Redesigning Heritage: The Eurail Story
Eurail, the company behind the iconic Eurail and Interrail Passes, unveils a new visual identity today that pays tribute to its heritage while embracing what's to come for rail travel.
Eurail gives travellers from all over the world the opportunity to experience flexible, borderless train travel across Europe. With a Eurail or Interrail Pass (for non-European and European citizens respectively), travellers of all ages can use an expansive network of train and ferry connections to travel in and between up to 33 countries. The Eurail and Interrail Pass remains as relevant and popular today as when they were first introduced in 1959 and 1972.
Eurail's products have been built on decades of brand-name recognition - the Eurail Pass and Interrail Pass - Eurailing and Interrailing even becoming verbs in their own right. With the launch of the new design, the company strives to build visual recognition alongside product recognition to bolster the impact of their marketing activities and remain unique in a highly competitive travel landscape.
Importantly, Eurail now has a design that meets the current demands of marketing in a digital-first age allowing it to remain top of mind and relevant in the highly competitive European travel market. Since 2020, Eurail has offered a Mobile Pass alongside its traditional paper Pass and it is clearly a product Eurail audiences have an appetite for – given that now over 92% of Pass sales via Eurail.com and Interrail.eu are for a mobile Pass.
Sitting at an extraordinary crossroad between a strong heritage and a bright future of opportunity, Eurail's fresh new identity system is grounded in its brand values of curiosity, flexibility and openness allowing it to be recognised and cherished by a global audience.
Eurail and Interrail Passes are available via the Eurail.com and Interrail.eu web shops.

Go Shinta Mani Wild in the Cambodian Jungle with Bensley Collection Experiences
Adventure awaits at Shinta Mani Wild Bensley Collection where guests can enjoy a host of wild bespoke Bensley experiences that exemplify the camp's spirit of fun and adventure, promising authentic interactions with the incredible national parkland setting – all with a twist of Shinta Mani style. From the exhilarating moment of arrival - criss-crossing the forest and rapids via a 400m zip line - there is no such thing as a typical day at Bensley Collection – Shinta Mani Wild, a radical concept for an all-inclusive luxury tented camp nestled deep in Cambodia's South Cardamom National Park.
Guests that share Shinta Mani Wild's passion for protecting its precious natural environment might find themselves joining Wildlife Alliance rangers motorcycling through the forest on anti-poaching patrols and tracking previously unrecorded wildlife activity. Funded through the Shinta Mai Foundation, the camp's ranger station enables the non-profit Wildlife Alliance to carry out vital conservation work in the area, including protecting animals from poaching, removing snares and preventing illegal logging.
Guests can traverse the secret estuary backwaters on luxurious six-metre pontoon-style boats designed by Bill Bensley – so naturally they each have a fully-equipped bar and a top deck with daybed and sun loungers, dropping anchor wherever they please; whether to explore the mangroves by kayak or enjoy a truly wild BBQ of freshly caught crab prepared by their on-board Bensley Adventure Butler.
Discovering – and tasting – Cambodia's natural larder in the company of Khmer Executive Chef Tim Pheak is next on the agenda. When Shinta Mani Wild first opened a botanist discovered an entirely new species of the exotic flower growing at the camp, alongside fragrant wild vanilla. Guests can join Chef Tim on his daily foraging in the forest and learn among other things, their krasang from their mangosteen and their angkeadei from their Moringa.
