International Railway Expert, Nicky Gardner stated: “As Interrail turns 50, now is perhaps the time to rediscover the slow trains which, being free of supplements and restrictions, are perfectly suited to Interrail, as reported by The Independent.

“Interrail is about flexibility, stopping off on a whim, and savouring the serendipitous discoveries and diversions that come with ‘Slow Travel’, she continued.

Eurail BV, a Dutch organisation in charge of the scheme stated:  “The promotion runs during Europe Day which falls on 9 May, paying tribute to European unity and cultural exchange which have been at the core of the Interrail pass from the very beginning.”
