Despite the outcome of the United Kingdom referendum announced on Friday 24 June, Eurail Group G.I.E. is reassuring customers that travelling with Interrail remains unaffected. Citizens of the UK can continue to explore Europe with Interrail. Likewise, Interrailers from elsewhere in Europe are still able to travel in the UK just as easily as before with an Interrail Pass.

An Interrail Pass provides European residents with borderless, unlimited rail travel in up to 30 European countries including the UK. Each year, over 250,000 European residents across all generations use Interrail to travel to new and unique destinations in Europe, interact and connect with people from alternative cultures, and learn more about the diversity and history that makes up Europe.

Conditions for Interrail eligibility and regions of travel will remain completely unchanged regardless of the recent results of the UK referendum. "We will continue to uphold the choice for all European residents to experience with Interrail what makes Europe so special as a destination," said Ms. Silvia Görlach, Sales & Marketing Manager of Eurail Group G.I.E.

Bringing together 30 nations, the Interrail Pass was founded to encourage European residents to travel in Europe in order to help foster cross-cultural exchange. "We regularly hear from our passengers how Interrail broadens their personal horizons and creates a lasting positive effect on their own intercultural understanding. We are pleased to continue to provide all European customers with this unique life-changing opportunity", adds Ms. Görlach.
