What is a Eurail/ Interrail Pass? The Eurail and Interrail Pass is a single train pass that lets you travel as much as you want on participating European train networks for a set amount of travel days. There are different validities you can choose from, ranging from just 4 travel days up to a maximum of 3 months.You can travel with a Eurail Global Pass / Interrail Global Pass, which is valid in 33 European countries, or pick one of the Eurail One Country Passes / Interrail One Country Passes.The majority of our Passes, including the Eurail Global Pass, are now also available as a mobile Pass. Eurail Passes can only be used by non-European citizens or non-European residents. European citizens can use an Interrail Pass instead. Do I need a Eurail or Interrail Pass? A Eurail Pass can only be used by non-European citizens or non-European residents.

Hello there,I’m arriving in London and I need to get to Liverpool. I was planning on using my Eurail Global Pass (which I will be using for visiting other countries). The problem is that the only option recommended is a train from London to Liverpool of Avanti West Coast, and I don’t understand if my Eurail Global pass includes this franchise. Is this true? If not, how can I benefit from the pass within London and Liverpool, since I will be travelling a lot between these two cities? Thank you so much.
This is a situation that I had last month. I had an Interrail ticket, and I planned to travel from Copenhagen (Denmark) to Geneva within a day. However, one of the trains from Denmark (DSB) was delayed which made me lose my connection, and eventually I arrived to Basel very late and there were no more trains to Geneva that day. I had to stay in a hotel in Basel (which I paid for) and continue the day after. I contacted DSB to ask for the reimbursement of the hotel (as it is their fault, their train was late), but they said that it should be SBB who pays, as the hotel was in Switzerland. I asked at a SBB station, and they have no idea about who should pay or what should be the procedure. They told me to fill in the passenger rights form on the SBB website, but it doesn’t work because it’s an international trip. In the international passenger rights from SBB it says that if I didn’t buy the ticket with SBB, I can’t fill in the form. Interrail states clearly that they do not take care of
Hi there, Just wondering when does the Eurostar tickets are usually getting opened for reservation?I see that the system only shows me the tickets available till the 9th of Dec. I’m currently planning my trip on the 27th of Dec from London to Paris btw. Thanks in advance. Cheers
Hi there!I want to go from Aachen to Paris Nord on 5 November but the b-europe website no longer offers 2nd class seats. Is it possible to take a 1st class ticket even if I have a 2nd class pass? The website doesn't forbid me from doing this, but I'm more worried about the ticket inspectors if I'm not allowed to do
Hello everyone, and it's great that we can assist each other through this medium. I'm Gustavo from Chile, and I'll be travelling to Europe for a few days. Part of our journey will be by plane and some by train. We want to purchase the Global Pass for 5 days. On the first day, we plan to use it to travel from Amsterdam to visit The Hague and Rotterdam in the Netherlands. On the second day, we wish to go from Berlin to Brussels (Belgium), the third day from Brussels to Paris, the fourth day from Paris to Rome, and the fifth day from Rome to Milan. The issue I have is that my son will turn 12 years old while we're in Paris. So, for the last two days of using the Global Pass, he will be 12 years old. How can I manage this situation?
Hi everyone, I’m new here, I’m a music student from Uruguay looking for some advice for my upcoming trip.I’ll stay about a week in Croatia and a week in Germany, and maybe a few days in Austria and Czech Republic. I’m trying to understand what kind of pass or card would be the best option, and I have a few questions:Does a Eurail Global Pass include local transport, for example inside one city or connecting smaller cities? When using the tripplaner map in eurail.com, the city of Freiberg is not recognized so I wonder if there’s no connection with that city included in the Pass. If the Global Pass includes local transportation, would you recommend getting it, considering that the majority of my train rides will be inside Germany and inside Croatia? Or would it be better to get a BahnCard and pay an extra when I travel between countries? Could I get a BahnCard and a 4day Global Pass, so that I use the BahnCard in Germany and the Pass for connections between different countries? Would you
Hallo! Ich starte meine Reise bereits aus dem Ausland und fahre in mein Heimatland und bleibe dort auch eine Nacht. Für diese Reise würde ich jedoch ungern bereits meinen “Inbound” nutzen. Kann ich in der App meine Reise bis an die Grenze planen (der geplante Zug hält dort auch) und ab der Grenze dann ein gewöhnliches Ticket für mein Heimatland kaufen?Am nächsten Tag fahre ich dann wieder ins Ausland und einige Tage später wieder zurück ins Heimatland, wobei ich bei diesen zwei Fahrten dann meinen “In- und Outbond” nutzen wollen würde.
