There’s few better ways to see a country than by rail, but how about seeing a whole continent? With the Senior Discount Pass from Interrail you can do just that.

Many would argue that there is no finer way to travel than by train. If you agree and are over 60, then a senior discount pass from Interrail could be just the ticket!

Holding a senior discount pass entitles you to 10 per cent off of all your Global Interrail passes, making it the ideal companion if you are planning to explore Europe in 2016.


The Interrail Global Pass offers all travellers an adventure of a lifetime, and with your senior discount pass you’ll be able to enjoy this multi-country ticket at a discounted rate. Coverage of the Global Pass is extensive, with 30 European countries currently covered.

You can even choose the way that you travel, too, by selecting either consecutive or flexible travel when you buy your pass. As the name suggests, consecutive allows you to travel every day for a designated number of days, while the flexible option gives you the opportunity to travel whenever you like within your chosen timeframe.

The 30 countries covered by the Global Pass are: Austria, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and last, but by no means least, Turkey.

Pass Benefits

Other than the healthy 10 per cent discount, there are a number of other benefits to holding a Senior Discount and Global Pass. These include:


Holding a Global Pass allows you to change your itinerary at the drop of a hat. You can either decide to stay in one place longer than you previously anticipated or leave town on the next train if you so wish. The choice is yours.


Buying a Global Pass in advance allows you to board a train to your next destination without the hassle and aggravation of having to queue up to pay for a ticket each time. This can be especially handy in countries where the language barrier may prove to be an issue.

Peace of mind

Never worry about missing your train, as holding the Global Pass allows you to travel on any train that is convenient to you – without incurring any extra charges.


Another benefit of the Global Pass is that it frees you from the restrictiveness of following a set timetable, allowing you to stay in one place or cross the whole of Europe.

If you want to see Europe in all its glory there really is no better way than by rail, and with the Global and Senior Discount Passes you’ll also be saving plenty too, especially on those longer journeys throughout peak travel times.

So, if the thought of meandering across the whole of Europe is something that appeals to you, then you really should check out the Senior Discount Pass from Interrail.
