Hi!I’m trying to plan my trip, but unfortunately the seat reservations system is a nightmare.I read the guides here, even the one from The man on seat 61, but it’s still not clear. I want to travel from Barcelona to Heidelberg on 2/9. There are several options, I would like to use the one that is 10:33 → 22:53. But I’m flexible, so I can change that to any of the other 3 options that arrive the same day.I’m trying to make a reservation at Interrail.eu .But all the options have an issue.The one I mentioned, doesn’t allow to book the train Paris Est - Mannheim. I read over here that this should be made by phone and they send it via post mail to your address? Will it arrive on time? Another option is 08:22 → 21:49. In this case, I can’t book Barcelona - Lyon, should I go to the train station and directly book there? But then in the same journey, I can’t book Paris - Karlsruhe. So what happens if I book Barcelona Lyon, only to find out that Paris - Karlsruhe is sold out? How do you go abou
Hello, We are traveling from Tirano to Chur with the eurail pass on a panoramic train without a reservation, hopeful to use the carriages that do not require reservations. Does anyone know how many carriages a regional train has? Perhaps slightly paranoid but how do we make sure we get a seat on a train without reserving the seats? Thanks!
Hi, I have lived in the UK for over 10 years with an indefinite leave to remain visa but I have a Japanese passport. I have been using the indefinite leave to remain visa to enter the UK and to prove my residence for the past decade at immigration. However I have seen some people say that I need some sort of European residence card to prove my residence and that the visa does not count. Is this true? The visa is the only evidence I have. Thanks in advance :)
Hello, do you know if I can have two Interrail Passes at the same time? I need a second pass for the next part of my travels. But during that time I am going back to Germany twice which means that I need one outbound and two inbound tickets. Is it possible to save one of my travel days of my first ticket to use ist for one of the inbound trips?
Hello I am planning a trip from Munich to Venice, then Florence, and finally back to Munich. To save money, I purchased an Interrail pass.When I tried to book seats using the Interrail website, I noticed that it costs more than 130 euros for 2 adults and one child under 7 for just a one-way journey from Florence to Munich.For the outbound travel, I managed to book a ticket using the DB website, which only cost me less than 9 euros.Now, I have a few questions:How can I book seats for my Interrail pass? Is there a specific website where I can book seats for my travel? Should I use the Interrail pass for traveling between Venice and Florence as well?I want to make the most cost-effective choices for my trip, so any advice or recommendations are welcome. Thank you!
Can I travel from Bordeaux in my home country to London (via Lille or Paris) using international pass? Although doable in a day, because I need to change trains to get on the Eurostar, does this count as more than one trip within my home country ? ie the first trip (Bordeaux to Paris or Lille would not be to cross the border).
Hello! I am planning to visit Rome, Florence, Venice, Amsterdam and Paris. I want to train from Rome to Florence, Florence to Venice, then fly to Amsterdam and train from Amsterdam to Paris - all within one month. I am hoping someone can help me in which pass will work the best for me 😄 Thanks so much!
Travelling from Stroud UK to La Ciotat France in the last week of May 2024. Day 1 Fri 24th or Sat 25th MayStroud to LondonLondon to ParisParis to Marseille Marseille to La Ciotat Same return journey. As we’re not stopping at multiple locations other than to get connecting trains, do you think it would be cheaper to buy regular train tickets rather than an interrail pass (plus supplements for Eurostar and Paris to Marseille)? From my initial browse it looks equally costed as the Eurostar without interrail is expensive as is the Paris to Marseille leg. I’m drawn to the interrail pass as we used it for a longer trip this year and found it really easy to use. We’ll only be away for between 7-9 days. Our intention is to not fly. Any advice recommended.
