The Eurorail (informally known as Eurail) Group G.I.E. is a Netherlands-based company, registered in Luxembourg, that sells passes and tickets for European railroads. It is owned by a group of European rail carriers and shipping companies.

The Eurail Pass is priced for first-class travel, while some individual countries have second class passes at lower cost.
