What is a travel day?

When using the Interrail France Germany Pass, i's important to understand the concept of travel days and how they are counted. Here are some key points to keep in mind:


  1. Duration of a Travel Day: A travel day lasts for one full calendar day, from 00:00 to 23:59. During this time, you have unlimited access to the train networks covered by your Interrail Pass.
  2. Total Travel Days: With your Interrail Pass, you have a total of 7 travel days that you can use within the 1-month validity period of your Pass. These days can be used to travel to different destinations of your choice.
  3. Inbound and Outbound Journeys: Out of your total travel days, only 2 can be used for travel within your home country or when passing through your home country. These are referred to as Inbound/Outbound journeys. When scheduling a train in your own country, you will need to activate these special travel days in addition to a regular travel day.
  4. Night Trains and Travel Days: When traveling on a night train, you typically only need to use one travel day: the day of departure. Even if the train departs on one calendar day and arrives on the next, it is usually counted as a single travel day. However, if you change trains after midnight, a second travel day will be required. Additionally, if you are using a night train to return home, a second travel day may also be necessary.

It's important to consult the specific guidelines and rules provided with your Interrail France Germany Pass to ensure you are using your travel days correctly. This will help you make the most of your Pass and plan your journeys effectively.
