Airport transport included in global pass

According to this web page (, some connections from airport to city center and vice versa are included in the interrail global pass. Does using these connections count as a travel day? We are flying from our homecountry to our first destination, and staying there for a few days before starting our interrail. Do we have to pay for train from airport to city center, if we don't want to "waste" our travel day in that? 


​​​Also, we are flying back home from London, but we are going to stay there for a few days before our flight. Can we use our rail pass there to connect from city center to Heathrow, even tho we have already used our travel days (but we still have time left in our pass)?

As soon as you take a train it counts as a travel day.

For a short journey such as Heathrow - London, it is not good value to use a pass day. In general a ticket city center - airport costs way less than a pass day.

In London it's best to use an Oyster card or a contactless card

The only time where it might be good value is if you live far from the airport and take the train to there.
