FREE Passes for kids


We believe that experiencing Europe with your family can be truly amazing. That's why children aged 11 or younger on the date you choose to start your trip can get a free Interrail Child Pass. One of the best ways your child can learn about the world is by seeing it.

Passes for kids

No Pass needed for kids aged 3 or younger

Children under 4 on the date you choose to start your trip do not 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 to guarantee a seat for your child you must reserve a seat in advance. However, a free Interrail Child Pass is required to make a seat reservation. Make sure to order a Child Pass with your Adult Pass if you're planning on booking seats for your child younger than 4.

On night trains, it is necessary to reserve and pay for a separate couchette or sleeper if you would like your child to have their own bed.


Free Pass for kids aged 4 to 11

Children aged 4-11 on the date you choose to start your trip can get a free Child Pass. This Pass can be ordered together with an Adult Pass (applies to all Interrail Passes). When ordering your Interrail Adult Pass, add the number of Child Passes you need to your cart from the Pass tables.

Up to two children can travel for free with any one adult. The adult they travel with does not have to be a family member, just any adult over the age of 18 at the time of travel.


If more than two children want to travel with one adult, a separate Youth Pass will need to be purchased per extra child.


Reservations for kids

Seat reservations are not included in our Passes. If you want to travel on certain types of trains like night trains and high-speed trains, you'll need to make reservations for all people traveling, including kids. Find out more about reservations and reservation fees.


Travelling together with kids

Our self-service Reservations booking tool assigns seats through an automated system that can't take seating preferences into account. To ensure that you and your little ones are assigned seats together, we recommend adding their free Interrail Child Passes to your order, adding them as travellers to your account and booking your reservations well in advance. The sooner you book the reservations, the less crowded the trains are and there is a higher likelihood of being seated together for your train journey, making your experience of travelling with your young ones seamless and relaxed.


Please note: Booking in advance cannot guarantee seats being assigned together. If this is the case for your reservation, please contact the train carrier to arrange seating swaps or request assistance from the conductor on board the train.
