I live in Germany, not so far from the Dutch border. I want to travel to Italy and France this summer, but start from Amsterdam as the nightjet starts from there. I rashly booked an expensive holiday house last night, after working out that me and the family could have some fun with an Interrail ticket and visit a few places on the way. I went to book the Interrail ticket and saw the home country travel rule. Oh! Now I think it might not be possible to holiday as i’d planned so I really need your help.
The plan is to leave on a Wednesday, from where I live in Germany (near the Dutch border) to Amsterdam to catch the nightjet NJ40295 that evening. This goes direct to Munich overnight, arrives Thursday morning. I need to be in Munich for the connection to Milan on Thursday evening, also a nightjet, so arriving on Friday morning. Have I already reached my home country travel limit? I mean, i’m just leaving the country, but it takes a long long time in that direction!
And I still need to get home of course, but I can do that in 1 travel day as i’ll be going home via Paris. So if you can help figure out how the outward journey can count as 1 “in home country” journey, (1) you’re amazing, and (2) I can go on holiday without having to book a flight.
If it’s not possible then i’m in trouble! I’ll have to re-write the holiday plans.
thanks for any help and advice you can give, and please don’t make me take a plane!
