I’m booking trains in the UK and I carefully planned out what pass I wanted to get (if I needed a pass, if I wanted to do BritPass or Eurail), decided on the Eurail pass, and looked on the app to find which trains I wanted. I just bought my pass and went to reserve my seats, but the trains that it showed me are “not available on eurail.com” and it tells me to book it through another website. It brought me to acprail, and I was able to find the same train for a small fee, but that site says I need a pass for the train, but I think it means a BritRail pass. Is this the case, or will my Eurail pass work? (If not, then why did Eurail show the train that I’d have to buy a pass from another company to ride??) I’m stressed and confused about this, does anyone know what the deal is? It’s happening for both the trains I wanted to book.
Hi allI’ve just booked the following journey. I selected compartment with 4 beds and assumed this would be a 4-berth couchette. But when I got the tickets, it shows seats 21-24. My understanding is that the numbering for a 4-berth would be 21/22/25/26…Any thoughts? Anyone have an up to date nightjet seating plan?Thanks

Hi we have tickets booked on the Eurail site for the above trip for 9 th June at 11.30 and the train number is AVE2112, it is not showing on the site now but it shows one at 12.10 with the same train number have they just adjusted the leaving time, also can we only reserve seats at a station or can we do it online or over the phone?
Hello everybody, I would like to book Zurich-Rome (5th of June). I see many options (I would like to do only 1 change in Milan) but I can’t book it through DB-Bahn or OBB or Trenitalia. I just don’t have the options available on these companies.This means that my only options to book it is the Eurorail website? Until now I traveled almost everywhere in Europe and I never done with Eurorail reservations system, avoiding fee and higher prices for each reservation(for example, in Spain it was displayed 25 euros for first class, at the Renfe office just 13 euros).Regards,Marco
Today my trip was suddenly no longer connected too my trip with name XEurope-CK. I went to my pass to connect it again to this trip but apparently I did something wrong as it connected to the standard ‘Mytrip’. Does anyone know how I can disconnect from this wrong ‘Mytrip’ so I can reconnect again to the proper XEurope-CK?As I am already traveling for 2 months I do not want to start a new trip.Thanks for helping out.Kind regards,Karel
We bought 1st class tickets. We booked a travel day on our 7 days pass and then got bumped from train due to not making/paying extra for seat reservations. Agent said train was completely reserved. We then couldn’t get a train to our destination for 2 days so we had to fly. How can we get our travel day back?
HiThis summer (July 25) I would like to travel from budapest to Brasov. I would like to take the train from 09:10 to 22:46However, when I want to reserve a seat via the interrail reservation site, it says that reservation is not possible. Through the interrail site, I don't see this train listed. But if I look a week earlier or a week later it is listed.If I look on the Hungarian booking site I see the train direct is listed. Is the direct train going or are there works in progress?Is it possible to buy the same train in advance in another way, since booking via the interrail site does not work (it says Prices unavailable) and via the Hungarian train company it is not possible to buy an interrail seat reservation.
Hi guys,This is my first time planning a trip in Europe. I am considering buying a Global Pass for 3 people (1 Youth, 2 Adult). Below is my planned schedule (pretty detailed, i guess):12/8: Frankfurt - Mannheim 15/8: Mannheim - Frankfurt - Paris 18/8: Paris - Zurich 19/8: Zurich - Interlaken 20/8: Interlaken - Brig 21/8: Brig - Milan - Pisa 22/8: Pisa - Rome 24/8: Rome - Venice 25/8: Venice - Munchen 26/8: Munchen - Berlin 28/8: Berlin - Stralsund 31/8: Stralsund - MannheimAccording to this schedule, is 5-day pass appropriate? How I should use it? How many days does it take from the pass if I took train overnight?For some long train, can I use ICE or other high-speed train for faster travel?Especially, how is this pass in Switzerland? (Since I find tickets there are significantly expensive)And can I use it on days travelling inside a city?I am new to this. Hope I could receive help from you guys and this is clear enough.Thanks in advance.
Hi everyone,I’ve got a problem to choose the pass for my travel (it’s my first time trying this kind of travel). I’m planning on travelling with a friend, and the trip would be the following : first, we would take a night train from Marseille to Vienna (with correspondences) the night of the 15th/16th July.After, we would take a night train from Vienna to Berlin (a direct) the night of the 18th/19th July.After, we would take a night train from Berlin to Coppenhaggen (with correspondences) the night of the 21th/22th July.Finally, we would take a night train from Coppenhaggen to Marseille (with correspondence) the night of the 25th/26th July.But we don't know which pass to take ?Sometimes, the website told us it's the 4-days Global pass a month, on other times, the 5-days Global pass a month. So, which one should we take ?Also, does this pass work when we are planning to take only night trains, sometimes with correspondences ? Thanks you for your help and advices :)Have a good trip every
