Recently I attended a European travel conference and the coolest app I walked away with was the Eurail/InterRail Rail Planner App. Any traveler heading to Europe and planning on using their trains should download it to their smartphone. It’s for both iPhone and Android, and it enables you to plan your European trip by train a lot more easily and cheaply.
The Rail Planner App was originally conceived for InterRail and Eurail Pass holders. Now, for free, it ensures that pass holders and other rail travelers have offline European timetable information at hand at all times so they can avoid expensive roaming costs. There are also city maps and country facts for all participating countries and it’s possible to find your closest railway station with the handy built-in augmented reality feature. Pass holders also have access to a list (per country) of extra benefits, including free and discounted boat and ferry trips, hotel and museum discounts.
For more European rail savings, here’s a list of Rail Europe specials and promotions.
