The EU Commission launched the latest DiscoverEU application round Tuesday, offering thousands of young people free train travel around Europe in its latest call under the DiscoverEU programme.

To get a travel pass, young people born between 1 July 2005 and 30 June 2006 will need to do a quiz with five questions about the EU and one additional question on the European Youth Portal. Successful applicants will receive a free rail pass to travel in Europe for up to 30 days between 1 July 2024 and 30 September 2025. The call will end 30 April at 12:00 CET.

The call is open to applicants from the European Union and countries associated to the Erasmus+ programme including Iceland, Liechtenstein, North Macedonia, Norway, Serbia and Turkey. Ticket holders can plan their own routes or be inspired by existing ones. For example, they can discover a route launched last year, which focuses on cities and places making the European Union ‘beautiful, sustainable and inclusive’ in line with the principles of the New European Bauhaus.

Participants receive not only the travel pass, but also a discount card with over 40,000 discount possibilities on public transport, culture, accommodation, food, sports and other services in eligible countries. In addition, Erasmus+ National Agencies organise pre-departure information meetings, and national agencies across all Erasmus+ countries prepare DiscoverEU Meet-ups, learning programmes lasting from one to three days.
