Eurail Adds Four New Countries

17 March 2015

The best way to bounce around Europe is set to expand its repertoire, with travel provider Eurail announcing the addition of four new countries to its rail pass: Poland, Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The inclusion of these for countries will bring Eurail's network coverage to 28 countries across Europe and the United Kingdom.

Other cost-saving initiatives have been announced by the transit company, including a 'Family Pass' which will allow up to two children aged 4 to 11 to ride for free with a family member or guardian travelling on an Adult Eurail Pass.

A 'Flexi Pass' has also been revealed, awarding travellers the freedom to visit non-bordering countries at their leisure over any five days in a 10-day period.

Further announcements include a first class option for Eurail Youth Pass holders, perfect for younger nomads looking for that extra touch of comfort, and an Attica Pass, which makes Greek Island-hopping easier than ever.

The Attica Pass includes six ferry crossings – two international trips between Italy and Greece, and four domestic trips within the Islands – which opens up 26 of the Greek Islands to travellers looking for a Mediterranean escape.
