UTRECHT, The Netherlands, October 30, 2013 / PRNewswire –
Travel around Europe by rail for less
Travelers can take advantage of a special 20% discount off the regular price of Eurail Global and Eurail Select Passes booked from November 1 through December 31, 2013. The Off Peak promotional passes can be used for European rail travel until March 31, 2014 and are open to all travel categories: Adult, Child and Youth, including Saver Passes intended for groups of two to five people with a further 15% reduction, and for both first and second class travel.
“Due to the success of last year’s Off Peak promotion, we are confident that this special offer will attract more travelers to Europe during the upcoming winter season. Not only can tourists benefit from a discounted Eurail Select or Eurail Global Pass, they’ll notice fewer crowds when visiting popular tourist attractions,” explains Silvia Goerlach, Eurail Group’s newly appointed Sales and Marketing Manager.
At this time of year, pass holders choose to visit European Christmas Markets, experience the Northern Lights in Scandinavia or head towards the Mediterranean where the temperature is warmer. Traveling from one city centre to another, tourists can absorb the European landscapes and enjoy the comfort and stress free environment of travelling by rail.
Eurail Global Passes are valid for travel all over Europe in 24 countries and offers the independent traveler the flexibility to create their own itinerary whilst hopping on and off trains across Europe.

Nearly 96,000 passengers have already travelled with the Eurail Global Pass this year, representing an increase of almost 30% over 2012 figures.
For shorter vacations, Eurail offers passes for trips to only a few countries too. The Select Pass is available for combinations of three to five countries and is also included in the 20% Off Promotion.
