I am trying to book a train for my son and friend from London to Paris in a few weeks and every train every day says Prices Unavailable. I find that very hard to believe, a Thursday in late April? Not sure why they bought passes when availability is limited. Can someone let me know if I’m getting something wrong.
Hey guys, I have a question.I want to start in zurich and my final destination is Salzburg. After that I might travel 1-2x in austria from place to place and then I want to go back from Salzburg to Zurich.Is this all possible with the one country pass? or do I have to buy a separate ticket to/from the border?So for example from Zurich to Bregenz and on the way home from Bregenz to Zurich?Thanks for your help!
I will be booking a mobile pass for my spouse and I for our upcoming trip. From what I’ve read here, both of our passes can be kept on one device. How would we go through scanned gates at stations with the one device with both of our passes on it, or would it be easier to have our individual passes on our own devices?When I am booking/reserving trips on my device do the booked trips automatically go to both passes, or do we need to make a separate booking/reservation for each of our passes?
Moin,We are planning a group trip with about 12 young people (12-14 years) and 2 supervisors to France. We only need the trips for the outward journey and the return journey.Does it make more sense for the participants to organize their Interrail ticket themselves, or does central booking make more sense?What happens if a participant gets sick and doesn't even start the journey? Can individual tickets also be canceled?Can seat reservations also be made as a group? Again, the question, could individual reservations be cancelled?The trip is planned for May 2023. Can seats be reserved before buying an Interrail ticket, or is it tied to the ticket? For the German area, the reservation should be possible with the change to the winter timetable. (Right?) From when is pre-reservation possible for the French area?Thanks for tips and opinions from a total newbie. Kind regards
I’m using my Eurail pass for a trip from London Kings Cross to Edinburgh Waverly on Oct 2 and returning October 5, 2023. It looks like a strike and maintenance will cause “reduced services” and possibly some cancelled trains. I made seat reservations via GWR a couple of months ago for both trips. Typically, when there is a strike or maintenance causing service disruptions, do Eurail pass holders get bumped in favor of ticket holders who have paid full fair? Or can I count on my seat reservations (which were free) to be valid? If the train I am scheduled to take gets cancelled, but there are other trains operating, are my Eurail pass and seat reservations going to help me get on another train or are pass holders out of luck when strikes and maintenance curtail services? I have first class global pass, does that help? Any insights would be appreciated. What a way to start my 3-month journey!
I have never done interrail/eurail before and I’m considering using it for an upcoming trip. I can’t seem to find an answer for the following (specific) scenario.Scenario: I have a 3 year old. I know she doesn’t need her own pass, and I know that I can get her the (free) pass for 4-11 year olds if I want to make a seat reservation. We want to take the train from London to Paris, and I don’t mind keeping her on my lap.Question: is seat reservation mandatory for my child on “seat reservation mandatory” train rides? Has anyone here been in this specific scenario? I’ve read a lot that seems to indicate she doesn’t need her own reservation, but nothing that explicitly says she won’t.
Hi guys :)My dad and I are travelling through Europe from the 2nd June. I heard it’s recommended to book train rides up to 12 weeks beforehand. How can I do this without activating the passes yet? When I look up train rides theres only an option to save to journey but not actually book them. Or do we not have to book train rides that don’t require seat reservations? Can you not book without activating pass online? I’m a bit confused.Also we are travelling from Naples to Pisa at one point and when I look up that trip on that date there is no trains at all? Is that normal or is it too early?
Hi all,I’m a German student residing in the UK on a tier 4 student visa. Over Christmas, I want to travel to Germany (and some other countries) using an Interrail Global Pass. When booking the ticket, the form asked for my country of residence. My residence country is the UK, yet, I read in the T&C that I would need to prove my residence at some point. As an EU citizen, I only have digital proof, an e-visa, to prove my residence in the UK. I also have an official document from the German authorities confirming my de-registration from my old residence and indicating my new residence in the UK. However, I don’t have physical proof from the UK authorities of my residence. In related threads, people suggested setting the country of residence to the country of citizenship (in my case Germany) instead. However, I want the one outbound and one inbound journey to apply to my actual country of residence, i.e., the UK.Has anyone dealt with a similar issue and found a solution? Thanks!
Hi. I am starting my Europe travels on 23rd of June 2024. I know there are discounted passes for sale at the moment and I’ve read they’re valid for 11 months after purchase. However, when I scroll down to the bottom it says, ‘For trips starting before June 1’ How do I purchase a pass valid for my dates? Thanks!

Hellomy husband and I are both over 60 and want to use the trains to travel fromBristol to Kitzbuhel in Austria. We think London to Paris and overnight stay then on to Munich the next day and overnight stay then on to Austria. We will do a similar pattern on return. We ain to travel in about 10 days. Do we need Eurail pass after Brexit. any advice or suggestions will be received. We don’t even know which pass we need. Will we be too late to get train reservations. We fancied an adventure to visit friends instead of putting up with airports. Thank you in advance
Hey Interrail Community! So as the title says there has been a sudden death in near family. This has caused us to end our travels immediately and take a plane home. Since this is a force majeure, could there be a possibilty for a partial refund? We have only traveled for 10 days out of two months, and only used 3 travel days, and it dosen’t seem like we’ll be going again any time soon.
so i want to go from Barcelona to Hamburg, and i know i have to make a few stops, in the DB navigator says it is Barcelona-Paris-Frankfurt-Hamburg, does anyone knows if i take this route does it counts as 1 trip? i have the 4 days in 30 days pass (:

I live in the US, am over 70 years old, and will travel to Europe later this year. I love trains and was thinking of buying a Eurrail pass while still in the US but I recently read in a Lonely Planet travel book that if one doesn’t travel by rail VERY FREQUENTLY, then it’s not worth buying a Eurrail pass. You see, I might stay in some city - say Paris or London - for more than 1 week. If I did that, then I’d lose money if I bought and used a Eurrail pass. Correct?? How often does one have to use the Eurrail pass in order to not lose money? Is using a Eurrail pass every few days best in order to get one’s money worth for the purchase of it?
I have created 4 travel days in the My Trip page, with the necessary journeys and train times all showing. It has created a map for me. However when I go to the My Pass page it says no journeys added and I cannot see how to add these to this pass.
