When Bulgaria opened the railway to the holders of the Eurail Global Pass in 2011, Eurail would be more attractive to overseas travelers. This means that the Global Pass, which has been hailed as the “European Golden Ticket” for 50 years, will give holders unlimited access to the railways of 22 European countries.

The group also strives to make the various Eurail Pass worthwhile while providing services on behalf of the railways that participate in the Pass products. Ana Dias e Seixas, Marketing Director of Eurail Group GIE commented: “We are very pleased that Bulgarian State Railways BDZ has decided to join the European Rail Pass products. We believe that this new country will be a global destination that hopes to explore the European continent by train. Pass holders bring great benefits."
