I was just I formed by nightjet that Germany will be going on strike from 2000 GMT on Sunday (May 14) until at 2200 GMT on Tuesday (May 16). This is during the window in which we are traveling via train to Germany and then on to the Netherlands. They did not say that our tickets were cancelled, just that I should postpone my travel. Is that the same as canceling my ticket or will they still have limited service and I should continue as planned? As for postponing that is not possible, we are on holiday travel and will need to get back to the Netherlands to catch a flight. How should I proceed?
Using the interrail pass in Switzerland in January and now again in March I must experience that some SBB trains e.g. between Kreuzlingen and Weinfelden, or Weinfelden-Winterthur are not bookable anymore Lines which are marked as valid in the Swiss Interrail map Map of Switzerland_SBB.JPG (1124×795) (interrail.eu) can no longer be booked (and I booked them with my old pass in January): But it worked beforehand, e.g. example from January:and the exactly same train in March:How could this happen and why is there no information about on the page that not all SBB trains are supported anymore or at least a current map of supported trains?
Hi 😀I have interrail global pass, and want to like to do a reservation for AVI 9742 from LYON PART DIEU (2:30pm) - Barcelona Sants (7:32pm). I get over the interrail seat reservation this error message: “It seems no price offer is available right now. It is possible that all pass holder seats are sold out. Please check 'More information' and try other ways to book this seat reservation, or buy a separate full fare ticket to board. You need to buy a seat reservation to board.”So i called SNCF and they said to me, this train doesn’t exist, so it’s an failure from interrail website. Could somebody confirm that to me? That i would look after a different connection. More background information why this train: So I will start the trip in Munich, and want to be before 9pm in Barcelona. so I found the connection (5am start in munich - 7:32pm arrival in barcelona) Thanks for you help!

Duda sobre precios... buenas noches! Quisiera saber si los precios que apsrecen en la sección de reserva de asientos de la página de Eurail solo son por la reserva o incluyen costo del pasaje... (tengo pase global y de paris a Londres me aparece en la sección de reserva de asientos un costo promedio de 67 dlls... ¿ese costo sólo es por la reserva de asientos?)

We’re after a little further help planning our first, and likely last, trip to Europe in April/May, 48 days, flying into Rome and out of London. Because we’re in our mid 60’s, we need fewer stops, longer stays. We’ve purchased a 15-travel-day Eurail pass and already had some incredibly valuable advice from this web site, and we’re just trying to make sure our plan is sensible & we’re not missing something “unmissable”.We love the old architecture of Europe, mountains, lakes, scenery and wildlife, not so much the beach scene. The places on our “must see” list are as follows, listed in the order we are thinking about traveling:Tuscany,Lake Como.The Swiss alps – recommended was the Bernina & Albula railways between Tirano and Chur.Venice.Pordenone – I have family there so it’s 5 nights takenVienna.Zurich.The road from Dijon to the outskirts of Paris, which we hope to drive. I can make all the above work, but it’s a messy zig zag Como to Chur to Tirano to Venice, and I am not sur
I am travelling on a global pass one month first class fare between England (origin) France and Spain. I am travelling home from south of Barcelona to Newcastle, UK. I am travelling with an assistance dog which make things a little more complicated. I travelled from Barcelona Sants to Latour du Carol on the 14.30 train on Friday 21st April. I had also booked onwards travel to Paris on the night train from Latour du Carol (Pyrénées) to Paris, Fri 21st April, dep. 18.49 arriving 22nd April 06.33. My Eurostar was booked for Paris-London on Sat 22nd at 09.13. At 18.00 SNCF cancelled the night train and I was stranded in Latour du Carol. The staff at Latour were inexperienced and unhelpful and told me to head back to the next town (Puigcerda, 4 mins away by train, but in Spain) and stay the night, getting the train in the morning back to Latour de Carol. This was a bad idea as I arrived in puigcerda and there were no trains in the morning and no one to help. I got a cab back to Latour (€40

