I’ll be traveling from Zurich to Munich via rail soon, and I was wondering if I could use my Swiss GA Travelcard along with a Eurail Germany Rail Pass to complete my journey? The website says travel is only covered to Basel with the Eurail Germany Rail Pass, but could I use my GA Travelcard to cover the travel in Switzerland then use the Eurail Germany Pass to cover the border crossing and Germany travel? Thanks in advance
Hello, unfortunately I cannot access my travel pass on the rail planner app anymore. I had added the pass a few months ago on my phone. When I try to add the pass again, I always get the notice that another device is using this pass. But that’s not possible since I get that notice on both my devices. Does anyone know how to fix this?Thank you in advance for the help.
If I understood the conditions correctly the Benelux Pass is valid in all three countries only if you’re not living in one of them. On other sites (e. g. https://www.acprail.com/rail-passes/interrail/interrail-benelux) it even says that you cannot buy it at all if you’re a resident of either of the tree countries. Has this been changed recently? Anyway, if you’re a resident of NL, BE or L you are still paying the same as anyone else but are only getting travel in the two other countries. Is that correct? Considering that public transit is free in Luxemburg anyway, that does not seem to be very much of a bargain, anymore. If you are a BE or NL resident you are essentially only getting travel in the respective other country since in L it is free, anyway (unless you’re using a 1st class pass, of course). Am I getting something wrong here?
Hi all, I am planning to Intrerrail for a month in Europe and I have few questions that has kept me confused therefore coming to you for help. I am a Non-national resident of UK, have been granted a refugee status in the UK and have travel document. I am planning to go to Austria, Switzerland and Italy. Only Austria that I need visa for. My questions are: Should I get a Interail or Eurail pass as a resident of UK? Does UK still count as Europe for Interail? If not, will Global pass give me access to travel from London to Europe and then back? If you have a travel document and have visited to these countries, please feel free to share your experience with the interail etc. Looking forward to hear and thanks so much in advance! A
I am traveling to Italy next week from Switzerland. I have booked a few tickets (and downloaded PDFs) from https://shop.oebbtickets.at/I have an Eurail Pass & have the following queries:Do I need to validate my ticket somewhere? Do I need to have any documents besides my Passport? I got the PDF versions of the tickets. Do I also need to have A4 Prints of the same (as I received a message after purchasing the tickets to do so)? Requirement of my or my family’s photo?
I have 4 passes associated with the 4 people who are going to travel together. In My Trip I see a person with a p and the other 3 with a c (I think it's a copy), but in the person with the p I can't add trips, because when I try, it gives me the option to add the three people with c, but not in the one with the p..., what am I doing wrong?? Why can't I see the trip in one of the people (the one with the p)?Thank you.
Hi guys! A friend of mine and i we are doing a trip starting from Prague (Czech Republic) then Vienna (Austa) to Munich (Germany) and then to Paris (France) and after that we are going to back to Frankfurt (Germany). Are we allowed to back to Germany using the Global Pass 5 days in one month?. Thanks in advance!
Hello,If I have a pass for 1 month and my mother a pass for 2 months, bought in May, when must we finish our travels by? I understand we have to activate within 11 months (so April 2023), but if we begin our travels in April could my Mum continue travelling into May and past the 11 months? Or must we finish our travel within 12 months of buying the pass?Thank you, Emma
Hello everyone,Is it possible to travel on the weekends only? I have a global-interrail pass (1 month) but can only travel on the weekends. So could I technically not use my interrail pass (and the Deutschlandticket instead) to travel to the borders, and just say that I start from the neighbouring country? Or is any way of returning (even if its not saved in my pass) to my COR violating the terms of the pass? Or maybe I just pretend to stay at border station (outside of COR) and then “continue” my travel later, within the 1-month period?Thank you!!Anil
hi there, I have purchased the flexi 5 day global pass. My route is London - Paris - Lyon - Sion - Venice - FlorenceMy question is, although i got a global pass for visiting different countries, 2/5 trips will be inter country (Paris - Lyon & Venice - Florence) does this still take up my travel day?
We have never traveled by rail before let alone with the rail pass. When evaluating rail passes months ago, it appeared that a 10 day flexible pass would be our best option because I assumed that the rail pass worked for all trains, per the list of countries it says it covers. So we purchased it and the train tickets for the first leg from Paris to Strasbourg because we were concerned about getting seats. However, now that we are ready to commit to other trains, we are finding that we need to reserve seats, which have to be done at the train station and according to the Rail Planner App some of the trains are “Not in the Pass Network”.We also want to use gondolas and tourist trains in Switzerland. So now I’m wondering the global flex pass was the wrong thing to buy.If it doesn’t make sense, can I cancel the train reservation made and get a refund for the rail pass and what would you recommend instead? HELP PLEASE! 9/6 - Paris to Strasbourg to Grindelwald9/11 - Grindelwald to Kander
Hi. I have been travelling in Europe with my two kids. My eldest son who has a youth pass is returning to UK earlier than me. We have booked his Eurostar reservation but i cannot add the mobile inter rail pass to his device. He has all the print outs of the Eurostar reservations with the bar code. Will he still need to show his inter rail pass ???
I'm going to Greece and I want to buy the Greek Islands Pass. One day I will take the ferry at 11:50 p.m. and it will arrives to Piraeus at 8 in the morning… will I spend two days of my pass with this ferry? Do I have to book both days? Thank you very much for your answers :)
Hello,I want to start my journey from Berlin to Basel tomorrow, direct connection, my residence country is Germany but the app does not recognise the outbound trip - so the ticket says it is not valid in Germany? What can I do? I didn’t find this question in the forum yet. Thanks for your help!=)
Hi!Me and my friends are planning on Travelling in may. We are thinking of starting in Greece, and maybe go the the smaller islands there or to just stay in Greece and travel around there. Then we are thinking of taking the fairy to Italy and from there go to Schweiz and Austria or maybe France and Spain. Im wondering what kind of pass would fit best for this? I have checked the global pass but the problem is with Greece when you only get 30% discount on the ferries and I realized that the ferries are pretty expensive. The boat trip from Greece to Italy isn’t included in the global pass right? We don’t want the train tickets and boat tickets to become too pricy. Is it worth having a global pass when going to Greece? Or is it better to just buy ordinary tickets for this trip? Do you have any tips and if you have taken the ferries in Greece, what did it cost for you?

If I travel by ship (for example Viking Line from Helsinki to Stockholm), is this a travel day (if I have a flexipass with 10 travel days within 2 months)? Because a ship is not a train. And if I want to use the discounts that I can use (for example in cafe's etc) if I have the pass, can I use them only during the travel days (10 days) or during the whole 2 months?
