Help with train travel in Switzerland
I am flying into Zurich Switzerland. From there I am taking a train to Liechtenstein for a day, then to Lauterbrunnen and onto Murren where I will be for 4 days, back to Zurich, then Bruges, Brussels and Amsterdam. I am trying to decide if a 7 day Eurail pass would be best or a Swiss Half price pass and then point to point tickets for the rest of the train rides. Any help is greatly appreciated.
UK Access to platform / gates
Hello community,We currently are planning to travel to the UK in summer. When going by train on regular tickets over there I remember there are machines for the access to the platforms. The regular ticket usually has got to be put into a slot and the turnstile would open so one can get to the platform.How does that work with the EURAIL Global Pass?Thanks Frank
Eurostar cancel and refund
My train from Paris to London was cancelled, I can’t change the ticket because I can’t travel the days before, and so I have to cancel my hole trip to London…Refunding for Paris-London was possible, as the train was cancelled (the reservation was made with SNCB and no problem).So, what about the way back, London-Lille ? Yes, the train is not cancelled, but… The reservation was made with eurail, which says “No refund”. Does anybody has any idea for how to get refund ?
My Journey and My Trip have disappeared off my rail planner app
I added a journey and my trip to my rail planner app on Iphone 11. It still shows both of our passes. I duplicated information for my husband and also says we have booked the four days of travel but all information pertaining to my journey and my trip has dropped off and disappeared. I have seat reservations already for the trips that said I required reservations but it does not list my journey or my trip for either of us. This is really distressful can anyone help me. nz
Is Interrail valid in Bern?
Hello. In January I will spend a week in Bern, and I booked a hotel in the outskirts of the city in Schüpfen, unfortunately right outside the city limits so I won't be eligible for the free Bern Ticket for people staying in Bern.Considering very expensive train travel in Switzerland (more than twice as expensive as here in Sweden!) I intend to buy the Switzerland Interrail pass as I will do lots of day trips by train and I also need to get both from Geneva Airport to Bern and back again by train. Does anyone here know if this pass includes free travel on the S-Trains between Schüpfen and Bern?
Gothenburg train station to Gothenburg ferry port Stena Lines

Using mobile app: 2 questions
Hi, my wife and I will be Eurailing in Germany, Italy, and Switzerland in mid-May. From what I read, I don’t trust the Eurail mobile site/app to make seat reservations. Can that be done by, say, the German Rail site and do I need to input that info into the mobile pass? I don’t plan on activating the pass until we get to Frankfurt airport. Secondly, I won’t have a SIM card for the first couple of days so how can a conductor read a QR code. I’m beginning to regret buying the mobile version. Scott
Train connections east to Sofia
Hi, I need to get to SOFIA from France, Italy or Switzerland this autumn. What is the present situation please?Despite my 86 years of age I am willing to go by the long route if necessary. I travel Interrail to avoid flying and have not done so for the past five years.I saw the destruction of the train lines at the historic Belgrade main station a couple of years ago and I was and am shocked.
tips for 8 days off?
I have an abundant week available in September, I travel alone. I recently met the Interrail ticket, but I'm undecided if it's worth it.Perhaps it is better to choose a city as a starting point and visit the nearby towns/cities in the day?Obviously without spending a fortuneWhat do you think about it? A thousand thanks
How can I choose the seat from Barcelona to Paris?
I booked through the Eurail app and was assigned a random seat in first class. I wrote to SNFC on Facebook and they told me that I have to return it and buy another one but when I do that I get another random seat again.Is there no chance in first class to choose the seat?

Seat reservation TGV to Belgium. SNCF does not list non-French destinations.
I have booked a ticket in the eurail app for Lille (France) to Brussels (Belgium).The app says I need a seat reservation, but I am not able to make a seat reservation with a destination outside of france. You have to use the SNCF (French nat. train service) web site or app for the TGV trains, however this app won’t let you reserve seats for trains that exit France.
Seat reservations - France
Hi, planning my first long rail journey in a long time: from Oslo to Bilbao with stop in Munich. Up to Munich everything looks fine, but from there it gets messy. First I thought of travelling via Switzerland and Lyon to Bordeaux - Hendaya and so on, but seat reservations (from 30 EUR) at some segments kind of scared med off. So I looked into the itinerary via Paris, but I am finding it hard to find out prices for seat reservations there too. Usually DB is quite good for that, but it’s not possible to make a reservation on all trains. Does it mean that there are no seats for people holding an Interrail ticket? (there are otherwise seats available, I checked). And I find no information at all at SNCF website. Any ideas of what I may expect? I am travelling from roughly the 12 of december for one month. Thanks!
Swiss pass and Eurail Global Pass
Hi I have a couple of questions and would be grateful for any advice: On 9 May I will be travelling around Italy - Cinque Terre 5 days, Milan to Dolomites and back then crossing from Milan into Switzerland. On 29 May, I am training from Milan to Lucerne for one night (30th May). I will go up to Mt Pilatus. Bern for 3 nights (31,1,2 June), walking, visiting museums. I intend training on one of my Bern base days, to Grindelwald to do Junfraujoch, then back to Bern. I will then train out of Switzerland (3 June) to Aix en Provence in France. I will stay in France until 27 June (but for 12 days I will be doing a course and not using any trains) - so my questions are: 1. is this cost effective to purchase a Swiss pass for the above Switzerland section, as I will be holding a Eurail pass during this time. 2. When catching a train from Milan to Lucerne, is this a Eurail pass day, or a Swiss pass day? Grateful for guidance
Met de trein naar Gallicië
Wij hebben een huisje in de buurt van Tomiño en Tui, Galicië Spanje. We zijn steeds met het vliegtuig gereisd naar Porto en huurden daar een auto. De laatste keer hebben we met onze eigen auto gereisd en dat is ons ook goed bevallen. De consequentie is dat we wel op enkele dagen reistijd heen en terug moeten rekenen ca. 2x 2500 km. We onderzoeken nu de mogelijkheid om met de trein te reizen. We stuiten daarbij direct op enkele bezwaren. De vele keren overstappen met bagage (met name in Parijs); het lijkt erop dat je met de trein alleen via Barcelona kan reizen (dat is een behoorlijk omweg); geschikte steden om met te trein naar toe te reizen zijn voor ons Ourense, Vigo, Santiago de Compostella. Het gemakkelijkste zou dan zijn om via SAN Sebastián, Bilbao en/of Pamplona en Leon te reizen. Dat lijkt allemaal niet mogelijk volgens de planner. Kunt u ons adviseren over de meest efficiënte en praktische manier om zo dicht bij onze bestemming te komen. We zijn beiden senioren 60+ en het slep
