Two questions about the app (Android)
I have 2 questions about the app, I searched but couldn't find an answer.Why isn't there a normal calendar when searching for a train? I'm planning a trip more than 2 months from now, and my finger is getting very tired of clicking over 60 times the right arrow to go to the next date. And if there is a real clickable calendar, can you please tell me where to find it?Is there a bug in the app? After I added a train to my itinerary I can't open it, the little downward arrow is dead, meaning I can't see all the stations where a train stops, I can't see the facilities on a train, and most important: I don't see the link to reservation options. I don't want to delete the app and install it again, as I'm afraid I'll lose all trains I already added to my itinerary. Please tell me what to do to repair this.
panic mode reservations Brussels to London and London to Paris
We travel next week. I bought my rail pass with the intention of going from brussels to london and then london to paris. But I can’t make a reservation now! There is none available. HELP I have spent month planning this trip and now I can’t even get from place to place.
I have paid for legs of our trip with necessary reservations but they don’t show up in the planner. It says that there aren’t any reservations. How do I find them? Can you add all the different legs of our travel so that they are on the app? I paid for first class tickets but it seems like we won’t always be able to travel first class so should I change it to second class? I didn’t know that there would be so many additional fees to reserve on top of the eurail pass.
Mobile Pass / Trip backup
Hi,I think this subject must’ve been covered a thousand times in these forums but I either don’t quite get the restrictions or can’t quite believe a more solid backup solution isn’t available.I currently have my trip (for the whole family) on my mobile phone. It’s a three week trip spanning about 6 countries in Europe. My fear is losing my phone as there appears to be no way of having a back-up. I read somewhere you can transfer your trip details onto another phone but how do you do this if you’ve lost it?! (you can’t seem to have simultaneous duplicates!)The Interrail website doesn’t seem to have a cloud duplicate of your phone app either - this seems crazy but I believe it is correct.Any ideas on what to do (apart from not lose or break your phone) would be very useful. The stress and cost implications of losing your one travel pass is doing my head in!
Inbound/outband in one day
Hi!I have the global interrail pass for 7 days in one month with 2 inbound/outbound days. I already used 6 of my days and 1 outbound journey. That means that I have one travel day left with the inbound/outbound option. The question is. Because I already got back to my country by plane and I still want to use this last day. Can I go for one day by train to a city (in Germany) and during the same day go back to my home country (Poland)? Can it be possible to go in and out from my country during one travel day using the inbound/outbound?
One-Country-Pass Sweden: Train to and from Oslo included..?
Hello fellow travelers. I am currently planning a trip through (mostly) Sweden with a friend. I want to travel the following route: Copenhagen (Airport) - Malmo - Gotenborg - Oslo - Orebro - Uppsala - StockholmNow I am not sure if I need to buy a Global pass or if the one-country pass for Sweden suffices? I am questioning due to the statement on:https://www.eurail.com/en/get-inspired/top-destinations/sweden-train, where it says that trains to Copenhagen and Oslo would be included - but I really can’t find any more information on this anywhere on the internet. Do you have more information/experiences by chance..?

Does Eurail Global pass really include the Heathrow Express?
My answer to this is no, despite it being advertised in the Eurail planner. After a long flight from Australia, trying to activate our mobile pass for the first time, the train attendant tells us it isnt valid...because Heathrow Express isnt part of Network Rail (the UK rail consortium that combines all the tracks). Im aware of this, and I was happy that the Heathrow Express was listed as being part of the Eurail pass. But no, the ticket lady said it wasnt part of the pass and that they had tried to explain to Eurail many times that they werent involved in the scheme but they kept having travellers come up to them (like I did) showing them the Eurail Planner rules/inclusions and expecting to be able to use it. Can anyone else confirm if it really is part of the pass or if it isnt and Eurail are just false advertising?
change of inbound/outbound
Hi,this is rather urgent as I’m travelling home TOMORROW MORNIG ahh!I might have made a mistake in the beginning of my jourey.My outbound was supposed to be from Berlin to France Poitiers, but I split the journey into two days and spent the night in stuttgart. The first trip was used as outbound too even though I didnt pass the border the first day.I didnt understand there was such a rule.Now I cannot add my inbound journey for tomorrow on my mobile pass.Do I have any chance to change that?
