Hello everyone,We are a group of five people that have Interrail global passes for the 2nd class and we need help with two trains, one from Hamburg to Copenhagen at the 7th of August (leaving Hamburg at 23:56 and reaching Copenhagen at 8:19). We have already booked a reservation for a train that leaves the next day (at 8:19 AM) from Copenhagen to Stockholm, so we don’t want to miss that. But the one that leaves at 23:56 from Hamburg says that the reservations are sold out. If it had to be done, we would just try to find a train that would take us straight from Hamburg to Stockholm and just try to cancel the reservation (if it’s even possible, some of them were sold out and some were unavailable because of some sweden rail track repairs from what I’ve read). The same goes for the train from Copenhagen to Hamburg at the 14th of August (leaving Copenhagen at 5:17 and reaching Hamburg at 10:05). We would like to catch the train after this one that we have a reservation for (from Hamburg to
Hey there, In may i bought the interrail youth pass 2 months. I activated it in june, and its valid untill the end of August. Today (26/06) i traveled from utrecht cs to dusseldorf and back in one day. The ticket inspector just told me that i’ve used all of my in/outbounds already which would mean that i’m not able to travel from my home country (the netherlands) to another country in europe. The app says i have 67 days left…. I was planning to go to switzerland for a week starting from the 31st of july. How do i plan my trip now? do i buy seperate tickets to the border? i am also 17 so i travel with 40% discount in summer. Can someone help me plan my trip without in/outbounds? It’s pretty confusing… thanks a lot!
Hello hive mind!I am planning to take the night train from Bucurest Nord to Halkali. In the rail planner app, and on https://bileteinternationale.cfrcalatori.ro/, this train is shown as one train with no changes on the way. However when I tried to book the reservation at the DB travel center, I was told that I have to change two times on the way. Checking the time table (https://p.bdz.bg/www/p/t/ptev-mezhd-cfr-2022-lyato-3011.pdf) the trip is also shown with a changeover. Does anybody know which information in valid?Thanks in advance :)
Hello :) my girlfriend and I are planning to travel through Scandinavia with the interrail pass. We will start on the 15th of July and will be travelling for 2 months. I was wondering if any of you have some tips on what to see. Mainly we want to hike a lot, go kayaking, maybe rafting. Also we will take a tent with us, so that we can save some money. If you have any recommendations for hikes, places to see or anything about scandinavia please let us know. Christian
I just read that Italy has extended it's covid mask rules: still need to wear a mask until late September. On the forum I also read that this means that sleeper/couchette is for solo use only and that it's cheaper to book last minute in trenitalia than through Interail. (On OBB no availability for the dates I'm looking at) Question:Current price siracuse-rome 43€ for couchette on Interail (July)..-> are couchettes shared again then? Meaning masks on while asleep? If not, seems like a great deal, 43 for a private couchette. Vs high cost of private sleeper
Just wanted to let others know that it’s extremely hard to get anywhere by train in Turkey right now. I had no problems getting the sleeper from Sofia to Istanbul the day of, and the train was half empty.But you can’t BUY a ticket, much less get a reservation, for over a week on any of the routes I’ve checked across the country unless you’re in a wheelchair. Many of the routes say they have one seat open, but when you check it’s only for wheelchair users.Some of the routes like Ankara to Kar are booked up for almost two weeks. So if you plan to come to Turkey, do your reservations as far our as possible. The website to check tickets is https://ebilet.tcddtasimacilik.gov.tr/
I’ve left my luggage on the train from Zürich to Milan how do I recover my baggage I was travelling first class Treni Italia euro city 319 Coach 9 Seat 66 on the 23/06/2022 time arrived at 16.50 I’m Milan Is there anyway I can get some help , I’ve reported it in Milan but Treni Italia could not help me …not an Italian train they said ! any help or suggestions would be much appreciated
I am quietly working out my plans to travel from Brussels to Naples.The travel date is not fixed yet, but will normally be somewhere at the end of August ... and 1st week of September.The route I have in mind:Brussels North - Cologne (ICE)Cologne - Basel (ICE)Basel - Lugano (IC)Lugano - Milan (RE)Departure 6u32am, arrival 17u17pm.If I would like to reserve a seat for the ICE, I pay 5.30 euros for 1st class per person, per journey.I wouldn't want to do that, but my travel partner isn't convinced about trains, so maybe better to reserve a seat after all. Otherwise I risk having to change seats several times.1/Why does the SBB travel planner not show the train at 16u02 pm departing from Lugano in August ?Is that because not all travel times have been communicated from Italy yet?2/Would the SBB travel planner show a connection via Bern and Brig on August 26, because the 16:02 train from Lugano to Milan is not (yet) available?3/Is it easy to get from Milan Central to Milan Porta Garibaldi?O
Hi,I would like to travel from Skopje to Thessaloniki in August. I know that the train is not an option on this route so I will have to take the bus. However, I cannot seem to find any information online on International busses departing from Skopje. I did find a Rule Turs bus bookable on busticket4.me or getbybus on Tue, Thu, Sat: Skopje - Thessaloniki 8.30-13.05, but I don't know how reliable these sites are as I could not find a (working) site of Rule Turs itself. Does anybody have more information/experience regarding this route?Thank you in advance.
