Travel agents gain access to mobile European rail passes

Travel agencies are being given access to sell Eurail mobile rail passes.

The move by the firm behind the Interrail pass has opened a new distribution platform for both online as well as for offline point of sales.

Interrail and Eurail passes provide unlimited rail travel in 33 European countries with a single ticket.

Passes can be used within 11 months after purchase, with full flexibility in itinerary and starting date of the trip.

Travellers manage their trip independently with a rail planner app.

Travel plans can be changed or postponed at a limited cost as part of a flexible refund and exchange policy.

Eurail business and growth manager Silvia Festa said: “Travellers ask for flexible travel products these days, that allow for last minute and hassle-free change of travel plans.

“OTAs, travel agencies and tour operators can address this need with our mobile rail passes.

“In addition, the interest in green travel and the launch of various new night trains in Europe have raised the interest in train travel within Europe among a broader audience.

“Travel companies can benefit from this trend by selling our Eurail and Interrail passes.

“Our rail passes also create an interesting opportunity to up-sell with other ancillary products in order to deliver an appealing package to customers”
