Specifique question about a journey in your home country (just to be sure)

I am a german citizen traveling for a while in France now. Last minute I realise I need to go home for some days. To travel over Switzerland back to France. I am think of buying the interrail pass 4 travel days in a month. But since Germany is my home Country and I am only allowed to travel in and out once, I wonder if I am allowed to use my first journey from France as my “travel back” and my second journey to Switzerland as my “travel out”?

Thanks for all help

Hi Sina,

yes, that is alright. You can make first the inbound and then the outbound journey… See also here: 

We want our Passes to be as flexible as our travellers, so if you're travelling with an Interrail Global Pass, you can now use it to travel in your country of residence during one outbound journey and one inbound journey that occur during travel days at any point in your trip


Keep in mind, that this trips count also as a travel day!
