WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., AUGUST 4, 2015 – Rail Europe, Inc., the largest distributor of European rail products in North America, announces extended validities on German Rail Passes and discounts on German activities in celebration of Oktoberfest. Travelers who purchase a German Rail Pass Free Day Promotion between now and September 29, 2015 will receive a two-day extension on the 10-day pass and a four-day extension on the 15-day pass for travel completed by October 31, 2015.

Reservations are also not required on most German trains.

What’s more, travelers visiting Germany with a German Rail Pass or the German Rail Pass Free Day Promotion from Rail Europe can receive a 10 percent discount on the daily rate at select hotels and hostels in Berlin, Hamburg, Munich and other German cities. Travel bonuses also include discounts on city tours, day trips, river cruises and more.
