Hey Interrail community,I’m travelling with a mobile Global Pass with my family with residence in Germany. We started our journey in Berlin at 9pm with an overnight train to Offenburg (border with France) arriving the following day at 6am and from there change to a TGV to Paris at 7am. As expected this consumed two travel days. What it was unexpected is that this consumed both out-/inbound days in all our tickets.My return journey is with the same overnight train in Germany (already reserved). Asking the personnel in the train and train stations they all coincided this is not correct. They gave me some tips for the next time, to split the trip (my second trip starting in Strasbourg across the border, instead of Offenburg) or indicate the first outbound train in the app starting the next day.To fix our current situation they suggested to contact Interrail’s service center, but since this is hard to reach, here I am 😀. What can I do to recover the inbound day?I did this same journey mul
Hello!I know that we can have “one outbound trip to cross the border”. But I’d like that a bit better defined for my case … specifically, we live in Manchester, so can we, in one day take these trips outbound:Manchester → London (on Avanti); andLondon → BrusselsWe’ve read ‘one outbound trip’ as one overall journey not as one single ticketSo, can we outbound Manchester → Brussels, one Avanti, one Eurostar in one day as our outbound trip?
I'm looking for guidance on whether I should get the Swiss pass or Eurail pass.This will be for one adult and one 6 yo (she gets rides free) Below is my itinerary.Day 1 Paris to GenevaDay 2 to Montreaux(Golden Line pass)LucerneDay 3 (Titlis)Day 4 (Golden Round Trip)Day 4 Zurich. Based on my research, (All amounts in EUR)1. Let's say Paris to Geneva costs $60 for 2 in advance.2. Seat reservation of $30x2 Eurail3. Both passes get me rides on the GoldenPass.4. Titlis costs 129 w Eurail, 62 for SP5. Golden roundtrip both have the same $41 surcharge. I should factor what I'll assume to be small amounts for local trips on the tram/bus if I do not have the SP.I will need 3 days of the WP 257 and the minimum for Eurail is 4 days at 194 andThey both come about the same? $420 or so? Factor in local trips in Lucerne and Zurich, I probably should get the SP as it’s more convenient than scrambling for change to get tram tickets?Not staying city center in Geneva, Lucerne. Thanks
I’ve got 4 global passes on my phone and we will be traveling in September. I have set up almost all our trips on the RP but I have not activated our passes because I’m nervous about accidentally starting the clock too soon. But, I’m worried because when I look at the journeys in My Trip, I don’t see the toggle switch that is frequently referred to. Will that appear on each journey once I activate our passes?Probably a dumb question, but my nerves will really appreciate any answers from the community on this.Thanks much,John
Travelling around Germany last week, I found myself in the situation where I was able to catch an earlier train than planned as it was delayed.Adding the journey to my mobile pass however was quite a hassle as it resulted in an error message saying something like “it looks like you're still on another train”. As a result it was impossible to add the respective train without removing the train I arrived on from my pass first.Although I understand why the error message appeared (I arrived in Hamm on a train with arrival at 16.24 hrs, the train I changed to originally would have departed at 16.20 hrs so in theory this was an impossible change), I don't understand why there is no option at all to override that error and add the train anywayIn this case I ended up in first removing the train I arrived on from my pass, then adding the delayed train I took. And after disembarking at my destination doing the whole thing in reverse again to fix the gap in the statistics again.Shouldn't this be
Hello I am planning a trip from Munich to Venice, then Florence, and finally back to Munich. To save money, I purchased an Interrail pass.When I tried to book seats using the Interrail website, I noticed that it costs more than 130 euros for 2 adults and one child under 7 for just a one-way journey from Florence to Munich.For the outbound travel, I managed to book a ticket using the DB website, which only cost me less than 9 euros.Now, I have a few questions:How can I book seats for my Interrail pass? Is there a specific website where I can book seats for my travel? Should I use the Interrail pass for traveling between Venice and Florence as well?I want to make the most cost-effective choices for my trip, so any advice or recommendations are welcome. Thank you!
