InterRail VS Eurail

by ryanwong » 01 Jun 2011 - 16:25

Hi there,

Personal details first, I am a British Citizen (UK passport) and I am now living in Hong Kong.

I wonder if I require a InterRail pass or EuRail pass. Using the system on this website, I was asked to use a EuRail pass, however I doubt if I am eligible in using EuRail pass as I have no proof of my residency outside Europe, the only passport i have is UK passport.

I purchased an InterRail Global pass last summer (as advised by someone) and I bought it through this web. I am visiting Europe again this summer and I try to purchase through this website again but i was NOT able to select the pass to be mailed to Hong Kong. i.e. if i select my country of residency as UK, the pass must be mailed to the UK. (which i was able to do so last year)

Please advise on the issue. Thanks.

if you have British passport you can buy IR pass without any problems.

if you can not obtain your IR pass through post you can buy it on each bigger station in Europe. So you do not have to have the pass when you make reservation.

Hi.
Just to add an explanation: it isn't allowed anymore to sell the Interrail pass to an address outside of Europe as for licensing facts. Sorry. :shock:
An other option to the one mentioned by Hetman is to get it send to a friends address in Europe where you will start your trip.

Thanks for the replies! Well, I wonder if I could select Germany ad the postal address if my passport was from the uk. I tried to change the mailing address from ik but it didn''t work.

Hi.
Just do it the way it is explained here: https://en.rail.cc/how-to-order ... icket.html
At the beginning select "Germany" in the top of the shop.
And when entering your personal date, fill in "the UK". It really became complicate. :oops:
