|Ten reasons to explore Europe by train|
Why tie yourself down with restrictive airline or bus schedules? The incredible flexibility of travelling by InterRail means you can travel when and where you want.
2. Concerned about the environment
Go green, go cleaner. Travelling by train is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint - do your little bit to combat climate change.
3. Location. location, location
Train stations are in city centres, airports are not. Taxis from out of the way airports often cost more than plane tickets.
4. You actually see Europe
It is amazing how travelling through Europe by train is just like a real life geography lesson. Sit back, relax and watch the continent go by.
5. You actually meet Europeans
Not to mention young travellers from all over the world just like you, all eager to experience the true feel of Europe.
6. The only way to travel
Traffic jams, airport hassles, who needs them? With Interrail, travel the easy way from city centre to city centre, giving you more time to make the most out of your visit.
7. Take to the seas
Some Interrail passes include ferry travel as well as trains. Global Passes will get you onto Attica Ferries between Greece and Italy.
8. I'm late, I'm late!
Miss a no frills flight, and you are up the River Seine without a paddle. Miss a train and you can hop on the next one.
9. Don't struggle with baggage allowence
Trains allow you to bring as much luggage as you want to. Budget airlines have hefty fees for bags not much bigger than backpacks.
10. There is a rail pass for you
InterRail Global Pass or InterRail One Country Pass – you’ll find a pass that fits your needs and budget.
