The Eurail Austria Pass: The sound of music and…

Austria RailComfort. Relaxation. And it all comes together with the Eurail Austria Pass. It gives you extensive travel on the national rail network of Austria, with your choice of first or second class travel for 3, 4, 5, or 8 days of rail travel within a one-month period. This pass offers saverpass discounts for 2 or more traveling together and you can also decide whether you’d prefer your travel days to be consecutive or non-consecutive.

Austria ChurchIt’s no wonder that the majority of adventurers to Austria prefer to do so with an Austria Rail Pass. Breathtaking scenery notwithstanding, a train journey allows affordable flexibility and accessibility — while eliminating language barriers, local transit ticket counters, and high gas prices. And your rail pass has additional benefits to make your travel even more seamless, like transit on some InterCity Bus routes that may require reservations and a day of use on your pass, discounts on select ferries, hotels and audio city guides. See the cities and sites you’ve always imagined: like Vienna — one of Europe’s cultural capitals, located on the banks of the Danube. A romantic’s dream destination, Vienna was home to Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and Johann Strauss. And, cultural connoisseurs won’t want to miss Museums Quartier, one of the largest cultural complexes in the world. No trip to Austria is complete without a stop in Salzburg, a city of incomparable architectural beauty. (Did we mention it was also where “The Sound of Music” was filmed?)

You know, it’s true what they say…those hills are alive. But the breathtaking scenery of Austria? It will remind you that you are too. The Eurail Austria pass.

Attention all educators do you want to travel for free

Kids1Experience is a great teacher. It takes standing in the middle of the Colosseum to truly appreciate the significance of Roman times. You need to be able to run your hand across the names engraved on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington DC to comprehend the loss. Travel has the power to open young minds, unlock possibilities, and unveil understanding where the classroom just can’t. On Student Discoveries travel programs, students pay attention, ask more questions, and actually learn more. From the sub-culture of New York City’s Chinatown to Italy’s world-changing architecture, students’ minds opens further when they’re filled with the sights and sounds of important places around the world. And what they learn on the streets of Boston or in Tower of London won’t just be filed away for a pop quiz, but for something much more important—life itself.

It’s never too early to start planning your student trip and there has never been a better time to book student group travel with Student Discoveries. For teachers, when 10 students travel on a trip you travel for free and teachers receive a single room at no additional cost.
