Free Eurail app available
Eurail Group GIE has launched the "Rail Planner App" designed to assist travellers who are travelling throughout Europe through Eurail and InterRail.
The free app offers everything pass holders need to successfully plan and execute their rail journey by providing offline timetable information for international European trains and connections. As an offline app, an internet connection is no longer necessary once it’s been downloaded, with the exception of accessing some of the special features. This ensures that travellers will always have timetable information at hand, avoiding expensive roaming costs.
Besides timetable information, Rail Planner helps travelers to find their closest train station with the inbuilt augmented reality function, and there is also a feature which specifically benefits pass holders; rail pass holders are entitled to a whole host of extra benefits, offering free and discounted boat and ferry trips, discounts in hotels, museums and more. Information about these discounts is featured on the app, as well as city maps and country facts for all participating countries.
It is now available from the App Store or Google Play.
