Hello,I have a Eurail pass and need to make required seat reservations for trains between Nimes and Girona in June and between Stuttgart and Paris in July. I have found out from the planner app and several other sources that seat reservations are only available 90 days in advance, so it’s too early right now. What puzzles me is that if I go to any websire that sells train tickets (e.g., Trainline or SNCF-connect), I can already buy these tickets with the seat reservation included. Does anyone know why this is the case or how this makes sense? And what are my chances of still finding available seats if anyone can buy the seats already now when they pay point-to-point?Thanks!
I have just purchase my global pass today and I am trying to make a reservation. Why would it show that the train that I am booking requires a seat reservation but at the same time does not engage so that I can actually reserve a seat. If the train is fully booked, I would hope that it would tell me so but it does not. The seat reservation is for 3 months from today.
HI. I have read and known that apparently you can’t reserve seats from the actual Eurail planner app(which is frustrating). We will be traveling in April(after Holy Week) from Milan to Rome, hence, I wanted to reserve seats ahead of time. What is the best site to do this for other trips as well or countries rather(Amsterdam, Paris, London, Brussels, Switzerland from Tirano). Thank you for your response.
If the train that I want to add into my trip say “ seat reservations recommended “Must I buy the seat reservation?or it is no problem if I don’t buy this
Come posso pagare dall’app il posto quando è richiesto?
I ordered my daughters and my passes on one order, but we each have added our own pass on our own device. I am doing all the bookings however, so if I duplicate my trip and add her pass number to the second trip on my device - will the bookings then show up on her phone so she can access her ticket?I would prefer us to have tickets and access on our own devices in case one of us loses or damages our phone.
Hello, I tried to reserve a seat this morning for an extra fee but it didn't work on the website. Indeed, my Italy trip with all my trains did not appear anymore, nor the travelers participating in the trip (me). I tried to connect with my pass number at least 5 times and it didn't appear each time.So I had to pay a new train ticket on the French SNCF Connect application in 1st class at 235,30€ (almost the full price of the pass) since I couldn't book other trains to Paris from Interrail.I don’t know what to do as I don’t find any number to call in Interrail. thanks for your advice.
First of all - thanks to all on the forum for the clarifications provided over the last few days. You have eased my path significantly.What I think I’ve realised is that the term trip as used in the Interrail context seems to be misleading. Trip as used in the app is a collection of potential moves from point A to point B, point B to point C, but also point B to points D, E, F, G & H - it’s like a pick list or a wish list. You can define any number of journeys in a trip, and you can travel on some or all of them. So it’s not actually a trip. Your actual trip may go A-B-C-H, or maybe A-B-C-E.A trip in Interrail terms is only a list of possible travel legs which may or may not be taken.A trip in ordinary usage is an actual journey - “I’m planning a trip from Edinburgh(A) to Nice(D), via London(B) and Paris(C).” or “I took a trip from Edinburgh(A) to Milan(H), via London(B) and Paris(C). I went to Milan instead of Nice because the weather was bad in Nice on the day.”It may seem
Hi,I do know how to create a trip, save journeys to it and add te journey to my pass. Bit I miss some other information on this item. I plan to buy a 6 travel day for Switserland. Does this mean that I make 6 trips in total, one for each day? Thus implicating that one trip corresponds to one travel date and I can add as many train journeys to that particular trip as I want to. probably obvious but I want to make sure prior to buying the card.Thanks,Threes
Hi there,I booked 3 month passes for two people last year when they were discounted for the Interrail anniversary and am now planning on using it.I’m very, very confused though. I created a trip in the web application at interrail.eu (called “My interrail trip”) and added myself and another person to it. But I don’t see this on the phone app, even though the pass has been added and activated on the phone.I created a trip (“Summer”) on my phone app and added myself and the other person as travelers there, but the other person can’t see the trip details on their phone and I can’t see it on the web app even though I created it.All I’m trying to do is start our 3 months on a known day and where necessary reserve seats for various journeys over the 3 month period. I gather from other posts that reserving through this site can be a bit hit and miss and will be using some train operators sites directly for that. What is the minimum I need to do in order to make sure that when we turn up o
Following my question asking why the Railplanner app tells you you need to buy a reservation at a cost of €6 for UK train travel I received the following answer: Trains in UK (apart from sleepers and Eurostar) do not require any reservations. You can just yous the pass and sit on unreserved seats just as you would with any ordinary unreserved ticket. All you need do is fill in the trains you use on your pass and you are free to board. If you wish you can get free reservations at ticket offices by showing your pass. By making an account on the GWR.com website you can also use their free seat reservation tool.My question again is: In that case, WHY does the app suggest a fee is payable?
Greeting,We are trying to reserve seats from Salerno to Rome on the OBB account. However, they keep saying no tickets is available even though it is recommended to reserve seats 2 months in advance. What should we do?
Do you have any recommendations for Greek Islands to visit?
My 20 year old daughter and I will be travelling together. I have bought the passes on the same order but not sure if its best to have both passes on my phone to make bookings and reservations or we have our pass on our own devices, If I book them together on my device, does she also need to have the app on her phone? My understanding is she can have her pass on her phone, I can then add her to make the booking. Can I do this in the app or only on the website?? It’s so confusing!
