Why we still offer paper rail passes

It's strange, we admit. But there is an explanation.

It’s a commonly asked question: why does Eurail still offer paper train passes when modern technology offers E-ticketing directly from your cell phone, laptop, or tablet?

 

Simply put: because it’s the only way to get you anywhere you want to go. All 28 countries that the Eurail Pass gives you access to have different systems for train ticketing. A paper pass can be easily used in all countries and across multiple train companies.
