I want to travel from Finland to Germany. I am intending to buy a four-day in one month global travel pass. Two days for the ride to Germany and two days for the ride back to Finland.
Researching about the interrail mobile pass opens up questions about some terminology.
At one point it says:
You can change the trip your Pass is connected to up until you activate your Pass. Once your Pass is activated, you can’t disconnect a trip or connect a different trip.
And at another point they say
Adding a journey to your Pass means it will appear on your ticket ready for inspection on that travel day. You need to add all your journeys to your Pass as you travel so you have a valid ticket for every journey.
The ticket inspector will check the journey details on your ticket, so make sure you add the right journey to your Pass before you board the train.
And I want to know if I understood the terminology correctly.
Journey: A journey is a single train ride.
Trip: A trip is a collection of several journeys. It includes all the single train rides to my destination and all the single train rides to my home city.
Pass: The pass is the product I buy from interrail. Only one trip can be connected to it. I have to have decided all the days and all the trains I use before I activate my pass.
Is this how their terminology is meant? Because I find it very strange. If someone could give me more insights, I would be very happy.
