UTRECHT, The Netherlands, Aug. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ —

Eurail Select & Global Pass Holders Receive Free Extra Days to Explore Europe 

From August 1 to September 30, 2014 Eurail’s latest promotion offers non-European residents additional free travel days on the Eurail Global Pass Continuous and 4-Country Select Passes.  

By offering free travel days, Eurail aims to maximize its customers’ travel experience with the possibility of discovering even more of Europe by train. The number of extra travel days depends on the type of pass: the campaign offers one extra travel day for the 4-Country Select Pass, two extra travel days for the 15-day Global Pass Continuous, three extra travel days for the 21-day Global Pass Continuous and five extra travel days for the one month Global Pass Continuous. This special offer is applicable to all product variations for both first and second class.

As passes are available within a six month pre-booking period, Eurail customers can profit from this promotion until April 2015. Thus, they can further benefit from the many advantages that are synonymous with off-peak traveling. "The advantages of shorter lines in tourism sites and lower prices are obvious," states Silvia Gorlach, Marketing Manager of the Eurail Group G.I.E. "As visiting Europe once the large crowds have left, is a completely different experience, in which tourists have the chance to discover Europe, its culture and inhabitants in a more authentic and relaxed environment."

Eurail’s Extra Days promotion runs alongside Eurail’s "Free Roaming" promotion, launched on July 7, offering the first 2,500 Eurail Select and Global Pass customers who register their pass purchase on http://www.eurail-roaming.com a Eurail Free Roaming SIM Card with a pre-paid credit of 18 Euros.

Eurail Passes are available from a worldwide network of Authorized General Sales Agents. Please visit http://www.eurailgroup.org/eurail
