Eurail New Pass Products

Eurail adds new ways to travel farther and cheaper in 2015.

Eurail introduces new products to its Eurail Pass portfolio. The Eurail Pass has new destinations, the Children Travel Free initiative, the first-class Youth Pass, the five in 10 days Global Pass and the Attica Pass, a One Country Pass designed with Greek island hopping in mind.

Four new countries join Eurail's Global Pass this year. The additions of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Poland and Serbia bring the total to 28 countries that can be explored with the rail pass. You can ride down the east Adriatic coast from Croatia to Montenegro, or stop in Poland on your way from Prague to Berlin.

With the new Children Travel Free initiative, children ages four to 11 ride for free with a family member or friend who is traveling on an Adult Eurail Pass. Up to two children per adult can travel free.

Traveling for the 12 to 25 age group is easier with the first-class Youth Pass, previously only available in second class. The first-class Youth Pass is on sale at a 20 percent discount from the adult cost.

Eurail adds a new pass category. Not everyone has unlimited vacation days to explore 28 countries. The five in 10 days Global Pass option gives five travel days anywhere within a 10-day span to visit non-bordering countries.

Another new option is the Attica Pass, a one country pass to the Greek islands by ferry. You can use Italy as a jumping-off point. It offers six ferry crossings within one month (the two international trips between Italy and Greece and four domestic trips for island hopping). It takes care of travelers with a rail/bus transfer from the international port of Patras to the domestic port of Piraeus.

How to Check for Bedbugs

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the United States is experiencing an increase in bedbug populations. Found in apartments and single-family homes, bedbugs are increasingly affecting restaurants, hotels, hospitals, schools and day care centers.

“Although bedbugs don’t usually require serious medical attention, they can cause a great deal of anxiety and restless nights,” said board-certified dermatologist Seemal R. Desai, MD, FAAD, who serves as clinical assistant professor of dermatology at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. “The most common sign of bedbugs is having bite marks on your body, which can sometimes turn into itchy welts.”

  1. To help find bedbugs before they find you (and your belongings), Dr. Desai recommends looking for the following signs near places where you sleep:
    • A sweet, musty odor: If you notice a sweet, musty odor in your hotel room, cruise ship cabin, or other sleeping area, there may be a heavy bedbug infestation. Bedbugs produce chemicals to help them communicate, although not everyone will notice the smell.

    • Specks of blood on bedding, mattresses, or upholstered furniture: Look carefully at blankets, sheets and mattress pads, and check the mattress and box spring. Are there specks of blood especially near the seams? If so, there could be a bedbug infestation. Also check for specks of blood on all upholstered furniture, including couches and headboards.

    • Exoskeletons: Bedbugs have an outer shell that they shed and leave behind. Do you see shell-like remains on the mattress, mattress pad or beneath couch cushions?

    • Tiny, blackish specks: If you see blackish specks on the bedding, mattress, or headboard, it could be bedbug excrement.

    • Eggs: After mating, female bedbugs lay white, oval eggs in cracks and crevices. Keep in mind that these will be small, as a bedbug is only about the size of an apple seed.

“Most people who get bedbugs do so while traveling, making it critical to keep an eye out for infestations,” said Dr. Desai. “If you do get bedbugs and have many bites or a bite that looks infected, see a board-certified dermatologist. A dermatologist can treat an infection and help relieve the itch.”

The “How to Check for Bedbugs” video is posted to the American Academy of Dermatology’s (Academy) website and the Academy’s YouTube channel.
