We're planning an Interrail and we want to visit the cities shown on the map, but we don't know if a 10 travel days in 2 months pass will be ok, or if we need to skip one city. Interrailers, is this pass OK? The thing is, the interrail website recommends the Global Pass (10 travel days within 2 months), but the Rail Planner App seems to tell we need more travel days, as it displays that (+1 day) sign
Hallo miteinander!Ich würde mir gerne ein Interrail-Ticket kaufen, habe aber Probleme bei der Bestellung. Wenn ich im Warenkorb auf “Zu Angaben zum Reisenden” klicke, passiert nichts. Daher kann ich die Bestellung auch nicht abschließen.Ich hoffe, ihr könnt mir weiterhelfen.Viele GrüßeMaria
We are looking to travel from Lyon down through to Pisa with our two children in July / August this year. We would be looking to go from Lyon, Cassis, Nice, Savona, Genoa, La Spezia, Forte Marmi Sera and end in Pisa, so 7 days of travel. Would the family ticket covering 7 days within 1 month be the right ticket? And would it be right that we would then need to select dates of travel ahead of time and stick to those dates?
Hello. I’ve bought a Global Flexi pass (4 days) and prepared a trip only for two days. Then I connected my pass to this trip and activated it on the day of travel. Everything went well. Now I want to continue with my travels, by adding a travel day. The problem I have is that when I create a journey I can't connect it to my mobile pass. Only paper pass option is offered. I do not know where the problem is. The only thing that comes to my mind is that I should have all four days planed before I activated my pass. Hope that is not the case otherwise interrail looses all the beauty and spontaneousness of traveling.Can somebody please help me. I wanna be able to continue my travel.Thanks, Biba.
Hi all!I am planning my first ever interrail adventure and i’m torn between the 7days within 1 month or 22days pass. I will be travelling for 3 weeks and am planning to stop in around 6 cities (Lyon, Paris, London, Brussels, Amsterdam and Vienna). Now i am wondering if the global pass is also valid for public transport (busses, metro, tram etc.) within the cities. If so, i’d prefer the 22days pass. Do you guys have any tips and recommendations? Thanks so much! :)
Hi everyone,Starting in April I will be traveling to the following countries: The Netherlands, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. I plan to take the train as much as possible, so it seems like the 3 month Global pass would be the best option for me, but I am not clear about whether or not the pass allows me to travel within a country? For example if I wanted to take a train from Amsterdam to Rotterdam or from Berlin to Munich, can I use the Global Pass to get these tickets for free? Or if I wanted to take the local transit within Berlin (S-Bahn) for example? I will be spending 5 weeks of the trip just in Berlin taking an intensive language course so this is very important for me to understand. Would appreciate clarification on this. Thank you.
Hello I’m planning to travel from Istanbul to Western Europe in early Feb.I understand the only way is to book tickets while in Istanbul.Are there multiple options to travel from Halkali? I see some suggestions to travel to Dimitrovgrad, Plovdiv or Sofia (they seem to be on same line and I see two Dimitrovgrad on interrail map - one west and one east of Sofia).is same from Sofia onwards i.e I have to book while in Bulgaria? Any up to date information would be helpful Regards
On May 11, 2022, I purchased a 1-month Interrail Global Pass for 2 adults and 2 children. My children were born in January 2019 (5 years old) and November 2021 (3 years old). I need tips and advice so I can travel this way. Please help. If I think I can't travel with my kids1. I can travel alone. (so please advice me some groups to travel with them)2. Can I sell the ticket to someone?
Hello I have a question regarding the use of the in and outbound days. My plan is to go from near Munich to Hamburg and then the next day from Hamburg to Kopenhagen (as the travel time from my hometown which is south of Munich to Kopenhagen would be way too long for one day) Is it possible to use in this case both days (in- and outbound) for these two days? thank you for your replies!
Hello I’m about to start using my 3 month continuous interrail pass. My home country is UK.I understand I can only use one inbound and outbound eurostar. Does the outbound eurostar have to be at the beginning (i.e the first train journey) and the inbound the last one ?What happens if I use an inbound eurostar after 3 months - does it mean I cannot use for last 1 month? regards
Hello Eurail Community, I am wondering, if i have Eurail 4 days in a month flex pass, say that:Purchase date --- 5 jan 2023Activation date --- 15 mar 2023First travel date --- 16 mar 2023Second travel date --- 19 mar 2023 (some trains and including NIGHTJET)Third travel date --- 21 mar 2023Fourth travel date --- 25 mar 2023 (some trains and including NIGHTJET)Last vailidity date ---- ? my questions are:Are the arrangements above valid?

Hola Viajeros , soy nuevo en esto y tengo muchísimas dudas jejeje en mayo inicio un viaje en el cual recorreré varias ciudades (Madrid - Barcelona - Paris - Londres - Bruselas- Amsterdam- Roma - Florencia compré el pase mensual y ya tengo los boletos ( QR) , resulta que en ciertas estaciones me pide reserva de asientos , y aquí es donde tengo muchas dudas. considerando la fecha , podré hacer la reserva de asientos apenas llegue a cada ciudad ? si esto fuera así, se respeta ese horario del ticket que tengo en el eurail , o solo son horas estimadas ? de no conseguir la reserva para ese día que es lo que puedo hacer , aún teniendo el boleto ?
After seeing many posts with advice on calculating the value of buying tickets v buying a pass I actually went back over my last pass ( a 10 days in 2 months first class pass) and, using 2023 prices, worked out three options - Pass + reservations, Earliest non-flexible fare for the same trains and the fully flexible fare.The details for anybody to check are below but the summary is - First Class pass plus reservations would cost 663 euros, Early saver fares (No exchange or refunds) would cost 940 euros and fully flexible tickets (the closest to the flexibility offered by a Global pass) would cost 1804 euros.I appreciate this is only one personal itinerary, and in Western Europe, but it may help newbies to see how to do the calculation on the perennial question of pass v tickets.It might also help show how reservation fees add to a typical itinerary. We took many optional reservations so added them in.For the record we took 2 separate one-way journeys with the one pass. PASS
My girlfriend and I will be travelling Europe from England in July this year. Now I don’t mean to sound stupid, but I can not seem to grasp or understand the idea of the pass, reading the reviews you pay for a global pass but then still end up paying out a shed load in reservation costs?can I use the pass to access all trains and do all trains require reservation? Is this pass worth buying to travel for a month round Europe, 8 different countries? Is there any tips anyone can recommend for doing this trip? (Planes are a no go due to medical issue).
We are planning a trip to Switzerland in May. We will be traveling from Paris to Berne.We would like to extend four to five extra days and travel on a couple of the Switzerland Scenic train trips.Can you tell me if we should have a Swiss Rail Pass or if the Eurorail will work as we will use that to get from Paris to Berne?Can you recommend three days of travel on trains, boats, etc that would get us to see the best of Switzerland and start and end up in Berne? We are senior citizens and really do not plan on hiking or doing lots in many cities, just seeing the views and getting off and on for meals and overnight. Thank you.
Hi All, If I am buying a eurail global pass, every trip that I can found at the rail planner apps is means that I can take the train? For example, I am planning a trip to Amsterdam, can I take Amsterdam Centraal to Zaandijik Zaanse Schans without paying extra cost to visit? Or, London St Pancras to Canterbury West also include in the eurail global pass?
