Hi everyone,We have a Eurail Global Pass first class.I was trying to book Zurich Main Station to Milano Central (among other tickets) on the OBB website and have accidentally booked this leg as second class when we wanted to select first class.The ticket trip is to be on 14/09/2023 around 9am for 2x adults with Eurail Global Pass first class. Ideally we wanted the 9.33am train via Lugano. I didn’t realise that you can cancel reservations within 3mins of booking so I can’t cancel now, but I was hoping to just re-reserve first class seats and pay again for the reservation. However when I look online now on OBB the original journey we have is no longer available. Here is my initial booking from OBB: Here is the OBB website when I look now: I have tried on bahn.de, SBB and thetrainline.com as well to no avail.This journey isn’t even showing up on bahn.de or SBB now and thetrainline.com shows: Is anyone able to suggest how I can re-reserve first class seats for the original journey? Also I
Hello ! I recently came back home from a fantastic interrail trip in central Europe ! However I realized that I haven’t used all of my 7 days of travel during my trip (still one left). Furthermore, I’ve learned that this year Interrail is trying a new formula that gives 3 days of outbound/inbound journeys and I have used only two of them.As I need to go to Italy next week, I was wondering if someone knows wehther I can use my last day of travel (and my third day of inbound/outbound journey) to exit my country (Switzerland) and travel to my destination. Thank you for all ! :)
So I have a Eurail pass and intent to use it from mid-August of this year to mid-September. I see that (unsurprisingly) I need seat a seat reservation to take a night train from Augsburg Hbf to Budapest-Kelefoeld on Wednesday, September 6. The Eurail app says that a “Bed in Shared compartment” is 36 euros per person (reasonable). But the Eurail website that actually sells the reservations says $715 for a family of four (no where near 36 x 4 = $144).So I went directly to the rail company operating the train: “Euro Night”. The news is a bit better that to get a Couchette carriage Compartment” for all four of us it says 264 euros. That’s better than $715 of course, but no where in “Euro NIght” did I put my Eurail credentials, so I’m wondering if I am paying for the pass + seats. In other words, if Euro Night doesn’t ask for Eurail, what good is Eurail?Or am I missing something and there is a way to get it cheaper by just getting the seats (not the pass)?? I am already regretting a
I just bought my 8 day Danish Eurail pass, with the understanding that it would enable me to get discounted tickets on bus lines as well. But I do not see how to do this if everything has to be booked through the Rail Planner app. Any suggestions would be helpful!
Hi there !! planning my first Eurail/interrail journey and I'm unsure what pass to get -- I have an Irish passport, but I'm currently residing in the US and have no EU residency. I was planning on travelling on my Irish passport to avoid getting a visa but a lot of the FAQs say to purchase a pass accordance with your residency. please help! thanks!
Hello, I’ve searched for an answer to this and followed the advice given but have not been able to resolve the problem. I’m booked into accommodation in Strasbourg on 25th September and need to get from Lyon to Strasbourg that day.I’m just not able to reserve a seat on any of the sites I’ve looked. I can purchase tickets on some of the sites but not simply reserve seats. Obviously I don’t want to pay for tickets after already buying the Eurail Pass. Some trains are showing no tickets available (Rugby World Cup time) but if you are able to point me to how I can reserve pretty much any seats (need two) on a train that will get us to Strasbourg on that day I’d appreciate it greatly. We leave for Europe from Australia tomorrow!
Hey thereIf I was to travel from Amsterdam to Berlin, then from Berlin to Treviso/Italy...Then back to Amsterdam via Paris and Belgium- would it be worthwhile buying the Eurail Pass...We would need about 5 days on the train altogether...Would we need to reserve seats…? Are there trains going this route…? Can I purchase the pass when we arrive in Amsterdam…?We are doing this trip from 9 December to 30 December 2023 so do the trains run during this time…?Thank you for any help and advice...We are 2 adults...
Hello, We are traveling from Tirano to Chur with the eurail pass on a panoramic train without a reservation, hopeful to use the carriages that do not require reservations. Does anyone know how many carriages a regional train has? Perhaps slightly paranoid but how do we make sure we get a seat on a train without reserving the seats? Thanks!
Hi, I have lived in the UK for over 10 years with an indefinite leave to remain visa but I have a Japanese passport. I have been using the indefinite leave to remain visa to enter the UK and to prove my residence for the past decade at immigration. However I have seen some people say that I need some sort of European residence card to prove my residence and that the visa does not count. Is this true? The visa is the only evidence I have. Thanks in advance :)
Hello, do you know if I can have two Interrail Passes at the same time? I need a second pass for the next part of my travels. But during that time I am going back to Germany twice which means that I need one outbound and two inbound tickets. Is it possible to save one of my travel days of my first ticket to use ist for one of the inbound trips?
Hello I am planning a trip from Munich to Venice, then Florence, and finally back to Munich. To save money, I purchased an Interrail pass.When I tried to book seats using the Interrail website, I noticed that it costs more than 130 euros for 2 adults and one child under 7 for just a one-way journey from Florence to Munich.For the outbound travel, I managed to book a ticket using the DB website, which only cost me less than 9 euros.Now, I have a few questions:How can I book seats for my Interrail pass? Is there a specific website where I can book seats for my travel? Should I use the Interrail pass for traveling between Venice and Florence as well?I want to make the most cost-effective choices for my trip, so any advice or recommendations are welcome. Thank you!
Can I travel from Bordeaux in my home country to London (via Lille or Paris) using international pass? Although doable in a day, because I need to change trains to get on the Eurostar, does this count as more than one trip within my home country ? ie the first trip (Bordeaux to Paris or Lille would not be to cross the border).
Hello! I am planning to visit Rome, Florence, Venice, Amsterdam and Paris. I want to train from Rome to Florence, Florence to Venice, then fly to Amsterdam and train from Amsterdam to Paris - all within one month. I am hoping someone can help me in which pass will work the best for me 😄 Thanks so much!
New traveler here. Some friends and I are flying to Copenhagen in November. We want to also go to Sweden and Norway. It looks like the Scandinavia adult pass may be the way to go. Does this pass also let us take local trains (sorry for my lack of knowledge) or does it only permit travel between the countries.Also, if we are only traveling 5 out of 8 days would it be cheaper to buy train passes instead of the rail pass? THANKS!

Hello all, I have a query regarding my first class interrail ticket.The main reason I got a first class ticket was for long journeys. I have sciatica and it helps to have a bit more leg room. I thought it might also allow me to use lounges if I have a longer stay at a station.It's also such a small amount extra for first class (when already spending so much on a pass) that I thought "go on, spoil yourself".I know some trains will not have first class and for short journeys I am fine sitting anywhere. I started my journey today, travelling from Vilnius to Kaunas for the day (I started my journey in Helsinki but decided to do the Baltics by bus and have an extra 10 days).On the journey to Kaunas I made the ticket and the guard scanned my QR code with no issues.Fast forward to the evening, and travelling back to Vilnius the guard questions why I am sat in second class with a first class ticket.Am I supposed to travel first class if there is a first class seating area? The train is less
Do I need to add the journey to the pass (by switching the yellow button on) on the RailPlanner app before I board the train?Because from past trips I have done this, but when the ticket inspector asks for my interrail pass, the app has not registered the journey and I have to do this procedure again before showing my ticket. The app has these constant bugs.My friend got a fine because of this? Is this a possibility?
