Train travel in Europe
Hi Community Members,New to the community. Questions:Using 15 days in 2 months Eurail Global Pass, following queries:Florence to Rome before noon; then Rome to Rome Airport in the afternoon. Two trips same day - using one pass day or two pass days? Are reservation fees refundable? Is a reservation linked to a specific train? What happened you need to take a different train, can you transfer the reservation to another train?Sorry to the silly questions.
Cannot get Seat Reservations: London to Paris Eurostar (31 May 2023)
Hello everyone! I need some urgent help. I have a Eurail pass, and I need to travel from London to Paris on 31 May. I cannot seem to get a seat reservation for my husband and I. How can I get a seat reservation? If i were to show up at the Eurostar counters on 27 May when I land in London, can I go to the counter and get a seat reserved since I am unable to pre-book online? Thank you for your help in advance!
Does it take by everybody such a long time to get your paper passes?
Because our mobile passes didn't work, we ordered the 9th of May paper passes. The 16th of May Eurail wrote us that they have send them and we could expect them before of on the 16th of May. The 17th we got a track and trace message that they would arrive the 17 th, between 10.00 and 13.30, later before 22.00 and at 18.00 that they didn't arrive anymore. So we waited all day for nothing.We had to watch track and trace: All the time now: Your parcel is not received or not sorted.Today I contacted Post.NL and now they write that it will be delivered by Extra@Home.Here we can't see again when it will be delivered.Takes it by everybody so much time to get the paper EUrail pass?Bianca
6 day Global vs. separate bookings France Italy
Hello! My family of 4 is going travelling on a London-Paris-Rome trip this summer and I know I need to book our reservations asap. I’m trying to decide on the Eurail Global pass vs. just buying individual tickets. I think all our routes will require supplements on a pass but I’m having trouble seeing how much those will cost so I can compare. (I was able to see what costs are booking individually.)These are our trains:Eurostar London-ParisIntercite nuit Paris-CarcassonneCarcassonne-NiceNice-RiomaggioreRiomaggiore-VeniceVenice-RomeI know normally people here tend to say that in Italy it’s cheaper to go without railpasses, but I do think we are mostly on longer/pricier routes so I’m not sure.Another complication in comparison is my daughter apparently doesn’t need a Railpass (she’s 11) but she would of course need reservations. I assume if I buy passes there is a way to order those reservations but again, I can’t get an estimate.Eurail passes 2nd class are 1064., 1st class 1364., We’d ha

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. ..
can't get the app to work and I can't access the eurail website from my phone
I can't seem to activate my eurail pass using the app, it keeps saying there's an issue and try again later. Then when I try to access the eurail website from my phone it says "You are not allowed to access this page. HTTP error 403" I don't know what to do.
About Eurail pass activation
HelloI bought an Eurail Pass that can be used seven days a month. I'm going on a trip in July, and I set the starting date as the travel date. By the way, can I press the yellow QR code-shaped activation button on My Trip now? It doesn't count as a month from now on, does it?
Free Child Pass
I was ready to purchase my Eurail pass for my family when we travel to several European countries in July. When I looked at the price breakdown, it had a price for two adults (my husband and myself) and one youth (13 years old). Next to the child price (11 years old), it had $0. Great! However, when I added it to my cart, it said I was purchasing 3 Eurail passes—2 adults and one youth. My concern is that my 11 year old won’t have a pass, so therefore we’d have to purchase his train tickets separately. How will the ticket offices know that my 11 year old qualified under a free pass?
I have a question about the trenitalia railpass.I need some clarification about the word “journey” since the pass counts the numbers of journeys and not days.I am planning a Veniz- Palermo trip. which will have a Veniz to Rome via the high speed train and then night train for the Rome-Palermo leg.Is the total journey gonna be 1 (Veniz-Palermo) or 2 (Veniz- Rome and Rome-Palermo)? Thanks.
London to Brussels
For the train from London do you have to book a train through the Eurostar site and then separately pay for a seat through the eurail app? I am going to Brussels and am confused. It seems for the other countries in my trip that maybe I can just buy a 3 day pass to cover my trips from Brussels to cologne, cologne to frankfurt, and frankfurt to Paris. But can I just add a 4th day for my London to Brussels train and then just pay for seat reservation and I am set or do I need to pay separately on Eurostars site for train pass (which is ver expensive compared to just adding a 4th day to my eurail pass) and then pay on the eurial app for the seat reservation.
Question about Eurail Global Pass
First time traveller and a little confused! My initial understanding was that the Eurail global pass would cover my travel throughout Europe EXCEPT for Switzerland (where I thought I’d have to buy the Swiss travel pass separately). But upon research, it seems that I am able to travel within Switzerland with the global pass, but want to confirm. I’m going to post my itinerary below (June 11-24). My overall question is - will the EUrail global pass work for travel between these destinations? Rome → Zurich → Lucerne → Interlaken → Bern → Cologne → Amsterdam → Brussels → Paris Thank you so much!
