Activate Paper Pass


I bought Interrail Promotional Pass. It is written on the ticket VALID 30-06-2022 - 29-08-2022. Do I still need to activate the validity?

I called to SJ (Swedish railway company) but they informed since valid dates are mentioned, it may not needed. I was in Stockholm central station, and there is no ticket counter/machine in the central station anymore, neither information kiosk could help activating my paper passes.

Best regards,

It will.

You have to write down all trips you make and there are 2 special fields for the allowed for you in SE trip OUT and at the end to come back IN. Plus to make REServ. for some trains-in fact the X2000 and the direct DSB Köpenhamn-Hamburg (assuming this will be the most likely route you take)

Paper Interrail has never ever needed to be validated-this was the case for Eurail as they in the past could come from 1000s of different small-scale resellers and there were often errors in them-plus a check on if they were real.

@mcadv Thank you. I am taking outbound Snältåget, and inbound yet to be decided. Made reservations already. Just hoping for a pleasant experience :-)
