Eurail Pass Not Valid for RER Trains

By | January 9, 2015 | in Passes RER

The Eurail Pass is not valid for RER Trains in Paris operated by RATP (i.e. RER A, RER B).

As documented on the Eurail Group website, the benefits of the Eurail Pass will not work for RER trains, but does work for SNCF brand trains for intercity trains and inter-country trains within and originating from France such as TGV.
