Press release - 21. 11. 2016
European parliament suggests the possibility of giving every European citiziens free InterRail ticket as a 18th birthday gift. With this ticket, he/she can travel throught the Europe for a whole month. This proposal came from the chairman of EPP Manfred Webe.
The proposal hasn´t been specified yet, but it already has a great support of members of European Parliament, all acros the political spectrum. Most of the politicians thinks that this could strenghten the motivation to learn more about the EU.
 
"I am saying yes, but free ticket should be distributed automatically to everyone, there should be more criteria than just be old enough. I suggest that we connect the ticket with some specific action, volunteering or some activity connected  with some specific project. A lot of young people wants to meet their coevels or gains some experiences."
