- Countries included from 2020 are Great Britain, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania.
- The 7pm rule applies
- Eurail Pass holders are entitled to special Passholder fares
- Children & Youth Conditions:
- Children under four travel free and do not require a pass. Children are not entitled to a seat and during busy times may be required to sit on the accompanying adult’s lap
- Children aged 4-11 travel free with a Child Pass and must be accompanied, by an adult with an Adult Pass (The adult does not have to be a family member and can be anyone over 18 years)
- Up to two children can travel with one adult. For example, when two adults are travelling together they can travel with four children
- If more than two children are travelling with one adult, a separate First Class Youth Pass needs to be purchased for the additional children

Prior to boarding a train, bus or boat, passengers must record their trip in the Travel Report on the Pass cover (in blue or black ink). If you travel without having entered the trip in the Travel Report, you risk a fine and payment of a full fare ticket. The conditions of use are no longer printed in the Eurail cover but in the traveller’s guide. Therefore, it is mandatory to give traveller’s guide provided
