can you ride more than one train in one day and that only count as using "one day" out of the "five days in one month" pass?

can you ride more than one train in one day and that only count as using "one day" out of the "five days in one month" pass?

We are going to Ireland and am trying to see if we can ride the train within multiple cities in one day. We are getting a 5 day pass and wanting to know if each trip counts as a "day" or if we can ride a certain number of times in one day and that only be using one day of the pass?

thanks for any help!

    Hi Kali,

    A pass for "5 days in 1 month' is known as a 'flexipass'.

    A flexipass allows for a set number of travel days that must be completed within a longer time frame. In your case, you would have 5 'travel days' to be completed within a longer time frame of 1 month. The month would start to count down after you get your pass 'validated' at the station, which is something you would do before boarding your first train.

    'Travel days' on a flexipass refer to how many separate days you plan on using your rail pass. A ‘travel day’ is a 24 hour period from midnight to midnight. You may take as many trains as you wish during the 24 hour time frame and still only use one day of travel on a pass. For instance, if you were take a day train from 'city A' to 'city B' and then take a connecting train to 'city C' on the same day, then you would only use up one day of travel on your rail pass. Therefore, you can take multiple within 1 'travel day'.

    In contrast, if you were to take that connecting train to 'city C' on the next day, that would constitute 2 days of rail travel on your pass.

    With a flexipass, if you happen to take a night train that departs prior to 7 pm and arrives into the destination the following morning, then 2 days of rail travel will be used up on a rail pass. Most night trains; however, do depart after 7 pm, in which case only 1 day of rail travel would be used up on a rail pass.
