I have made seat reservations for:
Manchester - London (gwr.com, free, can rebook if needed)
London - Paris, b-europe.com, Eurostar (same day as above journey)
Paris - Strasbourg, b-europe.com, TVG INOUI (although it was €4 booking fee not €2 so not 100% sure I booked it on b-europe.com - might have been sncf-connect.com?! But I can’t see how to make eurail seat reservations on there...)
Strasbourg - Vienna, oebb.at Nightjet
Whenever it asked for pass cover number I entered my mobile pass number (purchased via myinterrail.co.uk) as on b-europe.com it says this is the number in the mobile pass confirmation email.. but I’ve since read this is not a pass cover number and these can be generated here - https://www.eurail.com/en/book-reservations#/generatePassCoverNumber
Which is not made clear anywhere at all!
Do I need to worry or will this be fine?
Second question… do I need to mark my Manchester - London and London - Paris journeys as outbound journeys in the app?
I have a 3 month continuous pass and believe the eurail pass can be used in the UK so why do I need to mark inbound/outbound journeys?
Also correct me if I’m wrong but I see a lot of stuff about avoiding using “travel days” - but with a continuous pass I don’t think I need to worry about this as I don’t think it really applies to me?
