Interrail - Eurostar
Hi thereNew to interrail and slightly baffled by the whole thing! My partner and i have 4-day passes. We want to book London St Pancras to Brussels. Have found train we want via interrail.eu; this is linked to our pass details etc. I get to the ‘payment’ stage and still cannot see which seats we’ll be assigned. Is this because there are only a certain number of pass-holder seats available, and you are just assigned whichever seats there are? I just find it strange I cannot see a seating plan or anything; maybe I’m looking in the wrong place? Do I just pay the 60 euros and then find out which seats we have?Apologies, this has probably been answered elsewhere, but I feel like I’m going round in circles! :)
One of the legs of your journey is not available anymore. Please try searching for another connection
Hi everyone.I have a 2 month eurail pass and am attempting to reserve seats for trains from Marseille to Avignon on the 13th of August and Avignon to Paris on the 14th. I don't mind what time the train leaves and hence have been attempting all different available trains throughout the days, however, every time I attempt to “proceed to payment” I get a notification stating “One of the legs of your journey is not available anymore. Please try searching for another connection”. I haven't has this issue with any of my other trains, so am unsure why this is occuring.Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks, Jamie
Traveling with a Eurail gobal pass
Hello!I'm heading to Europe this summer, my first solo and DIY trip in the region! I'm particularly heading to the ff areas in a span of 40 days:SPAIN - Barcelona (June 27- June 30)ITALY (flying in from Barcelona) - Rome, Florence, Venice (July 1 - July 11)SWITZERLAND - Geneva, Aigle, Montreux, Sion*, Lausanne*, Leysin* (July 11 - 16)CROATIA (flying in from Geneva) - Dubrovnik, Split, Plitvice, Zagreb (July 16 - July 21)AUSTRIA - Vienna, Salzburg, Innsbruck (July 21 - August 4)HUNGARY* - Budapest* (sometime between July 21 - August 4) *not yet sure if I'm heading to these destinations but good to have them as options I hope someone can provide clarification and other details to my following questions:(1) I couldn't count yet how frequent I need to take the train, and I prefer to be flexible. Is the Eurail global pass my best option? It's a bit pricey for me but would consider if I can make the most out of it (i.e. most number of trips, most convenient for traveling with a luggage).(2)
How do I choose my seat when making a reservation on TGV trains using a Eurail Global pass?
I bought a Eurail Global pass for an upcoming family trip across Europe. I’ve been able to make a 4 seat reservation for a train from Bordeaux to Narbonne (ultimately on to Barcelona from there). When making the reservation, I was unable to actually choose the floor, or seats. I was looking for four seats facing each other, on the upper deck...preferably in the family section. The site just automatically assigned me four seats. I have no idea where these seats are on the train, if they’re in the family section or if they are facing each other. Before I bought Eurail pass, I almost purchased a group of tickets from the site without using a pass. That process allowed me to choose the type of seat and section. I’m thinking I may be just done it wrong this time. Any words of wisdom or tips?Thanks in advance.
Hello all,If anyone could assist with the following inquiry it would be much appreciated.I currently have been living in Turkey, we own a flat here. Is Turkey considered as part of Europe? From what I’ve read it seems as though it is. I ask this question because it makes a difference whether I purchase Eurail pass or Interail passes for an upcoming trip to Europe.Thank you, Mark
Are there certain accesses to train stations in specific cities only according to the Eurail pass that you buy? Like if you buy the two month pass verses the 4 day in one month pass, do you have access to more train stop locations?Because when I click on various passes, they offer different maps..
Schwedenreise: Kein Tagzug von Stockholm nach Lulea?
Hallo, ihr habt mir sehr geholfen. Danke. Ich konnte bis Stockholm reservieren. Interrail 1.Klasse, 2 Seniors, etwa 100 Euro Aufpreis. Von dort sollte es mit dem “Tagzug” weitergehen. Aber da finde ich nichts. Kann es sein, dass auf dieser Strecke am 14.6.23 tagsüber gar kein Hochgeschwindigkeitszug verkehrt und der Nachtzug 4096 SEK Aufpreis kostet (Private sleeping compartment)?Dank und Grüße von Roland.

Refunds for delayed trains in Spain (Renfe)
Took a train yesterday from Madrid to Malaga which got delayed by a little over 30 minutes.Upon arrival at Malaga some passengers were queuing up to file for refund at the station ticket counter but since I was in a hurry I didn't bother.Also, since I only paid the reservation fee in combination with Global Eurail pass and not the full ticket price, I wasn't sure if there are refunds on the reservation fee as well just like full fare tickets.Thought I would ask here if someone can shed some light on this... basically the query is two-fold: 1. Are the reservation charges refundable on delayed Renfe high speed trains?2. Can a refund be claimed online or does one have to physically fill a form at the counter?Thanks in advance for your time. ..
