Eurail Passes Now Go to the Czech Republic
The Eurail Group, owner of that post-college summer favorite, the Eurail Pass, has announced further expansions to its product range. As of January 1, 2009, the Czech Republic will be included in the Eurail Global Pass, and Bulgaria is a new option for the One Country Passes.
Introduced simply as the "Eurailpass" in 1959, the Global Pass has seen many extensions over the years, increasing from 13 countries to the 20 countries available today. We're told that, to mark a successful half-decade of rail travel, the Eurail Group will launch several anniversary specials in 2009. Details are yet to be announced, so stay tuned.
