Hi,I want to purchase the Global Pass and I don’t entirely understand the policies regarding travelling within home country. I hope the community will be able to help me here.Is it possible to return my hometown during the two months and then start again after a break period? (I assume not) If the first idea doesnt work, would it then be possible to travel with the pass to a city nearby the border of my home country from where I purchase separate tickets to travel to my hometown and then back again? For Interrail I didnt return to my home country then. How are trips booked in the mobile app exactly if I transit my home country? For example travelling from France to Poland crossing Germany? I assume I would only be allowed to transit without any stops in Germany? Lets say I would get out in Berlin and then book a trip from Poland (via Berlin) to another country, could I just jump on that train in Berlin theoretically? Or is there some kind of validation that would prevent this kind of
Hi there - I’ve got a number of questions about the 3 month pass that’s currently on promotion - I’ve asked customer support a couple of days ago and haven’t had any response and can’t seem to find exact answers to a lot of the below - hope the community can help answer some of these questions! Pls feel free to answer individual questions if easier - however I’ll list them all in one place.Many thanks in advance!Questions: 1. As a family of 2 adults and 2 children under 12 based in U.K. - if we bought a 3 month continuous pass on the promotion ( ie. for the equivalent of 1 full price Adult ticket) - does this mean we can travel on the Eurostar as many times as we like during the 3months? And as long as there are available tickets on the Eurostar website - does that mean tickets are available for the Global pass too (or are there restricted numbers of tickets like frequent flyer tickets on planes)eg. we could do Lon-Paris, Lon-Amsterdam, Lon Brussels on 3 consecutive weekends? 2. Does t
HiI bought my passes (15 in 2 months)in March with the 10% promo but would like to exchange them for the continuous pass that is on offer now.

TIA Martin
How does it work to buy multiple passes? I buy 2 passes and *activate” the first by making the first reservation of a train tomorrow? And then even in 5 months I can “active” the second period of three months by making another reservation? So I don’t already now need to know the exact travel dates?
Deutsche Bahn writes: The "Interrail Global Pass Special Promotion" tickets are valid for the first day of validity in the period from May 6th, 2022 to April 9th, 2023 issued. Does this mean a 3 month pass can be bought now and then be used from April 9th to July 8th?
Hi, 4 months ago, I purchased a global 5-day in a month pass, but I would like to exchange it to a continuous pass. The site says I should first buy the new pass and then get in contact with the costumer service. I did not purchase the 5-day pass in PLUS, so if I would ask for a refund I would only get 85% back. Asking for exchange costs 15 euros, but my question was, when I ask for an exchange and buy the new pass, will I get paid back the full cost of the first pass (-15 euros) or will I only get the 85% back AND pay the 15 euros?
Hello!I booked a 7 day pass and I cancelled a travel day and my pass is now showing I have used 2/7 days even though I have no trips booked. My travel dates are in June so I’m well ahead of cancellation policy. Has this happened to anyone else? And how do you gain these days back?Thanks!
Hi! I have a question. I study in Hungary and I have a residence permit here. But I am a Dutch citizen and have Dutch citizenship. Now I want to buy the interrail pass that's in the flash sale, the continues one. I want to use it to travel from Budapest, to the Netherlands. In the Netherlands I would like to travel from the south to my family in the North, a week later to the east, maybe travel a bit inbetween in the Netherlands, and then from there to Lisbon. However, I wonder if it is possible for me to make several journeys within the Netherlands? Because the website says that it is not allowed in the country you live in, but I don't live there. Thanks in advance!
I will be starting on a 7-leg trip from Oslo to London by train. I used the mobile Eurail Pass to save details of all legs of this journey and checked that a QR code had been generated for each (iphone 11 IoS 15.4.1, Railway Planner app version 23.11). Today everything has disappeared! I do see that some members have experienced a similar problem - I don’t want to have to enter ALL the details again…..is there a way out?ThanksNandini
Can I travel outside my country of residence if I have already used up the outbound and inbound travel?
Hi,I would like to know if I can do several, for example, 2-week trips with a global pass over 3 months. I know that I can only travel once out of my country and once into my country, but can I travel outside my home country if I have not started the trip with Interrail tickets from my home country? For example go from Vienna to Munich (i’m austrian) with an own ticket an then use Interrail again going on from munich, if i've used both inbound and outbound before. And from where do I have to buy the ticket when travelling back into my country not having the inbound anymore. The first station in my country or the last station in the foreign country?Thank you! Felix
I'm trying to buy a pass and when I enter my home address I received massage: Please try using the English alphabet. I'm for sure using English alphabet. My adress is with the number 16i, it takes not the “i”. I will book only at the interrail-site, becaue there is a supernice discount.

Hello, I will be travelling from Milan to Munich on May 12th. When I reserved a seat the only option was to reserve from Milan to Zurich which I did , then wait 1h06 mins and continue to Munich (with no option to reserve). do I just add a trip to my app and then click view tickets and have them scan the QR Code? This is considered my ticket ? Where do I sit if there is no reservation? Or do I reserve a seat in Zurich?
Hi, I am planning to travel around Europe for about 2 months starting the 18th of May. I would like to purchase an interrail pass as they are currently 50% off and I have a residency permit for Denmark. I am not a European citizen but I do have a residency permit for Denmark. I am planning to travel till July of 2022 with an interrail pass starting in May. If my Danish residence permit expires May 28th will I not be eligible to keep using my interrail pass? Do I have to buy a eurrail pass instead?
This is urgent please as depends on completion during the current 48 hour 50% flash sale. We live in the UK. My husband is severely disabled and needs me to help him with personal care and medication. He is in receipt of enhanced rate of PIPs (Personal Independence Payment) for both daily living and mobility and has a Blue badge and a disabled railcard in the UK. Therefore, we would like to apply for a complimentary Interrail Pass for me as his caregiver. If I am eligible for a complimentary caregiver’s pass, and he purchases a continuous railcard for one or two months in the current 50% flash sale, can my complimentary pass still be used please? Is it possible to complete this application in time to benefit from the sale?
Hey guys, I am thinking about using the current Interrail offer. Since I'm planning a vacation in Corsica in the summer anyway, I wanted to ask if you can also use Interrail there, for example from Bastia to Ajaccio? For any experience reports I would be extremely grateful, wish you a nice Sunday :-) Warm regardsRené
I stay in Switzerland and if I happen to buy “Interrail Global Pass”, can I then use it in Switzerland too, to travel in “Glacier Express”, “Bernin Express” and “Golden Pass” and other regional trains here?Is there any restriction on using “Interrail Global Pass” in Switzerland if I stay in Switzerland?Or it has inbound/outbound journey limitis for the country where you stay?