Hello, I am a Dutch student which is going to study in Germany. Because I'm required to do so I will be a registered resident in Germany as well as in the Netherlands. I want to use public transport often when I am in Germany so I would probably like to buy a global pass for the time being. However, I would also sometimes like to travel back to my home in the Netherlands with the European Sleeper nighttrain. Because I am registered in both countries, I would like to know if it would be possible to buy an additional Benelux Pass (as a German resident) and a Global pass (as a Dutch citizen) so that I can use my inbound/outbound trip of my global pass later? I don't know if this is practical, however, I would just like to know if it would be allowed to make a seat reservation at the European Sleeper nighttrain with a Benelux pass together with a Global pass so that I don't have to use my inbound/outbound trip yet.
Hello all,My son and I have just successfully negotiated a trip combining our interrail pass and SNCF & Eurostar reservations to visit Nice in order to attend a match in the Rugby World Cup France 2023.The most pleasing element was the journey from Marseille to London St Pancras via Lille Europe which required reservations on the TGV & Eurostar but only used up one day in the pass. The Eurostar journey back was one of the two journeys that the pass enables one to take form or back to one’s home country - in our case the UK.I am really grateful to all of those people who responded to our requests for explanation and information on how the card and its combination with reservations works; they made a huge difference. Thank you all very much.The app worked very well for us and we took and used printed copies of the reservations for TGV and Eurostar reservations. I had the PDFs in my emails and would have been able to access then if necessary.Best wishes, John
I chose a 7-day Global Eurail Pass, which is called “Budget” (other options were Economy and Premium, the latter lasting a month). I selected the upgrade to first-class. When I got to the Add to Cart screen and later screens, the text said “second class”, though the price remained at the first-class price.This is very confusing. I can’t tell what I am about to buy. Why is an option listed as first class only to change to second class?
Hi All, I am travelling from Brussels to Paris tonight and I didn’t realise that a seat reservation is required. I thought Eurorail pass holders doesn’t require reservations. Now I got to know that all the seats are fully booked. Is it possible for me to travel without reservation? The officer told me that I have to take another ticket for travel by standing which cost 134£ per person. How can i use my eurrail pass for this trip?
Haré un viaje junto a mis amigas para navidad (París - Bruselas - Amsterdam - Alemania - Suiza - Italia) y me pregunto si está permitido usar el pase intarrail dentro de los países, por ejemplo, si puedo ir desde Bruselas a Brujas y Gantes con ese pase, y si también está incluido el Bernina Express. Gracias
I am planning an Interrail trip in 2022. I will buy a senior Global pass and intend to visit several large cities in Europe. My question is to help me with my budgetting for the trip. Please could someone tell me if a first class senior global interrail pass entitles the holder to complimentary food on the trains and or eurostar- perhaps on some trains and not on others? Or how to find this out. with thanks
I’ll be traveling from Zurich to Munich via rail soon, and I was wondering if I could use my Swiss GA Travelcard along with a Eurail Germany Rail Pass to complete my journey? The website says travel is only covered to Basel with the Eurail Germany Rail Pass, but could I use my GA Travelcard to cover the travel in Switzerland then use the Eurail Germany Pass to cover the border crossing and Germany travel? Thanks in advance
We are a family of four, two children aged 8 and 11 and two adults. We wanted to take an Interrail trip, excited about traveling by train and trusting that it would be pleasant and fun. How wrong we were! Our experience has been horrible. We have taken 8 trains and we have had delays in 5! the shortest 45 minutes, the longest 160! Because of this we have lost the link with the following trains, so we lost the seat reservations we had in first class. Result: on one occasion we had to travel in the train bar, on another we had to spend the night (9 hours!) in a seat despite having reserved beds. I insist: with two small children. If you don't trust our words, take a look at Interrail's compensation policy: they do not compensate any delay of less than 60 minutes. Because? obvious: because there are so many, they would lose money. And the biggest delays equally at ridiculous prices. But that is not all! Changes in train schedules without prior notice, mistreatment by train and station sta
