Eurail travelers now have access to more of the world than ever before. Last year, Eurail added Great Britain, Lithuania, and Macedonia to its list of countries accessible with the Global Pass. In 2020, that list is being expanded even further to include Estonia and Latvia. Holders of the Eurail Global Pass can use local trains, high-speed trains, and night trains across Europe, from as far north as Scandinavia, west as Portugal, and east as Turkey, with the Baltics being the latest region added to the network.

Eurail’s Latvia hub will be in Riga, while the Estonia hub will be in Tallinn, and no seat reservations will be required for Eurail Pass holders in either country. The pass will also grant travelers a discount of up to 50 percent on ferry connections between Riga and Stockholm, and Tallinn to Scotkholm and Helsinki.

In addition to now having access to these Baltic countries, the pass will also give travelers access two new trains in France and Italy, which run along the French Riviera and northern Italy. Eurail is also making it easier for young people to travel in 2020, with youth passes now 25 percent off for those between the ages of 12 and 27.
