Seamless Travel Across Europe: Interrail and Eurail Passes To Be Accepted on European Sleeper Night Trains

Exciting news for travel enthusiasts! European Sleeper, in collaboration with Eurail and Interrail, is set to offer a delightful experience to pass holders of Interrail and Eurail. 

From July 1st, Interrail Global Passes and Eurail Global Passes will be valid on European Sleeper night trains that have been riding between Brussels, Antwerp, Rotterdam, Amsterdam, and Berlin. This development presents an excellent opportunity for pass holders to make the most of their travel privileges while indulging in the convenience and comfort of European Sleeper's services.

According to reports, European Sleeper has sold over 10,000 tickets for its three-times-weekly trains. The number shows a growing interest in overnight rail journeys

To embark on a memorable adventure aboard European Sleeper trains, Interrail/Eurail Global Pass holders will need to reserve a seat, couchette, or bed in advance, which can easily be done through the European Sleeper website.

The Eurail Pass, introduced in 1959 and formerly known as Europass or Eurorail Pass, is a rail pass that permits travel through 33 European countries on nearly all railroads and several shipping lines. 

European Sleeper is a new Dutch-Belgian rail cooperative organisation focusing on sleeper trains. At the end of May 2021, the company raised €500,000 in starting capital within three months by selling shares to over 350 small investors from various countries in Europe and beyond. In 2022, a total of €2,000,000 in shares were sold.

Promising Future Rail Routes

In line with the Green Deal, the European Union wants to use trains to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.

Consequently, the rail system is expanding, with more routes soon to be made available for travellers. From luxurious sleeper trains to high-speed services, these options offer a stress-free alternative for experiencing the best of Europe.

A night train service between Brussels and Prague is expected to come into operation in 2024. Another route linking Amsterdam to Barcelona is expected in 2025.

With the acceptance of Interrail and Eurail passes on European Sleeper night trains, exploring the beauty of Europe by rail is now more accessible and enticing than ever before.
