I ordered our passes by 7 June 2022.
Eurail shows payment as received, but hasn’t yet sent the passes by mail. It claims we will receive these by 16 July 2022.
We are in Australia and depart for overseas towards the end of September 2022.
With previous Eurail Golbal Passes years ago, I had always bought a paper pass locally from a Eurail-affiliated travel agent, but the only one in Melbourne I tracked down said it only sells mobile passes (at a substantial added cost to the price the Eurail site charges.
We don’t want mobile passes as I can’t rely on smartphones, and as a bonus I enjoy filling in the record of travel and posting it to Eurail once back in Australia.
I realise the Eurail office is likely to be very busy (and perhaps is having difficulty obtaining sufficient staff) but there’s not even a Eurail Aid office in London, UK, Paris or France yet the UK is where we commence our travel.
It’s impossible to book seats on compulsory reserved seat trains until we have the paper Pass numbers.
While Australia has a small population of only 26 million, per capita we are one of the highest purchasers of Eurail passes, zooming past Americans with their 15x higher number of residents.
How many weeks or days from receipt of an order and payment is Eurail typically mailing paper Eurail (and Interrail!) Passes?
