As part of a campaign that marks the European Year of Youth, 60,000 young Europeans will be issued free travel rail passes next year.
Anyone born between July 1st 2001 and December 31st 2003 can apply from midday on the 12th of October until the same time on the 26th of October.
The passes will allow free travel for up to 30 days between March 2022 and February 2023.
Participants will also be allowed to use alternative modes of transport such as coaches, ferries or exceptionally planes.
DiscoverEU said that this is to ensure that young people living in remote areas or on islands have a chance to take part.
Every EU member state will be allocated a number of travel passes based on its population, as a proportion of the overall population of the European Union.
