Hey there, I really want to go interrailing solo this winter, but I'm pretty worried that not many people will go interrailing during this time. My plan is to start from Helsinki the first of December and travel from there back to Germany. Does someone of you have experience of interrailing in winter in Scandinavia, are there people to met in hostels? I'm really looking forward for your answers :)
Hellooo,I'm arriving in Prague tonight, just leaving Vienna, I couldn't find anyone at the train station who needed a train ticket for the Vienna area there. I thought maybe someone is going from Prague and could make use of it? (For free obvs)It's valid for all 23 Vienna quarters, until the 03.10.Just lemme know :)
Interrailing from the North of England or coming to the UK for an Interrail holiday?To get to or from the North of England to the continent by train means we have to travel to London and then Eurostar, which means an early start and significant reservation fees just to get across the channel, not to mention getting E* availability.From our local airport (Leeds/Bradford) we have now flown out a couple of times for IR trips, but only 2 low cost airlines ,have been operating (Ryanair and Jet2). Recent announcements have meant that Tui and Wizzair are coming soon, increasing our options. Wizz air in particular will be covering airports in Gdansk, Katowice, Krakow, Warsaw, Wroclaw, Bucharest, and Cluj-Napoca.
My understanding is that the global pass is good for Turkey. However, I don’t see man cities in Turkey appear in the real planner app at all. For example, Cappadocia (Turkey) in the planner at all, nor Kayseri which seems to be relatively close. Similarly, Izmir does not appear nor the rail station at Turan. When I put Istanbul in the station section, it does not show any destinations at all. Can someone please explain how to do this or how this works? Thanks in advance.
Travelling in Romania with a mobile pass seems extemely challenging. Is this known by Interrail? Did I miss any warnings by Interrail?Is it even possible?We are travelling with 3 kids, and tomorrow we want to use a day. 3 trains that do not need reservation according to interrail. Fingers crossed...

Hello community,does anybody know how to deal with the following situation: We are in Spain near Barcelona and according to Interrail we are allowed to use the regional train RE1 to Barcelona City with our Global Pass. But at the local train station we need paper tickets to pass the electronic gate. So we had to buy paper tickets at the station, although we already had valid tickets. Do we have any chance to get our money back? And do you know how to deal with such situations in future? Would be glad for any advice…

We have just returned from a long weekend in Monte Carlo, but couldn’t find any E* from Paris. We could though find a couple of options from Lille.A local train from Monte Carlo to Nice Ville in good time for the morning TGV to Paris Gare de Lyon.Then a RER transfer to Gare de Nord took about 30 mins for late afternoon TGV train to Lille (Connection time was 1 hr) Only stressful time was getting a ticket for the RER - easy once I got to the front of the queue for the machine.A mid centre 4* hotel and an excellent evening meal at on of the many Brasseries within 10 minutes walk ( a little expensive I admit).Then we had the morning in Lille centre, including an excellent Breakfast in another of the great Brasseries at half the price of the hotel.We then walked up to Lille Europe (via EuraLille shopping centre) - about 15 mins walking plus time in EuraLille for a coffee and a dash around Carrefour. Check in for 1335 E* started at 1230 and was a bit slow for passport checks but otherwise e
Hi!I am looking to travel to Bar in Montenegro in May from the UK. We then plan to travel back via train too. My husband has a fear of flying so thought this would be a great way to get to Europe with him having a meltdown!On the way there we need to travel as quickly as possible as we are going to a yoga retreat that starts on 18th May. However, on the return journey (25th) we have a bit more time. Is it possible to get some help and advice on planning this journey. I’ve never done anything like this before as I normally fly so I would really appreciate a bit of help! Thanks in advance 🙏🏼Corfe
Manually added journeys are sometimes not shown on the rail planner app, Google maps or ViaMichelin doesn't draw rail itineraries: Does anybody know about an app where I can draw my finished journey in order to screen-copy it e.g. in foto book? I couldn't find unfortunately.
Hi guys,I will arrive in Istanbul tomorrow morning and spend there two or three days. I am currently in Bucharest so I would like to go to the other direction ( Sofia, Croatia etc.)Do you have any suggestions on how to leave Istanbul and where to head next?It seems quite complicated to get to the direction of Montenegro / Croatia. If there’s no good train connection I would just go by bus.Just leave any recommendations or inspiration :)Thanks a lot in advance
Hello everyone!I’m planning my trip this August and I noticed that I could benefit from some ferry discounts to travel between Greece and Italy (30-100% off) on board Superfast and ANEK ferries. As I read in the site: “As a Pass holder you can get from 30% off (surcharges for port taxes and fuel apply) up to 100% off (if you have a Global Pass).” I have a 15days straight pass (2nd class) but when I tried to book the tickets I could only get a 30% discount… Note: I’m planning to travel from Ancona (Italy) to Patra (Greece) at 18th August.
