To ask all about our Passes, reservations & more
Hey,Some users on Twitter but also here in the community have the problem that they do not get informed about the fee to use the DB-ÖBB Eurocity trains to/in Italy. The railplanner app gives some time ago the (wrong) information that you need a reservation, now it writes nothing. The problem now is that DB-ÖBB started to ask an additional fee if you pay the fee on the train.Would be possible to add a notice like please check the special conditions to use this train or something like this? Because how we know only with an Interrail/Eurail Global Pass and an Interrail/Eurail One Country Italy Pass you have to pay, with an Interrail/Eurail German Rail Pass not. On the Railjet trains Venice-Vienna, there is the compulsory reservation notice, but like via Brenner there is only a compulsory fee needed. Here is the information wrong about the compulsory reservation also on the website. If I am not wrong, you get via Interrail Reservation system only the fee and not a reservation. On the Euro
Railplanner app suggests going via Vidin, but there is only 27 min transfer time. Based on limited experience on Bulgarian Rail, this is too short a time for a 4hr plus journey. Has anyone any experience of this route connection？ Any alternative suggestions？thx
Yesterday I bought mobile Interrail passes for myself and my wife and went off straight away to the SNCB site https://www.b-europe.com/EN/Booking/Pass#TravelWish to successfully buy Eurostar reservations London - Paris which were fast selling out for December 17th!I am now looking at going to https://travel.b-europe.com/Eurail-GE/en/booking-tgv#TravelWish to secure onward TGV reservations.I bought the reservations even though the SNCB site said something like ‘paper pass only’ but I had ONE generated pass cover number which I used against the purchase of both my wife and my own passes.I have now read at How do I book my seat reservations? | Interrail.eu “Paper Pass only - Via SNCB: domestic and international trains (Thalys and Eurostar)” and I am getting a little concerned because I think to myself “How could Interrail and SNCB sites both not be updated to reflect what was in my head about the status quo regarding using SNCB for mobile passes?”So questions arise:Are the Eurostar reserv
Dear ALL,I am Wen Shui, Lee from Malaysia. I am in the midst of understanding the Eurail Global Pass (Flexi) as I am going to visit Europe later. Enquiries below is what come across me when I plan my travel itinerary: Understood that using Eurail Global Pass, I can enjoy discount when purchase ticket to Jungfraujoch, Switzerland. Let’s say, I purchase Eurail Global Pass ( Flexi: 4 days in 1 month), I plan to use the pass on 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th of Jul.And I happen to buy ticket to Jungfraujoch on 3rd Jul via website. Here’s the thing curious me: by online purchase ticket, my global pass ticket is forced to activated on 3rd Jul?because if this is the case, my plan with 4 days Flexi Global Pass is not sufficient. Thanks.Wen Shui, Lee7th June 2022
hi everyone,I desperately need to reserve a seat on this connection between Avignon and Madrid on the 23rd of October. The checkout function does not allow me to purchase a ticket and calling the French and Spanish railway was no help either. They all advise me to just see if I can get a ticket at the station. Is there no way to make a seat reservation when you don't live in either France or Spain? Does anyone have tips or suggestions? It would be much appreciated!Best,Jesper.
When I bought two mobile pass for us, we decide to entered our Passport number. We started the journey now but we took our personal ID Cards with us and not the passports. That means we travel now with wrong Passport Number in our mobile passes, one of the Danish Ttail member told us that and explained to us, that its not alloweded. We tried to fix it on the app, but the mobile app will not let me edit this to the correct passport number.We wrote to the Interrail Support yesterday but no conformation mail or something else is happend, what can i do further on? Is it possible to go further on with the trains if the number isnt correct or we get some issue with the train companies? We have our ID Cards but not the passport.
Does my Interrail global pass work for regional trains in the UK? So when im back from interrailing, would i be able to use my global pass for trains for Avanti, Cross country trains ect.I saw on this site you can but wasnt sure if that was global pass or just the Great Britain pass. https://www.interrail.eu/en/plan-your-trip/tips-and-tricks/trains-europe/trains-country/trains-great-britain
We want to go skiing by train come february 18 tot 25 and want to book the TGV Inoui from Lille Europe to Aime La Plagne. We are a family of 4 from Belgium Will we be able to use the Interrail pass one country and also WHEN Will we be able to book?Thank you!
