arghhh! I think i'm in trouble, with home country travel rules
I live in Germany, not so far from the Dutch border. I want to travel to Italy and France this summer, but start from Amsterdam as the nightjet starts from there. I rashly booked an expensive holiday house last night, after working out that me and the family could have some fun with an Interrail ticket and visit a few places on the way. I went to book the Interrail ticket and saw the home country travel rule. Oh! Now I think it might not be possible to holiday as i’d planned so I really need your help. The plan is to leave on a Wednesday, from where I live in Germany (near the Dutch border) to Amsterdam to catch the nightjet NJ40295 that evening. This goes direct to Munich overnight, arrives Thursday morning. I need to be in Munich for the connection to Milan on Thursday evening, also a nightjet, so arriving on Friday morning. Have I already reached my home country travel limit? I mean, i’m just leaving the country, but it takes a long long time in that direction!And I still need to g
Does my itinerary count as 4 travel days and how to go around the inbound/outbound rule?
HI there, I hope you can help. This will be a really long post so if it’s too much to read all of it, the main questions are:(1) does my itinerary below actually count as 4 travel days (based on using night trains)?(2) I think I need 3 journeys on 3 separate days in total, within my own country. This apparently isn’t allowed on the Interrail ticket. Is there any way round this, for example if you’re using nightjet and there’s no other route (Germany’s pretty big)?Long version:I’ve booked a holiday house on the South Coast of France (near Cannes), and we decided this year that it’s too far by car, and we won’t take the plane. So we’ll take the train - great! And a sleeper, as it’s a long journey, what fun!I think i’ve figured out the easiest route now, which was complicated by long journeys needing night trains and then seeing a stop in Italy makes sense to add some extra holiday. I was getting ready to book the 4 day Interrail passes for the family, but i’ve just discovered a rather aw
Travel in the UK
Hello! Two of my friends and I have Interrail Global Passes and have already chosen the flex travel option. We had previously won the passes via the DiscoverEU contest before the pandemic and are now hoping to finally travel! I read on the website that travelling in the UK is possible despite the Brexit restrictions. However, can we only travel in England and Scotland without entering an EU country? Do our passes differ from the ones which can be bought through the Interrail website? I mean, is there any additional obligation from our part to travel in an EU country or do the same things apply for all Interrail Global Passes? Our home country is Greece by the way. Thanks in advance!
Travel day cannot mark because it was past
HiI took the trains from Orbetello Italy on 9/1/2022 to Halle Saales Germany on 10/1/2022, in which:- Orbetello to Roma Termini (local train): I marked travel day 9/1/2022 and got QR code ticket-Roma Termini to Muenchen: night train, booked seat but forgot to mark in order to get QR code ticket-Muenchen to Halle Saales: forgot to mark in order to get QR code ticketThis morning, 10/1, when i remember, i tried to mark but it says the travel day is the past as in screenshot below. When I chose today, it says I already use all (4) days of travel. I sent email to customer service Interrail but the reply informed that they will get back to me within 2 days. Im on the train and I cannot waiy that much time.Is there any way to mark and get QR code ticket? Or can I use the QR code ticket for the trip from Orbetello to Roma termini as a proof of travel for remaining trains to Halle? Thanks
Trajet en train
Bonjour ! j’ai prévu un voyage interrail pour environ 16 destinations sur 2 mois avec donc le pass interrail 15 jours pour deux mois. Pouvons nous prendre autant de train que nous voulons sur une journée ? Par exemple pour un trajet Amsterdam - Berlin, quand il y a un changement ? Ou cela est compté comme deux voyages distincts et je perds donc du temps à utiliser sur mon billet ?

Day shown in Global pass
Hi, I have a question.i bought global pass for 4 days/1 month. I traveled 2 days and today im on the train. I want to mark today as 3rd day. However, as it is shown in the screenshot, i just have 1 day left (3/4), which is not true because i have not marked today as 3rd day yet. Im afraid if i mark it now, the system will deduct my last day (4th) which I will use to go back to Germany. Can you see and instruct me? Thanks
Best way to book travel for 5
I am organzing a group trip for 5 where two people are starting starting before three of us and then heading out earlier.Two will be traveling from Ediburgh to London. Then all five of us are traveling London to Paris. Then Paris to Slazburg. After 5 days we will all be traveling to Interlaken. After 5 days the same two will be traveling to Geneva. Three days later the other three of us are traveling to Zurich.What is the easiest way to be able to make the reservations for when all fice of us are traveling togther? It sounds like people have had trouble with that. Should I purchase all the passes so I can book the group travel? If so how easy will it be for the two that are traveling (partly) separately to make thier own reservations?And should we go with the electronic passes or the paper passes?I arranged travel for a group about 5 years ago but they were moslty minors and I went through Swiss Travel Centre so I did not make the reservations myself. Any help would be greatly apprecia

