Bring the kids along too
Experiencing Europe with your family doesn't have to be expensive. Children aged 11 or younger get a 50% discount on adult prices. And if they are under 4 they travel for free. One of the best ways your child can learn about the world is by seeing it.
Children under 4 travel for free
Children under 4 on their first day of travel, go for free. They don't need an InterRail pass. On crowded trains, parents may be requested to put the child on their lap, as they are not guaranteed their own seat. If you would like a seat for your child you must reserve a seat in advance. On night trains, it is necessary to reserve and pay for a separate couchette or sleeper if you would like your child to have its own bed.
Children in the age 4-11 get 50% off
For children in the age 4-11 on their first day of travel, you can buy a child pass. Child passes are available for either 1st class or 2nd class travel. Simply select the child prices in the pass table. Prices shown include the child discount. It is possible to order a child pass without ordering an adult pass in the same order.
How to order
Select the 'Family' or 'Child' tab (depending on which option is available for that particular pass) in the price table of the InterRail pass you would like to order.
- Travellers aged 12 or over on the day they start using their InterRail pass, need to have a youth pass for 2nd class travel or an adult pass if 1st class travel is preferred.
- Travellers 60 or over get a senior discount on InterRail Global Passes.
