Interrailing is a unique experience where you can travel through Europe by train using an international rail pass. The Interrail all-in-one pass lets you explore over 40,000 destinations in 33 countries, hopping on and off as many trains as you like, at times that suit you. It’s the most flexible and affordable way to explore Europe.
Yes, an Interrail Pass is valid for travel on the Eurostar but you need to book your ticket in advance of your departure date and pay a seat reservation fee. You can make your passholder reservation up to three months in advance.
An Interrail Pass is available to anyone who lives in Europe. If you are under 27 or over 60 you even get a discount on your pass. Purchase your all-in-one Interrail Pass and travel as much as you want on participating European train networks for a set amount of travel days, ranging from 4 days to a maximum of 3 months.
Most trains can be boarded by simply showing your Interrail Pass on your phone but for high-speed trains, which includes Eurostar, you will need to buy an additional seat reservation.
To travel with Eurostar using your Interrail pass, you need to book your seat in advance and pay a seat reservation fee. You’ll be travelling in either Standard or Standard Premier, depending on the class of your Interrail pass.

Where will your adventure take you?
London – An iconic city with oodles of charm, London is one for culture vultures, history-lovers and shopaholics alike.
Paris – From the Arc de Triomphe to la Tour Eiffel, there are many reasons to fall head over heels for the French capital.
Brussels – Moules-frites and waffles may spring to mind, but Brussels has more to explore than you think.
You must arrive at the station at our recommended arrival time to allow plenty of time to get through border controls and security. One of our team members will check your pass and seat reservation. Once you’re through to the departure lounge, you can relax or do a bit of shopping before it’s time to board.
Once on board, you can sit back and enjoy the journey. Delicious meals, drinks and snacks are available at Café Métropole, our onboard bar buffet, or, if you’re travelling in Standard Premier, a light meal will be served at your seat.
Our newer trains have free wi-fi and onboard entertainment so you can connect with friends, catch up on your emails or watch a Hollywood blockbuster en route.
