Have you been looking for a fantastic, inexpensive and easy way to travel through Europe at your own leisure? Possibly the only things that satisfy that equation are discount Eurail passes. You can get Eurail passes though any travel agent and at hundreds of online sites. However, to take advantage of the discounts, you have to know a few things.

First, know where to go. I always suggest the Internet. You won't have to pay any big travel agent fees on top of the pass price. In addition, you can see all the plans clearly laid out for you. You won't feel pressure from anyone about which pass to get. If you feel you need some expert advice about which one would be the best for you, ask an agent, but buy online.

Finding Eurail Passes

You can also get discount Eurail passes by traveling during off times of the year. This is generally not summer. There is a massive amount of tourism during the summer. Because of this, prices tend to go up. If you can travel in early spring, fall or winter, you will find unbelievable discounts, not only with the Eurail pass, but on flights and hotels as well.

In addition, if you are traveling in a group of two or more and you know that you will never be traveling alone, you can get a discount. The discount will be given on a per person basis, and is usually helpfully lower than if you were to purchase for individual travelers. Use the extra money on tours, food or souvenirs.