Me and my boyfriend are planning an interrail trip from Amsterdam to Athene. We want to travel from Amsterdam to Innsbruck and from Innsbruck to Zurich. Thereafter we want to travel to Serbia to continue our journey to Athene, but we can not find a connection between Zurich or another place in Swiss and Belgrado in Serbia. Has anyone done this before and can tell us how we can travel between Swiss and Serbia? Thanks in advance! :)
We are a couple that are planning to do a trip around Europe with our puppy, even if he is a young puppy, he will not be able to travel as a "luggage" due to size. Are there any countries we should avoid? Which countries are best for traveling with a pet? We dont mind paying, we just want it to be as hassle free as possible.
Hello! I bought my global passes yesterday but couldn’t make any reservations right away & now it’s not showing any seat reservation possibilities on August 1st, 23:51 train Ljubljana to Munich. If I look at RailEurope it’s showing it’s running/seats are available. Any suggestions on how to book it?
Hi, Will be visiting Austria end of the year and we will be purchasing the Eurail pass. Would like to know where the first class cabins are located in the train. Are they at the front or end of the trains? If we are to wait at the platform for the train to arrive, how do we tell which part of the platform we should be standing to wait for the train? We are travelling with some senior citizens and we hope we can know where the 1st class cabins are located so that we would not have to run and rush when the train arrives and realising that we are actually waiting at the wrong end of the train. By the way are we able to walk through the train carriages?
Hi everyone, Anyone who did a trip by train from Belgium to Turkey? I'm interested in doing this with my 10y old son this summer vacation. But I really have no clue where to start! Which route is recommended? And is the interrail pass for 7 days/month enough for this trip? How are the days counted? Thanks in advance! Hope to hear some tips 🖐
Hi all,I am currently travelling in Lithuania. I know that the connections are not possible from Poland and yet took a bus to come. However, the application shows that it is possible to travel through the inner main cities - for example, Vilnius-Klaupedia, Vilnius-Šiauliai…Moreover I read on related topics that it was possible to travel in Lithuania with Interrail. And on the website, it is written that bookings are not compulsory. However this morning, I took a train to Šiauliai and the controller validated my ticket, but she said I was missing the booking. Then I had to pay a bus to come back because they were no booking available anymore. My question is, how do you normally travel with Interrail in Lithuania, without the booking fees ? At the station, I was told that the booking was not for free. But in the app, it is not written that a booking is mandatory and as I wrote, it is even mentionned that it us not compulsory. Thanks in advance for your answers !
does anyone know where I can book the EN 463 (night jet) from Munich to Budapest? I can only find the connection Munich-Vienna. The train is displayed everywhere, but there are no booking options.If the train is not running at the moment, is there an alternative to get from Germany to Budapest by night train?Thank you
Hola!! Queremos ir de viaje a la zona de los Balcanes, pero si estoy en lo cierto, la línea de tren Zagreb-Sarajevo está cerrada indefinidamente.¿Alguien sabe si el bus (que es la alternativa) se puede coger con el Eurail Pass o habría que pagarlo a parte? Dado que el tren está cerrado.Muchas gracias!! :)
My son has a two month Eurail Pass with 15 train rides. We have friends in a ski town called VARS in the Alpes. I see that there is a train from Paris to Chorges. Can I get my son from Chorges to Mont Dauphin via bus? I think he can get a ride from Mont Dauphin to Vars from our friends but this seems the most efficient? Also, does the Eurail pass cover the TGV high speed train? In that case he can take that from Paris (Lyon)-Grenoble. I would then need to get him from Grenoble to Mont Dauphin where he could get picked up. So looking for the most efficient way to get my son from Paris-Vars. Cheers! Joe
Hi, as previous topics, I need a pass cover number for my mobile pass in order to reserve seats using a third party website (TGV, not interail). I’ve tried emailing the support team but no response. Urgent help required, thanks very much. @Nanja ?
