Hey guys,

 

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 :-)

 

Warm regards
René

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.

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for local independence the general-often on strike-society that runs trains, preferably as hi-speed TGV, in FR has withdrawn from there, its now CFC=Ch Fer de Corse.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.

Hi Rene, 

Did you already go to Corsica by interrail? I'm curious about your experience, because i also go in a couple of weeks. 

Greetings, 

Daphne
