Munich Airport to downtown with the Pass
My husband and I will be going to Munich arriving on March 7. This is the first time I have used the pass, and it is on my phone. If I had a paper ticket I think I could figure this out.My question is how do I get the QR code on my phone to show the conductor I have paid for the train from the airport to downtown Munich HBF? There are many to choose from, and I don’t know which train we will need. I put two of the schedules in the phone, but until we are there, I don’t know which one we will use. I can see there are next steps to do, IF you know which trip you will use, and then I assume the code will pop up. When do I show them the proof we have a Eurail pass? I have our passport numbers in the phone app, so I think I have it all in order. I have other reservations for this trip that I could print a ticket, and it had a QR code. That part I am not worried about, it is this very first trip from the Munich airport.

Madrid to Cordoba seat reservation
we have purchased a 2 month global Eurail pass for Spain & Portugal, Our trip begins in Spain on June 1st 2023. All accommodation bookings have been made so we know exactly on what dates we’ll be traveling from city to city in Spain and Portugal .Our question is regarding seat reservations. We’re aware that seat reservations cannot be booked online for these countries & need to be made either at a ticket office or at the station.We arrive Madrid 1st June & wish to take train straight to Cordoba. Do we run any risk of not being able to make a seat reservation when we arrive in Spain? Because of time of year we’re concerned we won’t get on the train. Is there some way we can secure a booking before arriving in Madrid?We are currently in New Zealand and will be the UK from the 10th May.Any help much appreciated
How to plan/create an Eurail journey
We are planning a two-month trip through Europe for this summer. We’ve activated our Global passes because we know our first date of train travel. However, we can’t add actual trips yet (for some mysterious reason), so we’re adding them manually. But how do those manually entered trips turn into trips that will be honored once we start using the passes?This system is extremely confusing, and we’re hoping for some really helpful guidance.Kate Sibley
Pass help please? Travelling in Norway
So myself and my teenage child are heading to Norway in July we fly in to Bodo and will be travelling via train over a 4 week period in to the middle of August. Norway has an 8 day within one month pass so do i need to count how many days travel for July then how many days travel for August and buy a different pass for both months or does the month just mean 30/31 days. I am so confused
Night train + last travel day
Hello, my last travel day is the 4.3. and I was planning on taking a night train because I read that it only counts as one day. I sadly can't activate it because it tells me that I need another travel day. I am not switching trains after midnight. I also already bought the Reservation.Do you know what I can do to make it work?
Ambiguous reservation system
I don't know if member's are aware, that if you book Amsterdam to London. Eurail have no direct trains, but you have to book 2 separate trains, one from Amsterdam to Brussels either IC or Thalys, change in Brussels and go through security, before boarding Eurostar.I got caught out by the website and finished up with a Brussels to London ticket. I have to now book at extra cost Amsterdam to Brussels with all the hassle of security in Brussels, and making sure my train arrives early enough. But I can't do this until 90 days before.I have tried to cancel or reschedule my trip through both Eurail and Eurostar to no avail, they just don't want to know.I reckon they take your money then abandon you.Be careful with booking on the Eurail website.
We Fly in to Norway in July and will be travelling for a month.If i buy the interrail pass does this only cover main routes ? We will be using Bodo to Trondheim. Trondheim to Tonsberg Tonberg to Oslo .We will also need to use local trains to go sight seeing and get to our home stays not sure if local rail journeys are included. We may also do the Norway in a Nutshell tour as well. We are mum and teenager.

Munich - Zagreb sleeper - OBB recommended inferior option - can I do anything
Hello all, I would appreciate hearing your thoughts on this. We have 2 first class interrail tickets. We want to get a sleeper from Munich to Zagreb on 16 March. I looked on OBB and it looks as though there is something happening and we can’t get on the sleeper from Munich. OBB’s system said to change at Salzburg very early in the morning. I therefore booked a sleeper from Salzburg to Zagreb. However, I recently checked on DB and it is coming up with a better option - to change at Augsburg at 11pm-ish. We would be able to get to bed at around 11pm rather than after 2am. See below: Can anyone shed any light on why this happened and offer any advice? Thank you!
Nightjet OBB from Freiburg to Duisburg for German citizens
Hiwe would like to travel to Denmark from Freiburg, Germany, to get a ferry there to Norway.It is possible to take the ÖBB Nightjet from Freiburg to Duisburg (starts 00:05) and then from Duisburg on another trains to cross the border as an outbound Traveldays? Someone said, this is not possible for people living in Germany, because the Nightjet is an Austrian train and does not cross the border to Denmark. It only would be possible to take the Night IC (which is actually the same train, but the German part with no cabins) to do this part as an outbound travel. Is this correct?And, in case it is incorrect, where could I buy the tickets for the NJ then, online?Gerne auch Antworten in Deutsch.Viele Grüße aus Freiburg.
Travel as a group (18 adults) - Can one person plan the trip for everyone?
Hello! I'm representing a choir from Sweden who will travel to Switzerland and Germany for a tour, and if possible we will do this by train! But, as you probably know, there can be some concerns planning for a larger group. Regarding Interrail-passes and the app. What can I, (as self-appointed reiseleiter), do to make it easier and what do every individual have to do? Can I book all of my companions seat-reservations through my app/mobile? Can I add destinations/plan the trip in my app/mobile and share it with my companions?Basically, can I do everything in advanced, so my companions just have to bring their mobile pass and show it for the conductor? … also, we’re 18 adults. Is there a group-discount? regardsGabriel
What I understood so far about the interrail pass
Hi community!We plan to go to Switzerland and Italy next week. We have a 2month pass. I’ve read a lot of the comments in the forum and I would like to ask someone to look over my shoulder to see if I making any thinking errors.I get on the train in Germany and leave Germany on the same day. When the conductor comes I show him the Interrail app with QR code. My wife shows her own app. Correct?On every day I travel I add a trip. If I hop off the train, I can continue the same day and just add a new trip. Correct?If I make a trip in Italy, I add a trip in the Rail planner and I make a seat reservation in the ÖBB app. I pay the reservation with paypall. If the conductor comes, I show the Interrail app and then I open the ÖBB app for the reservation. Correct?On our way back to Germany, I plan the night train from Innsbruck. It’s important to travel this last piece in Germany on one day. Correct?If I go to the Netherlands, I plan to go accross the border on my own costs ( I live only 10 mil
