Eurail 2016 developments

eurail developmentsAustralians travelling to Europe next year can look forward to added benefits when booking with Eurail.

During a recent visit to Australia, Eurail Group sales and marketing manager, Silvia Görlach hinted at some big improvements to be introduced from 1 January 2016.

While she remained tight-lipped as to exactly what these developments will be, it’s understood there is going to be a wider variety of options for Aussie travellers that will “fill in the gaps”.

Australians contribute to more than 10% of the 300,000 passengers that travel with Eurail each year, making it the third largest market behind North America and Asia.

“The Pacific is a very important market for us and we want to encourage more Aussies to use Eurail, particularly because they spend a lot more time travelling around Europe,” said Görlach.

The multi-country Global and Select Passes are the most popular among Australians.
