Free Interrail pass for Europeans turning 18!

With a budget of EUR 12 million in 2018, this action is expected to give an estimated 20,000-30,000 young people a travel experience that would help foster a European identity, reinforce common European values and promote the discovery of European sites and cultures.

The action will seek to offer young people, regardless of social or educational background and including people with reduced mobility, a chance to travel abroad.

The first participants are expected to travel this summer. They will do so by rail as a general rule, but alternative modes of transport should be available where necessary, taking into account environmental considerations, as well as time and distance.
