Does Eurail pass include local trains within certain cities (for example Rome)?
I am planning a trip to Europe and would like to see a couple different countries so I am considering the Eurail. It is clear that the Eurail pass will allow be to travel between large cities and counties, but I cannot find any information on trains/busses within cities.So, does the Eurail pass also include any trains/busses within specific cities (for example Rome or Florence)? Or is it EXCLUSIVELY for travel BETWEEN cities and countries?Thank you for any information you can provide!

Seat reservations in Spain
Hi. I searched for journeys in Spain and it doesn’t leave me book seat reservations on them. Then when I click to see the option of more information it says that I can book them on the main station on Spain. And what about if I try to book them there and there is no more space in the train?
QR code of Pass not showing
Hello, we are actually in a train from Frankfurt to Berlin, without reservation needed but the controller asked us a ticket with a QR code to scan it. But we thought that the QR code was only for train with reservation ! So we went on the rail planner but we didn’t find any QR code, and the controler start to ask us to pay 100€, until I checked a second time on the rail planner and we finally find the QR code who appeared few minutes after. It’s that a bug of interrail ? Or do we have to print all the tickets with the QR code even with trains without reservation ?
Wrong country of residence
Hello,Last week i started my interrail trip from Vienna - city of residence - to Stuttgart. I was using one of my inbounds/outbounds and everything was fine so far. Today I tried to book my trains to France and realized that the country of residence, mentioned on my pass is Germany - maybe cause I have German id, but just living here for summer -. Is there any chance to change the county of residence after already activating the pass? Would be really helpful cause I planned Germany as the spot where I will start all my travels.thanks
Eurail, Interrail or My Interrail for UK resident?
Very confused… on this page: https://www.eurail.com/en/help/interested-in-eurailing/do-i-need-a-eurail-or-an-interrail-pass it says “A Eurail Pass can only be used by non-European citizens or non-European residents. European citizens can use an Interrail Pass instead, available from Interrail.eu for the same price as a Eurail Pass.”But on https://www.myinterrail.co.uk/interrail-passes/ - it’s all about Interrail passes for UK people? Thanks in advance!

Does Eurail Global pass really include the Heathrow Express?
My answer to this is no, despite it being advertised in the Eurail planner. After a long flight from Australia, trying to activate our mobile pass for the first time, the train attendant tells us it isnt valid...because Heathrow Express isnt part of Network Rail (the UK rail consortium that combines all the tracks). Im aware of this, and I was happy that the Heathrow Express was listed as being part of the Eurail pass. But no, the ticket lady said it wasnt part of the pass and that they had tried to explain to Eurail many times that they werent involved in the scheme but they kept having travellers come up to them (like I did) showing them the Eurail Planner rules/inclusions and expecting to be able to use it. Can anyone else confirm if it really is part of the pass or if it isnt and Eurail are just false advertising?
Researching whether to purchase a one country pass, and on some routes some trains say conditions apply (to a one country pass) while other trains do not. I assumed that meant that some routes took you through a different country, but that doesn’t seem to be the case in one route I’m researching (Venice to Vipiteno, Italy.) It says to check the travel info section for more details, but I can’t find that section.Any help?
Can I use the inbound/outbound journey at any time during my trip?
I'm new to interrail and have two questions that I can't find an answer to so please help ;-)) Can the inbound / outbound journey be at any time of my interrail? so say I go to Italy by car and then start from there and then at some point in the middle, say day 5, I travel into my home country (Germany) and then have the outbound on day 6? and at the end of my interrail I would just go back to Germany by car again. When I go from Italy to lets say the Netherland I would need to change trains in Germany to get there. Does that count as travelling in my own country or is that irrelevant because my home country wouldn't be my final destination? Hope I made myself kind of clear and am thankful for any advice. Greta

'United Kingdom' not available for Eurail Global Pass traveller details
I am a resident of the UK and have a UK passport. This should mean that I buy a Eurail, not an Interrail pass. The purchase is going fine until I come to the ‘Eurail Global Pass Adult traveler’ details. You have to submit a country of residence. But ‘United Kingdom’ is not available. Neither is ‘Great Britaiin’ or ‘GB’ or whatever we are calling ourselves today. What is going on? Am I missing something?
Interrailing during COVID
Hello guys ! My name is Vasileios, I am 24 years old from Patras, Greece, and I am planning to go on an Interrail Trip on 7 countries with my girlfriend on September 2021. I would like to hear your predictions. Do you think it will be possible, provided that from 1st July a European vaccination pass will be available (we are both vaccined)? Has anyone interrailed during these covid times? Thank you for your time and congratulation on the beautiful idea of this forum !
Is it necessary to use the Inbound & Outbound entitlement?
Hi, i’m asking these question for the Interrail pass for my partner. The pass condition stated that “The Interrail Global Pass is valid for travel in your country of residence during one outbound journey and one inbound journey that occur during travel days at any point in your trip” This mean the pass will have 1 inbound & 1 outbound entitlement of the 4 days pass that i’m intending to buy? May i know if it is necessary to use the 1 inbound & 1 inbound ? As my travel itinerary would be Spain flying into London (21st) London to Germany (train 23th) Germany to Paris (train x2 27 & 28th) Paris to Spain (train 31th) So technically speaking i will be using only 1 inbound will that be alright ?
Seriously only ONE inbound and outbound trip with interrail global pass?
Hello! I have a question about outbound/inbound journeys.Is it true, that when you purchase any interrail global continuous pass (It does not matter if 1 month or 3 months long), you have only ONE inbound and ONE outbound journey which you can use through the validity of the pass from your country of residence?Why I am asking: We are thinking about buying a global pass, but this rule does not make sense to me. Why can you purchase a 3-month-long pass when you can't travel from your country of residence to more trips? For example to one week-long trip every month? If you need to step across the border at your own cost, Interrail is almost for nothing, since the costs for crossing the borders are the biggest... One more: If the rule work like this, from where can you use interrail pass? From the last station of your country of the residence or from the first stop abroad?Thanks for any help! :))
Eurail App, Booking seat reservations
I bought the global Eurail pass. It’s the Mobile version. I knew some trains required reservations (didn’t realize nearly all do). I’m uncertain how to book these and don’t want to pay more than I need to. I can see my pass and I have “my journey” saved. There’s a button on the top right of each leg I can click to turn on. I’m not sure what exactly this is though as it doesn’t buy a ticket or reserve a seat, so what’s the purpose? I also am seeing different times/routes on different sights. For example, I saw a London to Amsterdam on May 2nd at 11am on one site, but can’t find it on the Eurail App. I’m not sure if there’s different trains or what? I also notice there is 1st comfort and 1st class premium? I also see some tickets they mail to you?? If seats are selling out, I’d like to buy them in advance (do have 1 overnight train). However, I was also hoping to be as flexible as possible. For example, if I wanted to leave somewhere a day or two early to explore somewhere
