Save Up To 50% on Future Purchase of European Rail Products: When You Buy a Railpass Before September 30, 2008 from Rail Europe



    WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Aug. 25 /CNW/ -- Back by popular demand, Rail Europe
has re-launched its money-saving promotion on railpasses: buy a railpass
before September 30th, 2008 and Rail Europe will credit 25% of the purchase
price towards another European rail product -- either a pass or ticket(s) --
booked later this year. The second purchase, to be made by December 20, 2008
and must have a value of at least double the credit -- which means you can
save as much as 50% on train travel. Travel on railpasses can take place up to
6 months after purchase, so this promotion lets you save on travel through
June 19th of 2009.
    
    25% of current purchase is credited
    
    For example, a couple traveling on the 200 mph TGV East high-speed line
to explore eastern France with two France Saverpasses (from $480 USD/CAD for
two passes in 2nd class) would earn a credit of $120 USD/CAD toward a pair of
roundtrip Eurostar Leisure Select tickets (normally costing $195 USD/CAD per
person in 1st class) to later do some shopping in London and Paris in the
spring.
    Since passes are valid for 6 months, parents could buy one Eurail Global
Pass Youth (from $517 USD/CAD for 15 days of rail travel in 20 countries
within a 2-month period) for their son or daughter to roam around Europe this
fall and earn $129.25 USD/CAD credit toward two 3-day Swiss Saver Flexipasses
(normally costing a total of $536 USD/CAD 1st class) for a vacation in May
next year.
    This offer is available for individual or group bookings made on Rail
Europe's website www.raileurope.com and for bookings made by travel agents on
