Can anybody definitively confirm that IC trains in Italy do or do not require reservations for pass users?My experience a couple of months ago was my reservation was checked. Interrail planner says reservation required, but on here and Facebook several experienced contributors say they are optional.Italiarail - Trenitalia’s official partner also says reservations are required. I am always concerned that Newbies get the correct information as on board. It is no good saying “I thought...” or “ I was told by …...”, when they have the uniform and the rule book on their side.
I have a 10 day first class pass, not activated, and have already purchased through SBCB reservations for Eurostar and TGV.I now wish to exchange the pass for one with fewer journeys and even though this is a reduction in value to Interrail I understand that I can do this for a 15 Euro fee. Will my existing reservations (for which I had to generate a pass cover number) be valid with the new pass?Thanks, Scott
Hello, i have a question about the 7 days in 1 month pass. Is every country included? Because i am planning a trip with stops in Vienna, Bled, Liubliana, Budapest, Prague, Copenhaguen and Stockholm but the price it gives me when i introduce these locations is higher so i don’t know if they are included or not.
Hi everyone, I have been trying for weeks to book tickets from Zermatt to Venice in December and there was at first no train timetable available yet (even though the days surrounding it were available), and now the times are available I cannot reserve seats through the website no matter what time or route I try to enter. Is anyone else experiencing this or can tell me what to do? Thanks!
I am right now on the DB IC train from Zurich to Amsterdam. I activated the ticket before boarding the train at 22:00, and the qr code shows correctly.At 01:55 the next day, the DB ticket control took place on the train. My qrcode disappeared because it’s already the next day after midnight. And obviously the ticket control need the qrcode, not my pass for validation.At this point I see no options to recover the qrcode unless re-generating a qr-code on the railplanner app. But this will cost me another travel day.What should I do under such circumstances?
Hellomy husband and I are both over 60 and want to use the trains to travel fromBristol to Kitzbuhel in Austria. We think London to Paris and overnight stay then on to Munich the next day and overnight stay then on to Austria. We will do a similar pattern on return. We ain to travel in about 10 days. Do we need Eurail pass after Brexit. any advice or suggestions will be received. We don’t even know which pass we need. Will we be too late to get train reservations. We fancied an adventure to visit friends instead of putting up with airports. Thank you in advance
Hi, I am planning on doing a 3-month interrail trip in September and I’m taking a few night trains. However, i only want to book single sleepers, I don’t want to share. Is it necessary to buy a 1st class interrail pass? or will the 2nd class suffice? Thanks!
On 17th Nov, my friend bought 2x passes for us. Payment has been taken from her bank account, however there has been no confirmation email or any indication that the passes were actually purchased. Does it normally take several days for the passes to be emailed or is there an issue? Please help
Hi!I am going to travel from Sweden to Germany and the UK in December-January. It seems like an Interrail pass will provide more flexibility and less costs than booking with the separate train lines, but I have a few concerns regarding this. First, I would still have to book seat reservations to be sure to be allowed on the train (in most cases, especially from Germany to the UK?) Second, seat reservation tickets for UK trains will be posted per mail which means I cannot be spontaneous about the exact date, and I have to book and receive these tickets before I leave for Germany? This seems to make it rather inflexible. (And I read about a nightmare scenario where one customer had to buy a full price UK Eurostar ticket despite having an Interrail pass!) Then a few other questions. Can I expect discounts on most regional buses? Would I need to buy a completely new pass / separate tickets if I notice that the period of time / number of travel days won't be enough? Does December-January us
Hi all,I’m a German student residing in the UK on a tier 4 student visa. Over Christmas, I want to travel to Germany (and some other countries) using an Interrail Global Pass. When booking the ticket, the form asked for my country of residence. My residence country is the UK, yet, I read in the T&C that I would need to prove my residence at some point. As an EU citizen, I only have digital proof, an e-visa, to prove my residence in the UK. I also have an official document from the German authorities confirming my de-registration from my old residence and indicating my new residence in the UK. However, I don’t have physical proof from the UK authorities of my residence. In related threads, people suggested setting the country of residence to the country of citizenship (in my case Germany) instead. However, I want the one outbound and one inbound journey to apply to my actual country of residence, i.e., the UK.Has anyone dealt with a similar issue and found a solution? Thanks!
[Emergency] Paid for mobile eurail pass, but didn't receive the confirmation email and cannot find any orders in my account
Dear eurail support team,@Nanja @Leo @Annie. (Our trip will start in 2 days!) We paid for the mobile eurail pass 8 hours ago (around 14:00 UTC, 11/16) using the debit card.Still we did not receive any confirmation email. Besides, any orders cannot be found in the account information.. However, there is a confirmation that we already paid for the pass by the history of the debit card. Would you check what is the problem and what we should do? When you contact me (DM?), I can give our eurail account and order details, SIncerely,wj777
As on https://www.drehscheibe-online.de/foren/read.php?030,10260330 a woman who’s working for SBB reports, they will sell only the digital interrail pass from 01.01.23.People who want a paper pass, will be forced to order it (and not get it anymore immediately at the station!) and pay extra fees for this.Is this going to be the same in whole Europe or is only SBB starting to do it like this?
Date of birth information is wrong by one day on Eurail.com website but correct on Mobile pass for 4 travellers.
Hi,I recently purchased a 5 day in 1 month Eurail Global pass for my family. As I was planning for my trip, I noticed that the date of birth was off by one day for all travellers on my Eurail.com website account under the “Trips and travelers” section for “Upcoming trips”. When I checked my Mobile Pass on the Planner App under “My Pass”, the date of birth for all travellers was correct. I like to make sure that all the information on the website account is aligned with the Mobile pass on the Planner app.Should I be concerned about this and how do I get this fixed without messing up the info on the mobile pass version? Thank You!
Hi!Me and my friend bought two Global Pass (mobile pass) and each activated them on their device. Tomorrow, 1st August will be our first day of travel. A few days ago I activated my Global Pass on IPad, subsequently I deactivated my pass and I reactivated it on my friend’s device who duplicated his trip and linked my pass to it. I would like to know if everything is ok and if the pass will work correctly.Thanks
