EUROSTAR – PROBLEMS BOOKING SEAT RESERVATION USING INTERRAIL PASS !BASICALLY FORCED BY EUROSTAR TO BUYING A FULL PRICE TICKET DESPITE HAVING AN INTERRAIL PASS! AND THE TRAIN NOT BEING FULL!This is our first experience with Eurostar and Interrail Pass, and possibly our last! We are a family of 5 persons.Eurostar are not encouraging ‘environmentally sustainable travel’ with their very limited Interrail pass compulsory seat reservation availability.Eurostar are financially punishing families travelling on a limited budget with limited alternative travel options having already purchased an Interrail Pass.We recently purchased Interrail Passes in order to travel from Austria to the UK primarily to visit family. We wanted to try an alternative to flying and use this environmental and sustainable travel option.For various reasons we were not able to book or purchase earlier than we did (mid to late July).Pre purchased Interrail passes are required in order to complete a compulsory seat reserv
English (german below/Deutsch unten)I understand that you have 2 travel days to get out of country and to get back into your country (of residence). My Plan is to use IC40600 from Karlsruhe to Hamburg and then moving from Hamburg to Kobenhaven. The Train departs at 23.06 and apparently there for those 54 minutes are my travelday inside my country of residence. (and german trains are never punctual). Is it actually necessary that I book a later train? So wie ich es verstehe hat man 2 Reisetage um in und aus dem Wohnsitzland zu reisen. Ich würde gerne den IC40600 von Karlsruhe nach Hamburg nutzen und anschliessend von Hamburg nach Kopenhagen fahren. Der Zug fährt um 23.06 ab und dadurch wird anscheinend jener Tag bzw jene 54 min als dieser Reisetag angezeigt. Ist es tatsächlich notwendig jetzt ne Stunde später den zug zu nehmen? Ist ja ziemlich unlogisch gemacht. Dauernd alles flexibel reden aber 0-24 uhr einstellen statt ein 24 stündiges zeitfenster. Totaler quatsch.
I am a non-EU passport holder currently residing in Italy with a valid resident permit as a student.Can I avail eurail pass or not?
Hello, we are in Barcelona. They don‘t want to give us the discount for the ferry. They stay it is wrong on the website.
I posted before about using a Eurail ticket as a UK citizen but living (for many years) in Hong Kong. As such, I have a UK passport and a Hong Kong identity card (but not HK passport). I will carry some supporting documentation of residency in Hong Kong (can get something from employer, and maybe government document). Hopefully that will be enough - I tried to get clarification from eurail but have not heard anything.I have 2 more questions that I would appreciate some guidance on.Do I enter the HK identity card number as my ID for the pass, or my UK passport number? The HK identity card is not a travel document (just an internal HK document), but if I use the UK passport on a eurail ticket I guess this could cause problems?! In reality, how often / strictly are you asked for identity? I am not doing anything wrong (as a current HK resident I am actually doing the right thing getting Eurail I believe) but I don’t want to face hassle and stress every time my documentation is checked.

Is the Interrail Global Pass valid on Arriva's International train from Esbjerg (DK) via Tønder (border) to Niebüll (DE)?
Hi!For days I've been trying to figure out how I can get to Latvia from Lithuania.There's supposed to be a train going from Vilnius to Daugavpils but I can't find any timetable or reliable information with the interracial app, the Lithuanian railway website or the Latvian railway website.Can anybody help me and point me to a reliable source of information?Thx very much!
Hi, although I suspect I know the answer, I’m looking for confirmation really. I bought a 2-month Global Pass on 11 May this year. My understanding is that I have to activate it within 11 months of purchase. So if I want to use the full 2 months’ travel, the latest I can activate the Pass is 10 April next year, is that correct? And I can then use the full 2 months until an end date of 10 June?
Hi, my paper pass for Greek Islands is about to be late for the start of my trip. I am wondering if I can add my paper pass to the rail Planner app and use it instead of the paper pass?
I live in Finland and the only way for me to get out of here is to take a ferry to Tallinn, Stockholm or Travemunde and use that as my FIRST leg of the journey. I know discounted ferries do not count towards travel days, but it is required that is falls within the period of validity of the ticket. To choose the validity in the app, I have to make the 1st day of validity a travel day which is the problem here. I need to take a ferry first - which would not use a travel day - but to make the ticket valid I'd need to make it a travel day and so waste a travel day. Is there any solution to this?

Hi, Need suggestion - We have 2 days of Interrail Global Pass (without the inbound / outbound trips from Germany).How to best use the Interrail Pass for travelling to Paris starting from Germany Border like Brussels / Amsterdam?How to book seat only in Thalys Trains?Regards,Santanu
We are due to travel in Europe on a two month pass. We are breaking the trip up because of family issues so have booked a trip around Scandinavia to start. This involves both the in and out uk journeys. Started planning the second trip to Poland. We are flying to Krakow and using the train from there. Tried putting in a train from krakow to Budapest but although it says ‘saved to trip’ when you look on trips it is not there. we have two passes and it is added on one but refuses to be added on the other. any reason why it will not show on trips and how do I move this on.steve
Can we use 2 global passes in 1 deviceI will travel to Europe with my mother, I plan to purchase eurail global pass 1 month for 2 persons. I’m not sure that can we add 2 passes into 1 mobile phone ? 1 pass for my mom and 1 pass for me. i would like all the passes activated on my iPhone as a key device. It would be easy for me to create trip, make a seat reservation and create ticket.
Hi, Does anyone know if there’s an easy way to apply for compensation online for delayed journeys when traveling/booking with Deutsche Bahn? Or is completing the paper letter the only option? For general travel, rather than interrail specifically. Many thanks,Jordan
de qué forma puedo saber el número de kilometrajes recorrido en todos los trenes que utilice en mi viaje
Hey Interrail Community! So as the title says there has been a sudden death in near family. This has caused us to end our travels immediately and take a plane home. Since this is a force majeure, could there be a possibilty for a partial refund? We have only traveled for 10 days out of two months, and only used 3 travel days, and it dosen’t seem like we’ll be going again any time soon.
Hi i am having an issue:a bit of background:i and my dad were going to travel to edinburgh today from brussels on an interrail global pass. On the eurostar we had the right seat reservations etc. We arrive in London and our train to Edinburgh is canceled. We were not able to get to Edinburgh today and right now we stay overnight in York. Anyway, the guy of the LNER told us that our train to return from Edinburgh to London on the 8th of october will also be canceled, meaning we can’t get the eurostar back from london to brussels. I tried everything to find another train to london on sunday, and to change my booking from the eurostar to sunday. however here is the issue: because of the strikes all the eurostars on the 9th are also completely booked. The only trains that seemed free were the ones in the morning. so i changed my seat reservations of the eurostar to the train on the sunday on the 9th. ( and i booked a flixbus overnight from Edinburgh to london). however now i see i booked
