France Opts Out of Eurail Select Pass

Jump to last reply

The popular Eurail Select Railpass, where you can chose up to five separate countries as a block for your pass to be valid in will no longer see France as an option good sources tell me as of Jan 1, 2013.

It will be the first time a country has opted out of the Eurail scheme - before it was always adding countries - like in 2013 Turkey will become a member of the Eurailpass and Eurail Select Pass.

But if planning on using a Eurail Select Pass with France as one country I think if you buy before Dec 31, 2012 you can use a pass for the next six months after issue - really activate it within six months and then use it for its 2-month validity period.
