Can/should i change my Interrail pass for a Eurail pass?
So I just bought an interrail pass for my wife and I. I am from the United States with a US Passport and my wife is from Argentina with an Argentinian passport. We currently live in Montenegro on tourist visas since our Residence has not been accepted yet. Will we have any problems using the interrail pass? Should we have bought a Eurorail pass? And if so, is there a way we can change it?
Mobile pass in Spain and France
Hi fellow travellers! I’m going to Spain and France soon with a Mobiles Pass and I’m interested to hear if you had a good experience. Did it work for you? I’ve only used paper until now so I want to make sure Mobile works in those countries.I know paper reservations are needed, but the pass itself - did you find that it was widely accepted on trains and ticket offices? Just worried staff may not be familiar with mobile yet.Thanks!
Do multiple train rides count for 1 travel day?
Hi, me and my wife are planning to go to Europe this May. If for example I bought a 5 day Eurail Global Pass for a month and I went to London from Paris using eurostar in the morning and went back to Paris from London in late afternoon, would that only count for 1 day? Meaning I still have 4 day eurail pass left? Thank you.

To justify that I am wiating for them. Thank you for your time and I hope you will understand my issue.
First time interrailer in need of some basic help.
So I just bought the global pass and have started to make my first bookings and need a few step by step instructions to ger me started.So I bought 4 passes for me and my family and intend to put 2 passes on my phone and 2 on my wifes. Firstly, how do I plan the trip on the mobile pass for 4 of us, then move 2 passes to my wifes phone? Can this be done before activating? Once I add trips to the mobile pass is it then activated or not?Also I made my first reservation for a nightjet. This reservation will be towards the end of our trip so does it matter which order it is added to the pass?When making this nightjet booking on the obb site the confirmation said if I take the pdf ticket now it invalidates the cancellation policy and so to get the ticket at the station.I thought that the ticket, when added to the mobile pass would mean that I didn't need paper tickets? Have I got this wrong?Tia
Online order issues on interrail.eu
When buying an Interrail pass on interrail.eu, "Plus" (23 EUR extra) is automatically added on checkout. If you don't want that, you first have to notice it and then unselect it. I'm not sure if it's allowed to add optional extras automatically but regardless of that: it is undesired. Please change that. If you click on "Continue shopping" during checkout and then return to the checkout later, then "Plus" is added back again! This is even less desirable, since you should be able to trust that your order is not changed after you've saved it.Any feedback from Eurail (@Nanja :) appreciated.
Frequent users benefit but infrequent travellers lose money. Yes?
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?
Interrail pass fees
Is the extra £19 ‘free cancellation’ when booking an interrail pass necessary? If I didn’t get this could I still use the ticket within 11months of buying it or is that only possible when paying the extra fee. If I OPT for the paper ticket instead does the extra £10 cover a refund (if needed)?
When to activate Pass?
I have purchased a Eurail Global Senior pass. It is good for 4 trips in one month. I have plans for 2 routes at this point:4/29/2022 - Frankfurt to Basel5/9/2022 - Amsterdam to Paris (reservations needed)Should I activate before I get to Frankfurt? Can I make the reservation for second trip before activation?Thanks Pam
I had to set a date on which I wanted to start the trip. Is this date fixed or can it still be changed?
I want to do my first interrail trip with a global pass this summer. As there ist the 10% sale right now, I wanted to buy the '10 days in 2 months' ticket today. But at one point of filling in my data I had to set a date on which I wanted to start the trip. Is this date fixed or can it still be changed?Bc if the tickets aren't on sale, they can be used flexibly within 11 months.I couldn't find any information on this topic, so I did not buy the ticket yet.hope somebody can help :)
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
Terms and conditions of Global Pass
Hi, I am considering buying a global pass 4-days to fulfill my travels. My residencial address is in Berlin.Berlin - Eastern France (day1) Eastern France - Paris region (day2) Paris region - Lyon region (day3) Lyon region - Berlin (day4)Nonetheless the way I understand the terms and conditions of this pass, I mainly can use the pass only in Germany, with the exception of two travels: one out and one back to the country of residence.“Der Interrail Global-Pass berechtigt dich zum Reisen in deinem Wohnsitzland. Du kannst eine Fahrt aus dem Land und eine Fahrt in das Land nutzen. Diese Fahrten können jeweils zu einem beliebigen Zeitpunkt deiner Reise stattfinden”Is this correct? Thanks for giving me some help!Vee

Edit trip in Railplanner app
I have a question about the Electronic Global Pass. I travelled last month with my global pass.In the Railplanner App you can enter a trip for the pass. The trip will be on the ticket. The ticket inspector will scan the barcode on your ticket and will check if the train you are on has been added to your ticket. Now i have te following situation. I made a trip from Munster (Germany) via Munich to Innsbruck (Austria). I had it in one trip.The problem was with the train from Munster to Munich which ends (because of a delay) in Stuttgart (next stops where cancelled). In Stuttgart i had to take another train. The problem is i couldn’t change the trip (only delete it). And i also couldn’t add another trip from Stuttgart to Munich to my Pass. I don’t know the error but i think it was something like an overlapping trip can not be added.I know deleted de complete trip and added new trips (the previous trains en the new trains).Did i something wrong ? I think it must be possible to change a