Interrail vs buying tickets separate
Hey guys, this year I want to travel through Portugal and Spain. I noticed it would be much cheaper to buy every ticket directly at the railway operations (260€ vs. 100€) 1. Do the train tickets always cost the same in Portugal/Spain in view of the time of purchase and the season?2. When are the tickets available for September? At the moment you can only buy tickets for February. 3. Why should I buy an interrail ticket instead of buying the train tickets separately? Thank you in advance. Regards, Carlos
App says "It looks like you are offline. Go online to see your passes" while I'm connected to internet
Hello. I have an urgent question/issue. My Eurail app keeps saying that "It looks like you are offline. Go online to see your passes", when I try to view my pass (QR code). The internet on my phone is working fine (both WiFi and mobile data). I have restarted the app, restarted my phone, disabled the app and enabled it, but still getting the same error when trying to access my pass. Can anyone help?
Greek Island Pass; Travel Around Cyclades and Italy
Hi, So I’m going travelling this summer and from June I’ll be with a friend around Athens and the Cyclades and then going to Bari going: Athens - Paros - Ios - Santorini - Bari (I understand there isn't a direct ferry from Santorini to Bari) My question is whether any of the following options are recommended:Getting either a 4 or 6 day greek islands pass not getting a pass and booking the trips now through blue star ferries or emailing ahead to reserve waiting until I'm there and then buying them at the portI usually like to be organised and I’m really trying to keep costs down without compromising too much of the trip, if anyone has any suggestions for how I should approach this or any additional help on the subject area, it would be greatly appreciated!!
Is it possible to set and change destination and times during my travel day (assuming my intended trains don't need reservations of course)?
Hey,I have a question concerning the e-ticket of a mobile pass, for a continuous Global Pass.I was wondering, how spontaneously can I decide on a destination and time, is it possible to set and change these even during my travel day? Assuming my intended trains don't need reservations of course.So, for example if I travel within Germany and on a given day I want to go Hamburg — Berlin, and I know that on the same day I also want to go from Berlin to Hannover, but I don't know when beforehand. So, can I freely decide on the exact train just shortly before its departure and edit my trip and ticket during the day? Or does everything have to be set in advance the day before?I hope I'm not double asking this question. But as the FAQ said "Remember, each travel day has a separate ticket, so if you’re continuing your journey the following day, you’ll show a different ticket." I was wondering if it was possible to make changes during the day.Thank you!

Lost phone with Mobile Pass. Trip starts tomorrow, unused. Will buy a new one. Want a refund of old lost one.
Hello, I lost my old phone with my 10-day Mobile Pass registered on it. I was supposed to start using it on January 2nd, but when trying on my new phone could not register it. I have not yet used it and want to start traveling tomorrow. So I need a refund on my old Mobile Pass. I will buy a new Eurail Pass to start traveling tomorrow so my old pass will not be of use to me. Given I NEVER used it and started to request my special case since the day before the original “start date”, I am in position to request a full refund (also have the 100% refund insurance). Thank you in advance.
What if my identity card expires and I get a new one before I start my travels with interrail?
As said in the title, my ID will expire next year and I’ll probably get a new one before I start my travels. I’d like to take the opportunity and buy my Interrail ticket with the current discount though.Is it possible to register/buy a ticket now and ‘update it’ to my new ID once I have it?
Change my travel days
I wanted to go tomorrow from Maastricht to Barcelona and can not do the trip right now because of the covid variant omicron. When I want to delete my trip to deactivate my ticket and keep it for the next months, It is not possible. It was not possible to deactivate the pass before, as I just received the cancelation of my airbnb in Barcelona due to an infection of my hosts. I already canceled the reservations I had for some trains. I would appreciate it a lot If you could answer me quickly, as I really want to do this trip when the whole pandemic situation permits it and it will be impossible for me to spend 180 Euros again. Would appreciate your help a lot!
What Pass do I neeed to travel for a return trip Stuttgart- Rennes?
Hello, New to using this service. I need to go from Stuttgart to Rennes on the 31st and back on the 02.01.Now, do I need to buy the global Pass if i understand correctly because i am travelling from one country into another one. Or is there a cheaper version? Cause i just need 2 travel days, not 4.Also, If i get the travel pass digital version, does that work on a laptop? Or do i need a mobile phone? Cause my phone is broken currently. Kind Regards,Baconsoup
