
Plus is an upgrade for mobile Passes that you can select in the checkout.* For a small fee, you can make your Pass 100% refundable and exchangeable. That means anytime before you plan to travel, you can cancel at the last minute and get back the money you paid for your Pass.
How do I get Plus?
When ordering your Eurail mobile Pass, simply tick the Plus box in the checkout.*
How does Plus work?
After purchase, your mobile Pass can be used any time in the 11 months following your purchase, and the same is true for Plus. You can only use Plus before you begin travelling. If your travel plans change you can request an exchange for free. Simply order a new Pass that fits your new needs and contact our customer service to request the refund of your old Pass.
In case something doesn't work out and you decide not to travel after all, simply log in to your account and follow the instructions for cancellation to claim your 100% refund of the Pass price.

What is Pass Protection?
If you have Pass Protection, you're entitled to a refund for replacement train tickets or a new Eurail Pass up to a maximum amount. This maximum amount is the equivalent of the remaining value of your lost/stolen pass. It is not possible to re-issue a new Eurail Pass or replacement tickets. These need to be purchased by you and need to be kept as per the Pass Protection Booking Terms.
There is no Pass Protection for free Child Passes. However, if you're travelling with children and purchased the Protection for your Adult Pass, they will also be insured. This way, if you lose all Passes, you can get a refund for all replacement train tickets.
Please note that Pass Protection is for Eurail paper Passes only and does not apply to train reservations made through our Reservation Service.
