What is a travel day?
A travel day is a 24-hour period in which you can travel on trains with your Eurail Pass. It lasts from 12:00 AM (midnight) to 11:59 PM on the same calendar day. On each travel day, you have access to the train networks where your Eurail Pass is valid.
On average, it won't take you more than 1 travel day to go from one European city to the next. For instance, you can travel from Berlin to Amsterdam in 1 day, and travel from Amsterdam to Paris on the next.
For mobile Passes a travel day lasts from 00:00 (midnight) to 23:59 Central European Time (CET). Please note that some European countries do not observe CET. Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Bulgaria and Greece are all one hour ahead (CET+1). This means there can be a difference in the start and end time of a travel day when compared to your local time while travelling.
With a Continuous Pass, like the 1 Month Continuous Pass, every day in the validity period is a travel day, so you can travel by train every day, if you like! With a Flexi Pass, like the 5 days in 1 Month Pass, you pick and choose on the go which days you want to travel up to the number specified.
When traveling on a night train that leaves on one day and arrives the next, without changing trains after midnight, you only have to spend 1 travel day: the day of departure. If you do change trains after midnight, you have to spend 2 travel days. Note: you cannot use your Eurail Pass to take a night train on your last travel day as the validity period will expire at 23.59.
