WHITE PLAINS, NY — (MARKET WIRE) — September 29, 2006 — Travel one extra day free by train when you purchase a 6-, 8- or 10-day Eurail Selectpass from Rail Europe here in North America between October 1-December 31, 2006. Rail travel days may be used non-consecutively within a 2-month period up to 6 months after the purchase date — which means that this promotion can be used as late as June 2007, depending on purchase date.
The Eurail Selectpass is a “create-your-pass” product, allowing the buyer to select 3, 4 or 5 European countries out of the 22 possibilities*. The selected countries must be connected by rail or ferry.
This offer is valid for all versions of the Eurail Selectpass, including the youth (those under 26) and Saver (for 2 or more people traveling together) versions.
“You can combine this free extra day offer with Rail Europe’s own recently announced promotion and save a bundle,” says Fabrice Morel, President and CEO of Rail Europe Group, the largest North American distributor of Eurail products and a wide range of other European rail passes and tickets. “When you buy the Eurail Selectpass with the free extra travel day and use that pass this fall, you’ll receive a credit of 25% of the price of the Eurail Selectpass which you can apply towards another train ticket or railpass purchase made by the end of the year.” [see Rail Europe Sept. 14 press release]
