Do the bonuses for boats use up a day of travel on my Eurail Global Pass?

if I buy the 10 or 15 continuous day global pass and I decided to ride one of the boats in switzerland or rhine river germany that's included in the rail pass with discounted price, does that mean i used one day travel from my rail pass?

    Hi Catherine,

    'Travel days' are not applicable to the 'consecutive' (continuous) passes, since these passes are for unlimited travel within the time frame allowed. There is no 10 day consecutive/continuous option of the Eurail Global Pass, but there is a 15 day consecutive/continuous option.

    'Travel days' only apply to flexi passes.

    With regard to the flexi versions of the Eurail Global Pass:

    For any bonus that's free, it would use up a 'travel day' on the Eurail Global Pass.

    If it's a discounted bonus, it generally would use up a 'travel day' on the Eurail Global Pass.

    The only boats free with a Eurail Global Pass are the BLS boat services on Lake Brienz and Lake Thun. Therefore, to use your Eurail Global Pass on these boats would require the use of a travel day.

    All other boats, including boats on Lake Lucerne and Lake Geneva, are 50% off with a Eurail Global Pass. Since such boats are not completely covered by the pass, a travel day would not be used up.

    The 'KD German Rhine Line' cruises on the Rhine are discounted 20% with a Eurail Global Pass. Therefore, this would not require the use of a travel day.
