Rail Europe's Passes Headed for Changes

November 10, 1996

Europasses and Eurailpasses, offered by Rail Europe, undergo several changes on Jan. 1. Some travelers may save by buying 1997 passes now; they are good for six months from date of purchase. Among the major changes:

The five-day Europass will cover France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Switzerland; currently, travelers have to buy 11 days of travel to get all five countries. The least expensive first-class Europass increases by $16, to $253 per person, for two traveling together; it remains at $316 for single travelers. The fare to add on countries such as Greece and Portugal will be $48 per person for two traveling together; now some fares are higher and some lower than $48, depending on the country.

Prices for most versions of the Eurailpass, which covers 17 European countries, remain the same or decrease. A new pass, the Eurail Saver Flexipass, allows 10 days of first-class travel over two months at $524 per person, for two traveling together. For more information, contact a travel agent or Rail Europe at (800) 438-7245.
