I kept entering my passport ID and putting in valid dates but it seemed like the app didn’t want to accept the ID number - As it seemed to keep going back to the ID field and I was unable to see/click the submit/activate button. The issue I found was that it was just that the keyboard wouldn’t minimise. There was no issue with my data or the app. I couldn’t get rid of the keyboard in the way I do normally (e.g. I couldn’t swipe it down and there’s no way to minimise it using the keyboard itself). However if you click anywhere on the main page outside of the keyboard - It will go away. Then you can see and press the ‘activate’ button. Simple solution but it’s been driving me crazy and seems like some other iPhone users Apple forums have had some similar issues. I was due to travel soon and was having a panic that I wouldn’t be able to activate my pass in time - So thought I’d post here in case anyone else came across the same issue!
Hello all, My family and I would like to travel to Antwerp (Belgia) and Amsterdam (The Netherlands), our country of residence is Germany (we have German ID but with non-EU Passport). Our itinerary is as follows:1st journey: Leipzig (our hometown) - Antwerp 2nd journey: Antwerp - Amsterdam 3rd journey: Amsterdam - Antwerp 4th journey: Antwerp - LeipzigIn this case, can we buy the Benelux Pass or should we buy the Global 4-Day Pass? Also, can we buy the Interrail Pass or should we buy the Eurail Pass?Looking forward to your answer. Thanks!
Hello.I have something to ask.I am planning a trip through '4 days within 1 month pass'.When I go from point A to point B by train, if I stop at several points, I wonder if we can calculate it once.I will send my captured rail planner screen for accurate judgment.Do you judge the journey from Prague to Wien as "1 day"?Oh, and I'm wondering if I use train leaving late at night and arriving the next morning, also we judge that it's "1 day", right?Thanks for your kind replies.
The rail passes I have are electronic mobile pass versions, they show up under my Eurail account, but I’m not sure how to use them when it comes time to reserve/pay for seats on eurail.com. Basically, I’ve got all my routes selected, and I’m ready to go to the checkout screen. But it looks like I still need to pay $20/person plus an $8 service charge per train. My assumption was that since I purchased the rail pass, I could reserve seats using the rail pass and not have to pay anything. But nowhere during the checkout process am I asked to input my pass #’s.
Can you help me? I booked a train from Budapest to Prague by Eurail Pass. I couldn't get on because of the Austrian train strike. I booked another train, but I missed it. I'm going to take a plane with a one-day ticket, but there's no other train today. Can I refund this train ticket or change it to the next day? please.
Hi, I have an Interrail mobile pass for 7 days within one month. The last activation date is 31 August 2022 but I am not able to start my first journey until 20 September 2022. I then plan to complete all 7 days of travel by 30 September 2022. Is this permitted? Or do I have to take my first journey on the date that I activate the pass (ie travel on 31 August 2022?).Any advice gratefully received.
I purchased a 2 month interrail pass on 11th May 2022 so I need to activate it no later than the 11th April 2023. My plan is to activate the pass on the 10th April 2023 and set a start date of 20th April 2023. My current understanding is that the 2 month duration will start on the 11th April (instead of the 20th April start date) and my last day of usage will be the 11th June 2023. Can someone confirm that my understanding is correct and it is possible to set a start date which occurs after the 11 months from purchase? Thanks.
I am planning a Eurail trip and will be traveling on my South African passport as I currently reside there. I do however also have a Swiss passport and wondered if the regulations regarding one in-bound & one out-bound trip in Switzerland also apply to me, or whether I would be able to visit multiple destinations in Switzerland as well?
Hey, so I am traveling from Sweden to Amsterdam 29th of november, and then coming back from Amsterdam to Sweden the 2nd of december. Trying to understand the different passes, but would a “5 days within 1 month” pass work for this trip? Also, if you have done this trip, is it worth to pay for first class?
Hi all,Planning a trip and getting ready to buy a pass, but stopped here and would like to check in with the community.Planning for 14 days with the following routes (hopefully) - depart city will be Amsterdam. On to Berlin. Then to Krakow. On to Prague and return to Amsterdam. Figure about 3 days in each city. Have looked on a few of the train websites (Bahn, PKP etc.) and just looking to see if others have used a Eurail pass for these routes.CheersJim
Hi, I purchased a eurail pass for my trip travelling throughout Europe for 4 weeks. I thought this would save stress and money however when I arrived for my first train to Paris I was unable to make it on any of the trains and had to purchase a ticket anyway. My question is how can I avoid this happening for other cities where I may possibly be stranded without accommodation. The train company were not affiliated and could not help. There is no personal customer service making me think this pass / company is a total rip off!!
I'm trying to claim my travel insurance for DB trains delay/cancellation. However the insurance company requested a certificate issued by the train company to prove that my train was literally cancelled/delayed. I didn’t ask them for the certificate when I was in the train station and am leaving Europe very soon. I only screen caped my Eurail pass itineraries and the mobile tickets (original itinerary and the new one due to original train cancellation/delay). How can I ask for the delay/cancellation certificate from DB? Or will Eurail issue me one since I booked my trains through their app.
Hello, My 4 friends and I are planning a trip in beginning in April and ending in May. We are visiting Spain, France, Italy and Greece. We have some flights so we are only accounting for 5-6 train days while in Spain, France and Italy. We were looking at the 2 months with 10 days of travel (the eurail global pass). But we are wondering how if these extra days will pay off while being in Greece. And how the ferries in Greece work woth the global pass? We would like the cheapest option and one that makes the most sense. Let us know what you would recommend. Thanks, Hilary
As someone who will be staying in France for the next four months, I was disappointed to see that the BF sale did not extend to the the 3 month pass. Does Eurail historically drop an end of year or Christmas sale that normally includes the longer period passes?
Good MorningI will be travelling from New Zealand senior solo so please your advice would be greatly appreciated. I am looking at a 15 day global pass but have two long day trips VIenna-Venice and Cologne-Nice would you upgrade to 1st class for these two trips thank you?
