Utrecht, Netherlands, (PRNewswire/WorldTourismNews) - ISIC Card Holders Receive 2 Free Travels Days on the Eurail Global Pass

Students and backpackers under the age of 26 are encouraged to take advantage of a promotional campaign which starts today. Eurail Group G.I.E., Europe's premier rail pass provider, has extended the joint agreement with ISIC (International Student Identity Card).

In celebration of this joint enterprise, a worldwide promotion is being launched to allow ISIC card holders to benefit from this collaboration: two days of free travel with the purchase of any 15 day continuous Eurail Global Youth Pass, valid in 2nd class. This endorsement offers excellent value for money and can be purchased between May 1st and July 31st, 2010.


Eurail Group currently works in conjunction with major European railways, thus providing onward connections to 24 European countries within their vast portfolio of products. Ana Dias e Seixas, Eurail Group's Marketing Director said, "This joint venture makes commercial sense to all parties involved. With the success of last year's campaign with ISIC, we are confident that we are on the right track. Together, we hope to achieve synergy by utilizing each others leadership position in the respective markets by enticing more youths and students to explore Europe with Eurail".

Eurail's ongoing commitment towards attracting student card holders to Europe has caught the attention of Audio-Guides. To further accompany this spring promotion, MP3 Audio-Guides are offering a further 20% discount to ISIC card holders. Eurail customers are free to discover Europe like never before with this perfect European travel companion.


Eurail Global Passes remain attractive to adventurous backpackers by allowing unlimited travel in 21 countries. The best way to fully utilize the passes potential is by travelling on regional trains that do not require supplements, these trains allow the pass holder to 'hop on and off' at their own pace and enjoy the surrounding countryside.
