I’m pretty overwhelmed trying to figure out what passes may be necessary for June 2023 trip for 4 travelers (2 adults, 2 youth). Could someone assist? Generally, I think my questions are:Do we need Global Passes, and what exactly will it cover/not cover of the travel locations below? If not, what do you suggest? Is an extra pass required within Germany, Switzerland, Austria, or Italy? Are there certain times or lines which might require actual reservations? If so, should I book those far in advance or a couple days prior? Below is our itinerary:Day 1 (13 Jun 2023): Arrive at Vienna airport, get to Westbanhof (Might this be covered by Global Pass?), Day 2 - Vienna (will Global pass cover getting to and from Westbahnhof to Stephansplatz/Vienna?) Day 3 - Vienna to Salzburg Day 4 - Salzburg to Munich Day 4-5- In and around Munich (Does Global pass cover travel within Munich, To/From Dachau?) Day 6 - Munich to Zurich, then Zurich to Lucerne (This is where I get really confused. Are Switzerl
Hi Community Members,New to the community. Questions:Using 15 days in 2 months Eurail Global Pass, following queries:Florence to Rome before noon; then Rome to Rome Airport in the afternoon. Two trips same day - using one pass day or two pass days? Are reservation fees refundable? Is a reservation linked to a specific train? What happened you need to take a different train, can you transfer the reservation to another train?Sorry to the silly questions.
I have (already) bought a Eurail Global Pass for my upcoming trip to Italy (coming first time to Europe with my family including 2 kids). Budget is my BIG concern & I want to take full benefit of this pass (for cheap travel wherever possible).I am generally managing well (budget), however, concerned about traveling to (& within Italy) on this Pass. I have read that this pass is not much friendly in Italy (Tourist Trap etc, but I don’t want to buy another pass for Italy) and supports only Trenitalia and a few small other companies. The major routes that I want to travel (on different days) using this pass include:Switzerland to Rome (first use) - I am planning to reach Tirano, Italy (via Bernina Express) & then travel to Rome from here. However, this plan (using Bernina Express) is not FIXED & can be altered Rome to Florence (second use) Florence to Munich, Germany (third use) Munich to Milan (fourth use)So my questions are:I need help/guidance to find a cheap/free train
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.
Dear community,I wanted to activate my mobile pass in the app yesterday (last day to be activated), however, the app-activation unfortunately did not go through (seemed to be a technical issue). Now it just says the pass is expired in the app :(Is there any possibility to get the expired pass re-activated for the remaining time of the 3months? Unfortunately, I could not find a phone number to talk to somebody in person and could only send a general request. Please help - I don’t want to lose my Interrail pass before even starting my trip :(Thank you all!Marc

Why is that? please solve it soon
Hello everyone, at the moment I don’t understand which bus rides are free for me to use and which are not. Can I add a random bus route to “My Trip” for example in Cornwall, UK? The ride is not available in the app, but could I simply add it manually? There is sometimes no train available, so I am supposed to take the bus.Thank you for your help in advance!Anna
My daughter and I have a 4 day in 1 month global pass. We have travelled from Manchester to Euston, St Pancras to Paris, Paris to Barcelona and Barcelona to Alicante. We travelled over 3 days. We will fly back to Manchester from Alicante, leaving one travel day left on our passes. Is there a definitive answer please as to whether we can use our last pass day once we return home? I have asked a similar question previously, but felt using the last day on a separate trip was a little frowned upon, but it’s a free day on my pass, that I’ve paid for and could still use. Could we travel to London from Manchester, for example, using the pass, and then pay for a single ticket the next day to get home?
If I purchase a 4 days of travel global pass and travel from Manchester to London on a Thursday evening and then London to Paris on the Friday morning is that ok or does my trip leaving my country have to all be on the same day? I am trying to arrive in Geneva by mid afternoon on a Friday and so need to take the early morning Eurostar to do this

I would be visiting Switzerland in 2 weeks (first time) for a total of 4 full days (& 5 nights). We are a family of 4 (2 Adults & 2 kids of 6 & 9).I have a Eurail Global Pass, which I want to utilize to the fullest during my stay. While Switzerland is so beautiful, with so many places to visit, I have become very confused as to how to plan my literary there.I want to use Glacier, Bernina & Glacier Expresses as well as utilize other regional trains & ‘included boats’ to visit as many places as possible.Now as already stated, I am so confused that I am not able to make a plan as what to do each day. With a blank slate & no plan, I would really appreciate if you can give your suggestions from experience as to how to plan my 4 days, wrt above mentioned aspects.I am more interested in utilizing the 100% included transport means, while I will make plans for the paid stuff (like cable cars etc) separately/afterward.My place of Residence is in Geneva. I know I am locate
Good evening,We bought a 6 days Greek Island Pass. The Greek Islands Pass Guide notes that it is impartant to book ferries in the order of use, the date of the first ferry is the activation date of the pass. We already booked a ferry from Italy tot Greece, but didn't need tot give our Pass number. For booking domestic ferries the pass number is needed. How do I know for sure that the system knows that we already booked a ferry and the pass is activated on the Italy - Greece crossing and not on the first domestic ferry (and we have to pay for the Italy - Greece crossing)? Thanks in advance,Martin
Hello,I’ll be travelling around Sweden this Easter. This will include a ride from Sundsvall to Gävle, where I’m looking to travel with X-Tåget.In Rail Planner, it says that the 08:41 service with X-Tåget from Sundsvall to Gävle on 8 April is “not in pass network”. I decided to check this directly with the provider so I emailed X-Trafik, who runs this service, and their Customer Service department confirmed by email that they do in fact accept Interrail on X-Tåget.I’m a bit puzzled why the app says “not in pass network” but I’m letting you know now in case you want to update this for a future app upgrade.Question: Am I right to assume that if I want to travel on the X-Tåget with my interrail pass, I’ll simply have to add this journey as a manual entry?Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi everyone, I was trying to book seat reservations for some UK trips, however, when it comes to this stage (shown on the picture below), the page doesn't refresh when I click the “continue” button. Has any one had the same issues of it’s just me? I did switch to different browsers and it was the same.
Hi to everyone!We are planning the following trip:Friday:hometown (location Germany) to Hamburg22.03h Hamburg night train to Stockholm 9.57h (arrival Saturday)Saturday:18.08h Stockholm to Narvik 12.40h (arrival Sunday)But this ‘costs’ only 2 days of the ticket, as the last train is a nighttrain and is an overnight connection and the journey ends with this train.The journey back:Friday:15.11 Narvik to Stockholm 10:09h (arrival Saturday)17:34h Stockholm to Hamburg 8:56h (arrival Sunday)Hamburg → hometown (in Germany)But here it ‘costs’ 3 days, because there is another change of train in Germany travelling home.But, to sum-up, the 5-day ticket would be ok. Am I right?Thank you for your help and feedback!Maybe some stupid questions but I never did Interrail before (although travelling a lot with trains).Bye, Stephan
I purchased a 3 day in a month France mobile pass for myself and a friend. The first travel day went smoothly. We purchased a TGV to Paris on the second day and printed the barcode. However, the rail app will not let me add it to my pass. Also I put in a journey from Paris to Bayeau In September but railplanner will not allow me to add to pass. the third day is September 16. A search shows nothing available on railplanner but it is available on the sncl website. ((Bayeau to Paris). Any suggestions?this is my first trip using eurail.
