Unable to add required trip to the pass
Hello, We are in the middle of our trip but unable to generate tickets on the pass for our journey tomorrow morning. We’re a bit panicked and hope the forum can help. We have successfully generated four journey tickets already without any problems. We’re hoping the issue is because we are trying to generate the ticket the night before rather than just before the train. We could see the journey on the planner and it was saved to Mytrips but not being added on to our passes to show tickets. Any ideas from the forum as to why this is happening, would be very helpful as we don’t want to spend 85 euros to buy tickets to go from Tirano to Luzern tomorrow morning. We eagerly await your response. Many thanks, Rita & Shirley
No seat available after buying seat reservation
Hiya, first time eurail user here. I reserved two seats from Paris to Lyon. The tickets showed a cart number and a seat number. However when we got on the train (which was very rushed as it was late and there was no staff to help) there was no cart number which matched the ticket. We hopped on one of the carts and tried to at least walk through and find our seat number but our seat didn’t exist (we were seats 113 and 114 and the numbers on the train went straight from 112 to 115. We ended up just sitting on the floor of the stairs. Any idea how this happened?? As I was under the impression buying a seat reservation guaranteed you a seat on the train. Thanks!!Emily
Travelling during strikes/refunds
Hi folks- Probably a common thread at the moment, but I am travelling next wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th through France. Im meant to be heading into Paris on the Eurostar at 16:22 getting in at 19:57 on wednesday 5th,and Im then meant to be heading on the high speed train from Paris Gare du Lyon to Zurich on Thursday at 07:15. Is it possible to predict whether these routes will be affected? If not and it ends up being wiser to get alternative transport through France, can I get refund on the reservation costs of these journeys? If so, how do i go about doing that? Thanks in advance. Peter
Dutch trajectory with NS Flex Dal Vrij
I thought I figured it all out… I am travelling with my Interrail Global Pass (mobile) for the first time. My first journey is from Amsterdam to Frankfurt, with ICE 123. In the Netherlands, I have a NS Flex Dal Vrij subscription, which should allow me to travel for free on the Dutch part of the trajectory. I read everything I could find about this, on this forum and on the NS website. So what I did: I added a trip to my pass, manually added a journey to my trip with the ICE 123, starting at Emmerich(Gr), ending in Frankfurt. I brought my NS card but did not check in in Amsterdam. This is how I understand I should do this.However, the NS personnel on the train made me pay a ticket from Amsterdam to Emmerich(Gr), maintaining that I could only travel on my NS Flex subscription without checking in if I had a ticket from Amsterdam to the border station as well. This cost me 61 Euro (1st class). They did not give me a 50 euro fine.Were they right? If so, how could I do this in the future, wi
Is Eurail Pass no longer valid on some Polish trains
Specifically I’m looking at the Katowice to Vienna (Wien) international route. This is one of the routes that is subject to “Oferta Super Promo International” - there are PDFs available that show this pricing applies to most, if not all international rail routes into Poland. It seems this was started in early 2022.Normally on the PKP/Intercity booking site https://www.intercity.pl/en/ , when booking a domestic train you can select a Eurail “reservation only” from the Discount/reservation type dropdown list on the selected train. No problems, it works as far as I’m aware.If I select almost any train a few days ahead from Katowice to Wien Hbf on the PKP/Intercity website, there is no option to select Eurail, I just get the message that it’s a special offer with a tick-box that cannot be deselected. I need to reserve two months ahead and cannot see any way around this.Polrail say they can reserve a seat, but their pricing to buy a full ticket on this route bears no relation to the PKP pub
Travelling outside of the Euro area
Hi everyone!Coming from France, I’m planning a trip to Northern Europe where most of the countries I crave to visit are not part of the Euro area (Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Ireland and the UK).Do you have any feedback or past experience(s) when it comes to the best - thus cheapest - option to ‘decrease’ commission fees and other monetary fees?Thanks in advance,Eve
Eurostar reservation change
I live in the UK. I have a global pass to start with Eurostar trip from London to Brussels in 2 weeks. I booked seat reservations through Interrail app. I want to change the date by two days. Can I do that without charge still using my first free trip leaving the UK? How do I do that?
Puzzle about choice of pass
Hello, while presenting my journey from Utrecht NL to Lissabon Portugal, searching for the best Interrail Pass, a 1 country 3 days pass (1 month) was recommended for 89 euro. I'm not traveling in 1 country, but through 5 countries (including NL). Can someone clarify this for me, please?
