struggling understanding seat reservations
First time user. Travelling from Aus to Europe in June. My first train trip will be Paris to Zurich oh June 10. I have logged onto my eurail account and clicked on seat reservations. My pass is first class. It seems to be telling me the seat reservation is over $100 😩. Is that right.
Can I tell if pass seats are still available on Eurostar
I’m trying to decide between buying point to point or Eurorail --- the most expensive part of the trip is the Eurostar from London to Paris. But I can’t see where I can make sure seats are still available using the pass on the specific day I need to travel. Suggestion?? Thanks!
Refund for Pass
After buying a eurail pass and activating it, I discovered that there were no eurail reservations available on the train I need to take so I would like a refund. However, I can’t ask for a refund because I have started a trip and can’t delete the trip because the website will not let me delete the traveler (me) from it. How do I delete the traveler/trip so I can request a refund?
no help from interrail
Hello, I have a big problem, I had a technical problem to activate my pass. Now since one week I ask Interrail to help me, because my pass now is not valid anymore.

Now I’m losing my money 400€, and can’t go trevel with my son because he aktivate his pass. help please!
Combining rail ticket with Interrail Global pass for same journey
Hello everyone,We live in Hamburg, Germany. My wife and I bought two 4 days in 1 month global passes and were planning to use it to travel around Hungary. We used it to go to Budapest but had to cut our journey short and come back. So we used up the outbound/inbound (2 days out of 4). We would like to use the remaining 2 days for a Nordic trip.Since the outbound and inbound are used up, can we book a rail ticket from Hamburg to a Danish border town like Padeborg and from Padeborg switch over to our global passes? Because once we are out of Germany which is our country of residence, we can start using the global pass again.So, we get on the Hamburg to Copenhagen direct train, reserve seats all the way from Hamburg to Copenhagen, but we buy rail tickets only from Hamburg to Padeborg. At Hamburg, we show the ticket checker these rail tickets. Can they then question us about why our seats are reserved until Copenhagen? And then at Padeborg, we start a travel day and then select the same tr
Eurail Pass - reservations essential?
I have bought a 7-day Eurail pass for June-July travel in Italy-Switzerland. The pass does not apply to local/regional trains but question I have is when it is stated Reservations are needed - is this just for a seat - or can the Eurail pass still be used e.g. standing room where accepted without that reservation?eg. travel Rome Airport station to Roma Tiburtina on 26 June 2023 Other question isNo seat reservation is available anyway for above travel on Eurail search engine- is this because it is too early being now 16th April trying to book for 26/6/23? I read somewhere timetables become enfixed 2 months in advance?
Night train bookable in B-Europe?
This might sound silly... I booked to and from Eurostar tickets last month on b-europe.com and it went perfectly fine… Now I'm trying to book a NJ from Austerlitz to Nice Ville and I just can't seem to remember where I selected the Eurail discount. The only difference is that last time I did it on the laptop and this time I'm using the B Europe app on an Android. But that shouldn't make a difference, right? Right now its only showing the following discount card options:Regards.
Train strike on first (outbound) travel day.
Hello,We are planning a trip from Perpignan in the south of France to Amsterdam - Odense - Stockholm and have bought a 4day/1month pass for that. Now, because of the frequent train strikes here in France these days, we think we should fly to Amsterdam instead of going by train. We live near the Spanish border, so getting to Barcelona and flying from there would not be a problem.The question is then: Can we still use the pass for the rest of our journey, i.e. for the Amsterdam - Odense - Stockholm part?
Wrong country of residence
I already did 2/4 of my pass but its the first time im using a global pass so i didnt know the meaning of the in and out thing. I choose France for residance country but actually it is Belgium. I know you cant change it and you have to ask for a refund. Is that also possible if you have open trips on the pass? I dont know what to do now.
Used mobile pass number as pass cover number when making reservations through train operator websites
Hi,I have made seat reservations for:Manchester - London (gwr.com, free, can rebook if needed)London - Paris, b-europe.com, Eurostar (same day as above journey)Paris - Strasbourg, b-europe.com, TVG INOUI (although it was €4 booking fee not €2 so not 100% sure I booked it on b-europe.com - might have been sncf-connect.com?! But I can’t see how to make eurail seat reservations on there...)Strasbourg - Vienna, oebb.at NightjetWhenever it asked for pass cover number I entered my mobile pass number (purchased via myinterrail.co.uk) as on b-europe.com it says this is the number in the mobile pass confirmation email.. but I’ve since read this is not a pass cover number and these can be generated here - https://www.eurail.com/en/book-reservations#/generatePassCoverNumberWhich is not made clear anywhere at all!Do I need to worry or will this be fine?Second question… do I need to mark my Manchester - London and London - Paris journeys as outbound journeys in the app?I have a 3 month continuous p
Cancelling/rebooking an Intercity Notte Reservation (Trenitalia)
I needed to change the reservation of a 4bed couchette from Bologna-Palermo to Bologna-Siracusa but couldn’t find an option to cancel or rebook my reservation without costs. (First I wanted to book a 2nd class single bed but couldn’t find a possibility either) My local train company’s office wasn’t able to solve the problem, too.Is there still a chance to get the reservation, that is not needed refunded.?Alois
Youth Pass - What is meant by "Start of the trip"?
Hey there, I would like to take Eurail Italy 3 days within 1 month 1st Class passes for me and my wife. My wife's birthday is on April 29th and she will turn 28 on 29 April, 2023.If I buy a pass starting from 26 April, 2023 will she be eligible for the Youth discount?I am planning to use the pass for travel in Italy on 5, 6 and 15 May, 2023. The website says “If you're 27 or younger on the date you choose to start your trip, you can buy our discounted Youth Pass.”. I am not sure what start of trip means here.Just to make it clear, on the start of validity of the pass (26 April, 2023), she will be 27 years old and on the first day of travel (5 May, 2023), she will be 28 years old. Thanks in advance!
Hi, when making seat reservations are they only needed between the stations listed or for the whole journey. For example, I want to travel from Paris to Milan. The booking indicates seat reservations are required. I cannot book a seat all the way through from Paris to Milan. Do I need to book only from Paris to Macon - ie between the 2 stations listed; or do 1 seat reservation for the French section and another for the Italian?When trying to book seats with Italian Rail, they are not accepting my Pass Code for the booking. Just keeps rejecting the entry. Thanks in advanceDebbie

Hey Guys! When I Put my Pass into my Phone 2 month ago, I probably accidentally activated it already, without wanting to do so. Now, when I wanted to start my Journey, it's invalid 😞. Is there any Chance to reset it or so? I haven't used any of the travel days yet of course. I'm Happy to hear from you! Best regards! Paul and Lennart
