Interrail turned 50 this year – so it’s a perfect time to share reminiscences about European train trips you’ve made using the pass. Tell us about your best and worst experiences – you may have shared a compartment with a particularly “interesting” group of people, started a relationship, met friends for life, had extraordinary “it’s a small world” moments, or ended up in the wrong station or even country. You may just want to share details of some amazing scenery and sights you’ve witnessed.
As the climate crisis compels more of us to use rail rather than flights, it’s likely that Interrail will only gain in popularity so please tip any great route hacks you’ve discovered or brilliant accommodation and places to hang out in while you were between trains. It doesn’t matter whether your tip is about an experience last week or one 50 years ago.
We would love to receive any photos of your Interrail trip but you must own the copyright.
Keep your tip to about 100 words
The best tip of the week, chosen by travel expert Tom Hall, will win a £200 voucher to stay at a Sawday’s property – the company has more than 3,000 in the UK and Europe. The best tips will appear on the Guardian Travel website, and maybe in the paper, too.
We’re sorry, but for legal reasons you must be a UK resident to enter this competition.
The competition closes on 5 July at 9am BST