Hello!Can anyone tell me how do I have to write my train routes on the pass? Most of the train routes I have planned I have to change trains and do transfers between cities, so I am not sure if I have to write all the changes, or just the start and final point.Thank you :)
So I have a Eurail pass and intent to use it from mid-August of this year to mid-September. I see that (unsurprisingly) I need seat a seat reservation to take a night train from Augsburg Hbf to Budapest-Kelefoeld on Wednesday, September 6. The Eurail app says that a “Bed in Shared compartment” is 36 euros per person (reasonable). But the Eurail website that actually sells the reservations says $715 for a family of four (no where near 36 x 4 = $144).So I went directly to the rail company operating the train: “Euro Night”. The news is a bit better that to get a Couchette carriage Compartment” for all four of us it says 264 euros. That’s better than $715 of course, but no where in “Euro NIght” did I put my Eurail credentials, so I’m wondering if I am paying for the pass + seats. In other words, if Euro Night doesn’t ask for Eurail, what good is Eurail?Or am I missing something and there is a way to get it cheaper by just getting the seats (not the pass)?? I am already regretting a
I have activated a four day mobile flex pass and completed the initial trip without problems. But when I return to “My Trips” to assign a trip to a second day’s travel, there is no slider bar available to make the transfer. I read somewhere that the transfer should be done on the day of travel or even just prior to boarding the train. Is this true? If so, that doesn’t offer much time to resolve last minute issues.
My wife and I have global passes, and are meeting our son, who does not have a global pass and is joining us for only part of the trip. I am trying to make train rez on a train from Budapest to Prague for the three of us, so we can be seated together. The app does not allow me to do this. Any suggestions?ThankyouChris and Patti
Hello together,I plan on going on my first interrail journey in about a month with a 7 day global pass. And I know that one can split their days of travel over the whole month, still I'm not sure about the following topic:I think of visiting spain for around a week, using 3-4 of my travel days, and visiting Amsterdam for a Weekend, using 2 of those travel days. Still, I plan on coming back to my country of residence in between these journeys and I recently heard, that with an interrail pass you can only leave/arrive your country of residence once. So, what I am basically asking is: Is that true? I did not find an answer addressing this issue, maybe someone else knows. Thank you in advance,Lisa :)

I’ll be travelling through the Baltic states (from Warsaw to Helsinki) and there are no timetables in Interrail for them. I have a four day interrail pass, and I found the route I want to take on other websites. Before I add it to my pass manualy, how do I make sure, that the train tickets for that rout are covered by my pass?
Hi everyone,i’m going soon on a france Tour (France-Germany Pass) which says it has 7 travel days, what i’d like to know is: can i take as many trains as i want on a travel day or one journey for each of these 7 days within a month ? Second question: I know the pass can be linked to only ONE trip, but is it possible to change the journeys even after connecting that trip to the pass ? because i’m not sure if i want to go to Marseille or Lyon as the last trip) i’m grateful for any help!
Our departure is coming up. Friday is the day and we are very excited. I have initiated our ÖBB train tickets and my global passes say they are ready to travel, so I am assuming there is nothing more to do with that. I don’t see a spot where it says to do anything with SNCB. Does anyone know if I have to activate them?
I wanted to exchange this 7-day passe for a 5-day pass, so, as said on the site (https://www.interrail.eu/en/ interrail-passes/ordering-info/refund-exchange-policy)I bought the 5-day one that I actually needed and I asked the refund of the one that I have bought by mistake (the 7-day one), however I haven't received any confirmation email about the refund and I have not received the money(264-15=249€). Please could you please help me, I don't know if I'm making something wrong or if this just takes a lot of time.
Hi! I would like to know how I can to arrive from Warszawa to Cologne.We arrive to Warszawa on 11 August at 12:00 am and we have to take a plane in Cologne 13 August at 6:10 am. We don't know how to do this route because the trains I find require a reservation but they are full and they don't allow reservations. Do you know where I can book separately? Do you know of any alternative routes through other countries that give us time to arrive?Thank you!Pilar
