Buy more than 1 Select Pass?

My daughter will be studying in Florence Italy for a semester from Jan 2015. I see there is sale of 20% off currently and must travel by March 31, 2015. She asked me to buy Global pass but it is a lot of money. Also she has classes Mon-Thur and also there are about 4-5 weeks school field trips arranged already before end of March. Her spring break is before end of March, so she has 10 days to travel then.

My question is -

1. Can I buy her 2 select pass (10 days) - she can use one in Jan/ Feb and one in March during her spring break.

2. Do you think she will use 2 with her classes/field trips schedule - but spring break has 10 days just not sure how many days she will be on the train.

3. What 4 countries (or 8 if I buy 2) have the best value from Florence for her to explore?

Thank you!

    Hi Wendy,

    Starting January 1st, the pricing for the Eurail Select Pass will be based on the specific countries included on the pass. Until then, the countries on a Eurail Select Pass have no bearing on one's price, and the 20% promotion expires on December 31st. Therefore, if you do purchase the promotion, the cost of the pass would not be dependent upon the countries you choose to put on it.

    If you purchase the 20% promotion, it is true that the travel would have to be done before March 31st of 2015. Otherwise, without this promotion, rail passes would just have to be validated for first use within 6 months from the date they are purchased.

    The number of travel days and the countries you include on the pass would be up to you and your daughter.

  • Also, when we purchase it, can we elect to have an electronic tickets printed rather than sending via regular postal mail? Let me know if we can buy 2 passes for the same person also. Thanks.

      I'm sorry, however, the pass is only able to be issued as a physical document that would have to be shipped to you. Any order placed on our website takes 24 to 48 business hours to be processed in addition to the time it takes to ship the documents; an additional 2 to 3 business days to be shipped if the option of standard delivery is chosen or an additional 1 business day if the option of express delivery is chosen.

      Yes, you can purchase multiple passes for the same person.
