Every 18-year-old set to get free Interrailing passes, if they’re EU citizens

Every 18-year-old set to get free Interrailing passes, if they’re EU citizens | Olga's favourites | Scoop.it

The proposal aims to give young Europeans a “sense of belonging” to the continent and comes after the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker called for greater cooperation within the EU during his State of the Union speech in Strasbourg. ”
