How to make use of the benefits

Everything you need to know about how Interrail Pass benefits work

First of all, you need to have an Interrail Pass! Check? Secondly, your Interrail Pass needs to be valid. When you order an Interrail Pass, you get to choose its start and end date. You can take advantage of Pass Benefits during these dates.

Mobile Pass

If you have a mobile Pass

Our mobile Pass is paperless ticket that can be added instantly to your phone. With everything on one app from planning your trip to boarding the train, you can explore 33 European countries with ease and enjoy more freedom than ever before. 

  • For Pass benefits that are on location, simply show your mobile Pass in the My Pass view to the person behind the counter to get the discount. 
  • If you are accessing a benefit online, you can generally use your Pass number as a discount code on the website of the benefit provider. 
Paper Pass

If you have a Flexi Pass

(for example, for travel on 7 days within a period of 1 month)

  • You can only take advantage of free benefits on dates you have written in the Travel Calendar on your Interrail Pass. If it's a free overnight ferry, you can enter either the date of departure or arrival in your Travel Calendar. Remember that this is only valid for paper Passes. 

  • For all other benefits, you don't need to specify the date in your Travel Calendar.

If you have a Continuous Pass

(for example, for travel on every day within a period of 15 days)

  • You can take advantage of all benefits on any day your Interrail Pass is valid.

Benefits can usually be arranged on the spot. For some, particularly international ferries, you need to book them in advance. You can find details for individual benefits in each country above.

We're always looking to add great new offers. From time to time, benefits become unavailable. While this does not happen often, if you're planning your trip to make use of a specific benefit, we recommend first confirming availability with the company that offers it. You can contact the company directly, or get in touch with our team.


For both mobile and paper Passes 


Remember that free benefits are different from discounted benefits. 

  • For a discount on a full-fare transportation ticket, you do not need to use a travel day. 
  • If the benefit is fully included in your Pass like a short ferry that you can access for free with it, you have to use a travel day.
