Think about when to Travel

Interrail EU have lots of information about where you might like to go interrailing in all seasons if you decide to avoid the busy summer period.
Whether you're travelling on your own or with friends from home, interrailing will give you the opportunity to meet lots of new people. Make sure you're polite and friendly to the people you meet, and you never know how many new friends you'll come home with from all over the world!
Look after each other
Ensure that you are looking out for the people you are travelling with, as well as those new friends you make while interrailing!
It's also great to try and check in with loved ones at home whenever you can. This will always be appreciated as they’ll be happy to know you’re well and you can let them know what a great time you are having!
