What is Interrailing?


InterRail Countries

Austria, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, Turkey, the United Kingdom.

The traditional InterRail Pass, the InterRail Global Pass, allows unlimited rail travel in and between all participating countries for a certain period of time. Main exceptions are that the country of residence is excluded, and that high-speed trains and night trains often require a paid booking.

So, basically, you get a pass for most of the trains in Europe. You get pretty good deal, too. We got ours from www.interrail.eu and paid around £380GBP for a month’s pass, including loss cover. We also got a few free gifts with our passes, like a big rail map of Europe, an InterRail wristband and a lovely pass wallet to keep everything safe.

What can you do on an InterRail trip?

Well, you can do whatever you want! To find out what we did in Summer 2014 read our posts.

    Why do you not seek to get the LOCAL amateur ootearprs more involved? From the discussions at our meetings it seems almost like you actively try to DISCOURGAE locals from participating and helping. It seems like their knowledge of radio operations and the area would be a huge asset.I can certainly understand wanting to get the best possible people in to be part of this but if what I was told were the requirements are accurate it seems a bit restrictive. (approx $800 for training and must be EXTRA class and ACTIVE in scouting)
