By Thursday, 23 December 2021 11:51

“Right now travellers are asking for flexible travel products that make it possible to change plans easily even, at the last minute,” underlines Silvia Festa, Eurail Business and Development Manager. The new Eurail portal allows for quick and easy implementation, both for online sales and offline points of sale, allowing tour operators and travel agencies to respond to the growing demand for electronic rail passes.

Attractive packages for rail travellers

“A desire to travel in an eco-sustainable way and the launch of several new night trains in Europe have sparked an interest in train travel to an ever-growing audience. Traders can take advantage of this trend by selling our Eurail and Interrail Passes, which also lend themselves to bundling with other products to provide more attractive packages for rail travellers.”

Flexible exchange and refund policies

Eurail introduced the Eurail and Interrail Passes in digital format in 2020 with the aim of offering greater travel flexibility. The passes allow for travel to 33 European countries on a single ticket using an unlimited number of trains. They can be used up to 11 months after the date of purchase, and it is possible to choose the route and departure date with maximum flexibility. Pass holders can manage their journey independently via the Rail Planner app, and another advantage of the pass is the flexible refund and exchange policy that allows travellers to change or postpone their trip at a low cost.

The importance of distribution partners 

A significant portion of annual Eurail and Interrail Pass sales comes from Eurail's distribution partners. After a rapid migration of existing distributors, Trip.com and rail travel start-up All Aboard were the first new distributors to join the programme earlier this year.
