2.2 The Agreement is concluded at the moment when the Customer accepts the offer from Eurail.com electronically and meets the associated conditions set by Eurail.com.

2.3 Eurail.com will acknowledge receipt of the aforementioned acceptance by email. If it does not, the Agreement may be dissolved at any time.
