Hi all, I am planning to Intrerrail for a month in Europe and I have few questions that has kept me confused therefore coming to you for help. I am a Non-national resident of UK, have been granted a refugee status in the UK and have travel document. I am planning to go to Austria, Switzerland and Italy. Only Austria that I need visa for. My questions are: Should I get a Interail or Eurail pass as a resident of UK? Does UK still count as Europe for Interail? If not, will Global pass give me access to travel from London to Europe and then back? If you have a travel document and have visited to these countries, please feel free to share your experience with the interail etc. Looking forward to hear and thanks so much in advance! A
Hola como están?. Les cuento el problema que estoy teniendo, sucede que hice la planificación de mi viaje con un pase por Europa de 5 días. Resulta de que organice todo en la aplicación que tienen y el problema es que no se si reserve los asientos ya que tengo los días planeados ya en la aplicación. ¿Me cobraran el mismo día con el QR?¿Como sabré si tendré un asiento asegurado?¿Estate haciendo mal algo?.Muchas gracias ojalá me puedan ayudar.
Hello, I have the France-Germany friendship One Country Pass Interrail Ticket (7 days pass).I plan to visit Munich and I’m wondering if it’s possible to also travel to Austria (to Innsbruck) with this pass as one day of travel ?Also, will the Germany pass still be available when I come back to Munich (In my trip, it will be the 6th of 7th journey). Moreover, will I still be able to use the last day of my trip to my outbound journey to France (to Paris) ? Thank you in advance for your answers.Vincent
Hello,I have purchased a Eurail Global Mobile Pass (5 Days) flex through Rail Europe to use for travel in September & October.I have reserved seats for travel in Switzerland and into France, entered them in the My Trip section of the Rail Planner app.When I log onto the eurail site on my Macbook (easier to use at home) it tells me I have no trips planned. I guess they don’t “talk” to each other?If I enter the same trip on my Macbook will it cause complications on the Rail Planner App?Also when I go to the Bahn site (for example) I can find a way from Strasbourg to Bregenz to reserve seats but I cannot find how to avoid paying the full fare when just wanting to reserve seats?This is all new to me so I apologise for asking questions which must seem quite basic - I have looked through the linked help articles but perhaps I’ve missed something? Frankly after several days of trying to sort the process out I’m at the point of asking for a partial refund and just booking direct.So many ot
Hi everyone, I’m a swiss person planning to travel around from Basel, as I live here. I know that Badischer Bahnhof counts as Germany, which is very useful. I know that Basel SBB is also on the french boarder, but unfortunately in the app there is no option to pick SBB (France). Do you know if that still works, let’s say I travel from Basel SBB to Barcelona? Or would it be helpful to just pick a trip from St.Louis to Barcelona and pay the first little bit? Thanks for your help!
Dear fellow travelers,As a student from Stuttgart, I'm excited to be embarking on my first backpacking adventure using a Eurail Pass. However, I could use some help with a bit of confusion about the reservation process for the Bernina Express.I've added Chur to Tirano on my pass, and the Eurail website shows that I'm ready to board and can buy a seat reservation if I like, but it's not required. On the other hand, the Bernina Express website states that a seat reservation and public transport ticket are necessary for a fee, which can be purchased up to two months before the travel date. The tickets are not linked to the seat reservation and can be used independently.Now, here's where it gets tricky. Reservations for the day are completely booked, and I'm not sure whether to try and book a reservation or enjoy the journey without one. I've attached pictures of the Eurail and Bernina Express websites for your reference.As seasoned travelers, I'm hoping you can share your experiences and
Hello. I have the 4 days in 1 month global eurorail pass. I understand travel days must be selected on the pass prior to midnight of that day. I already have the travel day I know I will be travelling by train selected, however I am unsure of which train that day I will be taking, none of them require seat reservations. Am I able to select and add a journey on that day to my pass the day of the trip, or does it need to be in advance like adding travel days?Thank you.
Just for information - it turns out that while vy.no have cool new recliner seat/beds on their sleepers they are not included in the Interrail scheme so you have to book them at full price.With a 1st class pass at least - you can book a sleeper for 1000 NOK as a flat fee. this is good value. Or you can book a seat for free. Also good value, if not optimal for an overnight journey.On the leg that I wanted to book today there were no sleepers left so I asked about the lie-flat beds and the price would have been 1,949 NOK as they are not included in the scheme.I reckon this is probably just because the agreement hasn’t been updated as it makes no sense for 2 classes of travel to be bookable, but the 3rd one to be not bookable.
Hey all,As I understand, we have 2 inbound/outbound trips from our home country. However, in the Rail Planner app, I see that I have 3 days available. (I used 1 outbound journey and it shows 1/3)Has it been increased to 3, or is it a bug with the app?Thanks in advance!

Bonjour, Je voulais poser quelques questions vis-à-vis du pass, et je n’arrive pas à trouver de réponses spécifiques à mes questions. J’ai reçu le pass pour aller en allemagne pendant 7j offert par le gouvernement. Sachant que je veux aller en allemagne du 25 au 31 juillet (7j), je voudrais savoir si je pouvais par exemple emprunter un train à Europapark le 31 juillet soir et revenir dans ma ville d’origine française le lendemain matin. Ce qui fait que je prend le train le 31 juillet mais que je dépasse ce jour-là durant mon trajet. Comment cela est-il compris dans le trajet ? Si c’est bon faut-il toujours rester dans le même train, ou puis-je changer lors d’une correspondance durant la nuit du 31 juillet au 1er aout ?Je vous remercie pour vos réponses. Bonne journée, Alexis
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
Hii,I’m an Italian traveller and I have a question on how to travel in your own country: on the website i found that “you can use one travel day to leave your country of residence (outbound journey) and one travel day to return (inbound journey)”. But that’s my question: We strart our journey from Milan and we want to reach Munich, but we have to change train in Verona. Can we do this thing or we can only book one train?
I bought a 15 day Interrail Global Pass with unlimited rides. Unfortunately, I made a mistake when entering the time period of my trip when creating my passport in the app and only entered a period of 14 days. Now it is also displayed to me that my ticket would expire after 14 days. How can I set the period and thus the validity of my ticket to 15 days?
I went to book a seat reservation from Vienna to Krakow and it wants me to pay $10 to send a paper copy to my home address which is pointless as I am already in Europe, is there a way I can get it emailed to me instead and avoid paying the $10. I have booked seat reservations in the past and haven’t had this issue
HelloI have 4 passes on my old phone and want to transfer them to a new device. They have not been activated. I have read lots of your wonderful advice so feel confident that I can do this. However if I do this will 'My Trip' be visible on the new phone or will I have to do all that again?Thank you lovely travellers
Since the website says the 6-Day pass is a “paper pass”, I’m wondering if I will get hassle at the Greek ticket/ferry stations for using the mobile app to collect my tickets and board the ferries. If anyone has experience or can speak on whether I should be fine to collect my tickets at the Greek ferry stations with just the app and online reservations, would appreciate your help!
Hello everyone, please some of you nice people can help me to understand how does it works?Supposing I buy a 5 day pass.And the first journey is A multiple connections trip, like 4 trains including night ones, and some offers single bedroom cabins.
