Have you heard about the inter rail opportunity?

The European Commission is offering up to 12,000 18-year-olds a free month of Interrail travel across the continent. With this free Interrail pass, 18-year-olds can travel through 30 European countries including the UK, France, Italy, Spain, Germany and Greece for a whole month.

18-year-olds from Malta will also have their cost of another means of transport (such as ferry) needed to join the next connected Member State covered.

I want to help as many 18-year-olds from Malta as possible to travel around Europe for free next year.

Fill in the form below and we’ll send you more details on this opportunity!
