35.000 free interrail tickets to young EU citizens

Have you always dreamed of going on Interrail? The European Union gives all 18-year-olds the opportunity to get a free interrail ticket that opens up the whole of Europe for you.

Discover EU

What is DiscoverEU?

DiscoverEU is an EU initiative that offers young EU citizens the opportunity to go on Interrail and travel by train around Europe for a full month. 35,000 young EU citizens get a chance to receive a free interrail ticket via DiscoverEU. If you are selected, you can travel for a period of minimum 1 day and up to 30 days between 1 July 2022 and 30 June 2023

Funded by the European Parliament, the project aims at supporting 18-year-olds to become more independent, develop soft skills and embrace European values.

Who can apply?

DiscoverEU is open to people aged 18. This means that people born in the period between 1 July 2003 and 30 June 2004 can apply to participate in DiscoverEU in the upcoming application round.

Note that you can also apply through 'DiscoverEU Inclusion' which allows young EU citizens with fewer opportunities to participate in DiscoverEU on equal footing with their peers. 

Application deadline and other practical information

More than 130. 0000 people have been awarded a travel pass since the first application round in June 2018. Another round will take place between Thursday 7 April 2022 at 12:00 (CEST) and Thursday 21 April 2022 at 12:00 (CEST).
