Should I choose regular tickets or Interrail?
The simple answer is: it depends on the extent of your trip.
If you’re going on a one-way trip from Hamburg to Brussels, there’s no doubt that it’s both cheaper and easier to travel with a regular ticket, as a 2nd class Super Sparpreis ticket is booked with a few clicks and for as little as €36. If on the other hand, you’re making a round trip from Copenhagen to Rome with several stops on the way, it’s definitely more economically advantageous to travel with an Interrail pass.
Good to know: If you are 27 years or under (Youth) or older than 60 (Senior), you get a discounted price on your Interrail Pass. Two children, up to 12 years old, travel for free with a full-fare adult.
When you use the All Aboard Trip Planner, we calculate both options but the choice is always up to you.
In addition to the price aspect, Interrail passes offer a completely different type of flexibility, as you decide yourself when you want to travel instead of having to deal with specific departure times. If you feel spontaneous and want to take a detour, you can easily use one of your extra travel days. Last but not least, it gives you access to a range of discounts and offers around Europe, like free ferry rides or cheap bike rentals.
