Packing List

Packing Guide

Packing List

We always say your interrail packing list should contain the same amount of stuff regardless of whether you’re going for one week or 10. A bold statement perhaps, but having done a lot of travelling, we’re talking from experience. Essentially, you should only pack the bare minimum – interrailing is the perfect time to make traveling light a habit! Don’t worry, if you need to wash something, every hostel has washing facilities, so you won’t be stuck for clean stuff. The only time you might need to change your list is if you’re heading somewhere with a very different climate from the rest of Europe (this packing list is not intended for Scandinavia in winter!).

Back to all practical help.
