HelloComplete newbie here thx for all info. For an Oct 1 departure I reserved a Train from Rome to Milan departing at 11:10am and Milan to Ventimiglia departing at 15:10, final destination is Nice. I booked the reservations using the Eurail website.On the Eurail App my 11:10am departing train doesn’t exist, their is a train departing at 10:50am but the train numbers don’t match. The Milan to Ventimiglia is the same departure time. To cover my butt (on the App) I tried to reserve the train departing at 10:50am but it says no reservations available. Argh!What do I need to do? I would imagine I need that 11:10am train I reserved on the website in my Eurail Pass? A reservation alone isn’t good enough from what I have read? You need a Eurail Pass ticket as well.Thx for any help. Brian from Gibsons, B.C. Canada
Journey from Firenze S.M.N. to Rome Airport Fuumicino on Eurail reservation site showed two journey options:Firenze S.M.N. to Roma Termini with 16 minutes to catch another train to Rome airport. However, the site shows ‘Some conditions apply’ that second class Eurail Pass holders need to buy a separate ticket to board the Rome Termini to Rome Airport train. The resevation fee for the train from Firenze S.M.N. to Roma Termini is 15 euros. Firenze S.M.N.to Roma Tiburtina with 17 minutes to catch another train to Rome Airport. The train from Roma Tiburtina to Rome Airport showed ‘You’re ready to board’. The reservation fee for the train from Firenze S.M.N.to Roma Tiburtina is 15 euros.So I understand -Firenze S.M.N. to Rome Airport Fuumicino via Roma Termini will cost 15 euros plus the price of ticket from Rome Termini to Rome Airport, whatever that is. Is that right? Firenze S.M.N. to Rome Airport Fuumicino via Roma Tiburtina witll cost 15 euros only as the train from Roma Tiburtina to
Hi everyone,I’m travelling with my elderly parents and noticed recently that trains from Zurich to Italy have changed route recently.Some of the trains now say reservation not required. I’m worried that we won’t be able to get a seat if you can’t reserve a seat on these trains. Is there a way to guarantee a seat on these trains? Please see below a screenshot for your reference. Also, the direct trains which say reservation required on the app then say on the reservation website that prices are unavailable- are these booked out?Thanks all!Waz
I’m having trouble booking seat reservations with my paper pass. The website takes me to a page where I have to choose which trip I'd like to book reservations for, so I made a trip, but I need to add travellers to the trip, and this is is where it goes wrong. I’m clicking ‘add a traveller’ which takes me to a page where I have to choose mobile or paper pass, so I choose the ‘paper pass’ option, and instead of taking me to a new page, it just takes me back to the page where I have to choose the trip. So basically it’s just a cycle.
We only have an online seat reservation and it’s unlikely that we’ll be able to get a paper copy before we board our train (in Spain). What will be the consequences for us when we show the ticket collector our reservations on our phone instead of paper? Eurail tells us they must be on paper but doesn’t say what will happen when we try and use the online ones.
We are a group of 8 all first timers using the inter rail pass.We have our itinerary sorted, we have purchased our Eurostar seat reservations outward and return.The first day we are travelling from the midlands to Berlin, question is what do we do regarding activating passes /recording journeys taken?Also when required to show proof of validity to travel what are you required to show? CheersAndy
My sweetheart and I are visiting Germany and Italy in September/October. Should we purchase a 3 day Eurail pass from DB to travel from Frankfurt to Munich on the 21st and then Munich to Venice on the 23rd or buy individual tickets? I’ve heard you can buy a “Twin Pass” to save money also. I haven’t seen them on the DB site though. Whats the best way….Will we need to make seat reservations for the Venice trip on TrenItalia?Any advice is appreciated...Thank youNorman
Hello,I am having difficulty finding a night train from Milan to Geneva, or Milan to Lyon, that does not involve long waits at a station in the middle of the night or the early hours. For me, this defeats the object of a night train: board it in the evening and wake up at the destination!Thank you for any help or clarification you can bring, Brian.
