How to use
Validation
» Passes must be validated within 6 months of issuing date by a railway official in France (station’s desk) who also fills in the passport number 
» Passes must be validated prior to boarding 1st train (All parties must be present when validating a Saverpass) 
» The date of travel has to be entered in the correct way before boarding the first train, by the traveller, in the corresponding box of the calendar

7:00pm rule
» If an overnight train starts after 7:00pm on a validated Eurail One Country Pass, the pass holder must enter the next day’s date on the pass, provided it falls within the validity of the pass. 
» If an overnight train starts before 7:00pm on a validated Eurail One Country Pass, the pass holder has to fill in two days on the pass: the starting day’s date AND the arrival day’s date on the pass, provided it falls within the validity of the pass.
 

Each time before boarding a train, bus or boat, it is important that passengers record their trip in the Travel Report on the Pass cover (in blue or black ink). If passengers travel without having entered the trip in the Travel Report, they risk a fine and payment of a full fare ticket.