Pass(es) needed for Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Italy
I’m pretty overwhelmed trying to figure out what passes may be necessary for June 2023 trip for 4 travelers (2 adults, 2 youth). Could someone assist? Generally, I think my questions are:Do we need Global Passes, and what exactly will it cover/not cover of the travel locations below? If not, what do you suggest? Is an extra pass required within Germany, Switzerland, Austria, or Italy? Are there certain times or lines which might require actual reservations? If so, should I book those far in advance or a couple days prior? Below is our itinerary:Day 1 (13 Jun 2023): Arrive at Vienna airport, get to Westbanhof (Might this be covered by Global Pass?), Day 2 - Vienna (will Global pass cover getting to and from Westbahnhof to Stephansplatz/Vienna?) Day 3 - Vienna to Salzburg Day 4 - Salzburg to Munich Day 4-5- In and around Munich (Does Global pass cover travel within Munich, To/From Dachau?) Day 6 - Munich to Zurich, then Zurich to Lucerne (This is where I get really confused. Are Switzerl
Outbound trip cannot be used
So I'm trying to book an outbound trip back to my home country, but whatever I do it won't let me do it. Also noticed that the travel day is being used as an in/out bound journey which should not be the case since it’s a outbound journey... Also the app is so backwards, sometimes it tells me to do actions on the website… For what do you have an app for then?
Traveling throughout Europe making Reservations
I have a 30-day Global Eurail Pass and I do not want to activate the pass until I get to Denmark on the 30th of May. I want to reserve a couple of trips but I do not want to activate my pass now because I do not want my days to stay yet. However, there are a few trains we're they say they get filled fast and if course these are the trains I will need to stay on schedule My Questions... 1) When I land in Denmark on the 30th of May will a person working at the train station in Denmark be able to help me with reservation from say... Amsterdam to Cologne, Germany or any other country in Europe? 2) Or can a worker in Denmark or some other country only help with Reservations in their own country? 3) Is there a way I can reserve my spot on the train without activating my pass or anything similar to this?Thank you very much in advance!
Paper requirement for 4-Day Greek Island Pass?
Since the website says the 6-Day pass is a “paper pass”, I’m wondering if I will get hassle at the Greek ticket/ferry stations for using the mobile app to collect my tickets and board the ferries. If anyone has experience or can speak on whether I should be fine to collect my tickets at the Greek ferry stations with just the app and online reservations, would appreciate your help!
CAN I STILL CHANGE THE START DATE OF MY INTERRAIL GLOBAL PASS?
Hello, I won an Interrail Global Pass via DiscoverEU and would like to use it for travel in the near future. The e-mails from DiscoverEU say I can activate it by 05/31/23 at the latest, so in 6 days and then use it by 06/30/23 at the latest. Now I went into my Interrail app and unfortunately I have to realize that my journey supposedly began on April 30th, 2023, which I didn't know anything about, I haven't even used my pass yet. My question: Is it still possible to change my Global Pass even though it's almost expired?Best regardsKonrad
Travel days & which pass to purchase
Hello,I have a question regarding travel days and which pass to purchase. My itinerary will be starting in London then going to 7 other locations. It says we require 8 travel days but we believe it will only be 7. It seems like it is counting London as a travel day even though we will only be leaving from there. Just trying to determine whether to get the 7 day or 10 day pass.
questions about generating a ticket
Hi Some questions about generating the ticket . I have added my journeys to the app. I understand I need to toggle the slider to the right of the journey when the time comes to create a ticket. I won’t do this until nearer the time of my journey as it is advised that if things change at the last minute the travel day would be lost. This does make me a little nervous, as I would rather have my tickets all ready in advance of travel especially as it is a Eurostar train early morning on which expensive seat reservations are booked, and I don’t want to miss it if there are any problems with the app that I’ve never used before. In this case, when do you recommend I create the ticket? As this is the first day of my travels I will be a leaving my home country. If for some reason i had to change my travel plans and travel a day later, but I had created tickets in advance, would the in/out day be lost or is is just a travel day that is lost? (As I won’t be using all 4 of my travel days,

Hey guys, does anyone know whether it is possible to use the inbound journey before the outbound journey (Mobile Pass)?
