Hi everybody, I’m new on this community.Maybe my question has already been asked I mean...but I try anyway.My daughter goes to Stockholm with Erasmus to study at the university. So we are planning a family trip to Sweden from France at the end of August.I understand (thanks to the different conversations and questions about that) that the global pass is required because it is just a round trip to Sweden.But when I'm looking for the best pass for my travel “Trouvez le pass ferroviaire le mieux adapté”, the one country is proposed! Maybe I didn't understand or didn't do something right, or is it just confusing?*Thank you in advance to confirm to myself, if the global pass is the good way, and if the request on the website to find the good pass for the good trip is really confusing.Fabien
I bought a 10 day in 2 month Eurail pass for use in December and January. I used 3 days of this in Europe fine then came to UK. With the frequent rail strikes (there have been more strike days than non-strike days over the past three weeks!) I have not been able to use the pass for my travels. Instead I have ended up buying bus or flight tickets.Is there any way to do anything about this with Eurail? Perhaps refund the unused days, or extend the pass somehow. I will be able to use perhaps two more days of the pass, but it will end with several unused days just because of the strikes. I suspect I won’t be able to do anything (claiming “delay” compensation is not relevant as it simply stopped travel, not delayed it!), but perhaps there is something I can’t think of!
When looking for a train between Lund central and Copenhagen before the 10th of December you can take the Öresundståg without reservation but after the 10th of December that is no longer an option and you have to take a SJ high-speed train (for which I have to make a reservation, but I can't make a reservation through interrail, so I want to avoid it). I checked a local traffic app (Skånetraffiken), so I know the Öresundståg is still operational. So can I trust that the interrail pass works on the Öresundståg eventhough its not in the timetable or what is going on?
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?
Hi,Received this today and apparently I'm not the only one. This is a big communication error, is there are a plan to send a correction email ? @Camilo. @Mukhammad My passes are not expiring any time soon.- bought in January 2023, used in July-August- bought in November 2023, not yet activatedI'm sure this will confuse a lot of people who might opt for a refund right away.
Hi,we purchased a euro pass for 7 people however we are now having issues reserving seats for travel in Dec 23 & Jan 2024.Does anyone know what our options are if we can’t reserve seats? Will more seats become available in November ? any advice is appreciated thanks
Hi all, I have a 3 month global pass and used my outbound travel to start this journey.I’m coming back to France and probably using my inbound day end of this month.I’d like to then travel again in june and take a brussels to london eurostar.I have read here and there that the app detects that you enter your COR (country of residence) so I’m wondering if my plan will work or not. It would be quite a pity i guess if it were the case. Thanks in advance for your helpful advice!
It seems that you can’t book a train from Olsztyn in Poland to Berlin in Germany with Interrail. For the past two months, the interface has told me that “maybe” there was no seats available anymore for Pass owners. But also that I needed to wait 30 days before the trip scheduled date for trains in Poland to become available. Now I am 30 days before the trip, and still I get the same message. It would be more honest to say that they don’t support some trips. Which makes the Pass much less advantageous.
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!
Planned a 3 day trip from Sheffield (UK) to Frankfurt and back with a stop over in London. I am due to travel today and have just activated my pass only to be told that I have to leave the UK and return to the UK in single journeys.I have accidently used today as a travel day and I can’t undo it even though I have not travelled yet. Obviously I wish to pay for my Sheffield to London train separately and use the pass for London to Frankfurt. Eurail have no phone number so now I don’t know what to do. Any help appreciated! Many thanks,Gwilym
Good morning, we are two people who started the interrail on August 2 and had a planning made, where the first train we wanted to take was at night from Milan to Munich at 21:20.The problem is that the reservation is mandatory and does not let me book because I think it is full.I have several questions: How do I know if there are any seats left? Can I book at Milan station when I arrive? Is there any way to enter without booking even on the ground? Thank you so much,Pilar
Hey, I’m from the UK and me and my friend are hoping to go on a small interrail trip this summer. But I’m struggling on which pass to get, I’m travelling from my home in the UK to obviously start in London (not staying just to get the euro star) and we plan to go to amsterdam, krakow, Budapest and vienna then obviously back home. I understand krakow and Budapest are quite far so may need to add a stop in Berlin or something there. This is provisional but with the pass I am confused to wether me travelling to and from london counts as a travel day. And what pass would be best. We didn’t know whether the 4 or 5 day pass, we still aren’t sure if we will add Berlin but either way, we just need some guidance on what pass to get and more info about getting to and from london with the pass as we also have to make a reservation on that train to amsterdam.

Hello, we are on our way from Duisburg to Berlin on a ICE train (with seat reservations). We have a interrail global pass 1st class. Just now the ticketinspector told us this ticket is not valid on ICE products but only IC and lower class products. we traveled before by ICE train and never had any problem. Is it true interrail is not valid?kind regards, Robin Cremers
My app says my validity period is "15 Dec 2022 - 14 Jan 2023" Does that that mean I have until the midnight of the 15th of Jan to use my pass? I just want to make sure because I plan on taking a train the day of the 14th and don't want to have pay for the train when I can plan around it.
I have a Masters degree but I am really struggling to work out how to use the online app for my mobile pass. It doesn’t seem intuitive at all. What is the difference between a trip and a journey, for example? How do I add journeys/trips to my pass? Why do I need to duplicate trips to add them for my family? I thought I had added the first day and I can see the tickets there but today I am getting repeated notifications telling me my first travel day is tomorrow but I haven’t added any journeys. I don’t understand. As we leave in the morning I’m worried we’ll be getting on the train without a valid ticket. Is there some clear information somewhere or someone who can help, please? I really wish I’d just bought a paper pass, good old fashioned paper and pen I understand. Thank you!
Hey! I’m currently in Athens and I would like to buy the greek islands pass. The problem is that it’s not possible to buy the mobile pass for the greek islands, and that if I order it, it’ll take took much time to get here. I need it asap… Is there a place in Athens where I can buy this pass? Thanks in advance
I have two Eurail Global 1st class passes that I plan on using starting april 5th. I can not book one reservation on trips that needs a reservation. It appears the passes are already sold out. If I go to the country railway page it shows plenty if seats. This is very frustrating for two reasons 1) the ridiculous amount of time I have wasted trying to book reservations and then realizing I shouldn't have boughten a pass since it is already sold out. My question is how can I get a refund?
