Europe by rail

EurotrainFor many privileged South Africans, the words “Eurail Pass” bring back memories of epic backpack journeys through Europe during university years abroad.

The famed “youth” Eurail passes are still one of the Netherlands-based Eurail Group’s landmark products, but this company that works with some 30 European railways and shipping lines sells nearly 850 different types of passes, covering 25 European countries and offering passes that work for a wide range of time periods. Using one of these passes is arguably the most flexible and economical ways to get around Europe, even if you’re just visiting one or a few countries. And for gay travelers, it’s worth noting that these passes are perfect for planning a trip to two or more of Europe’s main GLBT capitals – Amsterdam, Paris, Berlin, Barcelona, and Prague among them.

Eurail passes, which have been around since 1959, are available to non-Europeans, including residents of the U.S., Canada, Australia, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, China, Japan, South Africa, New Zealand, India, and so on.
