I would like to travel from Germany to the south of England by train at the end of March. On the Internet, I became aware of the Interrail ticket and think that the ticket "Global Pass 4 days in one month" is the most useful for me.However, some things are still unclear to me, since I im going to use the interrrail pass for the first time:
- Does the validity (i.e. the one month) refer to the calendar month or to the month after the start of my first journey. Specifically: I would like to start my trip to England on 27.03. and return in mid-April. Are the three further trips then only possible until the end of March (new ticket for April necessary) or until 27.04.?
- On my trip, I first have to change trains twice in Germany, then later in Brussels/Paris to the Eurostar and finally in London once more. Logically, I will cross several countries. Will the whole trip still count as one of my four possible trips or does Germany-Belgium count as one and Belgium-England each extra?
- If I need two of my four tickets for the outward and return journeys: What do I have to consider for the remaining two journeys? Can I use them for any train in England or are there further restrictions here? For further domestic journeys I am not allowed to use these before my departure/after my return - am I informed correctly in that point?
- Do I have to specify my route/train connection again before the individual journey? Do I have then accordingly train binding?Or can I simply board any train and use my Interrail Pass as a ticket, as long as no extra reservation (as with Eurostar) is necessary?
- If I have to specify my train connection:How does it behave here with passenger rights in case of delay etc., e.g. if I miss the ICE in Germany or in the worst case the reserved Eurostar (not self-inflicted)?
Thank you very much in advance! I am looking forward to answers!
