We advocate for the positive impact travelling can have in the world. We are Eurail and we have all the stops to take our customers curiosity further. To be more precise: we’ve got over 30,000 destinations in Europe ready to be discovered with one Pass.  

If we are going to inspire the world, then we need the right people around us. We are proud of our culture at Eurail. We're a diverse team (with colleagues from more than 33 countries), made up of talented and passionate colleagues who have a real curiosity for the world around them. We like thinkers and do-ers, and people that ask a lot of questions.  

We strive to ensure that all of our people should have the chance to innovate, influence and grow. With our international and passionate team, we believe that creative thinking and diversity helps to improve our brands and ultimately create a unique experience for our customers, and one that they will want to repeat.  

We’re on the search for…  

You’ll inspire our travellers to experience real adventures and journey by train through Europe. In other words, you’ll contribute to an unforgettable trip, through the power of strong and engaging content.

Our travellers are people of all ages and backgrounds. We need you to help us attract and engage current and future travellers by creating and optimising content on our websites.

What you’ll be doing  

  • Writing new and inspiring travel content for our websites, Eurail.com and Interrail.eu, as well as our magazine
  • Creating layouts for new web pages
  • Finding and optimising images for the magazine and websites
  • Reviewing and rewriting current content
  • Researching travel destinations
  • Contributing to content ideas and brainstorms
  • Working in a cross-functional way to support different areas of the organisation

Please note: This is a practical internship, not a research internship.