The recent derailment in the St Gotthard tunnel is likely to impact the EuroCity service between Zurich and Milan. I’ve got a reservation on the Zurich → Milan EC for the evening of 1st Sept. TrenItalia is being unclear, suggesting that normal service may be restored by then. Public media suggests otherwise.My problem is a connection to the ongoing sleeper from Milan → Bari.Does anyone have better information on the service impact? CheersAhado
Hi folks -First time here, so apologies if I’m in the wrong place, or asking the wrong kind of question!I have a reservation for next Monday, 21st Aug, (made last week through interrail.eu) for x2 passengers from Basel to Bologna (changing in Milan). But I have just received an SMS from Trenitalia to say the first leg of this (EuroCity 153, Basel-Milan, Dep 15:03) is cancelled.😒 The message was not entirely clear on the cause, but googling around indicates that it is presumably due to the recent freight train derailment in the Gotthard tunnel (but that’s a week ago, so unclear why they are only cancelling NOW).Anyway, I’m now trying to find an alternative routing, but don’t think I can trust the interrail planner (which seems to still show the original service). So any help or advice would be appreciated.NB: my journey actually starts in Paris. I have a separate reservation from Paris to Strasbourg arriving at 12:41. I was planning to make an (unreserved) connection to Basel (arriving
basically my question is if I can get into a train that, let’s say, leaves at 17.00h even though I made a seat reservation for that same train but a few minutes later, for instance, 17.35h. my friends and I are booking seats and we are trying to leave time gaps between the different trains we are catching in prevision of something going wrong. but we wondered: if nothing went wrong and we were able to catch and earlier train than the one we booked, if it would be legal to get it. thaaanks
Next month, I’m planning to travel on trains from Frankfurt to Amsterdam, and then from Amsterdam to Brussels. Both the services I wish to travel on seem to require an additional supplement to be paid - but it’s not really clear why. Can anyone help/explain? Also, I have already made a seat reservation on the Frankfurt-Amsterdam train - would that cover the supplement in this case, or do I still need to pay the supplement separately?
Hi we are travelling from Vienna to Salzburg and would like to take the Semmering Railway scenic route. Can you recommend the best way to plan this journey and are there only high speed trains out of Vienna on this route? Travelling in early September. Thanks .. Mazzy
I'm coming to Sofia 3 days before I want to take the night train to Istanbul. As I understand it I have to get a seat reservation at the Sofia train station. Does anyone know if my partner and I can count on getting two beds in a coach just three days before, or if I should look at some other option?
Who can help me? Today I start my Interrail journey and I first take a domestic train to Utrecht Central Station, after which I transfer to the night train to Innsbruck Hbf. When I travel on my Interrail Global Pass, does this mean I already use 2 travel pass days due to using the domestic train? Or is it about the moment of boarding?
Booked a return ticket with my last day of pass but the website is counting 2 days because i leave tonight and arrive tomorrow ..?
Hi everybody ! You would be of a great help here !I’m in Italy, at Perugia, returning to France tonight (arrival at 1 in the afternoon at Frasne).I booked the seats needed on the journey before, am entering the journey on my pass as it’s my last day (out of 5) but the app divide my trip into two journeys one today, the other one tomorrow, how can I do to make them join ?At least are there any possibilities to cancel the opening of this day ? thank you very very much !!
HelloI am grateful for any help that can be given as we seem to have messed up with the interail pass. We have booked accommodation Saturday 19th in Annecy and we were hoping to travel from Narbonne to Annecy. (We live in Valencia but due to using one of our inbound journeys which we didn’t realise we have to drive to France to be able to use our pass so we can start at a different station if needed). We then have accommodation in Chamonix from 21st to 25th. we basically need to travel on the 19th August from somewhere close to the Spanish border to Annecy and then back to our starting point from Chamonix on the 25th. I have looked and cannot make reservations on any trains, any ideas on how to do this. We have 3 small children so a very long journey isn’t ideal but I appreciate we may just need to take what we can get at this point. Many thanks for any ideas
