Application Deadline: Thursday 16 May 2019 12:00 (CET)

DiscoverEU is an initiative of the European Union giving you the opportunity to travel around Europe. By travelling mainly by rail (there are exceptions to allow those living on islands or in remote areas to take part), you will discover Europe’s stunning landscapes and its endless variety of cities and towns. This journey will also give you the chance to meet like-minded travellers, become more independent and confident as well as explore your EU identity. Young people can apply during the two application rounds taking place each year and the European Union awards the selected ones with a travel pass.  

lmost 30 000 young people were awarded a travel pass in 2018. Another round will take place from 2 May 2019 at 12:00 (CEST) to 16 May 2019 at 12:00 (CEST). An ‘Apply Now’ button will appear on this page on D-Day!

To be eligible, you need to be born between 2 July 2000 (included) and 1 July 2001 (included), have the nationality of one of the Member States of the European Union at the time of the award decision, and fill in the correct ID or passport number on the online application form.All you have to do is to participate in a quiz and answer a subsidiary question. If you are selected, you can travel for a period of minimum 1 day and up to 30 days between 1 August 2019 and 31 January 2020. Why not seize this chance to experience freedom of movement, better understand Europe’s diversity, enjoy its cultural richness, make new friends and ultimately, discover yourself?

Note that if you have a disability or a health problem that makes your trip challenging, we have special conditions to help you take part in DiscoverEU.

Travelling with Friend

Yes you can! It really is up to you. You can go solo or bring your friends along. In fact, you can add up to 4 friends to your group.

You can also organise meet-ups and combine travel plans with other DiscoverEU travellers! The DiscoverEU Facebook Group is a good platform to do this. Join the Group now to chat with other participants.

Responsibility

By becoming a DiscoverEU Ambassador, you are invited to report back on your travel experiences through social media tools like Instagram, Facebook or Twitter using #DiscoverEU. You could even give a presentation at your school or local community. Moreover, you could participate in the #DiscoverEU photo/video #Competition and win great prizes.
