Early Birds Get Free Extra Day on Eurail Select Pass Purchased January Through March 2008 from Rail Europe

White Plains, NY, January 15, 2008 – Purchase a 6-, 8- or 10-day Eurail Select Pass from Rail Europe between January 1 - March 31, 2008 and receive one more day of travel for free. All Eurail pass categories (adult, saver and youth) are included, as are all country combinations. Rail travel days may be used non-consecutively within a 2-month period up to 6 months from the purchase date – which means this promotion can be used during peak summer travel season, depending on purchase date.

The Eurail Select Pass is a “create-your-pass” product, allowing the buyer to select 3, 4 or 5 European countries out of 23 possibilities*. The selected countries must be connected by rail or ferry.

2008 prices** for the Eurail Select Pass start at $444 US/CAD for a 6-day 3-country pass (providing 7 travel days with this promotion), $527 US/CAD for an 8-day 3-country pass (9 travel days) and $605 US/CAD for a 10-day pass (11 travel days); these lowest per person prices are for a Eurail Select Pass Saver (when two or more traveling together). There are also less expensive Youth versions for travelers under 26.

“We are quite pleased to offer this popular promotion to North American travelers once again”, said Frederic Langlois, President and CEO of Rail Europe, the largest North American distributor of Eurail and other European rail passes and tickets. “It’s one of the many cost saving offers we extend to travelers, along with special pass promotions and advance point-to-point ticket sales.”
