How do I buy an Interrail Pass?

Before buying an Interrail Pass

  • You can buy an Interrail Pass in all of VR’s service points at the earliest 11 months before the beginning of the trip.
  • Interrail Passes are not sold on the vr.fi website but you can buy them from the international interrail.eu website
  • When the Pass is bought, the validity period is marked on it. 
  • When buying an Interrail Pass, you need a valid passport or personal identity card. Please note that a driving license is not accepted. If you intend to use your personal identity card as proof of identity during your trip, check whether it is accepted in the countries where you intend to travel. 

After you have bought an Interrail Pass

  • If your trip is cancelled in its entirety before the first journey day, the price of the Interrail Pass is refunded to you with a service charge deducted from it. 
  • You can make changes to your Interrail Pass. If you haven't yet used your ticket, you can postpone its start date by up to 11 months from the date of purchase.
  • Interrail Passes are mainly used without a seat reservation. However, some European railway companies require seat reservations on certain trains. You can find more information about seat reservations on the interrail.eu website.  
  • We recommend that you take out a travel insurance policy. Insurance provides extra protection in many situations, for instance if you have bought a Promotional Pass and have to cancel your trip due to illness.  

Trains to Russia

Russia is not one of the Interrail countries but VR can take you to Vyborg, St. Petersburg and all the way to Moscow.

For the homebound journey

Your Interrail Pass is not valid in your country of residence, apart from leaving and re-entering when travelling on Global Pass. If you want to save travelling days on your Pass, you can purchase a separate ticket for domestic travel.
