Can I buy a Pass for last-minute travel?
Yes, but it does depend how last-minute you plan to travel. With premium shipping your Pass can be delivered between 3 - 8 days. Find out the exact delivery time for the country where you want to have the Pass delivered in the checkout.
If you don't plan on using trains that require reservations, you only need to order a few days before your trip. If you will need to make some reservations, make sure to order earlier so you have enough time.
If you are buying very last minute, your best option is to order a mobile Pass, which you'll receive in your inbox right after purchasing. If you really want to travel with a paper Pass, you can always have your Pass delivered to your first destination in Europe as long as someone, like a hotel receptionist, knows to expect it and is available to sign for the packet.
