Un­lim­ited travel through Euro­pean coun­tries

Rail (UK) - - Opinion -

In­ter­rail Global is a pass that gives un­lim­ited travel through­out 30 Euro­pean coun­tries in var­i­ous time pe­ri­ods, from any-5-days-in-15 up to every day for a month.

Avail­able only to res­i­dents of a Euro­pean coun­try, prices are avail­able for ages 12-27, 28-59, 60 or over, plus a fam­ily ver­sion.

They are First or Stan­dard Class and vary from £184 for the any-5-in-15 child ver­sion in Stan­dard, up to £752 for a whole month’s travel in First Class for some­body aged 28-59. For more de­tails see www.in­ter­rail.eu/in­ter­rail­passes/global-pass.

This pass of­fers a jour­ney in your home coun­try from any sta­tion to/from an air­port or port, but only on the first and last days of your pass. You can use sev­eral trains but must reach the port/air­port in one day, and these two days count as one of the num­ber you have pur­chased.

The ques­tion I have been asked is whether or not there are any time re­stric­tions on the Bri­tish legs, or would it be counted as an Al­lLine Rover by some guards and be sub­ject to Mon-Fri time re­stric­tions.

There is noth­ing on their web­site to say, and this seems the prob­lem. How­ever, I have asked round the in­dus­try and was even­tu­ally told that within Bri­tain In­ter­rail Global is un­re­stricted.
