Hi,I’m new here and I don’t know exactly where to begin.I’m german and my with best friend from Kenya we want to travel throughout Europe and see Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin and Vienna. So my question is: on the travel day with the Global pass, I can travel for example from Stuttgart to Paris and that counts a one Travel day? We’re staying 2 nights in Paris and take the train to Amsterdam afterwards, which would be the Second Train Travel day, right`?I’m getting a little confused, so that’s why I’m seeking for help. :) Thank you in advance.

I have never purchased a Eurail pass before. I am traveling from Barcelona to Logrono, Spain. I want to take the train at 8:45am and it arrives in Logrono at 12:52pm. That’s the only train time that works for me. On the return one week later, I need to go from Logrono, Spain to Barcelona airport. Again, only one time that works, the 7:30am train, arriving at 1pm to airport. I can see the different train companies online to buy a ticket directly from the individual train company. Do I also need to get a Eurail pass? I’m not sure what I will be doing regarding traveling within the week I’m there, but I expect I will be staying in the Logrono area the who time. Thank you for your help in explaining what I need to purchase.

I am looking at travelling by train from my home in UK to Portsmouth (UK) to catch a ferry to Spain. The ferry would leave UK on the evening of the day I set off from home and arrive in Spain the following day.I would then travel in Spain and Portugal on the train using my Interrail pass. My return journey would be the same in reverse. Could I use my Interrail pass for these rail journeys in the UK even though I will be leaving / returning to UK on a ferry, not by train (such as Eurostar) ?Many thanks Bob

Hi, I understand that I can travel outbound and inbound in my home country. In my case I would have to take a big detour to be able to reach the border of my country by train. Would that be problematic?And would I have to cross the border on the outbound day? Or could I also travel to the border and buy an ordinairy ticket to cross the border the next day?
Hello, I have question about the manual reservation for an interrail ticket.I have 7 travel days for one month and some journeys are not shown, so I have to do it manual. And at the end, it is not shown on the map. Furthermore, I do not know which train I need to take because if you make the reservation manual, the app does not show which train you should take. I do not know what I need to do and if the manual ticket would be valid. Did someone has a scandinavian journey with the interrail ticket? If yes, I would be happy to hear about that moreHere is an example for a manual ticket reservation:
Hi everyone,My family (2 adults, 2 children) and I already have Eurail passes but unfortunately I’m not an experienced Eurail traveller, so I apologise in advance if this is a silly question. We have already purchased and activated the Eurail pass for two days of travel earlier in December.We will be travelling from Vienna (Wien) to Prague (Praha) on Saturday 30 December 2023, preferably leaving around 10am. From what I can see, most of the trips listed on that day have “Reservations unavailable”. My question is: can we just go to the train station on the day and use our Eurail passes to book whatever seats are available, or does this mean that there are no seats available on those trains anymore?Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!Kind regards,Rob
no problem to find trains from Tropea to Villa San Giovanni and from Messina Maritime to Palermo. But when I try to book a ticket for a passenger on the ferry between Villa San Giovanni to Messina Maritime, I get constantly for all ferries “a fully booked” reject?? From early in the morning till late in the evening, on working days and during weekends. Can somebody explain to me whether it is necessary to make a reservation on those ferries? Is capacity on those ferries a regular problem?
I have a trip starting in 10 days. The guide says try to book trips weeks in advance. My pass activated starting on travel day. I keep trying to schedule my trains to get my ticket on app and keep getting “Sorry we don’t have train times for these dates yet -...”. It seems they only have times for about five days out right now (Germany). Has anyone else navigated this issue and what did you do? The recommendation and the capability of the app are at odds. The app is also very buggy (crap) and there does not appear to be good clear consistent guidance and no support.I don’t mind doing it at at station while traveling but I’m hearting the trains are really full this year and if i dont get a reservation early i may not have a seat. traveling with 4 people through 3 countries (Germany, Austria and Czech Republic) between Dec 12 and Jan 1 with 4 people. Have Global ticket 1st class 5 days.
Hi,Received this today and apparently I'm not the only one. This is a big communication error, is there are a plan to send a correction email ? @Camilo. @Mukhammad My passes are not expiring any time soon.- bought in January 2023, used in July-August- bought in November 2023, not yet activatedI'm sure this will confuse a lot of people who might opt for a refund right away.
Hello! I have 3 first names on my passport, one of which is a middle name (mothers maiden last name). As the first name box when getting the passes has a character limit of 20, I couldn’t fit all of it. Would that become an issue with identification purposes boarding the train?Thank you
Hi guys. I know this question has been asked several times. It has been answered through this forum that the Eurail Global Pass does cover the Tirano to Milano Central services by Trenitalia Regional train (eg Trenord 2827). The issue is the above service is not listed in the Rail Planner apps. Kindly please help me on how to book the Trenord Tirano to Milano Central journey via Rail Planner apps. I will travelling there above route before this coming Christmas. Thanks guys.