Hi, looking up reservations on the Thalys on the EURail site and saw that reservations were required but no sign that reservations weren’t available for passholders. I bought my family EU passes because we are taking the train for several days, and then went back to make the reservation, and it’s no longer available because they have allocated all their seats to passholders. If I had known I couldn’t get a reservation with the pass I would not have bought it! What can I do besides just request refund?I feel like this is a flaw on their reservations page-- if a reservation is not available for pass holders, they should list it on their route itineraries, even if a pass is not yet added to the account!
Train is full: Is their a waiting queue for seat or sleeper reservations, in case they get cancelled?
There is a November 3 sleeper train leaving from Zurich to Vienna at 21:40 and arriving at 6:34 that looks to be completely sold out. Cannot even reserve a seat, let alone a sleeper, which is what I wanted.Is there a waiting queue for those who want a seat or sleeper reservation such that if a person possibly cancels a seat or sleeper reservation, I can come in as an alternate, akin to an alternate Olympian or a player coming off the bench? Or, this is basically a dead-end. Once it’s sold out, it’s done and just move on?I tried OBB, SBB, DB, etc. Nothing. I tried checking to see if I can a seat or sleeper reservation leaving from Vaduz, Lichtenstein to Vienna and that was sold out, too. It might be the same exact train and Vaduz is one stop along the path. I could be wrong.---In the meantime, I’m going to reserve 14:40 and 16:40 seat reservations from Zurich to Vienna. 15 Euro business class seats for a total of 30 Euros. Business class seats include seat reservations. Why two differen
Hello,I posted a few days ago regarding availability of the night train from Stockholm to Narvik on December 11th. We have continued to check the schedules every day and this morning tickets are available!! (YAY!) My next question, why are there no 1st class berths available? Am I searching incorrectly? Is it possible that the train only has 2nd class private sleeper berths? We are ok with 2nd class, but the private bathroom offered in 1st class would be our preference if it is available. Am I missing something? I’ve checked on both Vy and SJ. Any help is appreciated!
I am planning to travel this from Domodossola to Locarno this week, with a Eurail first class.I know I can book a seat on the website. I looked and many trains for the day I want have none or just 1 or 2 seats available. The seat map show a mix of “reserved” and “not available.”Does anyone know if all seats are reserved? Or are only some reserved, so its still likely there will be free seats even if you can’t / don’t reserve in advance?Thanks!
Hi all: I am catching this train tomorrow. I have seat reservation for number 2365. As you can see in Strasbourgh I have a short transfer ( 10 minutes). My question is if I miss that train at 11:21 from strasbourg to Basel, am I able to add journey in rail planner for another train scheduled for the same day. I have global euro rail pass 7 days in a month. Secondly are there passport control on either Paris east station or Strasbourg? Shall I be at station in Paris two hours before departure or if passport control is in strasbourg
Hello, tomorrow I want to travel from Marseille St Charles to Madrid-Puerta De Atocha with Train RSC 9731.Because it was planned at short notice I went to the ticket office at the train station in Marseille. Unfortunately, it was not possible for me to reserve a seat for the train tomorrow. I could only buy a ticket with a seat but since I already have the Interrail ticket I only need a seat. Unfortunately, there is no way to book the seat reservation online or via the app. What am I doing wrong? What option do I have now? Best regards, Max
Hi, I want some information that relates to choosing my pass. Are regional trains, such as Naples to Rome or Brussels to Bruges, counted as travel days with the pass, and are regional trains free with the pass? Also, if so, is any other public transport included with the pass?Thanks in advance for any help
Hello,I am trying to find a way to travel from Athens to Vienna during the Christmas season along with 3 kids (9,11,13). I don’t understand how the Interail planning system works. I am already stated in Athens what is my first destination, Athens or Vienna? I need to add travel days but I don’t know how much time each trip will take, I need to find this myself? Furthermore even though Greece is included in the pass Hellenic trains say on their site that trips to Sofia are not currently made. If I have a pass do I need to just find trips with seats to book on the days I need to travel? How will I book on the different train company sites without paying them?
Hello, I am wondering why multiple routes leaving from Geneva are no longer showing up on the app or the website despite the routes still running (e.g. Geneva-Lyon mid-morning departures 9:30, 11:30, 12:25; all Geneva-Paris direct trains). I was able to see them a few weeks ago for the same dates in late October. How should we get seat reservations if the routes don’t show up on the timetable anymore? I also tried to look for seat reservations on travel.b-europe but Geneva is no longer an option.
