Bonjour cher Interrail,

Planifiez un voyage avec toi n est pas facile, voire impissible.

Tes horaires sont aleatoires, ne correspondent pkus avec ce que nous avions prevu, heureusement que j avais planifié il y a qualques mois parce que depuis peu tout les horaires ont changé…

Nous sommes obligés de nous rendre sur toutes les societes de transport dans les pays ou nous allons…

Je voulais savoir, quelqu un lit tout ces posts ?

Vous vous rendez compte du bordel que represente votre planificateur ?

Vous comptez faire quelquechose ?

Reveillez vous....

Here is some useful information from the experienced travellers in the Community regarding both planning, reservations and activation of pass and travel days. 


The rail planner is normally not up to date, as it only is updated once a month, so to be sure of the time table you better check the timetable and availability on the websites of the national railways. The bigger national railways, like DB (Germany) SBB (Switzerland) and ÖBB (Austria) cover several countries. 


The advice from the experienced travellers in the community is to use other ways to make reservations than the Interrail/Eurail website.  You can look at the guide in the link:

If you, after having looked at the guide, have questions about how to make specific reservation, please give your travel details (departure date, time and route) preferably in a new topic, and you will get advice.

Please note that Interrail/Eurail charges an extra fee of 2 EUR per person and train in addition to the fee for the seat reservation.

 Activation of pass

During the activation process, when you choose the start day of the validity of the pass, the first day of the validity period is automatically made a travel day, even if you don't enter a journey, the advice is therefore not to activate the pass before the first travel day as you only can deactivate the pass before 00.00 on the day the validity starts. If your travel plans change in the last moment you will loose travel days if you have activated the pass in advance.

It can be wise to make a test and activate the pass with a start date well in the future and then deactivate the pass immediately, just to see that everything works.

 Activation of travel day

The advice from the experienced travellers in the community is also never to activate a travel day, that is connect a journey to your pass, until just before boarding the train, otherwise you might loose a travel day if your travel plans change in a late stage  You can't delete a travel day in the past. A travel day can only be deleted until 23.59 CET the day before the travel day.

The very same could be said from those who are not so priviliged to live in that hexagone and must use SNCR-TER: now also divided up into all the regions with all different fares and conditions-and also eternal strikes (social movements)
