Eurail Global Pass sales increased by 9.4 per cent and Eurail Select Pass sales increased by 5.0 per cent compared to 2011. “Based on the first five months of 2012, we are pleased to see the surge in sales of both the Eurail Global and Eurail Select Pass and we hope that this is an early indicator that consumer travel in general is on the rebound.