End of line in Germany - kicked off at Koln Hbf
Hello, Our journey in the app and on our pass was from Amsterdam Centraal to Mainz Hbf. Our first train showed it taking us to Frankfurt where we'd have to transfer for the last leg of our journey. However, we got to Koln Hbf and were told it was the end of the line. There was a group behind us that were also under the impression that we could stay on. They asked the worker and he said we have to get off, we have to listen to the announcements, and yelled at all of us for missing the 3 announcements telling us to get off. He said to go to platform 10. We rushed over there but there was no departing train that matched anything in our app. We looked for trains heading to Frankfurt or Mainz and there was only one and it was not on platform 10. It had already departed by the time we found it. We looked at 3 different information boards and a separate app for train travel and we could not find the original information we had in the rail planner. We ended up getting tickets to a train an hou
I am new to this game and I don’t even know what tags are. I have bought a five day pass and I want to travel to Brindisi in Italy in February I would like to take two days in daylight to see the scenery and one week later the same coming back. I hope to travel from Swansea in South Wales. Is this possible. I am on the verge of starting to get old 80 but I am determined to make it. I think it will be easier for me to book the individual trains at the stations. Does anyone think this is possible.? You have my kind regards, David shaw.
Lost Journeys in app
I added all my journeys into the app in My Trip a couple of weeks ago. When I went to check today all the journeys had disappeared? So frustrating and not sure how to retrieve them without adding them all again. Any ideas???Also when I look at the trains for Switzerland they are all coming up as “Not in Pass network”??? I have checked the app version and it updated 3 days ago. Does this mean I can no longer use the pass in Switzerland. Leaving in a few days and this is stressing me out.
Is Interrail being 17 years old possible?
Hi guys!To put you in context, I'm turning 18 this year and I've decided to do the Interrail as an end-of-school trip for about a month this summer (2023). I was planning to do it with a friend who will turn 18 in April, so he shouldn't have a problem traveling because by the time summer comes he will already be an adult. I am still 17 years old, and my birthday is in August, although I had planned to do the Interrail in June or July. Am I going to have any problem when traveling or do you recommend me to do it in August or September when I am already 18 years old?I would prefer to do it in June or July even though I'm 17 but I don't know if I'm going to have a problem. Has anyone done it like this? Many thanks!!
Not possible to book seat reservations on ICE to NL
Hello,In the period that a seat reservation is mandatory for travel on ICE to and from the Netherlands I am not able to make a seat reservation through bahn.de and obb. This seems like a technical fault, since I am able to book a regular ticket including a seat reservation for the same journeys. This problem holds for all ICE services to and from the Netherlands from 17 June to mid August. I am also able to make seat reservations before and after the period that a reservation is mandatory, so it seems like a specific error during the period that seat reservations are mandatory.Hopefully, it is soon possible to make seat reservations only for journeys on ICE to and from Amsterdam this summer.Thank you in advance,
No train connection between Athens - Patras ?
Hi:) I’m travelling from Athen to Bari by train and ferry in June. My ferry departs from Patras to Bari and so i searched for train/bus connections from athen to patras. i found out that there is no direct train connections due to constructions, but that i can take a train from athen to kiato and there change into a bus that replaces the train until patras. but i can’t find any sort of timetable for the trains and busses, i looked in the interrail app, the trainose website and the hellenic train websites: they all say that there is no connection available on the selected date. i travel on june 8th but i also tried different dates to verify if there’s a connection at all and it just doesn’ show...is it too early to book the train and the timetables are not up yet? or is there just no connection at all at the moment, or there is but it’s just not on the website yet? i’m really confused snd a bit stressed as i need to book the ferry asap and need to know if i even can travel from athens t
London to Paris to Belgium to Amsterdam and back to London
I'm American, currently in London and booked a hotel for Paris from Dec. 23 - Dec 26..Looking.at regular Eurostar the prices were super expensive. (Last minute trip) I aslo see it doesn't run on the 26th either when mymhotel stay ends. I also had a trip planned to go to Amsterdam Dec 28- Jan 2, so I thought instead of going back to London , I'd go to Belgium in between and book a hotel for the 26th and 27th then head over to Amsterdam.I belive I could get a eurail flexi pass 1month 5 ride ticket that would handle each stop. I am hoping the 'no trains' on 26th is only for Eurostar and I can find some other train to get to Belgium. Would I need reservations into and out of France only(plus 30 fee on each)? Let me know if this the best/ cheapest way to go or if there's a better route. Thanks in advance.
