Free Interrail pass for Europeans turning 18 - UPDATE

Young people will soon have another opportunity to broaden their horizons - the free Interrail pass proposal is getting a lot of attention, and here's what we know for now.

Education is not only about what we learn in class, what we read in books. It is what we discover about culture, traditions and values of each other. It is about our experiences. And we want that to be shared. First steps have been taken to introduce a "Free Interrail pass for Europeans turning 18" with a budget of €12 million for 2018. Over 20,000 young people are going to benefit from this travel experience.
