"This promotion has always been popular with North American travelers", notes Fabrice Morel, President and CEO of Rail Europe, the largest North American distributor of Eurail and other European rail passes and tickets. "There are many ways we try to save people money on their European trips - we regularly offer a variety of promotions and deals, including kids ride free, or buy a pass and save 50% on your next rail pass. In addition, we sell advance purchase point-to-point tickets in some countries that can save up to 40% on the usual price, for those only going between points A and B."
