I am thinking about using the current Interrail offer. Since I'm planning a vacation in Corsica in the summer anyway, I wanted to ask if you can also use Interrail there, for example from Bastia to Ajaccio? For any experience reports I would be extremely grateful, wish you a nice Sunday :-)

I can’t tell if the information is up to date, but an Interrail pass should give you 50% discount on journeys made with the local railway there.
Please contact the railway company to double check.
Found it here:
Trains are very sparse there and to satisfy the many calls for local independence the general-often on strike-society that runs trains, preferably as hi-speed TGV, in FR has withdrawn from there, its now CFC=Ch Fer de Corse. Perhaps you can get the discount-perhaps not- its probably so rare that those teenagers who work summertimejobs (most tickets are sold ON train) have never been instructed about it. AFAIK there USED to be a kind of touristy pass for 3 or 5 days for all trains there-check that.
The 50% discount on Corsica was already history when I visited the island more than 10 years ago.
They have their own pass: 7 consecutive days for 50€. Not bad, if you compare with the normal fares.
Did you already go to Corsica by interrail? I'm curious about your experience, because i also go in a couple of weeks.
