Hello, I wanted to start travelling the 30th of january. Now I see I activated my pass the first of january by accident. I didn’t add a journey neither I travelled.

I tought the pass would start from the moment you add your first journey… can you please help me? thanks a lot. Greetings
Global Pass Ausreise und Heimreise
Hallo, nach langen hin und her, haben sich mein Partner und ich für eine Urlaubsreise nach Italien mit Interrail entschieden. Jedoch sind wir auf ein Frage gestoßen. Wir werden den Globalpass nehmen, da ja die Fahrt aus Österreich inkludiert ist Gilt die Fahrt ab unseren Heimatsbahnhof oder ab den Bahnhof wo unser Zug nach Italien geht ? Hello, after a lot of back and forth, my partner and I have decided to go on a vacation trip to Italy with Interrail. However, we encountered a question. We will take the global pass, since the journey from Austria is included. Is the journey valid from our home station (Amstetten) or from the station (Salzburg) where our train goes to Italy?
How to Eurail.....
Hi, my daughters and I will be traveling europe july 1-17 2022 and planning to use eurail. I have a couple of questions. What is the difference between 1st class and 2nd and if 1st isn't available can we still use our pass for a 2nd class seat? What is the best city to start in to get places quicker? We originally were going to start in Porto and it seems trains from there to paris will take a very long time and we would lose exploring days for travel. Are we able to pay the difference for a sleeper train if we are traveling overnight? how does that work?

So it is our first time in Europe and our first time trying to travel by train. But, but, but we are having sone trouble getting reservations, hopefully we can solve them in this community.

Until this point everything looks just lovely, But but but… When we review the tickets an orange text target saying “Seat reservations required” here starts Our calvario. First Only at this point I figure out I have to pay more and I don’t get why, also we figure out that no help is provided just a robot who is very annoying until we arrive here but

Residence + reservation unavailable + inbound/outbound
Hi, I am Italian but currently I am studying and living in Germany. All my documents are Italian. My trip will not involve travelling from/through/to Italy. In Germany, I am registered as living here but I do not have a German ID. Which should I select as my residence country? In case I select Italy, then I will not use my inbound and inbound journeys. Is this okay? Additionally, when trying to make a reservation through the interrail.eu website some trains show up as:DETAILS UNAVAILABLE. Seat reservation information isn't available right now for this train.Under ‘other ways to book this seat reservation’ I get:Book in person at a main station in EuropeThis is the case for the journey CHAMBERY CHALLES LES EAUX (FR) - GENEVE (CH) on 30/01/2022 (departure time 12:42). However I noticed that the same problem appears when changing date and time.So should I go to any station in Europe and book a seat for this train? Is there a chance they will tell that it is not possible or is it just a ma
Can I use the eurail pass within the country?
Hi Everyone!I was planning to travel to europe later this year. I am just confuse on how well I can use the pass. I wanted to know if we can use the pass within the country? For example I went to Switzerland and I want to travel all around Switzerland. Can I use the Eurail pass on the local trains within Switzerland and that includes any other country? Or does Eurail pass only works if you travel from one country to another? Thank You in advance
DiscoverEU; Traveling from Sardinia - flight included?
Hi! I wanted to ask a question about the Interrail pass (I won the pass on the DiscoverEU site)I currently live in an island (Sardinia, Italy); ferries are available but they would take at least 10-12 hours if not more. Do we have a right to take a plane to Europe using our pass?
Eurail Global Pass Confusion
Hi All,My boyfriend and I will be traveling throughout Europe for two months in April and May. We will be going from Lisbon, Madrid, Barcelona, Paris, Belgium, Amsterdam, Germany, Prague, Switzerland, and Italy. We were looking at getting the 15 day 2 month pass from moving from city to city, and then any small day trips just pay out of pocket. While doing more research we are confused. For example if we get the pass, we can jump on any train to lets say Barcelona to Paris for free with the pass? But there might be reservation fees? and luggage fees?OR will we also be paying the difference in ticket price that the pass doesn’t cover? For example the pass would be $422 for 15 days = $28.13 per ride. Looking at a ticket to Barcelona to Paris it’s around $60 so will I pay for a reservation fee, luggage fee, and $31.87 to cover the difference? I know this is long, I just wanted to be really thorough, we are starting to budget more for this trip and want to make sure we understand if the Eu

How many trains can you take on a travel day?
If I go on a train in the morning, for example at 7 a.m and arrive somewhere at 10 a.m and than I go on the next train in the evening at 5 p.m and arrive to the destination at 9 p.m the same day. Do these two trips count as one travel day or two days, since everything happens in the same day?
Can a group of people be added to a (free) travel pass, or do they have to buy their own?
Hi! My friend was just given a free interrail pass and a group of friends have decided to join her (including myself) this summer to do some travelling around Europe. I’ve heard that groups can be added onto her pass but I can’t find any information about this on the website, will the rest of us be able to travel with her pass or will we need to each purchase our own? Apologies if this is a silly question, I just thought it would be better to ask before proceeding in case the rest of the group may be able to save some money. Thanks!
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
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
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

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?
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!
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 ?
