Eurail Pass Sales Head Toward Record Year

New benefits for Eurail Pass holders traveling on Eurostar.

EurailEurail Group announced an increase in sales by 9 percent in the first six months of 2010, compared to the same period last year. The company, specializing in selling Eurail Passes for train travel online in Europe, offers four passes through 25 countries, including the Czech Republic, Denmark, Montenegro and Switzerland.

Its four passes include the Global Pass, covering travel in 21 countries, the Select Pass to travel in three, four or five countries, the Regional Pass and the One Country Pass. The Global Pass and Select Pass sales have both increased by an average of nine percent. Recent development includes marketing in China, India, Japan and South Korea, with a 70 percent sales rise within the Chinese and South Korean market.
