InterRail.eu has been awarded a Euractiv Award in the category of Services & Others. Of course we were very pleased with this honour.
The European winners of the Fondation EurActiv Awards for Debating Europe Nationally were recognized at a ceremony at the European Parliament in Brussels on November 12, 2009.
"We are very proud to have won this Euractiv Award, which underlines the Pan-European spirit of our European train travel products and our websites," says Managing Director Paulien Pierik.
The InterRail website offers customers the opportunity to purchase Europe train passes, known as InterRail Passes, in six languages - stressing the international character of the product. With payment possibilities in local currencies (British Pound and Euro), plus the convenience of free delivery, the website's growing popularity is evident in its 12,000+ Facebook Fans.
European train travel is certainly not only reserved for young explorers. Besides the Youth Passes (discounts for <26) that allow travel by train through 30 countries all over the continent, adults are also welcome with the InterRail pass on the European trains. Since 2010 there are even discounted senior Passes for travellers of 60 years and older!
"I am very proud of the way we have managed to revitalize a classic European train travel product," says Marketing Director Jeroen de Bruin. "This Euractiv Award motivates us even more to continue with our mission to promote this true European product."
The EurActiv Awards wish to recognise successfully executed ideas for debating Europe nationally in ways that can be applied across Europe.
