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.
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?
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
One adult travelling with 2 children under 11 - Seat reservations
Hi, I’m looking at booking a 4 day Interrail pass for me and my children who are 10 and 7. According to website this pass is around £220 and the children don’t need to pay, is this correct? Also the 4 days travel will be one day from London to Barcelona, another day from Barcelona to San Sebastián in Spain, another from San Sebastián to Brive la Gallairde and last day from Brive la Gallairde back to London; are all of these routes available with the Interrail pass? Thank you
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?
Eurail pass scam?
Hi, I purchased a eurail pass for my trip travelling throughout Europe for 4 weeks. I thought this would save stress and money however when I arrived for my first train to Paris I was unable to make it on any of the trains and had to purchase a ticket anyway. My question is how can I avoid this happening for other cities where I may possibly be stranded without accommodation. The train company were not affiliated and could not help. There is no personal customer service making me think this pass / company is a total rip off!!
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
How to add a shared trip to a pass
HI all sorry this may have been asked a million times before. I have purchased rail passes for myself and my family. I have created a series of journeys for my trip and added it has registered against my pass. I have then shared my trip to my family and they can see the itinery but cannot add it to their pass. There is no option in the app to “add” a shared trip to their “my trip” or to associate thier pass with the trip details. Do we really need to add each journey individually on their respective “my trip”. ?? I would have thought it would be a simple share the trip option to add shared trip to my passplease help ? we have a week before we travel !! Thanks in advance.
Ambiguous reservation system
I don't know if member's are aware, that if you book Amsterdam to London. Eurail have no direct trains, but you have to book 2 separate trains, one from Amsterdam to Brussels either IC or Thalys, change in Brussels and go through security, before boarding Eurostar.I got caught out by the website and finished up with a Brussels to London ticket. I have to now book at extra cost Amsterdam to Brussels with all the hassle of security in Brussels, and making sure my train arrives early enough. But I can't do this until 90 days before.I have tried to cancel or reschedule my trip through both Eurail and Eurostar to no avail, they just don't want to know.I reckon they take your money then abandon you.Be careful with booking on the Eurail website.
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
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
Activating for reservation
I bought eurail global pass for 5 flexible days in a month on 9 April 2023 on Klook app. I plan to travel London to Paris on 27 May 2023 and the train requires seat reservation. I am required to activate my pass on Eurail app to reserve a seat. If I reserve my seat now on 10 April 2023 for travel on 27 May 2023, will I be using up my one month validity start right now until 9 May 2023 or the one month validity only starts when I board the train on 27 May 2023?
Activate Journey or link to Pass
Hi Fellow travellers, I am struggling a bit with the APP and as with other users concerned about my planned travel.I successfully activated my account and created my 1st trip. I managed to link that to my pass a few days ago - we take our 1st trip tomorrow.I have since created several other journeys but cannot link them to my Pass.THERE IS NO TOGGLE BUTTON TO ACTIVATE. So while it may be prudent to not link until ready to travel but to have no toggle button suggests that I will not be able to link when ready.Thanks in advance
Eurail Pass for an American going between GER-AUT
Hi, I am asking for a friend who is US American based in Germany for years, who wants to purchase the Eurail Pass. He intends going between Germany and Austria several times back and forth. 1.) He also has a German residency and can purchase an Interrail pass. But adding Germany as resident country makes it impossible going several times back and forth between Germany and Austria, right?2.) If he is purchasing the Eurail Pass, is there the same restriction? Thx upfront!
