Eurail Group G.I.E. has announced that it is offering youths two extra days of 2nd class rail travel on all 15 day Eurail Global Passes purchased between April 1st and May 31st, 2011.

For over 50 years, the Eurail Global Pass has allowed rail travellers to tailor-make their own European itinerary. With 22 countries currently participating in the Eurail Global Pass, it is especially popular among youths. It gives the traveller almost endless opportunities to explore Europe by rail. Not only does the Eurail Global Pass open the doors via rail to favourite European destinations such as France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Switzerland and Spain, it also gives access to the lesser discovered corners of Central and Eastern Europe, like Bulgaria, Croatia, Romania and Slovenia. Regardless of which part of Europe travellers want to explore, the Eurail Global Pass is the perfect travel companion.

In 2010, more than 427,000 overseas travellers experienced the ease of getting around Europe with Eurail Passes. Overall, 27% of Eurail passengers in 2010 travelled with a Eurail Youth Pass, including a large percentage from North America and South Korea. Travelling by rail is relaxing, comfortable and convenient, enabling passengers to enjoy the diverse landscapes, cultures and European sights. Europe’s rail system is modern and reliable, and cross-border rail connections makes travelling across the continent a breeze.

The offer is valid on 2nd class Global Youth Passes for 15 days of continuous travel. Youth Passes are valid for travellers who are under age 26 on their first day of travel.
