Hi

I need some advise please. I have dual citizinship (ZA and Netherlands). Traveling to Europe with my partner who has a South African Passport. Would it work out if I travel on my dutch passport and my partner on her South African one? Eurail vs Interrail? Is this the same trains ie would we be able to travel together?

Thanks
Marike

Hi Marike!

The basic rule for getting an InterRail ticket is: Residency in an European country during the 6 months before the InterRail trip. This means you probably would have to get an EuRail pass for your trip. However, if your NL passport doesnt show any signs of your current residency in ZA, you could buy an InterRail pass...

Anyway, it is no problem to travel together using an InterRail and an EuRail pass...you would just have to pay attention where you are going since EuRail isnt valid in all 30 countries where you can EuRail. In case you have to pay a supplement/reservation for a particular connection, prices are usually the same for IR/ER.
