Rail Europe's GLBT "Be Fabulous" Promotion Cuts Costs This Summer

By July 5, 2011

Follow me on:

Amsterdam's canalsThe long-respected North American sales outlet for rail tickets and passes around Europe, Rail Europe has created a "Be Fabulous in Four Gay-Friendly Countries" promotion - just buy any rail pass that includes travel in Denmark, the Netherlands, Germany, or Switzerland by the end of July and you'll receive a 10% discount (use the promo code FABFOUR).

Rail Europe sells a wide range of Eurail Passes that cover one or more of these countries, and many of them cover neighboring nations as well, so this is a terrific way to see several gay-popular European cities this summer - and, of course, you can use your pass well into the future.

Denmark and the Netherlands are especially notable destinations for gay travelers in August, as from August 4 through August 7, Amsterdam Gay Pride - complete with its colorful Canal Boat Parade - draws more than a half-million celebrants. Later in the month, Copenhagen Gay Pride presents four days of parties, parades, and GLBT arts and cultural programming from August 17 through 21.

These are just a few of the many Gay Pride festivals taking place in cities that you can reach using these discounted Eurail passes over the coming months - Munich, Sitges, Nice, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Stockholm, Mannheim, and Prague are among the others. Take a look at my July Gay Pride Worldwide Calendar and August Gay Pride Worldwide Calendar for dates and links to these other festivals.
