NEW INTERRAIL USER
Hi I'm new to interrail & wonder if you can help. I bought a 2 month continuous pass last May & need to activate it by 11 April. So I've booked a flight to Munich on 10th & train to augsburg that day to visit friends. I've not reserved train yet & assume I can change it - is that correct? And can I also change journey completely as long as I activate it bt 11 April? Thanks in advance. Carole
Copenhagen to Hamburg on 26 August
Hi, New to the forum, but have ‘done’ a couple of Interrail trips in the past couple of years. Am going to be travelling from Copenhagen to Hamburg and then onto Nuremberg on 26 August. As I understand, seat reservations are compulsory on the direct trains between Copenhagen and Hamburg in the summer months, and these are extremely popular with demand outstripping supply, so I’m keen to book the seats asap. I note seat reservations aren’t yet available on the DSB website. Bahn.de, however, is showing services for that day and is suggesting a change at Fredericia. The Interrail website says the same thing, adding that reservations are optional. Is this correct? I note looking at dates before 26 August trains are terminating at Hamburg Altona, so I’m wondering if there are engineering works that day that mean the direct trains cannot run? Thanks in advance for your help.
Global Pass - Start day within 11 months ? + stop inbetween?
Hey, i purchased as many of us a ticket during the promo offer: a 2 months global pass with mobile pass.Now i have two questions, i found similar threads but I want to be really sure I get things right and dont mess anything up so my pass is not valid. I found similar threads but sometimes I didnt know if I got the answer right.. My pass is valid until 10th of April (activation period), so if I understand right, it doesnt mean I have to start my travel until 10th? I just have to activate it before, means i have to decide for a travel date, so i could also start for example End of April (unless i activated and chose the travel date before 10th April)? Its very important to know for me so I dont get things wrong, because I would ideally start a bit later in April if its possible. If i e.g. start my travel at 25th April and then i travel for 3 weeks. And then i come back to germany and end my first trip. Am I allowed to use the pass nevertheless later if I start not in my home country? As

Train from Nice to Milan
Hello, I’m wondering if it is possible to take the night train from Nice to Milan in the summer? Like around 22, 23 or 24 of july? And if not, is it possible to take a train that doesn’t take like 2 days to get in Milan? This summer will be the first I will be travelling by train, so I actually don’t know anything about travelling by train, so if somebody could help, that would be great :) Kind regards, Xiang van der Boon
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.
Using Pass within own country without going to the border
So basically, I am a UK resident, and I managed to get a free 7 day pass with the scheme run by the EU. I have decided that I want to purchase an additional pass to get some more travel days, probably another 7 day pass.However, since I do a lot of rail travel within the UK, I have noticed that I can purchase a 10 day pass for about £60 more than the 7 day pass - since I will have 2 passes, and I am currently only using one outbound and one inbound journey on my pass, I will have an outbound and an inbound day of travel left over, so I was wondering if I could then use these two days to travel around the UK, most likely starting and ending these trips at the same station (which is most likely Reading or Oxford, which are arguably close to airports) but if necessary I could say use it on a very circuitous route from Reading to Heathrow and then purchase a ticket to get back to Reading Essentially, the question is does the outbound/inbound journey have to be a journey on the fastest rout
What time of day does my Month pass expire?
My app says my validity period is "15 Dec 2022 - 14 Jan 2023" Does that that mean I have until the midnight of the 15th of Jan to use my pass? I just want to make sure because I plan on taking a train the day of the 14th and don't want to have pay for the train when I can plan around it.
Stuck in Copenhagen - train cancelled
Hi, me and my friend are currently travelling with an interrail ticket from Bremen to Malmo C. Due to the øresund bridge being closed we are stuck in Copenhagen until at least midnight. Does anyone know if we are entitled to compensation for the hotel room we booked in Malmö or the hotel room we will need to book for tonight in Copenhagen?

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
Inbound and Outbound journeys in other country
Hi everyone !! Does someone know if it is compulsory to use our outbound/inbound journey from/to our country of residence or can we use them as a classic travel day to go in another country that isn't our country of residence ?For example, I won the 7 days within 1 month pass and I live in france. So I used an outbound journey to start my trip. I used 5 classic travel days + 1 outbound (at the beginning) but i don't want to go back in France yet. Is it possible for me to use the last travel day not as an inbound journey to France but as a classic travel day to go in another country ? Thank you and have a nice day :))Jules
Is Berlin to Zurich via OBB Nightjet included in the Eurail pass?
Hi I’m trying to plan my itinerary for my upcoming Europe trip this July/August. I originally was planning to go from Berlin > Fussen > Zurich but since I cannot find an easy way to get to Fussen, I was considering just going straight to Switzerland instead. I was hoping I could get the train from Berlin > Zurich via the Nightjet, but was just wondering if this is included in the Eurail pass as I cannot see it on this Eurail Railway map: https://www.eurail.com/en/plan-your-trip/railway-mapAny help would be appreciated. Thank you. :)

Greek Island Pass 30% Discount
Hey all, I recently purchased the Eurail Greek Island pass for 4 travel days using the Blue Star ferries. I am confused about the 30% discount. Once I have used my 4 travel days and need to book additional ferry trips, does the 30% discount apply to any ferry company that operates in Greece? Or does it only apply to the Attica group ferries (Blue star, Hellenic seaways and Superfast ferries)?Thanks in advance for the help!
Change travel day
We have global flexi passes. 4 days in 1 month. We will use 2 days to get to our destination and 1 day to get home. These are planned and saved in My Trip and added to My Pass (mobile) but not activated. We would like to use the remaining day for a trip out from our destination. We know the route of the journey but have not chosen the day. FAQ says Can I switch or cancel a travel day?You can cancel your travel day any time before the start of that day (00:00 CET). Go to My Pass, choose the travel day you want to cancel and tap ‘Cancel travel day’.But does not say how to change the travel day.
