How are the 2 different? (or are they different at all?)

Which is better coverage and economy wise?

Thanks

Hey Arif!

This was from Angela in reply to my previous query :

If all else fails, this site helped a lot.

http://www.seat61.com/Railpass.htm#How%20do%20I%20find%20out%20what%20point-to-point%20fares%20would%20be..?

And that is the link to Inter-Rail.

Oh wait, I just found out
Inter-Rail passes are for European Residents and
Eurail passes for Overseas Travelers.

So no fretting over it now :)

Basically, Inter-rail is the train pass for people who live in Europe and is only available to European residents (plus a few other nationalities). Eurail is the pass for people who don't live in Europe and is sold to non-Europeans. There are some differences in how they work, but the essential distinction is in who can buy them. So if you live in India then you should buy a Eurail pass. Hope that helps.

Edit - curse my slow typing!
