UTRECHT, the Netherlands, Feb. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Eurail is rewarding early planners already getting their vacation planning in motion with free extra travel days. All Eurail Passes purchased between 1 February and 30 April 2016 inclusive, add between one and five extra travel days, allowing customers to see even more of Europe for less.
With the new permanent extension of the Eurail Pass pre-booking period from six to 11 months, customers can take advantage of this attractive offer now, but travel in Europe by rail at a later date that suits their schedule.
"The extended 11 month booking period allows customers to also benefit from early bird airfares to Europe, and the accommodation savings that often come with booking more in advance", says Silvia Görlach, Eurail Group's Sales and Marketing Manager. Partnered with other Eurail saving options like the children travel for free programme, the extra day promotion makes travelling in Europe with Eurail even more budget-friendly.
"We look to encourage our customers to discover all that Europe has to offer. Big name cities like Berlin and Madrid prove popular with our customers, but one of the benefits of the extra days offer is that it gives customers more time to add smaller, lesser known destinations to their itinerary and uncover some hidden gems in Europe away from the usual hotspots," adds Ms. Görlach.
Travellers who purchase a Eurail Global, Select, or One Country Pass with the extra days offer before 30 April 2016, can start their journey in Europe up to 11 months after the date of purchase. Under the offer, Eurail Global Passes include up to five extra travel days, depending of the length of the Pass' original validity. All Eurail Select and One Country Passes (excluding the Greek Islands One Country Pass) include one extra free travel day.
Eurail Global Passes can be used to travel in 28 European countries and give international guests a wealth of possibilities to tailor their own itinerary. The full Eurail Select and One Country Pass portfolio provide extensive options for customers who wish to discover the culture and diversity of just one to four Eurail participating countries.
Eurail Passes are available from a worldwide network of Authorised General Sales Agents. For more information please visit: http://www.eurailgroup.org/eurail-vendors.
