Can I get a Euro Rail Pass in France considering that I haven't applied for it in my native country i.e. India?

what does "applied for it in my native country" mean exactly? – jberger Dec 14 '12 at 22:34

Yes, but you may have less options and pay more:

Visit a Eurail Aid Office if you need help with your Eurail Pass, or if you arrive in Europe without having purchased a pass. Eurail Aid Offices are almost always located within large train stations; consult the list at // to find one in your country of origin or destination.

If you cannot find a Eurail Aid Office in your country, Eurail recommends asking for help at the international ticket window in a large train station.

The only Eurail passes available for purchase in Europe are: single-country passes to Romania, Portugal, Norway, Italy, Ireland, Hungary, Greece and Croatia; multiple-country passes for Hungary-Romania, Greece-Italy, Austria-Hungary, Croatia-Slovenia-Hungary or Austria-Croatia-Slovenia; Eurail Select Passes, and the Eurail Global Pass. has a list with offices where you can buy the pass but they say:

Online Eurail.Com prices are on average 20% lower than the prices charged at European train stations. Not all Eurail passes are for sale in Europe.

From my experience, you can. I'm from New Zealand, and bought my 10 day Eurail pass in Luxembourg last year. I used it in Luxembourg, Germany and Poland, but could have used it in any of the other Eurail zone countries.
