The Interrail website states: “if you have an Interrail Global Pass, you can travel on one travel day to leave your country of residence (outbound) and on one travel day to return (inbound)”, ie “can” not “must”.I live in the UK. I have a pass for 4 days travel in a month. I have started my trip in Austria, ie I do not intend to use an outward journey from the UK as a travel day. The pass now tells me that I only have 2/4 travel days left. Does that mean I have lost one of my travel days, because I have not started my trip from home? If so, the website is unclear and misleading.I hope someone can help!John
Hi,We bought the 7 day pass on a bit of a whim and are now thinking over logistics. Considering possible taking it down to a 4 day trip instead with us paying some tickets ourselves We are travelling with an 8 and 10 year old and coming from Glasgow. My initial idea was Glasgow - London - Paris on day one but it’s going to be quite a long day so I’m trying to think of alternatives but not sure I can or if I’m picking up the pass rules correctly. I’ve put in bold the days I’m questioning:Idea 1 - reducing down to 4 day pass:Day 1: Glasgow to London and stop over for a night Get the Eurostar (we would pay the Eurostar trip as it’s not much more than the seat reservations would be anyway). Day 2: Paris to Black Forest Day 3: Black Forest to Paris Eurostar home to London where we would stay a night or so Day 4: London to GlasgowIdea 2 - keeping 7 day pass:Day 1: Glasgow to London and stop over for a night Day 2: Get the Eurostar to Paris Day 3: Paris to Black Forest Day 4: A stop somew
Hello everyone, just now I was trying to book seat reservation for a train from London to Edinburgh in July. The system didn’t show any availability because July is still too far away. So I tested with an earlier date just to see how the reservation system works. I put in a random date and followed the steps by selecting a random train and a random seat type. (I didn’t really understand the differences among all the seat types) Then I clicked continue, the next thing it shows my booking is completed, and it also says on the page “you can’t amend or refund this booking”. I couldn’t find any options to cancel or delete this order as it was only for a test. Does anyone know what I can do in this situation?Thank you in advance.🙏
I just purchased a 10 day 2 month global pass. i want to now book eurostar which happens to be at the end of my 2 months eurail pass 20 June. Can I go and book this and not activate the pass, as I will commence travel 2 months prior (21 April) to the eurostar booking. Gosh this is all so confusing
Looking at my active pass, I see the above menu option enabling me to move my pass to another device. Is this new?Can I now switch devices myself without issues, even if the pass is active? Or is this a bug?The FAQ still very clearly states this is not possible. Not that I need to do so, but I'm confused by the option.
Traveling to a destination that is not served by a nighttrain - does it count as 1 or 2 travel days?
I would like to travel from the Netherlands to Bologna. There are many possible routes. But if I for example travel from the Netherlands to Basel using a nighttrain and then take the train from Basel to Bologna with a transfer in Milano. Does this count as 1 day? Or 2 days? I guess that if stopped my journey in Milano it would count as 1 day, but if I then take a train from Milano to Bologna, it could count as 2 days (although it is within 24 hours). Can anybody help me? Many thanks in advance.
Hi everyone, I was trying to book seat reservations (for Eurail pass holders) for a train from Paris Gare de Lyon to Nice Ville on 13 May on travel.b-europe.com, it came up with two different options of the same departure time (13:54), both trains are direct trains with the exact same travel time, departure time, and arrival time.One of the train number is TGV6077 with a beverage symbol next to it and shows all the stops along the way. The other train number is TGV6177 without a beverage symbol and shows no stops along the way. So my question is are these trains both exactly the same or TGV6177 doesn't serve drinks and without stopping while TGV6077 serves drinks and stops in all the stops showing in the details?Are both these trains TGV INOUI?Thank you so much in advance.Please refer to the pictures below:
Hello,We’re two persons who wants to go from Denmark to Amsterdam. Earlier this week we were able to find tickets for the journey with three traveldays, making it possible for us to go back and forth + one day with an excursion.But it suddenly seems like it has vanished from the website, leaving us with 4 traveldays as our only option, plus the tickets appr. 130 euro more expensive.Does anyone know if the 3 day ticket still is available?Thanks in advance.
Last year I bought a Global Pass 1st class (15 days in 2 months) and it costed 680 euros (just checked my bank account). Maybe I want to buy this pass again this year, so I checked and I noticed the price is 657 euros, 23 euros less. Of course cheaper is nice, but since everything has become more expensive, I wonder if this price is the correct one. Anyone who can tell me?
I want to reserve seats on a direct trip May 27 TGV 9245 (Paris - Milan). But when I try, I see in my cart Torino- Milan. It is supposed to be a direct train. Even if I have to change trains in Torino - I do not see an option to reserve Paris to Torino. Can the reservation be done on line? (I activated my pass). THank you
hello, we want to travel this summer from Amsterdam to Istanbul with stops in Berlin, Budapest, Zagreb, Belgrado, Sofia with final destination Istanbul. Is is possible to do this now? I can only find a ticket from Amsterdam to Berlin and the rest is only 90 days or 60 days before departure and the train from Budapest to Zagreb I can’t find?
My friend and I have purchased the 3 month global eurail pass. I just want to confirm that the only thing we have to do is reserve seats on the trains? Do we have to get tickets? For example we have booked seat reservations for London to Paris through the rail planner app, and we have these sent to our email. Is there anything else we need to do or do we then rock up for the train on the day? Thank you!!!
Hello,i am travelling this summer with the 7 days in a month pass and i want to go from Sofia to Istanbul with the night train. I heard that i can buy my ticket at the station but i was wandering if it count as a travel day. I’d like to know if buying a ticket at the station is different than adding a journey to the pass. Also, i want to do the same with the ferry from patra (greece) to ancone(italy) and from ancone to split. I think there is a discount for people travelling with an interrail pass but i don’t know if this kind of journey count as a travel day.if anyone know…
My plan is to buy the pass then aim to travel from UK to France at the start of March. I don’t have a set date and I don’t have a set schedule; just stop where I like depending on the weather and move on when I’m done. Planning to circle Europe (through France down to Monte Negro, then back up and across to Spain and Portugal before returning to UK via France. The ‘7days in a month’ pass looks the best deal to me.My question is: do I need an itinerary? Every time I visit the Eurail site it keeps asking me for ‘destination’ and ‘plan your trip’…? My destination is back home eventually, and I don’t want to make a set plan…...is this Ok with Eurail or do I need to specify anything?Many thanks, Andy
First of all - thanks to all on the forum for the clarifications provided over the last few days. You have eased my path significantly.What I think I’ve realised is that the term trip as used in the Interrail context seems to be misleading. Trip as used in the app is a collection of potential moves from point A to point B, point B to point C, but also point B to points D, E, F, G & H - it’s like a pick list or a wish list. You can define any number of journeys in a trip, and you can travel on some or all of them. So it’s not actually a trip. Your actual trip may go A-B-C-H, or maybe A-B-C-E.A trip in Interrail terms is only a list of possible travel legs which may or may not be taken.A trip in ordinary usage is an actual journey - “I’m planning a trip from Edinburgh(A) to Nice(D), via London(B) and Paris(C).” or “I took a trip from Edinburgh(A) to Milan(H), via London(B) and Paris(C). I went to Milan instead of Nice because the weather was bad in Nice on the day.”It may seem
