You can give the gift of European rail travel this holiday season with travel deals on Cyber Monday offered by Rail Europe. One of the best gifts I ever received in my late teens was a Eurail Pass. It allowed me and a friend to explore the classic European cities to our hearts content without having to worry about hefty ticket prices to get from one city to the next. And it’s not just for your college-age children, rail travel is so reliable and readily available throughout Europe (and beyond) that families might find riding the rails even more convenient than traveling by car.
For families ready for a European adventure, this Cyber Monday — Dec. 2, 2013 — through Dec. 6, Rail Europe is offering special pricing on passes throughout Europe.
