Hi!I’m planning on interrailing from the end of July to early/mid September. I just wanted to double check before I buy- the Black Friday discount for two months continuous says that the latest date of travel is the 31st July. Does this mean that the travel dates (if I start as late as possible) will be from 30th July- 30th September? It also says about activating it from the 1st June or before, which I understand to be adding passport detail and first train information. Is this when the first travel day is activated from- I assume not as the latest it says to travel from is the 31st July but want to make sure before I buy it! Thank you!
Hello, I am planning my scandinavian trip with the interrail ticket, but I need some help. The issue is that I want to go from Germany to Copenhagen to Oslo to Stockholm and then to Helsinki, but in the app the Stockholm-Helsinki journey is not shown. You can add the journey manual, but it is too risky. Can someone help me to solve the problem or suggest another option?

HiI’m planning/learning/researching for May 2024 France-only trip. Will need to store 3 mobile passes on 1 iPhone (2 seniors & 1 adult). Have not bought the 7-day eurail pass yet. I am trying to understand how I should name my “folders” on the Rail Planner app.“My Pass”: I believe this is where I will see the 3 passes (once bought & loaded on the iPhone)“Planner”: when I do a test search using the “Planner” tab, after I select a journey, click on “Save journey”, I’m not sure which “folder” I should save in. (See “My Trip” for more details).“My Trip”: this is a problematic area for me. What is the “Trip Name” supposed to be?using dates such as “May 19, 2024”? using locations ? “Paris Est to Colmar”? or just a general name like “France 2024”? I really want to do it correctly as I also need to duplicate journeys/trips to add to the other 2 senior passes on my iPhone. Thank you in advance for your help.
Hey! I am considering about getting the Black Friday discount pass witg 15 travel days in 2 months. It says that the discount ticket must be activated on 1st of June. Does that mean that if I activate it on 1st of June it will be valid until the end of July? I would only make my journey on July.
I have (already) bought a Eurail Global Pass (coming first time to Europe with spouse). Budget is my BIG concern & I want to take full benefit of this pass (for cheap travel wherever possible).I am concerned about traveling to (& within Italy) on this Pass. The major routes that I want to travel (on different days) using this pass include; I want to avoid seat reservations where ever possible and I welcome all any advice.Lucerne to Milan (Dec 23rd) - I’d like to visit nearby attractions like Lake Como on Dec 24th. Milan to Florence (Dec 25th) - Maybe visit Pisa/Cinque Terre on Dec 26th Florence to Naples (Dec 27th) - I know time’s a concern and if I could, I’d love to see Amalfi coat or any other southern towns Naples to Rome (Dec 28th) - I’m in Rome for 3 days before I fly back on 31st Dec.So my questions are:I need help/guidance to find a cheap/free train from the above locations (or some nearby location) till Rome while utilizing Eurail Global Pass. Suggestions if I can add
Hi to everyone!We are planning the following trip:Friday:hometown (location Germany) to Hamburg22.03h Hamburg night train to Stockholm 9.57h (arrival Saturday)Saturday:18.08h Stockholm to Narvik 12.40h (arrival Sunday)But this ‘costs’ only 2 days of the ticket, as the last train is a nighttrain and is an overnight connection and the journey ends with this train.The journey back:Friday:15.11 Narvik to Stockholm 10:09h (arrival Saturday)17:34h Stockholm to Hamburg 8:56h (arrival Sunday)Hamburg → hometown (in Germany)But here it ‘costs’ 3 days, because there is another change of train in Germany travelling home.But, to sum-up, the 5-day ticket would be ok. Am I right?Thank you for your help and feedback!Maybe some stupid questions but I never did Interrail before (although travelling a lot with trains).Bye, Stephan
Dear all!This more a question of common understanding the Interrail-Ticket System...At the moment the 10-days-global-pass is on sale. But, just to get it right, I will only have one day for leaving my home country and one day for travelling back. I cannot make more sereval smaller trips. E.g. I will go to Sweden (in my case from Germany) and come back home, after let´s say 5 days. Then, after three weeks more, I will travel from my home town to Italy. This is not possible, as there is just one travel day for leaving the home country and one coming back. All the other 8 travel days need to be laid between leaving and coming back. Do I get this right?Thank you for feedback!Bye, Stephan
Hello everyone,Hope you can clear this doubt. I want to purchase a 4 Eurail passes 2 for my wife and me and 2 for my kids (9 years and 2 years old). If my 9 year old kid has his eurail pass for free, I do not have to pay for a Swiss Junior Pass right? So he can travel for free?
Hello,I bought a Eurail French Pass and have already made seat reservation. The travel date is December 1, 2023. I would like to exchange the pass to Eurail Global Pass. If I change the pass, do I have to make seat reservation again? Can I use the current seat reservation that I made earlier?Thank you.
I am undergoing an internship in Amsterdam, but my official residence is in France. Unfortunately, I mistakenly selected the Netherlands as my country of residence during the purchase process.Sadly it is impossible to make the change online, but given that the purchase was made less than 10 minutes ago, I kindly request some assistance in rectifying this error. It is crucial for me to have the pass correctly reflect my French residency, as I plan to travel from and back to France.Thank you for your support.

Thank you in advance for a solution to my question.We have done train travel in many countries with/without passes, but this is my first time booking with Eurail Global pass (Flexi 7 days in one month). So, I must be doing something incredibly stupid. I have always used Trainline app to buy tickets in Spain and Italy earlier.I have two of the Eurail First class global passes (my wife and I), downloaded the Rail planner app, created two identical trips (one for each of us), connected the passes (not activated as yet), created multiple journeys under the trips. I couldn’t figure out how to use the info I stored in the trips/journeys to the Interrail reservation system the app takes you to. So, anyway I created a trip for one of my journeys (Milano central to Vienna Wien). Interrail shows the one transfer thru Venezia Mestre and when I choose that and try to book, it asks me for my “country and city of birth”, and doesn’t ask for my passport details. My country of birth is different from
Planning our first Interrail trip commencing on 28 June 2024 for two weeks. Initially we were looking at the 7 days within a month pass for €317 for a senior but have noticed that the promo 10 days within two months at €285 seems better value. This pass needs to be activated before 1 June 2024. My question to more experienced travellers is that I am assuming that we can activate towards the end of May and then use it for our trip a month or so later. I am also assuming that we can activate the pass without using it on a travel day. It would be good to get reassurance that the above plan would work before pressing the button to buy the pass.
