I live in Sandy Bedfordshire.On my 1st day’s journey, I intend to travel from Sandy to London St. Pancras International by Thameslink. Then on to Amsterdam on the Eurostar.I will also be making my return journey via Eurostar but from Paris upon my final day’s travel.My question is, while I appreciate that the Thameslink portion of these journeys count as outbound and inbound domestic journeys and are limited to one each way where the Interrail pass is concerned. Are the Eurostar Journeys also counted in the outbound and inbound journeys.The Eurostar journeys start from St Pancras which is in the UK, but as you effectively have to cross the UK border in order to board the train, is this counted as a European journey that begins and ends outside the UK, and therefore not included in the outbound or inbound restrictions and as such, not limited to one journey in each direction?My question also includes the cross channel ferry service from Harwich to Hool of Holland
Hello,Slightly confused about two things, if someone can help..First, I see posts from 9-10 months ago saying how you need to reserve a ferry ticket through email. Is this still true in 2022? There are online ferry websites of companies that cover the pass that offer tickets where you can enter a discount if you have Interrail pass, directly while buying the ferry ticket (like 20-30%). However, I didn’t see the option for the travel day pass discount.Also if someone can answer, this page here says that the 4-day travel pass only cover “Four FREE domestic trips” for Blue Star Ferries, not 4 days. I’m not sure which is true, or if I’m reading it wrong or if it’s a typo.
Country pass ticketHello everyone, i have bought a country pass ticket to portugal, i want to go in the end of july. But when i check out my trip for like say june(my bad for not doing so earlier). I see that i need to reserve seats for every train wich will be the cost of my ticket in the first place. And some trains can’t be boarded with country passes? I am just really confused, does anyone have any advice on what to do?
I ordered the 50% off pass for the 50 year anniversary - money has been paid and I’ve got a confirmation code but my actual ticket never arrived. I reached out to support and their phone didn’t work, and so tweeted them only to find that it was a different interrailing company offering it. emailed support and they’ve just said ‘we’re busy processing things’ but it’s been a week and I’ve now not heard from them for a few days. Am meant to be starting interrailing next week but how can I without the pass! Beginning to panic that it’s a scam somehow. has anyone got any suggestions/ had this issue?

Me and my buddy won an interrail ticket each recently (yeah us!) and we’re currently planning out our journey. However, my friend let me know about something he found online, specifically that there is a way to take people with you, who do not have their own interrail ticket? The general information we’ve gathered is pretty vague, something about those people being born between specific dates and the like, but I wanted to ask, is this information valid? Is it possible to take people who don’t have interrail with you on your travels, and use one ticket for all of you?
I already tried to reach out to Interrail via mail, but there was one reply more than a week ago. They sent an automatic reply and ask if my concern is still ongoing. I immediately replied and told them about my concern again. Since then nobody reached out for me. My problem is, my connected ID is not mine of my home country it is the residence permit of switzerland. I wanted to use Zürich as my place to stay during the Interrail. But on my first trip, when I actived my online pass, I had to connect my residence permit, since my german passport was at home. Now I cannot use any trains in Switzerland anymore because of in and outbound. It would be really keen, if anyone would be able to tell me how to reach out to interrail. The service station of SBB in Zürich cannot help me, since they have no access to online tickets yet. Thank you very much in advance!
I asked customer service about activation of global pass a week ago and this situation is emargency for me but I have not received response yet. I am traveling using this ticket now, and I am almost going to finish my trip. When can I get a response from customer service? Although I also texted message to personal one she has not reply as well.
Hi, i have a 4-days global pass (mobile) and my trip will start in a month. I've created a trip and linked the pass into the app, with all my journeys. My 4 travel days are: 25 june, 26 june, 30 june, 2 july (they of course comprehend the outbound and inbound trips). I've never activated none of the qr codes shown in the app.So, as you can see in these 2 screenshots, there might be a problem:Yet I'm not sure, can anybody tell me if is it normal or not?Thanks!
I have bought a global pass when it was on sale. I entered wrong country of residence (Germany). I am now in Germany but I am here only for a 2 months language course. I have not activated my pass yet and it was a mobile pass. I would like to travel in Germany freely like others.
Hi! I’m wondering how the 30day interrail ticket actually works. I would like to know if I am allowed to travel from my country A, to country B and then come back to A for a while and then continue my journey to country C? Hard to explain but basically can I go to my own country in the middle of my journey or does the ticket end whenI go back to my country?
Hey everyone,I requested the refund of my pass with “Plus” option in March, since our desired destination is currently pretty close to an active war zone.Unfortunately there seems to be a problem with the refund on your side. I really understand, that you are receiving a lot of request these days, but it should be possible for a company to do a wire transfer within more than two months. The E-Mails I received in this matter yet only told me, that the issue is still pending - I can figure that out by looking at my bank account.This is a really frustrating situation, because it is about the budget for our vacation. We are disappointed that the support team has not been able to give us any more information yet and hope that we have more luck here.Best regards,Bene
Hi, I accidentally bought the wrong pass and so I followed the steps on the interrail website to exchange it for the correct pass. I sent my request over two weeks but all I’ve received is a string of confusing emails saying my requests have been merged and most recently an email asking to rate their customer support. I’m not sure if this means my request is being processed or if it’s somehow gotten lost.Should I send another request? I’ve put off doing this as I don’t want to confuse the matter further.It would be Ideal to talk to interrail customer support directly but I can’t find any contact number. I’m currently travelling and will be needing the money from the refund very soon. Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks
Hello, actually my friend and I are travelling in the north of Poland, and the controller said that our QR code is invalid. Even if he read all informations bellow the QR Code, he doesn’t believe us and ask to pay another ticket. How can we manage this situation ? He didn’t know the interrail pass, the QR Code is invalid, and he thought that we lied to him about are ticket, which were valid ! please help us..
Hello everybody! I have a question: my itinerary starts form Milan and then goes to Montpellier, Barcellona,Seville and it finishes in Madrid (no return to milan); globally the travel days are 4 so, should I buy the 185€ pass (the one with 4 days/month) right? Thank you all, Rebecca
HelloI have just received my interrail tickets by mail, however I have not received either the maps or the wristbands.I would like to know what should I do to receive the complete package?I'm from Lisbon, Portugal and I´m wondering if I can go to Santa Apolónia station to receive the rest of my order.

Hello everyone, My name is Carlo van Groeningen and I am a staff member at a scouting group in Leiden (NL). This summer we really want to go to Barcelona to discover this beautiful city. It is the first time that I organize such a long trip so I need some help from others. I want to take the train from the Netherlands to Barcelona with 18 children (15 to 18 years old) and 3 staff members between the ages of 25 and 27.The boarding station in the Netherlands does not matter that much. The journey itself does. I saw online that there were options through paris, but then you had to go to another station in paris. That seems a bit scary to me. So I prefer to go via Brussels.We would like to leave on 7 or 8 August and return to the Netherlands on 14 August. I'm not really sure what our best options are to buy. Hopefully someone can help with that.Does someone know what I should buy and the prices.Kind regards Carlo
Hi, Can I ask if Champion Jet 2 is part of your fleet and can be used on the Greek interrail island hopping ticket. I am looking at buying the interrail ticket for my son of 15 years and we will book direct. Are there any extras on the interrail Greek ferry ticket .ThanksGeraldine