Interrail - Eurostar
Hi thereNew to interrail and slightly baffled by the whole thing! My partner and i have 4-day passes. We want to book London St Pancras to Brussels. Have found train we want via interrail.eu; this is linked to our pass details etc. I get to the ‘payment’ stage and still cannot see which seats we’ll be assigned. Is this because there are only a certain number of pass-holder seats available, and you are just assigned whichever seats there are? I just find it strange I cannot see a seating plan or anything; maybe I’m looking in the wrong place? Do I just pay the 60 euros and then find out which seats we have?Apologies, this has probably been answered elsewhere, but I feel like I’m going round in circles! :)
One of the legs of your journey is not available anymore. Please try searching for another connection
Hi everyone.I have a 2 month eurail pass and am attempting to reserve seats for trains from Marseille to Avignon on the 13th of August and Avignon to Paris on the 14th. I don't mind what time the train leaves and hence have been attempting all different available trains throughout the days, however, every time I attempt to “proceed to payment” I get a notification stating “One of the legs of your journey is not available anymore. Please try searching for another connection”. I haven't has this issue with any of my other trains, so am unsure why this is occuring.Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks, Jamie
Traveling with a Eurail gobal pass
Hello!I'm heading to Europe this summer, my first solo and DIY trip in the region! I'm particularly heading to the ff areas in a span of 40 days:SPAIN - Barcelona (June 27- June 30)ITALY (flying in from Barcelona) - Rome, Florence, Venice (July 1 - July 11)SWITZERLAND - Geneva, Aigle, Montreux, Sion*, Lausanne*, Leysin* (July 11 - 16)CROATIA (flying in from Geneva) - Dubrovnik, Split, Plitvice, Zagreb (July 16 - July 21)AUSTRIA - Vienna, Salzburg, Innsbruck (July 21 - August 4)HUNGARY* - Budapest* (sometime between July 21 - August 4) *not yet sure if I'm heading to these destinations but good to have them as options I hope someone can provide clarification and other details to my following questions:(1) I couldn't count yet how frequent I need to take the train, and I prefer to be flexible. Is the Eurail global pass my best option? It's a bit pricey for me but would consider if I can make the most out of it (i.e. most number of trips, most convenient for traveling with a luggage).(2)
How do I choose my seat when making a reservation on TGV trains using a Eurail Global pass?
I bought a Eurail Global pass for an upcoming family trip across Europe. I’ve been able to make a 4 seat reservation for a train from Bordeaux to Narbonne (ultimately on to Barcelona from there). When making the reservation, I was unable to actually choose the floor, or seats. I was looking for four seats facing each other, on the upper deck...preferably in the family section. The site just automatically assigned me four seats. I have no idea where these seats are on the train, if they’re in the family section or if they are facing each other. Before I bought Eurail pass, I almost purchased a group of tickets from the site without using a pass. That process allowed me to choose the type of seat and section. I’m thinking I may be just done it wrong this time. Any words of wisdom or tips?Thanks in advance.
Hello all,If anyone could assist with the following inquiry it would be much appreciated.I currently have been living in Turkey, we own a flat here. Is Turkey considered as part of Europe? From what I’ve read it seems as though it is. I ask this question because it makes a difference whether I purchase Eurail pass or Interail passes for an upcoming trip to Europe.Thank you, Mark
Are there certain accesses to train stations in specific cities only according to the Eurail pass that you buy? Like if you buy the two month pass verses the 4 day in one month pass, do you have access to more train stop locations?Because when I click on various passes, they offer different maps..
