    Hi Kamal,

    That would count as 4 separate days of rail travel on a pass.

    A flexipass (most rail passes are flexipasses) allows for a set number of travel days, which must be completed within a time frame of 1 month (or 2 months with some passes).

    'Travel days' on a flexipass refer to how many separate days you plan on using your rail pass. A rail 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 railpass. In contrast, if you were to take that connecting train to 'city C' on the next day, then you would use up 2 days of rail travel on your pass.

    One important rule to remember is that if you happen to take a night train that departs prior to 7 pm to arrive into the destination the next morning, then 2 days of rail travel will be used up on a railpass. 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.
    • @Jeff - I have a similar question to Kamal's, for the German Rail Pass, https://www.raileurope.ca/rail-ticket..., it says 7 consecutive days the pass is valid. Does this mean once I activate the pass, it is only good for 7 days straight? Or can I use it on 7 different days before Sept 29?

      Thanks!

      Hi Alyssa,

      If you purchase the promotion for the 7 (consecutive day) German Pass, then you would have 7 straight days of unlimited travel, starting when you validate the pass.

      To give you an example, if you begin using a 7 day 'consecutive' pass on September 19th, it would expire at 11:59 PM on September 25th.

      For this promotion, you would just have to be sure to place your order before September 29th, and your travel would have to happen before October 31st.
