Do I need a Eurail or an Interrail Pass?
A Eurail Pass can only be used by non-European citizens or non-European residents. European citizens can use an Interrail Pass instead, available from Interrail.eu for the same price as a Eurail Pass.
If you are not a European citizen, but you are a permanent resident of Europe, you can also choose to use an Interrail Pass. We ask for your country of residence when you order, so you will need to bring an official European residency card or document along with you that matches the country of residence written on your Interrail Pass. Check our booking conditions (Article 5) to see if your country of residence is eligible for an Interrail Pass.
If you have more than one passport or permanent residency (dual citizenship), the Pass you use will be based on where you live:
1. If you have a European passport and a non-European passport, use the passport/ID of the country you live in. If you live outside of Europe, order a Eurail Pass. If you live in Europe, order an Interrail Pass from Interrail.eu.
2. If you have a European passport and a non-European passport but you live in a different European country, you can travel with either passport/ID, but your country of residence is the country you live in. Order an Interrail Pass and bring an official residency card or document with you along with your passport/ID.
3. If you have 2 European passports, you always use an Interrail Pass from Interrail.eu. Use the passport/ID of the country you live in to order your Pass.
Please note that a driver's license is not a valid travel document.
