Requested "Budget" 7-day Global Eurail pass in first-class -- but later screens said "second-class"

I chose a 7-day Global Eurail Pass, which is called “Budget” (other options were Economy and Premium, the latter lasting a month). I selected the upgrade to first-class. When I got to the Add to Cart screen and later screens, the text said “second class”, though the price remained at the first-class price.

This is very confusing. I can’t tell what I am about to buy. Why is an option listed as first class only to change to second class?

I believe this is a bug. But in case I'd wait for an answer from @Mukhammad or @Camilo. (Eurail staff) before buying.

There is no such thing as a budget or premium Eurail pass. Which website did you visit? It could be scam.

The correct website is You only have a selection between 1st and 2nd class and it should look like this:


Thanks for your comment. I am on the Eurail site, and the Pass Finder tool does show the options I showed. I have been told to use a different path to get to the purchases, but this is a bug.

The pass finder tool doesn't work correctly so don't use it. It will most likely don't give you the correct number of travel days.
