Hello all, hope you’ve had a nice Christmas!
I’m trying to add a journey within my ‘home country’ to my mobile Interrail pass. The problem is, the trains/route I want to take aren’t offered by the app (I think the problem is that the app doesn’t have the most recent timetables), and there’s more than one train/leg involved.
I know how to manually add each train to My Trip, but when I try to create a barcode for this, it warns me that “when adding a journey or leg to your pass to travel in your country of residence, you’ll be prompted to use one of these two journeys. Once you’ve used your outbound and inbound journeys: you’ll not be able to add an additional journey or leg to your Pass to travel on trains in your home country”.
This suggests that I won’t be able to add all the legs of my journey without using a travel day for each leg. As my journey involves more than two legs (and I still need the second ‘home country’ journey for another day!) this clearly isn’t an option.
Does anyone know a workaround for this? Is there some way of manually adding multiple legs to one journey? Or is the warning wrong, and you actually can add multiple legs/“journeys” as long as it’s all just on one day? I don’t want to try it out and potentially waste a valuable ‘home country’ travel day!
Also, can you change the trains in your ‘home country’ trip after you’ve created the barcode, as you can for foreign journeys? For instance, if you change which train you plan to take due to delays or change of plans.
I’m worried that I’m going to have to buy a ticket to make my ‘home country’ journeys, which could be quite expensive. Up until now, the mobile pass has worked great - but this is a limitation that wasn’t set out anywhere in the terms. If there’s no way around it, I feel like the domestic journey element has been missold to me - I shouldn’t be penalised for the fact that the app won’t show the trains I’m taking.
