Interrail  

 

Conditions of Use and Supplements

The Interrail pass will be presented along with an ID card with photograph to any authorised agent who requests it; failure to comply with this requirement will mean that the passenger will be deemed to travelling without a ticket.

Interrail is valid for the class indicated on the pass. With a 2nd class pass you can travel in 1st class, paying the price difference, at the full fare.

Flexible pass holders must indicate the date of travel before starting the journey in the corresponding box; it must be written with black or blue permanent pen, in the form (dd/mm), for example, May 7 = 07/05.

The trip is valid from midnight of the chosen day. If you start the journey on a direct night train departing after 7.00 p.m. and arriving after 4.00 a.m., only the date of the day of departure must be shown. The same process applies when travelling by ferry, included in the Pass.

No pass can be used before midnight on the first day of validity; the right to travel expires at midnight on the last day of validity.

The pass will be presented stapled on a cover, which describes the main points of the conditions for use, together with a form for the registration of the Global Pass holder details and a Travel Journal that must be completed with the information regarding the journeys, which will be checked by the control staff. Once the trips have been used up, the passenger is required to send the pass free of charge to the address indicated on the cover to check its detailed use. Subsequently, the passenger can recover the pass, if requested, by also receiving at his address a gift from Interrail.

The following will be considered as fraud: travelling with a pass with the altered date, showing a photocopy instead of the original, the pass being used by a different person or travelling outside the validity period.

For trains or ferries that so require, the seat reservation, lying seat supplement, cabin use in shipping companies, port fee, etc. must be purchased, for this it will be essential to present the pass that is valid on the date of travel requested.

For journeys by AVE, Alvia, Euromed and Intercity of holders of an Interrail pass that is valid for travel on Renfe, a fixed supplement will continue to be paid depending on the price option chosen to travel. The Elige, Elige Confort y Prémium options will be offered.

Reimbursements

Issue conditions

There are a series of mandatory criteria at the time of purchase.