I’m few weeks before travel . My first stop in Zurich airport and from there I take train to Zermatt . I have been in Switzerland many times but first time with Eurail GP . When should I put train time ? If I put in advance I could be late . And how to create planner on paper ? Thank you Natalie
New traveler here. Some friends and I are flying to Copenhagen in November. We want to also go to Sweden and Norway. It looks like the Scandinavia adult pass may be the way to go. Does this pass also let us take local trains (sorry for my lack of knowledge) or does it only permit travel between the countries.Also, if we are only traveling 5 out of 8 days would it be cheaper to buy train passes instead of the rail pass? THANKS!

Hello all, I have a query regarding my first class interrail ticket.The main reason I got a first class ticket was for long journeys. I have sciatica and it helps to have a bit more leg room. I thought it might also allow me to use lounges if I have a longer stay at a station.It's also such a small amount extra for first class (when already spending so much on a pass) that I thought "go on, spoil yourself".I know some trains will not have first class and for short journeys I am fine sitting anywhere. I started my journey today, travelling from Vilnius to Kaunas for the day (I started my journey in Helsinki but decided to do the Baltics by bus and have an extra 10 days).On the journey to Kaunas I made the ticket and the guard scanned my QR code with no issues.Fast forward to the evening, and travelling back to Vilnius the guard questions why I am sat in second class with a first class ticket.Am I supposed to travel first class if there is a first class seating area? The train is less
Do I need to add the journey to the pass (by switching the yellow button on) on the RailPlanner app before I board the train?Because from past trips I have done this, but when the ticket inspector asks for my interrail pass, the app has not registered the journey and I have to do this procedure again before showing my ticket. The app has these constant bugs.My friend got a fine because of this? Is this a possibility?
I will be arriving in Spain September 21. Eurail says in order to get a seat reservation for a Spanish train that isn't available on their website, I need to go to a train station when I arrive in Spain or call the Renfe office. My questions are:1. I want to go from Granada to Ronda on the 29th and there is only one reasonable train per day (2 hrs. vs. 4½ hrs.). Is it highly likely that I will be able to get a seat reservation on that train on the 29th by going to the train station in Madrid on the 21st? 2. The Eurail website says: “Pre-reserving a seat is possible. You will receive a PNR code which you must use to pick up and pay for your reservation at a local station ticket office, making sure to show your Eurail Pass. After the booking, you must collect your reservation within 72 hours. The reservation can only be booked up to 24 hours before the train departure time. After this time the pre-reservation will expire." This makes no sense to me. How can I collect my reservation
Thanks in advance for always being helpful. I have booked seat only reservations through DB and OBB directly for trains from Berlin to Prague, Munich to Salzburg and Salzburg to Zurich. Now I’m confused as to how to find our seats on these trains. I have receipts but they don’t list seats. Should they? I need to activate my Eurail pass and then add the train to our tickets I believe but then what? Any help with walking me through the process step by step would help ease this travel anxiety prone traveler!
Hi there i am buying a 10 day interrail global pass. I wanted to travel from London for example tomorrow via eurostar to Holland then return on the 28th, then i travel again on the 1st of September via eurostar to switzerland via france then return to London via eurostar before the 10th day? Is that permitted to tavel on the eurostar twice in August then September? Please i need genuine answers as have children with me thanks!
Dear Community, maybe someone knows… So we need to reserve seats for the EC from Bern to Milan, at least within Italy. When I enter Domodossola-Milano, it is 3 passengers x 12eur = total 36eur. Makes sense ;)When I enter Bern-Milan (since we don’t want to change seats in the middle of the trip) the price is 135eur!! Does that then include the ride itself - we don’t need a SBB ticket to Domodossola? We have half-fare-card and junior card for the child travelling, I believe the ride Bern-Domodossola isn’t worth 99eur. I tried booking just the reservation Bern-Milan via oebb and sbb, neither offers this... Thank you so much!!
Hello!My mum and I are travelling through Europe this winter, starting in London and ending in Venice. We are spending christmas in Colmar, France and want to do some scenic railways for two/three days through Switzerland and then end in Venice. Are most of the scenic railways not covered by the Eurorail pass? Is it then worth getting the SwissTravel Pass? Does anyone have some recommendations on routes… All and any advice is appreciate
