Hi all, could you please help me to understand what are the benefits of a pass (e.g. 7 days use over 1 month) if I'd mainly plan to travel by train overnight from one city to another by mainly booking sleeping cabines (2 adults + 1 kid)? Indeed we'd plan to make very limited use of standard daily train transports. Is a pass convenient in this case? Many thanks! Steve
Hello wonderful people,I’ve just recently purchased the Global Pass for travel in January 2024. Due to info online that says that that is peak season, I wanted to make some seat reservations to ensure I have a seat. However I can’t seem to make those reservation on the Eurail Rail Planner app even though I can see trains available on the Eurail website. Further reading says I can make seat reservations with the train company so the first train I’m catching is Eurostar from AMSTERDAM CENTRAAL (NETHERLANDS) to BRUSSEL-ZUID (BELGIUM)I have created an account with Eurostar and when I’ve selected the train that I want, where do I put my Global pass details? Thanks! Eurail website shows available trains
We are starting our Journey in Vienna on 22nd Dec , leaving Vienna on the 26th travelling to Salzburg on 26th then to Zurich on 28th , then to Paris on 29th, Can we reserve seats and do we use the same train all the way through? If you could advise which train we should book on. It would appear the timetable is still not available on the eurail website. Do you know when it will be and is it risky to wait? Many thanksRichard
Im planing on making a trip to various countries in january. When i search for the times of the trains on the rail planner app only trains until december 9th appear. Is there a specific date when the train times for december 10th and after (specifically january) will be realeased?Thanks.
I think it very confusing.Pass validity for me means the period i want to travel.F.i. i want to travel in the month november. I activated my pass starting 1st november, why not?My first travel day will be 10th. off november. But the app takes a travel day before i used any. Why is that? All answers talk about deactivating the pass. Why should i deactivate? I just want it not to take traveldays Before the day is there!!I think it is rather confusing, and costly.How can we adjust this?
Hello,je voudrais savoir si vous avez l’expérience en voyage familial avec ce pass.Je souhaiterais partir mi-décembre avec mes deux enfants bas âge (5-7) de France, région La Rochelle à Budapest Hongrie et je ne comprends pas trop ce pass: si je l’achète pour une durée de 4 jours / mois (dans ce cas, c’est de 250€) je peux faire les trajets ce que je veux pendant ces 4 jours ? Ils ont noté qqpart que j’aurais même pas besoin d’acheter les billets, mais quand-même la réservation doit être faite sur un site internet, non? Comment ça se passe, cette réservation? Il faut tout faire sur le site d’Interrail? Dans mon cas, notre voyage se fait avec qq escales; La Rochelle - Paris - Augsburg (ou Vienne) - Budapest. Je peux utiliser ce pass en France pour un trajet qui ne quitte pas directement le pays?Merci d’avance pour les réponses!Zoltan.

The Geneva train station includes official french borders within the train station.Can I use a one-country France pass for my trip or should I buy a Global pass?

No Seat Reservation required? this is the most common thing i saw whilst i trying to reserve my seat from london to Oxford, from London to Bristol and Bath and from Interlaken to geneve. Hence is it mean that, i not need to reserve the seat but i am allow to board the train ?

This is a temporary itinerary They are coming from India and they arrive and depart in UK. Day 1: Travel from London to Paris (via Eurostar)Day 2: Travel from Paris to StuttgartDay 4: Visit to Switzerland Day 7: Travel back to London (Stuttgart to Paris to London) It is a short trip, but i have some questions. Is Eurostar covered under the Global pass? Are regional (undergroudn and metro in Germany) trains covered under this? can they travel inside the city without taking another city ticket? As a student in Germany, can I also use the EU rail pass? If someone knows the answers to this, please help me out. Thank you very much
Dear Eurail Experienced Users,We are as 2 adults + 2kids are planning to visit Paris Disneyland and than travel to Switzerland in the beginning of early November. This is the first time when are going to use trains across Europe and we want to make sure that our plan is valid and will not bring any issues.The plan is to purchase 2 day one country Eurail pass for France and Swiss Pass to cover all our movements across Switzerland:5th of November move from Marne de Vile (Disneyland) to Lyon for short day visit. Same day we will take train from Lyon to Geneva. Then we are going to spend 5 days in Switzerland .12th of November travel from Zurich to Paris to take our flight back home.We did a math and looks like that purchasing Eurail France one country pass is cheaper than buying individual tickets as we didn’t book anything in advance. But the question is - will Eurail pass +Swiss Pass two together cover our train movements from Lyon to Geneva and from Zurich to Paris? If yes, how the pro
My husband and I, along with 2 of our friends are planning a trip to Italy and other countries in December. Our route would look like this:Venice- ViennaVienna- Salzburg (round trip)Vienna- BudapestBudapest- PraguePrague- Rome (considering an overnight train)I was wondering if it makes sense to take a Eurail pass or book single point to point tickets? Also would my pass be valid on any and every train that goes between these countries. Would appreciate suggestions on the above, since in some instances I am still not able to see a timetable which makes buying tickets impossible this early on.
