Would you like to visit Europe for FREE? Yes, free! The European Union, has decided to lend a hand to all 18 year olds who want to travel and discover the splendid countries that surround us.
A beautiful idea with over 20 thousand free passes that will allow you to discover Europe. So let’s see together how to apply and how to get one of these passes made available by the EU.
FREE TICKETS TO VISIT EUROPE REQUIREMENTS AND DEADLINES:
To apply for one of the Interrail passes to travel around Europe, you must apply on the European portal and there is time until May 16th and, if you are chosen, the free pass must be used in the EU between August 1st, 2019 and January 31st 2020. Here are the requirements to participate in this announcement:
- be born between 2 July 2000 and 1 July 2001 (included)
- to be European citizens
- present a travel program
- you can participate even if you have disabilities or health problems
- those who have already participated will not be able to request again
- you can start in groups of up to five people.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE EU INITIATIVE:
Presenting a travel program is one of the requisites for participating in this initiative that could leave you perplexed, but in reality it is fundamental. Presenting a travel program is important because the purpose of the initiative is to allow young people to explore many aspects and sides of European culture and maybe get out of the classic itineraries that always see the usual cities like London, Berlin and Paris among the chosen destinations.
You will therefore have to try to be enterprising and put European cities in your travel program less popular than the big capitals. Although the pass is theoretically linked only to travel by train, if your itinerary is chosen, you will also be able to get some transfers to reach the islands or remote areas. The selected candidates will thus become DiscoverEU Ambassadors and will talk about their experience on social media, or they will organise a presentation in the school or community they belong to.