Hi! This is my first post in the community. Please forgive me for not introducing myself, I am in need of desperate advice! Thank you in advance to whoever is kind enough to help out :)Basically, my girlfriend and I are travelling around Europe for a month and 10 days. Starting 9 October, we will be in Slovenia for roughly 10-12 days and then from there will begin using our pass (let's say 20/21st of October). The pass that we are looking at is the 10 days in 2-month pass (Eurail).The countries that we would like to visit (and in order) are Italy, Spain, France*, Netherlands, Germany, Czechia, Poland*, Hungary*, and Slovenia/Croatia. We return to Slovenia as our flights are from Zagreb, Croatia. Countries with a “*” are ones that we may/or may not visit depending on whether we have enough travel days.A breakdown of possible dates:21 October - Trieste to Parma 22-24 October - We may want to use a travel day to see Pisa and Florence25 October - Parma/Pisa to Barcelona (this looks like a
I’m traveling Standard Premier London to Amsterdam in June and booked directly with Eurostar, so I can change the assigned seat. I have chosen a seat that says “window seat” but came to find out there is no window at all, it is simply not an aisle seat, but no window. I want to pick a forward facing seat with a window, preferably a single seat format. But it appears there are very few of those with a window in Coach 1. I was wondering if there is a website like seat guru for airplanes, that tells which are ok seats on Eurostar and which are really bad seats.
Dear experienced travellers, I am planning a trip to Italy this summer with my family by train, but have some uncertainties about the travelling days/planning. Hopefully anyone in this community can help me with some advice. Our plan is to travel from our homecity 's-Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands to Rome for a week or so, than to a small city underneath Napels (to visit Napels, the Vesuvius and Pompei) for a few days and then return home. My most important question, are the outward and inward journey to our homecountry included in the 4 days of the 'global pass 4 days'?A bit more explanation with the schedule for our first trip from home to Rome (:-)) that would look something like this:20.09u Departure 's-Hertogenbosch 23.44u Arrival Koblenz 00.49 Departure Koblenz 06.20 Arrival Basel 06.28 Departure Basel 10.40u Arrival Milano 10.58u Departure Milano 14.10 Arrival Roma If I understand correctly, this will mean two travelling days. Our first outbound journey from 's-Hertogenbosch
Hey guys,I've planned a trip to norway at the end of August through Germany, Denmark and Sweden. I planned every train and waited for them to be opened. I look for the trains I want and it says that "the seats reserved for pass holders" are all taken. So does it mean I won't be able to make my trip? Thanks
Based in London, I’m a senior, solo traveller, and in Italy only having seen Rome and Florence briefly some 50 years ago, Then a sad trip to Venice (nothing to do with the city) in 2010.I want to get to know Italy, particularly its food and wine. I’m a freelance writer and translator.I am attending a 1-week retreat in Perugia from 15 April and I would like to travel in Italy for 3 weeks after that, from 22 April to 13 May.Should I get an interrail pass for ??? days travel in 1 month?Can I use the Interrail to get to Perugia from the airport when I arrive from London? I can fly into Florence or Bologna. The 2nd class Interrail pass does not let you take airport train in Florence, it seems. Does this make sense economically?How do I get the most of the Interrail Pass in my situation.I am not interested in being everywhere, but rather in staying in a place at least 2,3 days and get to know it and its people.The wines I adore from Italy are not the expensive big names, no Super Tuscans
Please help I have an issue finding trains in Slovenia. I have contacted the zendesk support but I wanted to ask this here too.I have been told that my app is not up to date. I am on 34.1.0 but am told there is a newer version with the timetables in Slovenia working.I have been to Google Play but I get this: I can't find a way to force my rail app to update itself.I had automatic updates turned on so I'm not sure what is going on.
I am travelling to Europe for the first time, flying into Rome and home from London. I am considering a Eurail, first class, 10 day travel pass, valid for 2 months. The hope is to see Florence, Cinque Terre, Milan (also Lake Como) , Venice, Fiume Veneto (near Pordenone), Vienna, Prague, Munich, Zurich, Lyon, Paris and London.I started using the Eurail travel planner and found that it can’t find many of the places I want to go. I know that some of the lesser towns (e.g. Lake Como) will probably mean a separate bus trip or hire car. However I need to know where the main train lines run so I can make sure I can get to places I need to get to, or how close I can get them, especially Fiume Veneto where I have family. I thought Eurail was linked to all train lines in Europe, but I am worried that it may not be ideal for my needs.Also, I am unsure if I am better off booking every accommodation and every train trip before I leave home, or is it easy enough to book train travel and accommodatio
Hello! We will be traveling in Switzerland for 6 days in late May 2023. We have identified several small quaint towns to potentially visit while there. My concern is the lists came from large national publications with millions of subscribers. The towns may no longer be small or quaint when we visit!Can you recommend some small, charming towns/villages for us to consider?Thank you for your time and consideration. Jim Waters
Hello Community!My sister and i are planning our first interrail trip for 4 weeks in may and June. Because it will be our first interrail tour, we hope to get some help from you. I informed myself a lot, but I'm very confused, because of so much informations. First I will show you the route we want to do:We will start at 25.05.2023 in Valencia?Then: Valencia to Alicante, Alicante to Granada, Granada to Cordoba, Cordoba to Sevilla, Sevilla to Faro, Faro to Lagos, Lagos to Lisbon, Lisbon to Madrid, Madrid to Barcelona, Barcelona to Marseille, Marseille to Nice, Nice to Venedig or Nice to Milan, at the end back to Germany.My questions:I noticed that there are seat reservations required in Spain. Can I book them in advance from Germany at a DB shelter? Or do I have them to book on a RENFE site? First, we thought about buying a global pass, 15 days in two months. Do you think it's better to take less days and use buses instead of trains? Are buses like ALSA a good opportunity to travel chea
Hi, I’m completely new to using the Interrail Pass and already I’ve made a couple of fairly major blunders. Here is the latest: I have a Global 1st Class Pass on my phone (1 month). I planned to return to my home town of Newcastle in the UK from Antwerp (via Brussels) on 2nd May so I scheduled the trip in the Rail Planner and then applied for and received a seat reservation for that date. However, I have just noticed that somehow my Eurostar journey appears to be scheduled on my phone for the 1st May, and also at a later time of day (14.04) than the reservation on the 2nd May (12.56). How serious is all this, and can I do anything to change my travel day to 2nd May to fit in with the reservation I have paid for on the 2nd May?
