Eurotrain & Air Route to

Europe by Inter-rail:

Europe has taken Britain to its heart. A high percentage of Europeans speaks English, especially the young, and most will understand you. The cities are changing fast and becoming more cosmopolitan and they are all easily accessible from London.

here's never been a better or more exciting time to travel and experience the differences, the similarities and the changes firsthand. Traveling by rail gives you the chance to see new places in comfort - and to have a good time. An inter-rail pass can give you unlimited rail travel within 28 countries. Buy a pass for the zone or zones you wish to travel in. Prices are based on how long you want to travel for and how many zones you want to explore.

Remember, 'Inter-railers' also get special rates on the Eurostar and many ferries.

For additional information phone 0990 848 848.
